• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

and then if you could tell me that maybe you could tell me if I paid twice when upgrading tonight to the Lifetime Member, which I'm not sure I even needed to do (so maybe I paid 3 times), as I loaded all credit card info for payment and then I get a payment receipt from PayPal?

On my laptop top about dead center top there is a search bar. I typed in "potato" it worked. On my I phone top right there is a magnifying glass looking little icon. That will bring up the search bar. might have to turn the phone sideways.

I am on my laptop computer and do not see anything that resembles a search bar. The only thing I see that resembles any kind of a search function is this little magnifying glass thing to the far right side of the blue banner at the very top of the page next to my username. Mine does not appear "active" at this time?

So here's what I found with regard to the search box which, as most of you probably know, is located to the far right in the blue banner at the very top just left and next to the username. I found I had to reduce my Windows to 90% in order for the search box to be fully displayed and "active". At 100% the search box is squeezed and not fully displayed and, as a result, is not" active".

Can't help with website specifics, but I can tell you how to do the most thorough and effective search on this forum. Go to Google, type in your search words, then type "snowest" as your first or last word.

I think you will now find that the internal Search Engine works far better than Google does.
