Hi, All.

While I'm eternally grateful for all donations received, they're seeming to be too few and far between and with increasing costs of hosting, etc, the forum is starting to become a bit of a drain on my personal bank account.

With that in mind, I'm going to have to consider either implementing ads in the site, requiring a fee from sponsors (although I'd like to avoid that, it's been one of our main USPs since we began) or maybe showing some kind of funded/not funded bar/indicator.

What do we think? I can start looking into advertising networks such as Ad Sense, from Google, I used to use them many years ago.

I'm more a fan of ads, than sponsors, as it may lead to people taming their views to suit the suppliers.

I'm not opposed to ads as long as they're not too intrusive.
