    Jack and Lisa,

    Well where does one start, like Ron I don't visit the site as much as I used to but through the site I have made friends in many places and keep in touch with them all on a regular basis, thank-you for that.

    What a shame the site will not have you two at the helm always there to help out and to give information, thank-you for all your good work you will both be missed greatly.

    My love to you and all members, will keep watching.

    P.S. I do hope that it will continue, keep fingers and toes crossed <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Me Again,

    Thanks to Jacky I have come back to the site she e-mailed me today, I have not been on the site for some time but will now keep regular watch.

    Like Nancy said it is like putting on a pair of comfy slippers, you get to know people over the years, even though we have not met we all form a bond, a friendship which lasts through this wonderful site.

    After reading all your posts there are mixed thoughts, but whatever happens I do hope that we all can still have a site which will benefit all! I would pay a fee gladly <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    My thanks to Marg and Jacky for introducing me to this site and without them I would not have known many of you that contribute to solidperfume.com.

    Will keep watching.

    Elly x <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Hello Elly and all,

    At the moment we are all clutching at straws. We are a small group here in the U.K. although I would imagine there are other collectors from the U.K. who are members but never post.

    Either way, we are hoping this does not come to an end! It would be really strange not having a home base to return to.

    Look forward to hearing from Jack & Lisa how things are progressing and what is in store!

    xx

    We just have to answer Sandra. We miss her terribly. And we mean keeping in touch mainly through this site. If the site goes we are going to lose a lot of great friends just from attrition.

    It's not fair and there is a way to stay together. Wish we knew it. Sandra we have loved you since the first few words on the telephone. Sparks flew and it was great. No matter what we will keep in touch and see a Thanksgiving together in the future with you.

    Truly Estee Lauder can kind of bite us but we want our buddies and contacts.

    We love ya'll

    Michele is right – it is hard to get posts when so many of us do not collect in volume anymore……but how could we? Are we all millionaires? EL seems to think so! With prices rising and quality falling (less crystals etc)…… and there are some other things in life too for us to spend our precious $ on (though most of us probably can't remember what those things are now “our” site might disappear!).

    Brigitte, your English is excellent. I only wish my French were as good!! Still….. Je suis etudiant! ….and I haven't visited France to use it yet!!

    I am concerned that so many of us would like to keep in touch if the site ends….. can we come up with an efficient way for us to give our details to each other for this purpose? I am sure there are many who communicate only on the boards but not via e-mail and would not like to loose contact….. any ideas? But maybe I speak too soon….. we live in hope that our Headquarters for communication will remain.

    A note that if membership is to increase then we would need a domain name associated with our passion…. one that doesn't set off ELs lawyers like the old one did!!

    Lisa, Jack have you considered sending an e-mail newsletter to all members to provide an update on the current situation and draw the extra 675 people back???

    Best wishes to all. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    I have never posted here before – even though I have been a member of the site for a few years. I am a person of few words and didn't feel I had anything to contribute as I am a novice collector of solid perfumes and compacts. However, I am so sad that this site may close down as I have loved reading the posts and have learned a lot from the site.

    I too would be willing to pay a fee to keep it going as this is one of the few connections I have with the solid perfume world.

    Please find a way to keep the site (or one by another name) going.

    <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ /> Oh, sniff, how sweet, I knew we were good friends, but didn't know you quite felt so deeply Don & Margaret – and I have to say, RIGHT BACK AT YA ! You have also made me smile from Day 1 too. OK, and laugh my head off and giggle lots <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> You two are definitely the genuine deal. No B/S there ! ('Scuse the French)

    It's certainly an honour to be invited to your table for Thanksgiving, and I know we will be thanking this site and good friends.

    You have been good enough to keep in touch, and I appreciate it, but it's just not the same without this site, is it?

    Take care and stick around. Please add to the story – it needs an installment from you two. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

    Hi – we all started this way, and felt the same. My first post was hesitantly made too. Now look – Can't shut me up. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Seriously, you are welcomed with open arms. Whatever experiences you have with solids – your highs and lows should be shared here. You will see that people will relate to you and your words, so don't ever think you have not much to contribute. Even if you agree with a post, just say so ! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    PS. disagreeing with some people is not recommended . . . joking ! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
    Say what you like !

    How profoundly true for all of us. Thank you, kferrzz, for reminding us of yet another reason to keep the site up and running.

    And thanks for your post. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> Don't worry about writing long posts…most members only read one sentence then skip to the next post. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> Seriously, one heartfelt sentence or one thought is worth a million words.
