Default Re: How should Caudata.org be supported?

I am ok with adverts. It is just the way of the world now. Honestly google viagra ads, or ads for some random pet supply site don't bother me as long as it is bringing in cash to defray the costs. I have wondered why we don't have a vendor section where vendors can buy in for a piece and get their own little mini forum to advertise their goods and any potential goods. To see what I mean check out dendroboard. The vendor section wouldn't be a section where the vendor is having to defend themselves from negative feedback, just to advertise their own goods. But that is JMO.
I also was planning on donating as well as I did last year to become a member. I have receive much valuable experience from many here as well as many great deals on sals and newts. What I have saved buying from members on here probably is around $300-$400. That being said that $25 member fee or whatever it was last year was worth it to me. If we can't cover the site expenses and it goes away my sal and newt purchases will be severely curbed. Anyways I wish site membership would be reinstated. I know some have taken shots at John which I believe is completely unfair. If anyone thinks that this was a money making website just do the math on the member fee * the number of actual members. Anyways I was saddened when the memberships went away because of a few complainers and critics. I wish the critics would have drifted off instead of the memberships....anyways just my $0.02.
