OK, here is the drill.

As you are all aware TVAus is basically a free for member use website. However, there are administrative costs that go towards the site being available for our continued use.

It the past these costs have been borne by Syl with the occasional donation.

Last year when Tek took over the reins he outlined a plan for advertising to start appearing on the site to pay for the costs. I was not a fan of advertising and on my own back offered to pay for the hosting fees for the rest of 2011 which amounted to about 7 months or so. This would then give Tek and the rest time to consider an alternate plan.

As you will also be aware the was a minor hiccup and the site was taken offline for about 24 hours or so.

The hosting fees are $20.00 a month with an one off domain name renewal sometime in September.

At this stage I am asking for expressions of interest from member who would be will to make a one off donation of $20 which will go towards the hosting fees.

I say at this stage because I am yet to actually discuss this with Tek and how it would work.

So, please consider a one off donation towards the hosting fees for the site so as to prevent Google Ads from appearing.

You can send me a PM of your interest.

I too would be happy to make a donation. If it means TVAus is adfree then i am for it. If it also means TVAus stays up then i am for that too.

38cents a week at $20 a year. Small price to pay really for those of us who are here everyday - 24 hours a day - 7 days a week, unless we have drop outs, computer problems, or a holidays away with no laptop :<|

That would probably be the preferred option all round, treeman.

Yep so to echo Gary's thoughts curretly the site is getting paid for by my credit card. This can not really continue in the way it is for too long I am working with Grays to get a paypal account set up and we will start accepting donations again. If that does not cover it then it will be google ad's. Not ideal but needed.

It's unlikely that I will respond to PM's so please tweet me if there are any issues with the site. My twitter handle is @stewartmatheson.

I think as soon as you can get the paypal thing happening it will at least go some way to defraying the costs.
