Pay your 20 bucks, I'm sure it will get a lot better right away.

Lewster I happen to agree with you , you have been a much needed help to me for quite a while. As far as the guy from Silver Trailer supply parts is concerned, as long as keeps adding his advertising in the middle of these posts , I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING HIM AND HIS BUSINESS! Pissing people off is a great way to lose business, and support from the very community that feeds you. Poor business is poor business, ranked right below the politicians that call me all hours of the night. .( rant over)

I think we better give up hoping the adds will go away. Lets talk about how we can get rid of them, like installing adblocker+ .

Good chance I've paid my $20 more times than you have.
The point is, if you have a poor signal, this site is almost impossible to load for all the ads that have to load before the content. And are several other sites worse than this one for loading.

My point is: that was supposed to be humorous.

I am going to dispute that statement just a little, sorry Lewster. Generally we see things very eye to eye.

The posts you make are worth far more than $20 to the people who read this forum. But your posts do not keep the lights on. Your posts do, deeply benefit those reading this forum, but not the person who owns it and tries hard to keep improving it. For that a $20 contribution does.
I would also look at the other side of that coins and suggest that the 4000+ posts you have made here, have far exceeded the $20 contribution in work that has come your way.

Yes, it auto-renews if you pay another 20 bucks. I get a message in September which gives me a few days to renew. If I haven't looked at the Forum for several days (no wifi, no cell reception, no anything, too busy, can cause that) I am no longer a supporting member. The extra photos and PM's stored can't be accessed, though they come back when I fork over the money.

So when I don't get the message in time, I think, "do I really need all those extras which aren't all that much?" Now I think getting rid of the ads are another reason to renew, but if I don't, the ads might chase me away.

I think anyone with more than 9,000 posts should get supporting member for free, or, better yet, be sent $20 by the Forum.

So far as Lew goes, I have to agree with him. His informative posts are the kind of thing that makes the Forum work and that attracts and keeps people here. That in turn means more supporting members. I'm sure he's made more than $20 (some of it from me), but contributions aren't only in dollars, and more members means more clicks and that keeps the lights on. Sorry Frank, but glad to see your posts. It has been a while.

Perhaps some of you have mid-interpreted my post. It was meant to show members that there is value on the Forum well worth the supporting member fee.

And while I have indeed benefitted by some members throwing business my way, I ever self-promote my services and never solicit business either. That is NOT the reason I am here.

Ya true, but on the other hand its members like him that draw the ad clickers to this forum.

Gene

Before we do that I think we need to establish a committee to evaluate the worthiness of the 9.000 posts. They might decide you should pay more than $20. I'm pretty sure they would come to that conclusion about my posts as a whole.

I thought my suggestion here a while ago might FLY, but there was no support for it. The organization is to big to worry about us little guys!

Conversely, I think that those of us who have posted a lot, if anyone, recognize the value the Forum provides and more likely to pony up.

I confess I forget from time to time, but my intentions are to remain a cash supporter too.
