I echo what SeaDawg says and add a thanks to those that help the Moderators by reporting Spam and other issues with our Forum.  This really does make our jobs easier.

 I’m continually amazed at the knowledge and expertise of members on this forum.  It’s nice to know I can come with an issue and get lots of relevant input.  I wonder what a rally with 5,000 would look like!  Mike

A reason to celebrate, and also a reason to be cautious.   This forum has been great for support and ideas.  But considering that there are only something over 700 Oliver trailers out there now, a number that big of 5,000 forum members means actual Oliver owners are the minority, with the rest made up of future owners with orders pending (another 100-200?), plus those with a future interest in possibly buying, and also internet trolls and spammers as well.  Even assuming all 700 or so current owners are registered here and double it for couples, so call it 1,400, owners are still the minority.  And as it gets bigger it will get even more attention on the internet.  So be careful about your posts and avoid including personal info such as phone number and e-mail addresses.  Even posting your whereabouts in real time when traveling is a risk.  I'm even starting to think that listing a hull number might be a bad idea as we've seen a recent example of a bogus RV Trader ad with a real hull number and contact info of a forum member here.   

But enough ranting.  🙂    A BIG thank you to the moderators on here for keeping the problems to a minimum.

That is all very good advice.

Our administration have been a big help in spa m control, as well,  from a software controls standpoint. I'll add a big thanks here to jason and Matt, too.

I would note that the scam posting of an Oliver hull # was a cut and paste of the original owner's old ad.

Oliver makes great products and obviously values supporting a healthy community where owners and interested parties can ask and answer questions, share ideas and otherwise communicate. 

A big thank you and high marks to the administrators and moderators for keeping the forum on a positive path. Both of these roles can be difficult and often times thankless, but in my opinion are being done consistently well here.
