    Default Dear Aids

    I know you don't accept donations, you've made this very clear over the years, but I think you should reconsider.

    There's many people here who love this forum enough that they'd donate in a heart beat. There's no shame in accepting money when you're not demanding it and people are willing. You've been providing access to this site and all of its contents free of charge for about 5 years now, I say it's the least anyone here can do to show their support.

    Sure, some of the old timers have moved on or no longer find interest in CL as much as they used to, but there's many other newcomers here that just discovered this haven. For them coming to CL has become a routine; apart of their daily lives. Losing CL now would be devastating for all of those individuals.

    You could make something like a Donator usergroup to award those that gave you 10$ or more. If just 5 people gave you $10, you'd have $50. You could use that money to go towards the forum; upgrade your vBulletin 4 license to include CMS, or buy a vBulletin 5 license. Yeah, vBulletin 5 is out. This is a chance to refresh the forum, and start anew. I'd be more than willingly to temporarily lend your admins a hand with it, just to get it up and running.

    I also know that you're going through changes in your life as well, so CL may not be your priority right now, but try to think of the possibilites if you were to accept donations. Who knows, you might start feeling the way you used to about this place.

    Note: I understand aids' recent thread is about a bill being overdue, and not because he doesn't have enough money to pay it. This post is not a reply to that, hence I made my own thread.

    Well now it feels like I made this in vain, but I'm sure many people are sighing in relief now. I'll keep an eye out for any new posts you make.

    There's a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

    Most of the plugins we use haven't been upgraded for vbulletin 5 and there aren't many for vbulletin 5 at all.

    Upgrading would limit us more at the moment.
