Congratulations to 3 Wrangler Forum Members! $25 TGIFridays Gift Card

By time stamp, the first 3 people who noted "WranglerForum.com" as their referral during their registration process are awarded a $25 gift card to TGIFridays.
This was an non-promoted giveaway in order to only reward those who were truly interested in using our site (rather than just grabbing a $25 gift card ).

Those registered names on our site are:
Hawgwild1
MaggiesHeart
JDages

Your gift cards will be mailed to you on Monday, Jan 3rd.

Currently, MaggiesHeart leads in points awarded in the contest for the $100 JC Whitney Gift Certificate that ends this month.

For the other members on this forum we are extending the offer of an additional $5 ($10 total) added to your account if you register by 1/31/11.
Please contact us here or on our site for the additional monies. You also still have a full month to Register Here and try to win the JC Whitney Certificate.

Happy New Year All!

Note: We are not competitors to Vendors. Vendors are welcome to open an account and list products. However, vendors are not eligible for contests.

I just went and looked, I see NOTHING in any of the dozen or so categories that I checked out and I really do NOT feel comfortable giving my phone number out on a registration form to some outfit that I've never heard of before.

In a nutshell, what's your privacy policy and when do you anticipate "going live" ?

Hi Kate,

I understand your concerns, which is why the advertisements are taking place. We intend to have people hear about us.

Not much in any category because - and we haven't hidden the fact - we are a new site and are focused on people with an interest in Jeeps. It survives or fails on it's own merits. Also know, that unlike similar sites, we aren't feeding in listings from other sources to populate the site. As a side note, stay away from Penny Auctions. They are notorious for this and for being manipulated by the webmaster.

Our listings will come from REAL people. We are intent on it.

Our Privacy Policy can be found at the Privacy Policy link, located on the footer (bottom) of the landing page. (I've also linked it above).

Your phone number is kept confidential [REDACTED BY OP - See post #5] As stated upon registration, we verify phone numbers within 48 hours. This has worked out well so far and people we've talked to, when making our phone verification, are pleased that all members are verified in this manner.

As for going "Live". Officially, I took it out of beta 2 days ago. There was months of work put into it and getting the bugs out.

I hope that answers your concerns. There are also a number of other areas you can look, if you have other questions, that may help. You'll find a FAQ and HELP link on the site, as well.

You are also more than welcome to call me at 610-340-4502. Before 5 pm EST.

Hey Matt,

It was really nice talking to you on the phone!
Thank you for answering all of my questions and addressing my concerns.

I'm looking forward to seeing your site take off and wish you all the best in this venture. It could be the next hot ticket!

I just had a great conversation on the phone with Kate and she brought up a valid concern about providing phone numbers to those who transactions are made with.

She is right. Bad idea, considering there are people in this world who would make life miserable for others. Not being a woman, I think like a guy and there is legitimate concern about the phone # issue.

New policy.

Phone numbers will not be provided to other members, even if a transaction has taken place between them.

It will still be required during registration, but won't be made public between members.

Thanks for your input. We are always looking to improve!

It was great speaking with you Kate and welcome to Bid4Jeeps.
