Hey thanks for the thought, but donations are definatly not necessary
And I'm in the same boat as you Petercat.. I've seen sites grow and go the way of a subscription system and I can tell you I hate it as much as you do. Thats why I promise, this place will always be free and never be fee based, thats part of the reason we made this site. So sit back and just enjoy the place, no need to worry about the $$
All I ask for in return is for everyone to vote in my polls in the Annoucements section of the forum, lol
But seriously, thanks for the thought !
