    hmm.... atm we have a good deal on a server its around about £150 per month... which atm Waddy (Site owner) is currently paying outta his own pocket.. and making no profit from

    This is a touchy subject at this point in time... I'm not actually allowed to say much more then that at the moment because its related to another matter which i've been instructed not to talk about at the moment ;)

    but roughly.. a site like this should be easily maintainable for under £200 per month.. just for the server...

    other things like code licences ... Forums/Portal add on to the cost.. and a few other things...

    Some websites stick Paypal logo as a way to ask for a donation from the visitor. This will surely helps Waddy's pocket . .
    After all hundreds or maybe thousands of people have benefited from this forum . .

    heh.. but how many people you expect to give donations :p

    anywayz... waddy decided that donations isn't a way to go a while back. Many reasons behind this. So we'll try to keep it up as long as possible by ourselves... hopefully we should secure a sponsor shortly though :)
