I've just realised that it's not obvious to all how easy it is to contribute.
Just click the bail out Mayhem tab  {-)  below our lone sponsor  :-))

To be fair the amount of people on here we should be one year ahead - I'll make another donation as we have to hit this target

Hi, as per post on film club...
"Hi Martin,  how come every time I "quote" you it is impossible to exclude my reply mixed-in with your original post under the "blue bubble" quotation.  It's not the same when quoting other posts?  If I copy and paste your words It's OK but if I forget and just hit "quote" then the reply just gets mixed in."

On the subject of forum funds:  I was trying to find a recent comment saying to use the forum for picture uploads because it is "free".  I'm sure we all agree it's not for free -we chip in to try and cover costs to keep forum hosted.  I deliberately avoid uploading pics directly because I firmly believe forums are not pic hosting sites, it's good to have the facility but server capacity / bandwith for picture hosting shouldn't be the main thing.  Thats just my take I guess though.

I suggest that by 'free' this was meant in the same term as access to the NHS 'Free at point of use'. Some donate while others can't or don't but can still access it.

I reckon that this hosting facility levels the playing field (voluntarily) for people who want to host a number of images sufficient to put them above the arbitrary limits imposed by hosting sites for free accounts. I am not sure if any 'free hosting' platforms have limits to the number of pictures they allow for free, but the options are there to use if we do not want to host via the Forum host.


I would rather donate knowing that it helps provide a level for all to upload their pictures for their build logs etc than set a limit  and risk losing lots of useful and inspiring images.
