Hey - slow down cowboy - don't break the piggy bank - I blew the budget within the first 7 days of Feb :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :roll:  :violent2:

Maybe its time for some advertisers?

I just hate irritating banner ads - must find a different way?

What about approaching some of the dealers that provide us with these wonderful toys called DS bikes, to advertise, and some of the dudes that service bikes.
You never know, there may be some interested parties.

Kilersa.

Give us no-brainer's (regarding IT)  some background on the costs involved to run a forum. Would help to search/approach business/parties for sponsorship if one knows the moola involved.

Thanks

As you just seen its constantly changing - related to the size of your database and the traffic you generate (bandwidth).  As we grow - so the cost increases - don't understand me wrong - this is a nice, if somewhat unexpected, problem to have.  

How do you guys feel about unobtrusive ads on this forum?  partly to pay for the hosting, but also to promote relevant products.

We don't want for eg a BMW or Yamaha to sponsor the site - normally this comes with gag-orders/censorship - we would like to stay independant and focus of what we do best - d/s riding :lol:  :lol: !

I'm all for it if it helps to make the owners of the forum lives a bit easier.

My brother-in-law organises a yearly GS run into Mozambique. I think the same area with sand that Shark is going to do. This he does in conjunction with Nelspruit BMW. Nice full coulour brochures etc.

Even though it is BM specific, the trip is DS and people arranging these type of trips would love exposure on DS/Adv type sites. Also the Suzuki trip RR did last week. Trip was open for all DS types. Desert Run. Just to name a few.

Just an idea.
