3) Monthly fee for running your own forum. (With this fee, you would be entitled to do whatever you wanted to do in your forum, because it would be well and truly yours.

Hi, Everyone.

I did a little digging on the board software, and it turns out I can assign users special "ranks". Therefore, anyone who makes a donation now gets the designation "Contributor" over his/her avatar. :)

If you contributed, but don't see "Contributor" over your avatar, please let me know and I'll fix it for you. :)

I want to find a way to keep this site open indefinitely. Unfortunately, to do that costs money (hosting fees + domain registration fees, primarily). Accordingly, I am considering ways to bring in some revenue. Here are the options I am considering so far:

1) $10/year access to the Insult and/or Sex forums.
2) $5/year access to the site as a whole.
3) Monthly fee for running your own forum. (With this fee, you would be entitled to do whatever you wanted to do in your forum, because it would be well and truly yours.

What do you think of those options? If you have another idea, please feel free to add it to the thread.

I could make a real nasty post out of this but I won't , people are not stupid.

but forum closures are especially when they were included as part of a package and funds were collected.

Yeah, that's a good point. As unpleasant as the insult forum was to read, it was a very popular feature. I'd like to see it return.

If you contributed solely for the sake of the insult forum, please PM me and I will send you your $10 back through the e-mail address registered with the board (or whichever e-mail address you have registered with PayPal).

2bits: I have issued you a refund, since you are the one who brought the issue up.

The Insult forum will not be coming back.

To bad about the insult forum it was a good draw for 24.

You made the comment about the funds, and I thought that was a fair point, so I gave you a refund. Where's the problem? :dontknow:

If your only point was to try and pressure me to re-open the Insult forum, then sorry, it ain't gonna happen. Like with any other forum, if we lose people, we lose people. I would hope that people were here for more than just slinging feces at each other, but hey, that's just me.

BY the way,I didn't ask for a refund, nor was it proper of you to post it here either.

Donations amounts are what Brian? are they private info? ban yourself dude.
