Not sure what happened to the Paypal donate link that was up a while ago or if enough people even donated. I know I didn't-I intended to, but then the link was gone, etc. So, once again I would like to suggest that we offer a paid membership plan say for $25 a year and that $25 a year would get you certain features? membership would not be a requirement to post, you could still post and read for free, but, if you were a paid member you could get certain benefits-like perhaps being able to see thumbnails or sigs or AVs and other things like that. I know another huge vbulletin message board (Sybermoms), that operates just like that and it works for them. Just a suggestion since it is obvious that this board cost a lot of money to run and having money to come in would be a great thing! If even part of the board signed up for membership, we could have a nice tidy sum to use for the upkeep and upgrade of tPF.
