    60.000 members paying 50 bucks each.... Or if just 10 % paying, that's $300.000. And the content is produced for free by the members.
    OF is a great place, I just dont understand why full transparancy aren´t presented as the forum evolves

    I will defend transparency and the democracy with my life wearing my Officer :)

    If only there had been some sort of tool ... an instrument really ... that could be used to inspect things closely...

    Guess I should come clean: Those ads are from me

    While you all have been putting your money into Gamestop and crypto, I've been busy quietly cornering the market on what really matters!

    Bud - you don't have to pay.

    Nobody has to pay.

    We are voluntarily sending our money, in support.

    You don't have to.

    As a result, your cries for "transparency" (accompanied by photos of ammunition) leave a little to the imagination...

    And the server electricity is free, the design is free and the maintenance is free ::facepalm2::

    Boy you need to wake up and smell the coffee. ( by the way a coffee is $5 )

    Smelling the coffee is $50 - every time you inhale the coffee, you’re taking away a noble gas that’s vital in the operation of alarm watches.

    Done! A drop in the bucket compared to what the creators have invested. Also compare to what I have gained here. Thanks!

    So you want to know how much money is left after the donation/membership fee. Why? I'm trying to understand.

    I was going to ask the same question.
    I don’t mind the ads so if they bring in more revenue I’m happy to keep them.
    Otherwise happy to subscribe.

    Actually.... now that I think about it, do we really have to have an Omega symbol on those stripey things?
    I want a winged hourglass. :p

    I'm curious: why would Paypal force the payer to use a credit card when purchasing a membership? Why would a bank transfer (which is typically, if not always backed-up by a CC) not be an option?

    Guys, no surprise here, but Tony would prefer to pay in gold bullion, smelted sterling silver, or some other form of post-apocalyptic currency, please :D

    Quite true, but the forced (?) support of credit card companies is my primary concern, in this instance.

    I don't recall having experienced it previously, but my account definitely restricted "this" transaction to a CC. Very odd.
