Is it can be donation tiem now plees?



Just wondering, since this site must have insane traffic, how financially stable is ASC?

Way back when, in 2005, there was a donation campaign. I'd like to think a lot of capital was secured, but is it enough to keep this site we all love running?

The total absence of sponsors on this site is kind of worrying me...

So what say ye?

Yes, I miss my silver member tag.

Given the volume and diversity of the traffic here (I know from the logs of images I post served off my server, with a thread from ASC as the referrer) even something simple and unintrusive like Google AdSense could generate a fair bit of revenue; ASC has the kind of traffic a lot of people try to whip up (and can only dream of) to generate money from AdSense.

And never mind stuff like arbitrage strategies to try and generate more "new traffic", ASC already shows up with top rankings for almost anything airsoft related, and quite a few things that aren't.

Personnally I'd prefer to drop a twenty in the donation pool than to have to deal with ads, but that's just me.

Maybe we could do like in the SA forums, where one can pay to change another user's avatar and title... Oh, exploitable!

Gee, 110 views and only one reply... though crowd!

i would also throw a twenty into something 'officially ASC', to help support a resource i use so frequently, and through which i recieve much knowledge and entertainment...

but i have no use for advertising,, at all period,, id like to see an end to it in general... not likely i know, but as far as ASC goes lets keep non-airsoft adds out.

I figure if money was an issue, someone would've asked already. I find the lack of updates far more worrying, as it's more complicated to accept donations of time.

Hey yea, I just realized all the gold/silver bars are gone. I got one so I could look cool and all, then you take them down. I feel scammed.

Maybe if funds are needed, and ads are the way, maybe contact Redwolf or WGC.

I was tempted to do a Goatse colored banner per your request, but I have enough infractions as it is...

What has been seen cannot be unseen apparently...

i thought it was pretty cool to see people with different membership levels and have their own little webspace, if they donated to ASC. I asked Hojo about the donation process a few years back and he said the donation system would be taken down promptly. I forgot exactly what he said but i think it was because ASC has enough money already?

Not sure how practical it would be but since ASC is a major buying/selling marketplace a percentage (1-2%) of all sales should be claimed by ASC.
