And with growth comes the requirement of needing better technology to handle that "workload" (server, bandwidth, etc). So who is suppose to pay for that? It should be a no-brainer that those who are taking advantage of the service should. And not just a minority, or those willing go fork over a donation.
Do I personally like ads? No. But it's not that big of a deal to me. Besides - you've been more then democratic by giving me the option of turning them off by paying a yearly subscription fee of $30. An option I have chosen to do. And it's an option I took not just because I don't want to see the ads, but because I am more then happy to do my part in helping to keep costs down, and keep this site up and running.
$30 a year? For me, that's pocket change for what I am getting in return from this forum, and I'm more then glad to pay it.
Thanks again to the administrators and moderators for all you do.
On a different note..... I noticed that an earlier poster stated that ORG members can post on the Sundeck. That's not true is it? Was that changed?
I agree 100%! I have not been here long but I too am super grateful for what Boss and GUK have done with this website. And yes, obviously, the people who should pay are the people who visit the site, NOT a small minority. And I'm the same, I actually prefer to see ads and don't mind, but I feel it's only right to subscribe. Maybe not everyone feels that way, but I do. It is just what is right, to help support this community.
And I don't think Org members can post in the Sun Deck, but maybe Boss-Hog can answer that better!
