Hey Jaybee!!

Good to hear from you and thanks for putting a smile back on my face too.

As per our previous discussions and after much thought, I thought I would give things another go as there’s just nowhere else for BISF owners to get help and assistance apart from here.

I also didn’t want to deny the majority due to the actions of a few if you know what I mean.

I hope you’re keeping well Jaybee. It’s good that we have had some nice weather too after that long cold winter. It’s certainly lifted my spirits my friend.

Glad to be back  😀

I’m also so pleased this site is back up and running – i was devastated! Having bought our first BISF property almost 2 years ago I’ve learnt so much about it through all of the topics and posts on here! So helpful!

Thank you for your kind comments Jo, they really are appreciated.

I set the site up back in 2011 as at that time there was absolutely no accurate or reliable information to be found anywhere regarding BISF properties.

The little information that was published, in my view, was incredibly misleading and I would go so far as to say damaging toward BISF houses and in particular, their resale value.

It was going to be an enormous task to change the public’s perception, but after seven years, we can now witness the positive impact that our community has made in relation to this.

I am proud of what we achieved and I am thankful to everyone who has ever contributed to our site with content or even comments. I guess there will always be times when one wonders if what they are doing is worthwhile. I often wonder this after typing a long reply in relation to a question, or when someone is seeking help or advice yet they don’t even bother to reply back or even say thank you for our efforts. I’m sure other members feel this way too when they reply to a post too and don’t receive a reply as it makes us wonder why we bother.

However, after closing the site down I received an avalanche of e-mails from both visitors and members expressing sadness and disappointment over the closure.

I soon realised that I was potentially punishing everyone by closing the site rather than simply ignoring the fact that a community will always have users who don’t bother to reply, no matter how much effort you put in to helping them.

And so the site bounced back to life and I hope will stay that way.

😀

Thanks again Jo, I truly appreciate your reply.

Marc
