    It would all depend on what your financial situation is and how much the advertising dollars would help. If you need to do it in order to keep the board running then I would. I would try to keep it tasteful. I am unfortunatly using dial up access so I am hoping it is not going to be a graphics heavy ad that will slow down the board alot.

    You'll find that a lot of people are only gonna donate their opinion. You ought to have a pop- up buy-out.:)

    no, i'm guessing that it'd be a small box or banner ad. i'd tell them that it would have to be under a certain filesize for us to run it. i'd also make them host it so it wouldn't eat up our bandwidth.

    any money would help to keep us running, but we're not in such dire straits that i feel the need to sell ads all over the place.

    this board is solely funded by every one of us. if every member just gave 25 cents a month, we'd be fine. i understand that not everyone can help out, but i do think that everyone who doesn't contribute should at least thank those who do.

    sounds fine to me, especially being panthers related.

    I like the idea of donations removing popups. Don't pay and get pop ups

    Larry, why didn't you post this in Rant and Rave also? Or did I just miss it?

    I voted yes, but only on the condition of no pop-ups.

    I was wondering the same thing Silver.

    I say do whatever you need to do to keep TBR alive and whatever works for YOU. It would be nice if everyone could donate just a little so this wouldn't be an issue though.
