I have given what is, IMO, a small amount each year for awhile now, but I would 100% support a paid site. I have no idea what ike's costs are, but we have dozens of ACTIVE registered users, and hundreds of occasional users. It seems to me even $15-$20 per YEAR would 1) cover the board costs (and maybe a homecoming round at Rafters!), and 2) eliminate trolls and the like - though that hasn't seemed to have been much of a problem of late.

Okay that's it for me. Getting ready to head off to Amherst for the FB game with 2 kids who are NOT sick with the flu. :roll:

Appreciate the suggestion, but for a lot of reasons we're not going to a paid service model.

Thought I would bump this thread. Board updates reminded me it's time to send some coin to Mike for the great resource.

Thanks, Bubba. That reminds me- if anyone is up for reading a little bit about where this site currently lives in the physical world, this came out last summer:

Parts of the site's functionality took a hit last night / early this morning. Board was down.

We appear to be back up and running now. Thanks, as always, JJ, for your assistance.

Now's a good time to remind y'all that this whole site is an out-of-pocket expense for me. We're free of ads and don't use paid subscriptions, so the only source of income to help defray my costs is your help via donations.
