    Snorkerz

    Snorkerz, wherefore art thou Snorkerz

    Hasn't been on here since 10 December, and twitter not updated since about then. Company website not working also

    Anyone heard from him?

    Nope. Hope everything is OK.

    Best wishes if you're viewing snorkerz

      I see his domain name has expired in fact, which doesn't bode well, does it?

        Well, his company has been dissolved...

        Anyway, best wishes to him.

          I've tried to contact him via another route (we once conversed on a couple of years ago) but no response there either.
          IANAL (I am not a lawyer). Anything I say here is just an opinion, so should not be relied upon! Always check your facts with a professional who really knows their onions.

            I'm glad you ask this emwithme.

            I was away in December and wondered if there had been 'trouble' of some sort. Snorkerz was having issues with the management of this site over his advertising byline.

            I also notice that Mind the Gap is absent these days. I feel we are the poorer for them not being here.

              The last I heard/saw was that Snorkerz had made requested changes to his signature some time before his last post here.

              There was another matter which was dealt with privately and I believe amicably resolved, but I am not at liberty to discuss this (since I was not directly involved).

                Perhaps Snorkerz feels he has given too much to this forum (he was always so helpful), and perhaps when people 'unfairly pick holes' about his signature he has just had enough and chucked the towel in. I miss him greatly.

                    Had the opportunity to assist in a matter with him ( Visiting property, photos and a report ) due to his distance from the property. ( Dispute settled amicably ).

                    He did say last year/ or late 2012 that he would not be frequenting these pages much as his business took priority, so was no surprise not to see him on here for a while.

                    I have not contacted him, as he probably needs space to reconfigure his business / life, but we all hope that nothing too serious is happening.

                    Yes, missed by all.

                    R.a.M.

                      I believe Snorkerz is a long standing diabetic so hope that has nothing to do with it.
                      I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

                        Is it unfair to apply the same rules to all Topic Experts? As I said above, Snorkerz had already changed his signature to something acceptable some time before his last post here, but are you suggesting that his business was so heavily dependent on his activity within these forums? As RAM pointed out snorkerz did clearly state some time ago that LLZ was to take a back seat to his business interests, so I can’t see why he would have ‘thrown in the towel’ for the reasons you imply.

                        I’m actually hoping that what may be going on is snorkerz re-forming his business as suggested in that post, but it is concerning that he has been out of contact for so long now. I am not aware of any significant issues between snorkerz / LLZ admin that would have (or could have) led to the closure of his business.

                          Just to put the record straight - we are as surpised as anyone about Snorkerz' disappearance?

                          We did have some problems over his signature and also his habit of private messaging everyone with eviction problems - we had complaints about the latter.

                          However, these issues had been resolved to both our satisfactions and we had agreed to give him free advertising on landlordzone.

                          We copied in 3 prominent members into correspondence with Dave over the dispute for complete transparency - there was no coercion involved.

                          We were in the process of implementing the free ads when it all went quiet.

                          We assumed either a health problem or he has some legal issue with his business?

                          If he has left he will obviously be missed here but we understand he has left other forums as well?

                          Hope that helps.

                            I haven't implied anything about Snorkerz business'. My comment about throwing in the towel is with regard to 'LLZ Forum'.

                            My own hunch is that Snorkerz is safe and well - fingers crossed I'm correct.

                              I suspect that he had a jolly good go at opening a new business venture and that sadly it was not as profitable or successful as he hoped.
                              Buckets of respect for trying and if that is the case, then I hope he takes some time to dust himself off and carry on.

                              There is no shame in having a go and though I rarely frequent the RL section I'd "virtually" pat him on the back and say welcome home and hope to see him contribute as before.
                              Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.
