I was just wondering how you guys fund this thing, that's all. Do you have a donations link or something? If not, I think we should start one.

hmmm...

Yes, donations help keep the board going as well as revenue from the clickable adds to the right. (Be sure and click one a day.)

But right now I can't seem to find the paypal link for making donations. It should be on the main page of the forums.

It gets its money I think mostly from donnations and from the google ads. So be sure to click on at least one or two a day to help out with costs.

There isn't a donations link? If not, I think we should implement one to help out with the costs. I'm sure everybody wouldn't mind a little contribution.

I removed the link because of some recent problems with PayPal's security. Also, because the advertising is getting close to the point where it will sustain basic support, so the donation link isn't needed. The basic idea I've been helping Simon with, is to get the community to a critical mass where logical and supportive advertising (from companies with products and services that make sense to our members, and who use non-intrusive advertising) are able to support the site and perhaps fund growth. We're not there yet, but getting close.

That's good. I am just trying to help out, that's all. If you guys are short on cash, give me a holler and I'll see what I can do for you.

You know not many people would ask to donate like that-it's really refreshing. In fact, it has inspired me to want to help too.

So here what we do, put a few dollars or a check (just leave the payable to line blank-I'll take care of it until I get this sorted out) and mail it to Sargon, P.O. Box 5551212, NY, NY 12345.

I'll compile it all and make sure it gets to the ATS Staff.

Yeah, I know, here comes the 500 point ATS fine.

Great post. I did not connect in my head with clicking the ads to support the site.
I will do that daily.

Maybe a reminder posted at the top of some pages like the recent post link would help direct folks to those links so we don't lose the site or see the owners/moderators absorbing any cost.

We were actually contacted by Google for asking users to support our site and visiting an advertiser's link every now and again. So basically, we no longer ask users to do so...

For you guys to take the link away, that blows my mind. You two get mad respect. It would be so easy to keep the link up, and take the money. Not just kissing ass, serious.

I think that ATS should sell products in the ATS store like,
T-shirts, hats, coffee mug, drinking glasses etc..

I'd be interested in buying something like that.
