Question: Would you be willing to give a donation to help keep the site running??
I have already hit Pay Pal to help out. Think what it would cost you for a subscription to a magazine.
Come on Bro's
Show you care!!
Buy a subscription or make a donation by using the options in the menu on the top of the forum.
I'm new here. You probaby won't like my opinion.
I have several years experience co-administrating a rather large vBulletin-based forum that depends entirely on donations to pay the bills. I'm familiar with the tech side and server requirements and prices.
The question in the thread title was do I like this site. My answer is a qualified yes. I like the information and friendliness I've found here, but I refuse to be coerced into buying a "subscription" merely to be able to conduct simple search. I've resorted to using a Google search of the publicly available portions of this site: http://www.google.com/search?q=barbe...q-brethren.com
