Note that the proposals have never originated from that which would benefit, Chuck.

He has said time and again, no pay site. Why do lumberheads continue to beat this horse to death?

though i see your point chuck on the banners paying ur bills, extra money? if lawnsite can pay ur bills, plus give u extra money, and if payed would also help weed out unwanted annoyances wouldnt it be worth it?

Lawnguy -

Because it's a good idea. If telling somebody multiple times about a good idea is a lumberhead, make mine a 4"x4". Maybe I'll achieve 6"x6" status by year's end.

Chuck's got the crack-dealer thing down...He's been giving it away for awhile, and people now have a taste for it. Any good capitalist knows what comes next.

And the banners paying the bills - Ok, I guess...But if my customers told me that they'd be OK with me charging them 10% more and expect nothing more in return, well, hmmmm.

Now, if I understand correctly, he is also working for JA, which I'm sure takes up a good deal of time, so the time may not be there to dedicate to this idea.

That is Chuck Smith that works for JA, not Chuck Keough. It is Chuck Keough who is the owner of Lawnsite.com and Plowsite.com. Chuck Smith is a Moderator at Plowsite.com and works for JA. They are both busy it seems.

Y'know, as I was typing that I was crossing my fingers that I had the Chucks and their jobs right. Looks like I made it to 6"x6" already.

Thanks for the correction.

A lot of members have made that mistake, so don't feel bad.

BTW, the biggest piece of lumber I ever cut was a 6x16 exposed beam ceiling rafters at a club house outside of Chicago. The hips for this roof were 38' long and had to be shipped in special from Washington. I triple checked my measurements and angles when I cut those hip rafters.

My point, you have a ways to go just being at a 6x6.

Some times I feel like I'm the 6x16.

I would suggest that those of you who seem to disagree with the way Chuck runs HIS business (does he tell you how to run yours, or what to charge?) start your own pay site forum, then report back to us and let us know of your blazing success.

Lawngay,

Wasn't that the same scenario I suggested to you when you complained about Lawnsite? You must of felt it worthy of passing along to others.

Lawnguy - Is that how you are on the jobsite, with your employees, too?

"You have a suggestion?!? For me?!? Go start your own company and you can suggest all you want!!"

That's a great way to go about it. I'd recommend continuing with that policy.
