Has anyone made an attempt to contact any of the old sponsors to see if they would be interested in leaving VS and coming over here?

I think you will see some of the good sponsors come -- but only once a stable platform is established and things have quieted down some.  It will also be depend upon the quality of posts here.

A lot of the advertisers are pi**ed in the industry in regard to VS.  Nothing like getting your ad rate hiked to silliness just to share a page with other blinking graphics.  DML was a prime example of this now -- higher advertising rate, less exposures and still give the DML member discount.  Most of the banner ads on the site were from others who had never been on the site, know of the site, visited the site, and disregarded the "member discount" that the long-term advertisers created for paying members.  My favorite ads are the "home and garden" ones!

Hopefully the DMF puts together a reasonable approach in how to make banner / advertising and sponsorship work.  And primarily use companies that actually PARTICIPATE within the DMF itself and are visible within the Ducati community itself.

I was looking at advertising on the DML for my summer launch of products.  After talking with VS, I almost deleted my profile.  Then again, they blocked my IP days after that for my home / shop and a friends shop where I accessed the DML.  Go figure...

Welcome Dave!
I was a longtime member at .ms and appreciate your input there.
I'd just signed up at "the other Monster board"
...and it imploded.
Good to see you didn't get trapped in the rubble when it did!

I guess it would be mean to punish the sponsors that continue to support the other board.  I've ordered a lot of stuff from quite a few sponsors and thought about leaning on them but then had second thoughts because they were great.  I just hope they come over and give us some support.

Some of them have contracts for quarterly or yearly rates.  Thus cancelling isn't an option.

My only rules for sponsors is this -- are they "active" on the board itself?  Do they help others even if they don't necessarily generate revenue due to the post itself?  Look at the best in the industry -- Dave R / Seattle, Chris / CA-CycleWorks, etc.  Those are the kind of sponsors you want because they are enthusiasts first as well as passionate about Ducati's and motorcycles in general.  I wish more sponsors would emulate their behaviour!

Im sure I will be spending some quality time here,

it is truly hard for me to believe the BS that VS created, but it warms my heart to know that they lost out bigtime $$$wise, I mean cmon, that forum is less than worthless now and they must have paid some good money for it!!!

Anyways, I will gladly help out the members with discounts, and advice/help whenever possible... plus stay tuned for our project bike pics to start showing up...

I see you sell RS Taichi...great stuff...I own a set.

How about fixing the links in your site so I can see prices?

Hell yes it is!!!

I have only been working on this site for about 2.5 weeks now, so trust me, I know that I have a lot of work ahead of me... (I still barely know what I am doing with the sitebuilding software...)

anyways,

I posted up a quick price list here ; http://www.1098-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10814

along with some grand opening specials.

Enjoy!!
