    To old time and also new members....

    Due to the massive growth of the forum over the past couple of years, the hardware and management necessary to keep it running have also had to increase drastically.. and expensively.

    At this time this LARGE expense is coming out of my pocket, but due to further recent upgrades and hard times economically the time has come to ask from some support from our membership

    To this end there is a donate button located on the forum homepage and it will be most appreciated if you can make a contribution to the forums running costs.

    The monthly goal listed will just about cover the cost of the server and firewall...

    All Donations of £25 and over will earn the donor a custom user title of 'Forum Donor' and some perks of a few items that will be coming out soon (Bimmerforums UK sticker and membership card for one PLUS some discounts at various big parts suppliers that we are currently negotiating).
    oh, and a lot of gratitude from the hardworking moderating team....

    Thanks

    on behalf of Bimmerforums UK

    Update//

    Thanks to the original donors.
    Unfortunately, since the loyal few who dontated in our first month trialing this....
    peoples pockets have closed

    if you feel you have saved a lot of money or time because of advice given from Bimmerforums UK..

    PLEASE DONATE a bit to help towards our running costs.

    We provide (a lot of) our time for free, but I cannot afford to fund the ever increasing server and bandwidth costs on my own...

    Hi Boostist,

    I've only just joined the forum so I'm having a look around the site. It looks as though you're having a bit of trouble with funding and think you've been extremely generous with your time etc.
    Judging by the number of members you have, the running costs you are looking for are just pennies per month split between so many.
    Perhaps you need to be a little more persuasive!!
    By the way, I'd be happy to contribute a modest monthly/annual fee to help out.
    How many more out there are prepared to chip in?
    Cheers for now, Tone

    Thanks Tone
    Not many people notice things like running costs and time involved etc I think I spend more time on this site than I do anything else aside from working self employed in the week (which incidentally is not good at all at the moment due to the recession etc )

    When we first started the donations function a few months ago, we met the amount every month and one month even got £20 more (still no where near profit mind) but last month fell very short and this month who knows but we shall see!!

    I think your suggestion is a good one and something I will have to seriously look at if the donations dont make it again this month.... :/

    Thanks by the way to the generous folks who have made a donation...you know who you are guys

    See you on the forum mate

    the thinking is Tony,you ask a question that hopefully we can help you out with and you save a bundle by not taking it to the stealers...some of the money saved gets donated here to help more people that need help...and the cycle goes on.
    when 1 man is taking all the financial burden of paying for server time then the whole house of cards might tumble down and then the stealers win....and who wants to line their pockets lol?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    328mark is making a valid point there. We are all here with the technical knowledge to get your car problems resolved, so the least we expect in return is to continue to provide you with our services. Even if our information has helped you to get your pride and joy working to the optimum, there will always be another problem at a later stage where you will want our assistance again.

    I will be able to donate at the end of each month, I know how times are hard for most businesses. Best thing is to unite and help out each other..
    So @ the end of each month, I help out in every way that I can.... Just keep up the good work
