Default Consider this....

I've been thinking, we have been using this forum to get great information over the years and we should give a donation for the holiday season. If everyone just gave $5 to this great website, it should keep them going for some time. Let's all consider it! What do you say?

Could you explain the subscription process please? I would like to do the same and support this great site but I am not sure how to do it. Thanks

Dont worry guys! they have whats called paid advertising, and as long as there are people on this site that support the advertisers, there is no danger of the site going anywhere anytime soon, nice idea though.

For what it's worth--and I am not saying this to make a plea for money, just for factual reference--the site is actually back in the red, and has been for the past three months. There are quite a few advertisers, which is true, but the cost is very minimal and in some cases I have a heckuva time getting people to pay. Lots of promises come from a lot of people, but I have to do a lot of harping in SOME cases (emphasis on some, many have been very helpful and I am very thankful to them).

Traffic has been steadily increasing, and still is, which is absolutely fantastic but also raises my costs. To those that have subscribed, I thank you profusely, and you will all be quite happy that you did at some point.

Aside from the subscriptions, donations are certainly appreciated but are in no way required, and I will never try to pressure *anybody* into it.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays to all.

Thumbs up Great Idea

I think this is a great idea. For all of the good this site does. Think of all the money that we spend in this hobby.
It takes 2 minutes and it is only a couple of bucks.

Just my 2 cents
