Can forum members contribute? A donation to help support the site and perhaps help pay for some improvements?

Other forums I belong to welcome donations, and I certainly feel that this is a quality forum full of great information and great folks. I've learned a great deal, and would not mind supporting it monetarily.

I'm not so much a fan of the forums that require "memberships," but I understand that this site doesn't exist for free.

That's why there are advertisers? As the forum grows with the FZ, more businesses will be pumping in cash.
Of what improvements do you speak?

FYI, I would personally kick in a few bucks just because

I'm also willing to "just cause" (which is why i brought it up), but I remember someone needing the ability to have more than just 50 private messages, and I wouldn't mind having more smilies/emoticon thingies to choose from.

Great Thread!

I was surprised to see no ability to "Upgrade" your membership; I believe this typically serves as a donation to help the site and usually comes with a few perks like a larger PM inbox.

I also wouldn't mind paying to get rid of the ads... not the ones for forum sponsors, but right now, as I type this, I'm staring at a Motorcycle Superstore ad that I would rather not see.

I never see the ads that you are speaking of, curious why you see them and I don't. Still would not mind kicking in a few bucks considering how helpful this forum has been to me.

As far as smilies go, there are lots and lots of them....just click on "more"at the bottom of the smiley window.

Are there ads? I have adblockplus installed and I can disable it for this site if it helps with revenue.

:very_drunk: found the smilies :eek:ccasion14:

99% of the time that I'm on this site, I'm on my Nexus tablet... which doesn't have any adblock software on the browser.... so I get to stare at ads... like the one trying to get me to join the Sprint Framily Plan... in Spanish no less... :dontknow:

Does the site get money for allowing and placing the ads, or do you have to click on it for them to get $$

Just curious.

If you are logged in, there "shouldn't" be any ads. I've forgotten to login before and there are some interesting ones ; p
