Best Wishes to the Oasis

I just randomly dropped in to the Tent to see what was happening


I haven’t been around much as you all know

many here think I am a judas or cretin or something

I see some posts eluding to the Rambus Site as not paying its way

for the server and being dismayed that YOU paid for the Rambus Site to become a pay site

Here is some clarification on that front

On the sidebar at Goldtent you will see there have been tentathons to pay for the server fees

The last tentathon was over 1 year ago

Someone had to give their credit card to the Host (Lunarpages) to pay for the server

That someone has always been me

The tentathon was successful every year

we raised enough money to reimburse me (minus my $100) donation as well

The Rambus site was set up 2 years ago

we used the same server as goldtent for expedience

The first year the hits were rather small and negligable

But the server costs increased as we migrated to a larger server

the tentathon was still great and covered 2 thirds of the server fee

I covered the rest personally and was reimbursed by Rambus Chartology

The Server now costs $3600 a year

As you will notice there has been NO tentathon this year BUT

I have paid Lunarpages $3600

This has kept the tent and Rambus Chartology humming along for the last 12 months

NOBODY has paid anything for the last 12 plus months

Except for me…Fullgoldtraitor

When the topic of the tentathon came up recently I spoke with wanka

we agreed that Rambus Chartology should pay a portion of the Server fees

and Goldtentathon a portion

we agreed that Rambus used 2 thirds and goldtent used 1 third

so Rambus would pay $2400 and Goldtent $1200

I realized that after 3 years of a devastating bear market the Goldtenters were

hurting and probably not in the best of moods to pay via a tentathon

so I decided to just pay the whole $3600 out of pocket and that is what I did

The payments are monthly for some of the services and yearly for others

the big hit was last month

Rambus and Audept are reimbursing me for their portion

So all in all Rambus Chartology has paid in full for the last year of service to keep

the 2 sites working

NOBODY knows how hard Audept has worked over the many years Goldtent has been in existence

to keep it running smoothly

If we had to pay him for his services even at $10 an hour we would own him a ton

BUT alas..He did this work as a labour of love and has never asked for a red cent

Unfortunately …and I am being as frank and candid as possible here

Audept and wanka had a falling out…which I tried to mediate but failed

I have no clue what precipitated this falling out

but the result was that Audept can no longer dedicate his time to the maintenance of goldtent

I suppose that is what has precipitated this migration to a new site

This is the first I have heard of this

THESE are the cold hard facts

Sorry I haven’t been around to monitor the situation

NOBODY contacted me personally to warn me of this situation

Since I am being candid here

I will say..my absence has been because we have a forum at Rambus Chartology

which I am moderating and it has consumed all of my computer time

Also This site has for long periods of time degenerated into such negativity

that I couldn’t bear to participate anymore

YES…Ramus Chartology is a pay site…BUT NOBODY here was tricked into supporting it

ALL the $100 donations over the years went into supporting Goldtent …period

By being involved with Rambus Chartology I have learned that the PM Markets are NOT NOT NOT

all about Manipulation all day every day

I bought that theory hook line and sinker for years

I was a big cheerleader fort that cause here…even shouted down the few who dared to question it

But my eyes have been opened to so much more and I and my portfolio have benifited greatly from this

new perspective .

I Love you guys..and am devastated that the tent is in disarray and facing the end

I used to love to update the Locator every time we had a new member show up

I painstakingly added thousands of links to the sidebar during those great boom years

We lost so many good posters..I believe because of the negativity and doom which has prevailed here

during this devastating period..and there were so few new ones that I suppose you could say

we have been dying a slow death anyway

Anyhow I would like to hear from Floridagold Ipso facto and Wanka as to what is going on

Bottom line..whoever spread the rumor that Fully and Audept were shysters who stole your money

should be ashamed

I wish all my good friends here the best of good fortune in the coming years
