It seems that the members are not in favour of helping out with the financing of this forum. That's very disappointing.

There is a hard core of us, less than 20, who regularly contribut to forum conversations, and I have to think that they enjoy the discussions, whether or not they agree with each other.

If we want the forum to continue, we should all be willing to contribute, not just a small few.

Thank you very much Vanuatu.

 If you message Northman, he'll give you the details. He's been holding up the forum, financially, for quite some time, on his own.

I'd suggest whatever small amount you can spare. I'm currently sending an amount every quarter.

Again, thank you.

To those members who contributed financially to the running of the forum, thank you very much. You know who you are.Clap

Due to your donations, the forum is financially solvent for the next 12months.

Now, if we could all mark our calendars to remind us to do the same again early in 2018, northman won't get any more ulcers. Tongue

Hello all

A little extra info...

We pay our fees on a yearly basis 
Last month I cut off a few extra domain names we had and a server. Then I could negotiate the annual amount down to half of what we gave before (ca. 250 GBP)
- so now the total is 130 GBP or 165 USD -  yearly.

We have a little extra on the account for an upcoming fee in may for our domain name, but that is also covered as I said..
There is nothing to worry about for the next year.

Thank you for the support.

Incidentally, by calling on members to assist in the financing of this forum, does not mean that the forum is/was in financial difficulties.  IMHO, as those who enjoy the forum, I only thought it fair that we all contribute to it's financial security so that we could all go on enjoying the forum.

If I had the technical knowledge, I'd also offer to help there too, but I don't.
