I just wanted to take a few moments to update you all on the youtube channel. Thank you all for joining this forum. It’s purpose is for me to keep up to date with you all about the channel and for regular watchers to stay in touch with each other. I have noticed that some of you have started to form friendships and meet up in your own country. This is really good news as it helps us all to help each other. There are many great forums out there. Some of them have been going for many years and have a huge following with a wealth of combined knowledge so if you are a member of one of these forums, please pass on that information in the relevant category on here.
Some of you would have noticed that the videos have slowed up over the last month. This is for a number of reasons. Firstly, I am over run with work. I work 7 days a week and up to 18 hours a day in 3 separate jobs. This makes video time very difficult given that each video requires 2 people to be available at the same time and takes between 6 and 20 hours to prep, film, edit, render and upload. The camera man and tech person (Mitch) also works in high level cyber security and has to be on call to deal with emergencies.
In addition to this, I have had a problem with trolls from another forum, The weather is starting to turn bad, my house has been flooded on 2 levels and the missus has had enough of cars and parts all over the house and garden.
Both Mitch and myself have taken some time from work in this coming week and there are plans to catch up with some of the video back log. If you have requested a video on this forum, it has not been forgotten and by doing the request here, it will remain visible until completed. There is presently a back log of more than 100 video requests and some of the bigger ones will now have to wait until the weather improves so please be patient.
A number of you have contacted me about the Joes Gems section being removed. I have had to do this for a number of reasons.
I would first like to clear up any misunderstanding that some of you have. I am not a business. The parts that I sell on Joes gems are where I have had to buy volume in order to get good discounts and any surplus parts are sold on to you at my discounted cost price. I also sell on any additional parts that I have had made to help out the rest of the community. The money from these sales, goes to charity if you have paid by paypal.
I am struggling to find the time to pack items for shipping at the moment so I would rather not keep people waiting. I have also sold out of many of the parts that I had a surplus of. The category will return as soon as I have time to refresh it and can meet same day shipping time.
You are welcome to send me a private message if you wanted something from this category and you don’t mind a delay in postage. If I still have it, I will do my best to help you.
Finally. Could I remind everyone that I do the youtube channel and forum for free. I do not receive any funding, sponsorship or endorsements. Everything is paid for out of my own pocket. All I ask from people is a little bit of politeness. There have been a number of messages left on youtube saying “do a video on how to ???”
No name, hello, please or thank you. Maybe I’m getting old or from a different generation that believed that a little politeness was important. Is this the way people get things done now or are they just rude? Either way, I won’t reply.
