I've see this guy's whining hit me as so much bunk and/or sour grapes oph his part. This site would not be here without Andy seeing that it is and I think it's great if he can make a buck from it...more power to him! We are not forced to contribute. We do it because we feel we get far more than our contributions amount least I do. Keep up the great work, Andy...and Moderators, too!

The person in charge of mailing the stickers is another volunteer. He uses his free time (and he has a full-time job as well) to get them out to you. If you don't get them in a reasonable time, let one of the mods know, we have had issues with the ordering and upgrading before, and yours may have gotten lost under a pile of stale electrons somewhere.

I'm lost?

Hi, what's the point? My understanding of this article was that there were "1.5 Million hits" and one miss. If this person doesn't like Andy or his forums he doesn't have to visit them much less donate.

Atta boy Andy

I've learned how to make many repairs on my Airstream. This could'nt have been done as cheaply without the advice of the many Airforumiars out there. I've even fixed items with Andy's free hints. My donation was given with a smile on my face.

I sent the guy an email. not rude at all, just saying it is a free forum, he doesn't have to use it if he doesn't want to... That I received invaluable information from it and thats why I support it... But don't understand his whining, as it doesn't say it's a non-profit.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

having been the host for a small forum for quite a few years i'll put my .02 in.

any forum takes a lot of time and effort. advertising does not pay much these days. a forum as well run as this takes more of the above plus $$$$.
i pay to host that forum i have and to keep it ad free but the usage is minimal. if you can have a site this large, busy and wonderful and you make money on it, it is well deserved! when andy r starts trading in a 34' slide-out every year for a new one, i'll reconsider donating, but i probably would anyway because i'd like a set of stickers!

p.s. i happened to start visiting another site that is also a "social knowledge" site. it is nothing like this site but i hope someday it will be!

I think the nice thing about the airforums is that Andy keeps way in the background, lets the moderators run most of the stuff, and lets us wear our fingers down to nubs posting useful and useless information.

The only big egos involved are those of the contributors.

Great job Andy!

Just to make it clear, AndyR who owns the forums is not the same Andy as Inland RV Andy. Inland Andy is a valued contributor, but a completely different person, and he does not own any interest in the forums. He's just another one of the great members who makes this community so incredibly useful.

Sometimes there's a little confusion about that
