Peter,

I think it has more to do on what browser version and which plug-ins you have applied.

Tony and I have tested as many/much as we can but there is no easy way we can test all combinations of OS, browsers and plug ins.

Here's the perspective from a newbie.

Personally I'd be happy to pay a tenner a year to keep a forum going that has lots of advice and tips for owners.

I'm not so sure about restricting large sections for members only though as I think this deters new members.
I find it off putting visiting a forum and not seeing chunks of it. I'd also be wary of paying to support a forum when I was unsure of its contents.

Here's a quick example:
RAOC (Renault Alpine Owners Club) have a forum that anyone can view, except for a members only section (club offers/trips, and things people don't want public). They also restrict posting in the classifieds section to paid up members, non-members can view it though. Allowing non members to view classifieds helps members sell things, cars especially.
Club Alpine Renault has a forum that only members can view/join .... I've never seen the forum and don't know/care if it's worth the subscription fee.
I joined RAOC several years ago after buying a car off the forum, getting advice/parts from them and wanting to support to club Wink

Anyway, wheres the donate button?

I have removed your unrelated link as it is suspect, either its a joke that some of us have missed or you are spamming.  You'll have the benefit of the doubt as its your first post, however if there is more suspected spam from your account then your profile will be blocked.

A lot of websites also have member only / restricted areas - on which lots of people post email addresses, mobile phone numbers and other personal info.  Makes it quick and easy to harvest.

Hi I am v v new to the LBF and unsure of how it actually 'ticks' on a month to month basis?
I am a regular 'poster' on the mx3-uk forum and they have a 'donator' system which seems to work fine
around the general premise that if you post on a regular basis, it seems only good manners to 'donate' at an equal rate?
be it via email or paypal etc. Nearing the renewal date of the domain, the admin post a new topic informing members
of the state of play as regards the 'fullness of the pot' it goes without saying it doesnt take long for the pot to be
overflowing in readiness for the forthcoming year! Donators also get a 'green star' added to their profile, emblazened with the word 'Donator'
which can be displayed with a certain amount of warm fuzzyness?  Cheesy
just a thought? kev b.

Quote from: MattNoVAT link=topic=1989.msg12300#msg12300
Here is what we discussed/agreed:

Subscription will be 10 a year, this equates to 0.83 a month. Or $1.35 USD /  AUD $1.29   / 1.02 Euro (Rates as at today 21/12/2012)

Subscription will not start until July 2013.  This is because we want to avoid extra expense during Christmas/New year period and it gives us 6 months to prepare.  You are not obliged to pay the subscription if you do not want to, its freedom of choice.

There will be a "Free to Collector" section that is available to all subscribed/unsubscribed forum users if there are Beta parts that are being given away.  Adverts for any items being "sold" will be removed by the Admins if posted in the "Free to Collector".

Hi Matt

July is here and I am not aware of the donate button issue being resolved. Any chance of an update on what you are planning and if I can help.
