Thread: Attention All Nova-nuts!

  1. #11

    Re: Attention All Nova-nuts!

    The idea is to avoid advertising if we can help it - the first attempt at a ressurected forum had REALLY QUITE ANNOYING ads, which made us go for a paid for and adless model. Dan needs to know he can cover the hosting fees well before they are due, if there are further donations after that time they go towards improving and maintenance.
    It's a 52 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    Open to donations all year long, Ken. The site payments are due in December, I think. While we can't expect everyone to pitch in, every little bit helps!

    Update on this:

    A membership system will be coming in to force in the coming weeks.
    Everyone who has donated so far will automatically be added to the system, people who haven't will have limited access to the most popular forums.
    It's a sad move but we have to ensure the site fees are paid each year and if this year is anything to go by then we are beginning to have trouble.

    I for one certainly don't want to see Euro-Nova go down the pan, but something has to be done and this is the only option left open to us at the moment.
    Membership fees will be payable by either cheque, cash or paypal as usual, and paypal payments can be paid using the donate button at the bottom of every screen which will give instant access.

    Cash and cheque payments, PM me if you are sending one and I will grant full access pending the arrival of the cheque.

    We are hoping that this will not drive away some of the lesser posting quieter members.

    Remember, its a small price to pay for Euro-Nova, we're the only site of our kind and we are now worldwide!

    Paying members will still receive the donation gifts each year, as a thank you for your support.

    There will be an email going around all members in the next couple of days detailing this a little more and asking for feedback if you are concerned.

    As always, I'm available on email and PM with any queries.

    Regards

    Dan.
