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 :?

Instead of making it bigger you can now subscribe to the forum and depending on how much you pay depends on how long I leave you alone for :lol:

Once the subscription runs out then you should get some sort of reminder to subscribe again should you wish to

Everyone who has donated within the last year has automatically been given 12 months subscription

It was something that @Joeman mentioned a while ago about having it for a set time limit (which I can't find the post now) ps Joeman your time is up.....hit that subscribe button :lol:

I don't suppose you have an idea how much the active members would need to contribute each to keep this place ticking over do you?

Well "active" members is subjective as people come then go then come back! some people visit daily some weekly some monthly so its hard to put a figure on active members

It costs around £550 a year to keep the place up and running and we have had 101 registered members and 352 guests in the last 24 hours
