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 ......]

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

So here's my pitch......Martin is far to nice to keep dragging this thread up so I will.  Last year we had a near miss with funds keeping our amazing forum going.  So let's get ahead this year.  Come one everyone just donate a 5 and we will be there without any problem.  I'm going to do mine now so ..........come on we all know that without this we would all be annoying our spouses even more so you are saving yourselves.........the link is on the front page..........you know it makes sense  :-))
