IF YOU HIDE ADS, WE CAN'T PAY THE BILLS

I hate ads, we all do. Consider...

A) Occasionally turning off your ad blocker if your using one and visiting an advertiser, or

Maybe setting up a small RECURRING donation through PayPal using the DONATE button. Heck, FIVE or TEN bucks a month would be a GREAT help.

THANKS!

I have my ad blocked turned off for this page. I try to remember to click on an ad or two while i'm browsing also. I figure "every little bit helps"....

Fix the Search functions and Find Recent Posts for individuals. Then I'll consider it. All three have been broken for years! And have been reported multiple times.

Ditto what Q said. I'm pretty sure people won't donate until search function among other things are fixed. I myself click on the ads every time I come here, but not sure if everyone knows to do that.

WPB, we have mentioned repeatedly that there are others willing to take over this site if you don't want to take care of things here anymore. PLEASE take some time to fix things as they should be or PLEASE allow someone else to.

I do not understand how this "AD" thing works to "pay the bills". I am only an occasional visitor and I very rarely post on this forum.

I remember seeing something several months ago about how ads help support this forum site. So, I turned off my Adblock Plus for this site. If you are depending on me to actually CLICK on an ad you will never earn a single penny from me.

I HATE these ads and the space they take up on my screen. I have to pay my ISP to download that stuff to my PC. I will NEVER (knowingly) click on an ad link! If you want to make this site a subscription-based site, I may subscribe. But, I will NEVER click on an ad link!

That's my opinion on this topic!

That would require relinquishing the database archive, which was started by Willard Miller back in 1995, and has all the posts since then. We're not prepared to do that.

Eventually we'll get the forum upgraded. The biggest sticking point has been "Classic View", which no one wanted to give up.

WPB, while I understand that you don't want to relinquish the database archive, what I don't understand is why you are stalling on upgrading the badly needed upgrades.

What is this place if we can't use the search function and even get into the archives that you are referring to?

With all due respect, I was merely suggesting that someone else that cares about this forum could take over to relieve you of the burden of it. There are still plenty of people here daily, 267 guests right now as I type this, and plenty of members who come here daily, like me.

THANKS! Classic view HAS, in the past, been somewhat of a deal breaker.

I want everyone to know if you've never hosted a site or taken care of one it takes more work than you think to keep it running properly.

I've hosted and ran several different sites over the years and they can be a joy and a pain. For years I could keep them running by spending around a few bucks. Add my time and it could be expensive. I handed some of them off because I either didn't have the time or they became costly to maintain and keep running. Some I let die because the people on the list became toxic.

This site has gone through it's ups and downs. I just ignore the ads but every once in a while I click on one.

Just my two cents
