Suggestions for Admin and Mods

I really don't think people understand how hard we work and how hard our job is at times

This place almost ended a few years back

Sometimes I wonder if it's all worth it
Every member on this forum appreciates the work you guys put in.
I don't know about others but i certainly speak for myself when i say that even though my activity on this forum has decreased recently. I still enjoy the fact that i have a place that i can go to discuss my favourite team with likeminded people and get into intelligent debate and conversation with fellow Knights fans.

If this forum wasn't still running I'd have no idea where i could do that.

What about a donations/membership??
Have a 30 day free login for new users.
Im not sure on a yearly membership price, though if the forum had merchandise members pack RE- stickers/hats/key ring etc.
Even a token system ( $10 buys 100 post ) plus a $10 per yr membership.
Those funds could be used to maintain the site.
They could also be used to have winning prizes for supercoach/tipping comps.
You could also use the funds for yearly awards.

Just a thought.

Keep up the good work guys, love this pace during the season.

Guess my idea got no traction..

I personally like the token idea, if members had to pay for posting it mite limit the arguing debates that go on for 50 posts with no outcome

You would also lose a whole bunch of members & stop any new ones coming in if you made them pay for it. Just the honest truth. I like lurking other forums on occasion for news & different perspectives & there's nothing worse than a forum that is exclusive, can't even look at the Rabbitohs one unless you're a member, click away from that **** straight away.

We have a long tradition here of not asking our members to pay any money

Jekk gets the final say but I prefer we keep that tradition

I remember a fair few years back now the hat was passed around to prevent adds popping up on the forum etc. I’m always happy to chip in and donate for whatever reason.

In theory it sounds good but then you have more work for the admin and members feeling entitled.

If it’s not broken don’t fix it.

Yes there will be a tipping comp this year Member.
88, I'm not keen to charge to post as Joshhh said we don't want to discourage new members or exclude anyone who doesn't (can't) pay. The forum however is run solely from funds put up by me and when we have prize competitions it comes from Rough, Josh and myself. We did pass the hat around a few years back and it was very successful, a few dollars here and there all added up to help. I would like to consider doing this again to pay for forum upgrades if they come about.

You guys should open up a Patreon or some sort of donation box, where people can slip in a few dollars if they want to help fund any costs. Patreon is a monthly subscription where someone can pledge something like 2 dollars a month. I'm sure it could help.
