Yeah.

I'm pretty sure it has to do with contributing content to the
World Cruising and Sailing Wiki - Cruising Guides - Sailing Blogs - Boating - Marine News from CruisersWiki
(see the button up there?), especially since there's no "support us/paypal" button.

Hey, were you guys sworn to secrecy or something? Maybe like the Freemasons?

Sworn to secrecy? No. We're just very patient.

Good things come to those who wait.

Palegic and Bash,
I thought you guys are sapose to be advisors.
Advise already. Or did you not get the memo.

I don't think it has anything to do witht the number of posts.

Okay, Scott, it's an outside possibility that we were sworn to secrecy. However, that doesn't change the fact that good things come to those who wait.
