I could get rid of it then close the forum? :?

I need to earn some money to keep the place open and I looked at all possibilities and that is probably the least intrusive

The £550 yearly cost is killing me at the min

Yeah it did but it never showed on mobile phones and when most users are on a mobile these days it was wasted advertising

I don't want to make it all in your face to be honest! and if people decide to donate it is much appreciated.

We did really well out of bikesure before but it all depends on people using them for insurance!

The number for bike sure that we have on here is a dedicated number that automatically come up as the forum being the referrer and applies any discount where available! I just hope they turn out to be competitive for people :?
