thats not a bad idea at all; although i'm sure many of us would like to have the donation system back so we can get "special" tags haha.

G'day,

The catch to a percentage fee would be financial involvement in what is at best a quasi-legal selling system. If/when the proverbial shit hits the fan, ASC goes down with everyone who bought/sold here.

Sales tax? What are you Liberal?

That'd be so hard to inforce though... Sales are done through paypal and EMT... and cash... Doing that will just add another step to the transactions..

I say if they need money, a donation system is the best bet.

Thanks for the support guys. Sometime in the near future I will be changing the hosting relationship here, to reduce costs. I'll have a better idea of what the financial future of ASC is at that point - thanks for bringing up the ideas though, ever since we closed ASCA it's been running on savings, basically, and I should do something about it.

I'd toss $20 in for a snazzy Silver Member bar. Not sure if I'd use the space or not though (maybe).

Maybe we should give 20$ each so ASC can buy a container in HK so we can bring a shitload of AEG and GBB *dreaming*

Might as well throw in my two cents

Another board i am a member on ran into financial trouble and they turned to adsense. To be perfectly honest it hasn't made much of a difference at all. They did it in a very unobtrusive fashion and it hasn't degraded the quality of the site at all. They used adsense for about a year and then moved on to other forms of revenue. They now get retailers to pay for ad space and again it works very well.
The site

I would be happy to support this website, but before doing so I would like to see tighter under 18 year old features

I still think AdSense or something similarly unintrusive would generate good revenue given the volume and diversity of the traffic here: this could easily be combined with a user donation system to remove ads for those who still wish to contribute and/or don't want to see ads.

At least with advertising everyone is contributing some form of revenue, in one way or another. No free rides, more fairness for all.

I don't know all the stats from ASC (including operating costs) but I'd hazard an educated guess it could generate $50-100/day in revenue, possibly more (guessing from stats from my own server, hosting pics etc which I posted here).

It could potentially not only pay for hosting and related expenses, but also for some form of compensation for staff and/or occasional draws etc.
