      Like any community, this site needs visitors. Regular visitors and people who spread the word about this community are crucial to keeping this community alive but our treasured Community Supporters directly contribute a small amount to the actual running costs, bandwidth fees and server rental that keeps the site up and running for us all to enjoy.

      If you are not one of our Community Supporters, I’m asking you to take a few seconds to vote in this poll to give me some idea as to why. This could help establish how to get more supporters for the community and keep it running for years to come. Thank you!

      It would be GREAT to get more that one voter on this poll.

      Since I posted this poll over a week ago, over 400 people have visited the community forums. Sadly I don’t have any way to seeing how many viewed this thread but I did make it sticky in an attempt to highlight it.

      It’s hard to find out what non-Supporters are looking for if only 1 replies. 🙁

      Could you offer a short period of supporter status as a reward for answering the question?

      How short? It’s a good idea.

       

      My worry would be someone giving flat answer just to be able to download all the videos etc. in the hours/days they get free and not engaging.

      Also, people who get stuff free are far more likely to give it away to others (upload to other sites etc.).

      Clearly, I need to do something to encourage more interaction…

      Like any site, anonymity becomes more difficult when you register. But Ed also takes the same risk as Community Supporters and supporting something you enjoy (or get something out of even if you feel there could be more benefits) might allow it to continue – whereas not supporting it means it is more likely to fail and disappear.

      Extra benefits could be made available as Ed has indicated he is willing to consider adding more. But what other benefits would you like?

      Glad you are enjoying the site enough to make your view known. Thank you for that!

      I don’t know what form of currency this is and what that amounts to in US dollars?

        The current exchange rate is £1= $1.36,  or $1 = £0.74. So 1 KoFi = £3 = $4.05 USD.

        If you click on the “Find out more here” link, it takes you to a page which, as well as Community Supporter Status, explains what KoFis are.

      For all those who vote that it is too expensive to become a supporter. what sort of price level are you thinking would be acceptable?

      I have no job, no income, am completely financially dependent and wish to remain anonymous.

        Anonymity is important to many members of this site. Hope you find a job soon @shynudedude83. It’s a weird job market these days.

      What benefits would everyone expect from being a Community Supporter?

       

      Please bear in mind it’s not a membership as such, it’s a means to support the community here.

      I’m unsticking this one but not closing it.

      How can I get more people to vote on this?

       

      The feedback could be important but with 200+ people per week visiting the site, 7 votes in 16 months isn’t great.

      I can assure you that #5 isn’t at risk.

      How many more benefits (and what sort of thing) would clinch it for you?
