Support the Operation

This forum costs us a considerable amount of money.

I am faced with various options:
1. Cover all the expenses on my own.
2. Receive contributions from forum members.
3. Place Google Ads on the site to generate ad revenue.
4. Charge for forum membership.
5. Shut down the forum.

I'd rather not do option 1, 4, or 5.

I'd appreciate it if you all would contribute to the costs of keeping it running, ad free.

You can contribute any amount via this page:

Or I can place Google Ads throughout the forum, in hopes of generating revenue through those ads. If I don't start receiving a sufficient amount of contributions soon, and on a regular basis (to cover the associated server/hosting/domain costs to keep the forum running) I'll take that as a sign that I need to start putting Google Ads on the site... or figure something else out.

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who contributed to support the forum in 2010... it covered those expenses for the 2nd half of 2010.

For now, I've decided (as you've probably seen) to try out advertisements as another method of supporting the site... If users can tolerate the ads, and if the ads do their job, it will probably turn out to be a good option (and won't cost you anything - though you can still contribute via the link at the bottom).
