Default DONATE

HI guys the costs of running a vbulletin board are very expensive i know this from personell experiance although the board i once owned was not a bulletin board i enquired at the time about costs of a bulletin board --any board has host costs they usually have also expensive addon costs and vbulletin licence costs these costs are usually funded by one or a few people and can be astronomical believe me ive experienced it.
On top of this usually and again i know this from personell experience mods admin spend at least 12 hours a day each checking posts -sourcing files -building boards-and genrally looking after things.
Now over the many years ive been involved in this great hobby ive seen many forums go because of lack of funding some very good forums have disappeared just because members wont or cannot help.
I am promoting that all members donate a little if they can to help keep this forum alive and help the guys who run it pay the annual costs WE ALL TAKE INFORMATION -FILES-ETC from forums and we tend to forget the guys who have built the boards and put the info there in the first place so this is my plea --CONTACT Magnus and DONATE

we all realise by my last post the costs of running a forum and some costs have to paid for by revenue gained from pop ups and ads now on another post i saw one member asking about pop ups its simple if the forum had enough revenue it would not have pop ups or ads so simply DONATE -I DONT THINK MANY REALISE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS in the many years ive been involved in this hobby since 1990 ive seen lots of forums close i truly believe this a good forum hence i take files i need but i give back by donating --thats the thing to give back -some may give back by uploading files thats great some help others again thats great but some do nothing and take- i make this plea please just think for a while has the forum helped me il bet it has if it has put your hand in your pocket and donate --these guys spend many hours a day trying to get you the files for your boxes so your firmware is up to date so help them because helping them in the long run is helping you DONATE MY FRIENDS

this is how the costs work out guys and im not quoting from prices online its just rough prices as i know what my host charges etc
vbulletin costs roughly between £250-£350 gbp
hosting costs roughly 3 years £120 gbp
dedicated ip roughly 3 years £120 gbp
dedicated server 1 year £2.000 GBP
site name (estimate) 1 year £30gbp
privacy 1 year £30
FORUM ADDONS (shout etc) £100
now for one moment please dont think these are the prices that WOS pay it could be a lot more ive given figures for a small forum not a huge forum like this so maybe hopefully some members will realise that SOMEBODY IS PAYING THESE FEES FROM THERE OWN POCKET FOR A SITE FOR YOU TO ENJOY
this is not to mention the ADMIN MODS I SEE HERE every single time i visit giving at least twelve hours each to find you the latest SW/FW for your boxes so please think for a moment THAT SOMEONE IS PAYING THE ABOVE FEES AND PROBABLY A LOT MORE AS I SAID out of there own pocket so please DONATE
