Just went to see what the Skoda Owners Forum offer for paying. They do have a yearly subscription scheme for £12 per annum. For that they chuck in:

FREEDOM - An enhancement which gives you access to all of the present normal registered features plus:
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are supporting BRISKODA (the primary reason to contribute)
  • Exclusive Freedom Talk forum, 99.9% unmoderated.
  • Opens up your account to access your own @briskoda.net email account and web interface (Gmail over 2000Mb of storage).
  • Advanced notice of our events with priority booking and discounted ticket price.
  • First access to our promotions / group buys.
  • Access a gowing list of discounters, suggest one we'll investigate it...
  • A journal to show of your projects, car related or not.
  • Access to the latest developments on the site.
    • Forum Filters, hide those forums you really have no interest in.
    • Gallery access, over 20Mb of storage.
    • Extra PM and attachment space, over 20Mb of attachments.
    • Tyre Calculator, see what tyres fit and impact of your choice.
    • Ask a Tech - Forum.
    • Use of the classifieds, Items for Sale forums.
    • more as the site grows...
As you said it's always an option for the future. Why not create a poll to gain some user feedback?
This is what pays for the Punto Sports Club servers. We have a similar setup to Briskoda by the sounds of it.

A lot of forums do this now. You will still people who moan (like Dave ) but the majority will be fine and happy with the fact that they are supporting the forum/club.

I also can't see the advertisements because of my firewall/anti virus.

Re: new ads under 1st post

What about a fee for Classified ads?
Or, you can only advertise if you have donated?

If you charged could have different charges for different sections...

I personally wouldn't think anything of paying a fiver for advertising a car and a quid for parts etc.
The ad's on here run and run, which is more than you get on ebay/autotrader and those two cost far more (I know they get a much larger audience).

Or if doing the 'only if you have donated' you can donate there and then, via a link on the listing forms

Just looked, there are 184 ad's at the moment, 131 of them are for sale ad's.

So could have easily got £300 for those ads.

Re: new ads under 1st post

Before everyone throws their arms up again, I'm experimenting with ad placement It was pointed out the last post might be useful as it pops up in the screen whenever you use "quickreply".

Admittedly if there are only 2 posts it looks off, as its post,ad,post,ad - so trying to find the variable to only show if X other posts have been made.
