I owe a lot to this forum and the people who run it, so a little help is on its way. Keep up the good work and stay safe :-))

Lest We Forget
« Reply #1302 on: April 18, 2020, 11:58:32 AM »

We are in trying times where seemingly most of what we love and hold dear is stretched to increasing levels of sadness and worry.

Whilst our club meetings, boating lakes, and events have been shut down we are trapped indoors developing serious withdrawal symptoms from our aquatic endeavours.

Amongst “key” people working from home providing an emotional lifeline to lessen our boating woes I would like to give a big shout out and applause to one person’s tireless work on our behalf.  Our very own Martin !!!!

Where would we be without his key work in keeping this essential free forum going, where we can read and communicate with other fellow enthusiasts.  Without this uniqe forum we would have no information or means of communication.

Around this time of year Martin has big software and hosting costs.  His voluntary work for us all depends upon our help.

Please – If you have not already donated to Model Boat Mayhem, please do so now.

If we “lost” this forum in these trying times it does not bear thinking about.

We've all got a lot on our minds at the moment with the current lockdown situation.
Here at Modelboat Mayhem I also have the big Web hosting bills coming up soon.
The next round of bills is about £850 pounds, and once again I am reaching out to members for donations to help with these bills.

All contributions to Model Boat Mayhem running costs are gratefully received.


                                                                             ......   just sayin'   :-)

Amazing !Over 7,500 members registered on the forum. Wouldn't you think the target was an easy one ?  It seems that the rest of the world are quite happy to treat forums such as ours as a Google/Youtube freebie.
Much of the content on Mayhem is priceless !

Absolutely! Nothing really comes for free. At the very least put up a fiver and preferably a bit more. For what you get it is incredibly cheap at the price. The advice given can save you lots of cash when buying stuff alone. Don't leave it to others or to Martin's personal finances.

That 7,500 means nothing outwardly really. How many active users or paid up donators?  You have to register just to see pictures, so am a bit surprised it's not higher. Unless you mean full members?


I do wish there was more of a presence of traders also though. That's usually what forums are about -good traders are on them so you know where to turn to.


It's only been a relatively short while.

I remember 65 something years ago, my High School maths teacher warned the Class of making donations to supposed World Health Groups [to feed the starving masses] when the majority of the $ raised went to new air-conditioning units and higher pay for salaried staff in big Cities

...Well, this has stuck with me.......I give my Blood ......it's free for me, but priceless for others, however I decline to donate $1.00 to those big world Charities collecting via daily Television or on every 2nd street corner

7500 MBM members is one statistic, however I wonder what is the average daily logon [hits] to MBM is?

MBM is certainly not a big world wide Charity :o , so come on Guys.......[at this rate, Martins family vacation to Venezuela won't happen this year ;D ......]
