Agree with you there Fonzey. It’s a passive non invasive income stream. It generates around £80/quarter on the other site I run.

I think my only reservation is I don’t know how often I’d personally post a ‘skim link’ (being honest with myself) and I’m happy to just commit to funding a thing I get value from. But I could easily be the minority… I’m happy with whatever you’d find best Andy, and I’ll try my best to remember the skimlinks if that’s the way we go?

My sentiments too - the amount of cash we’re talking about is achievable with not many members pledging support. Happy to do whatever is deemed best, but the simplicity of ‘pay a small amount once a year’ is undeniably attractive ;)

All very encouraging gents.

I would like someone other than me to escow the funds should this happen. It keeps things transparent then.

Ill build another local VM to me and migrate the data so we can get an idea of what we could make it look like, and get a feel for the direction we might like to go.
