Phorum Phunding !

No, not "Greenbat you useless bastard" comments. Instead, any helpful suggestions, bugs, ideas etc. I have very little (i.e, none) experience with forum running, so help is very much appreciated

I'm happy to subscribe, although it I feel it should remain voluntary.

I did suggest a Paypal 'Donate' icon somewhere on the front page.

I think we could probably come up with a special "I helped save the Classic Bike Forum" Icon for anyone who donates.

I did have a thought.
This site will cost so much per week. Why not allow people to pay for a week, then at the top have a little banner saying "This week supplied by..."?

Not every week mate....people will get pissed off with it, also I agree it shouldn't be compulsory cos some people are skint othere are skint but will pay something due to pride!!

Make it a volentary contribution and sort some stickers out or give them a title such as .......special member...full member or forum helper.....Or even better nothing at all except for the satisfaction of knowing your keeping this forum alive...I could see about a batch of stickers.....actually if you say YES then I will sort us out some stickers...Forum name and a design

I try to avoid PayPal but give me an address to send a contribution to and I'll happily send a cheque to keep this forum on the road
