I heard that they sold last November or December. However, I have not received an email or seen any formal information on this. I've read tons of posts from other members about this and that's it.

I'm not sure about the Smokin Bucks thing. But it sure would be nice if the owner would be so kind to let the members of this site know what's going on. How hard would that be? A simple email or post would be appreciated and might take whole 15 minutes to compose if any thought is put into it... The new company needs to be more hands on with its members and COMMUNICATE with its members.

:cheers:

That's my point. Why are the smokin bucks worthless? I have not seen anything about this.
I don't really care, but I would like to see a sticky on things like this for those us us that don't visit the forum everyday.

Oh well....

Thanks!

Probaly because this isnt a family run place anymore.Its a big buisness dot com. You can also forget the great contests too. But I bet they will be willing to keep taking supporter money.

if they wanted to tell us publicly it should of been posted in every topic. I did not know till yesterday but I have noticed people that were regular posters have stoped & some have left and even took all they're pics down. I did notice a big change on the facebook page, up untill december there was action everyday and then nothing, I would think they would have posted it on there too.
I hope everyone thats left sticks around, but if everyone bails let us know were your going and we'll see ya there.

I agree and I think it would have gone over better if they had been honest up front rather than the BS that there doing now.
