Sure banner ads are ugly, but if you were able to work some small advertisements into the design, companies pay well to advertise in popular forums. Personally I think you deserve something back for keepin this great board up. I dont think anyone would object to that! And if for some reason you didnt want to pocket the cash, you could always donate it to application signing or some cause to benefit the comunity thumbs-up.gif

think about it!

The one sponsor got sick and stopped sponsoring (IIRC).

Add banners are irritating anyway...

Ad banners may be irritating (I disagree, but not all do), but so long as there are no popups, I don't see any problem.

The Speedway Jam ad wasn't irritating was it?

I have a few parties interested in sponsoring the site...

At the end of the day, all goodies from MS aside, the site costs me money to run...

Paul, you could ask people to 'donate' to help out. Even a £1 donation would be helpful.

Well, I am launching my own Isp service soon and could do with some people to test out how quick it is. I might even look at some kind of advertising package or incentives for the forum. This site has always been a great resource for me and helped me solve bugs with the phone.

Heheh, at Loughborough they had to totally lock down the Student Halls network. Try downloading _anything_ on any speed line when you have several thousand users all at once :)

I will have a pay as you go + broadband. No contention though, which means it won't slow down at busy times.

It would be nice to have a few people try out the 0845 service before I go fully live with advertising( if I want to say it's fast, I want to make sure).

I've had a 25% increase with it so far but only tested once.

I think for providing such a valuable resource the administrators should put ads on the site.

"It's all about the benjamins"

those of us with ADSL makes F.A difference

and you plebs with 56 K well, bad luck :)
