Our new S260 is here after 6 long months!!! In Liquid Blue!!!!
:huh:Yes Vishus this is a Lotus lover's site. I dont own a Lotus......yet, but....I do have all of passion for these cars. My intentions here were to just show new product and assist anyone that was interested. My thread has had over 10,000 hits so I think people are interested in the Lotus' I have for sale. When our S260 arrived yesterday I was like a kid at christmas!! Very excited! BEAUTIFUL car!!......then.......ISSUES with posting pics, I dont understand? If you guys want me gone, no problem. Still debating whether asking the Admin's to pull my thread...but at the very least Im probably not going to post anything here any longer. So you win....Im 'tapping' out!
Hey Randy....or who ever is blocking my access to post my new S260 pics............ Ill ask Lotus tomorrow it this is proper for this site......... I know they dont run the site(Oh but do they look at it........YES!!!!) ...........but since I've Doubled the Lotus sales at Rothrock from last year........they will read this post!! BELIEVE ME!!
I still don't understand the statement that this is a dealer site.
Far from it...the way I understand it is that dealers, as a courtesy, can participate and freely advertise to this tailored audience - but I don't believe Lotus Talk (formerly Elise Talk) was ever put here for the purpose of just selling cars for Lotus. Otherwise, Lotus would have their own site like this. And if that were the case, then it would be impactful and appropriate to go to them and complain. But that isn't the case.
I get the relationship here and what a value a forum like this can be for both the product manufacturer and buyer/owner - but there is a bit of professionalism that needs to be exhibited by representatives of the manufacturer when it isn't their site.
Also - just to add to what mcoupe said - another thought would have been to upload the photos on Rothrocks own site then paste the images here from there or link to the car on the Rothrock site. Just an alternative that might have possibly driven more traffic to your site.
Dave - I don't speak for the forum but I think as enthusiasts we all want Lotus to be successful and sell as many cars as they can - I think where I am lost is the attitude and seemingly immediate defensiveness exhibited. According to the time stamp I see - this was around midnight - I mean come on?
