Looks like we exceeded our bandwidth again! Can you believe we exceeded 100 GB of transfer this month! Yikes!

Nothing a credit card can't fix, luckily. Maybe it's time to break down and put some (discrete) ads on the site. *sigh*

I think providing a "donation" button would be more acceptable than ads. As payment, people get a "contributor" label in their avatar window. That works on other forums I'm on.

Beat Y'all to it... Sent Mr. Hempy a PM a little while ago, asking if he'd take a donation via PayPal... Haven't heard back from him yet, but I'm in for donating some bucks to the forum.

I'd like it too. I haven't started my build yet but know this will be an invaluable resource. After seeing the bandwidth messages this morning, I looked for somewhere to donate but could not find anything.

Donate button please!

We use it on other forums I manage and it works well.

Tom...

While contributions might not be part of the Locost creed, there is a wealth of info here that more than makes up for a donation.

I'm in, well if that's what you decide to do of course.

I'm in too. Time to support the habit. I'd prefer you set up a PaPal account, but just about any method would work. just let us know.
