    Would it not be feasible to make the ebook section and other sections of the forum available to forum supporters only, I'm sure no one would mind paying a few pounds to have access to such a large library of ebooks and maybe even the radio codes section.

    lots of people join just to get a code or a few ebooks for free and a small fee (£2.50 maybe for a month's support) would be beneficial to the upkeep of the site.

    I'm a member of another forum and its a years sub , a fiver , if you want a radio code
    still a lot cheaper than any other method,

    although I think there is some legal stuff about just how you charge,
    apparently you cant actually charge for the membership, or something along those lines, but there is obviously a workaround

    they don't need to say membership, they just put a caveat on the ebooks, radio codes section that they're for members who've been here a minimum of 3 months, or forum supporters
    they either drive to work in silence for 3 months or cough up a few quid, rather than the current system where they join, get a radio code or a few bestsellers and never return, the site gains nothing from this set up.
    Obviously if they go on to become contributing members of the forum, we all gain

    could be a fire hazard there Aldan!

    TBH I wouldn't be happy with making money off of someone elses work but I can see the point of it BUT not happy adding its as a sub area only.
    For that reason I will add a forum and a download section that is CLOSED to everyone that is NOT a 'FS' or 'VIP'.
    That way it's an extra to the already benefits we have as a forum supporter and those that have already donated to it.
    VIPs naturally get it because they have to be very trusted, to get VIP so ....

    Would that suit everyone?

    I think that would be a good start HiTeck, maybe it would get more popular and increase revenue for the upkeep of the site as time goes on and content increases.
