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

Where would we stand if, with agreement of forum members of course, spending some on, say, forum t-shirts or badges for forum members to buy, with any profits going to a chosen charity? This would hopefully publicise the forum as well and gain us some new members.

Did we get anywhere with the t-shirt idea? I seem to remember it being discussed.


I prefer this idea, if i donated & then my money was given away to something else it'd leave me unwilling to donate again.
using the spare to fund stuff for the selling of is a much better idea to me. maybe we should have a regular annual meet somewhere such as ploppy's rally this year - excess funds could purchase beer, so the members who make the most of the forum get the rewards.

I know its a lot bigger forum but the 14club im on does an annual rally & the profits from club donations pays for the campsite & band etc.

The Hooli, for the most impressive mechanical failure :D :D

I think the T shirts idea is a good one. Some little stickers etc would be good too (is Isle of Wight graphics still here?). You know those tax disc sized badges the original forum had? They'd be good too, though those could be printed at home. Talking of which, perhaps we should think about a proper colour scheme for all of this? :D

The 'Gusset Award for Literature' would be awarded for simply knowing the difference between Their, There and They're !

You could send a donation to me, I'd then put the funds in the account and email the forum paypal email address a record of your contribution so that triumph5ta can see what's coming in.

The fund stands at £266.81 at the moment as we have not had to use any of it yet, we are still running on the original set up costs.
Being able to call on my son for help and advice has kept the costs down.
At some point we will have to decide how much we want to keep in hand for keeping the forum running, then we will have to either temporarilly remove the donate button or sound out the forum members for their views on possibly donating any surplus to a biking related charity.


Hello Dam

Tried sending you a PM and it does not know you. Can you let me have the address to send the donation to.

If you click on DAM's name in one of his posts you'll be taken to his profile page and be given the option of PM'ing or emailing him.
It definitely works. You are doing something wrong !
