    But that would mean less traffic and the need for more ad's.

    I think 5 dollars is a good amount. Actually make it 4.99 so people think it’s only 4. Lol

    But honestly I don’t go on the site as much as I used to and I would pay a monthly sub to make sure this site stays open.

    I understand that, but, there are those of us (long time Retirees) who don't have the money to help pay for this, and why should just a few folks in here have to pay out of their own pockets for us?.
    There isn't now, nor has there been since it's inception, a better site than .NET to interface with fellow Diehard Seahawks fans.

  • Not going to lie. That banner threw me for a loop at first. I assume it's understandable given my affiliation but as the tone of the thread implies, if it can keep .NET alive and thriving, that's all that really matters.

    Now the graphic designer has to ask...Can it be a touch smaller? ;)

    2nd. :)
    I wasn’t prompted by any owners or mods to post the following:


    Come on peeps let’s keep this place running. I understand money is tight for all of us sometimes but if you can throw the guys $10 once in awhile it would help.

    I know Aros and the previous owners LOST money running this public service.
    The “go fund me” site is easy to navigate and use. If an idiot like me can successfully use it, anyone can. 8)

    Just consider this place when you had a goodnight at the casino or got a raise or a bonus at work.

    Ok I’ll shut up now! 8)

    I don't think the size would bother me if it wasn't on a giant green background. That is just unpleasant to look at with the rest of the page background so dark.

  • I’ve lurked a long, long time here and the forum before it moved here. I really don’t post very much, but always come here first for any breaking Seahawks news and updates.

    What if you rounded up 24 diehards on this site and set up a $10/mo recurring billing cycle to keep it afloat. I’d volunteer to be one of the 24, so we only need 23 more. Thoughts?

    I can see the green background....and I'm using a Chrome Box and whatever OS they use. For what's it's worth. :les:

    Hey I donated my 7,500 NZD.

    Actually 'Merica's been nice lately and let the currency come back a bit. Was 40c to the dollar, now 60c.

  • Why not give a blue name to the highest donors?
    You might generate more cash.
    I also agree with pro PWR..I would pay a fee to
    join it.
    The ones who don't like it or cannot handle it
    can simply not pay that fee but enjoy the $$$
    it brings..There will be plenty who would pay.
    It's all about $$$ any way you look it.
