by using MSN chats, IRC and Teamspeak
just getting a bunch of users together asking them about things like donating towards running things.

Almost every time we have, we was asked "what do we get in return"
people who donate want to have a say on who can stay and go
We have felt it wouldn't be fair, lets say you (Angelfromabove) don't donate
this wouldn't give you as much rights as the ones that do
in our eyes this is wrong, everyone should have the same rights.
donate should be donate, but people don't always think like that.

We had exactly the same issue with Game servers
when we asked if people would help out by paying 50p/1 a month
People then started, "well yes, if we are guaranteed a space in the server"
reserving slots is the best way to kill a server off, so again, we never took that road, plus back then most game servers couldn't have reserved slots (that's changed a lot over the last 3 years)

Even now, we get a lot of users who cant afford the 35 every three months for a LAN

Maybe its getting to that time of year to ask again and see if people will donate

People forget that Linda (Mrs Rasher) and myself pay for most of the online things out of our own pocket
Hmm yeah i can kind of see where your coming from here but if you ask for dontion towards keeping it running thats a different thing to charging a set amout like a monthly fee.

By asking for donations your asking people nicely who spend a lot of time here to maybe contribute towards the upkeep of the site and such. By asking for a set monthly fee that implies more that you almost own a bit of that site? Oh god im crap with words...

Isnt it worth giving it a go though? Maybe if pople were aware of exactly how much it costs for you and your wife (i assume? lol) to run this it may make them feel a little more inclined to contribute, were not talking massive amounts of money but if each member were to contribute...i dunno 5 quid? Thats a lot of money in the end and a completely reasonable ask i believe.

Im sorry if that doesnt make sense i know exactly what i mean but i have difficults in trying to explain.

Re: Someone's nicked the forums!

Thing is GO has been around a very long time and Rasher has tried pretty much everything and knows if it will work or not.

Re: Someone's nicked the forums!

Scroll down yea no worrys but my issue is new users are gonna come along and see a advert taking up most of the page and think Meh these guys are just after money rather than providing good lans and a good website, and I can kind of agree there as it does take up half the page, dont think even toms hardware sorry adverts do that, the ad needs to better integrate into the site, have content around it to work, Rasher is working on it so this issue will soon be void.
My only concern is the fact it went live like this, it looks very unprofessional imo and gives the wrong image off for GO.

Exactly the same as it was before now.

The advert has been made the same height as what the User Pictures were. No more worries!
