The forum is free and the admin team keep it up.

We’ve sometimes paid for somethings out of our own pocket, like recently we paid for ad removal. And the bcfcforum.co.uk domain cost is paid for by some of the admin team.

What nice people. Thank you. I didn't want to say I hadn't seen any adverts, in case it opened a can of worms.

It all depends whether you are using ad blocker. If not, the adverts show.

One of the admin paid for ad removal and it lasted for quite a while until we allowed guests to view, as we were requested. Then the ads were back virtually overnight because you pay for no adverts based on a certain number of 'views'. A lot of the 'guests' are just 'tracking bots' if I've got the terminology correct. This made it too expensive for us to keep the forum ad free.

We could remove the facility for guest stars to view the forum, but some people don't want us to do that.

But as Steve says, one of the admin team paid out of his own pocket for us to have the forum domain name.

One of the Admin team is top drawer and very modest. I thank him / her.

Would the Admin ever consider a 'Crowd Funding' like for this forum.

Other forums have tried this.

As long as one believes in the status-quo,of the Aminstration 'Crowd-Funding' can contribute ~ perhaps not zillions, but a regular annual respite for our benefactors.

I will mention it to the admin team, but one of the things we want to do is provide a service for fans without them having to pay for it. **thumbup

I, personally, find some of the adverts offensive and the only way to get rid of them is pay for an ad free forum, but that would be expensive.

Whilst crowd funding is an excellent idea, I don't feel it's something we, as an admin team, could request, but it may be that it is something our membership wants to both remove adverts and keep the forum URL.

OK :angel:

Can I do a Poll ?

On the Forum's first page?

We shouldn't be beholden to a single/group putting their own dosh into this Forum surviving.

Let everyone contribute ~ why not? :angel:

We can set Agendas....details n the Poll.
We can set Security for current and future Mods.


As I suggested earlier like, it's about taking the burden off individuals, spreading the cost through a "Go-Fund-Me".................. BUT NOT allowing funders to influence nor interfere with our culture.
Our Forum Rules REMAIN

No other Agenda. I'm just trying to HELP to our funder/funders.

:kiss:

Can I do a POLL ? Because I know you Mods cannot do this...I'm not a Mod...nor EVER want to be...it would come better from me or someone like Lowdieman, if such came about

:rolleyes:
