Yes, that's the bit that fascinates me. Back in 2008 I sprang for the Supporter's fee. I'm not quite sure why. Possibly I felt that it was the right thing to do, as I had got so much entertainment value out of the site and spent so much time taking the p1ss out of some of it's members, that I felt I should make it clear who's side I was really on

I couldn't really give a jumping jack whether I'm a member or a supporter....

I'm delighted to have gained way more than 20 worth of knowledge in the couple of months I've been reading the posts on this forum and I wholeheartedly appreciate the time and effort the admin team put in to make the forum worthwhile so, hey, it cost me three packets of Marlboro.

They can make me the bilge rat if they want!

Did you just "do the right thing" and catch me napping?

Paid a while back & noticed the inbox expansion immediately !!
To be honest the 20 seems like good value for a well run site. I've picked up loads of info plus an outboard, gauges and a much thicker skin...

well....

the shetland owners site is a wopping 5.00 for life and if you are not a member you can not see a big part of the forum. ok its a lot smaller but the people are just as helpful. Other forums like wsf are free.

I also agree that a bigger avatar and bigger email box is a lot of money for 20.00 and thats if it was for life let alone per year.

Nobody is required to pay - and there are no 'closed' forums. 20 is a way to acknowledge the RIBnet brings you some fun, knowledge, interest or entertainment. Sites like this CAN run just on Ad / Trade Member input but it depends how intrusive you want them to be to your enjoyment. Currently everyone (who is signed in) has the option to turn Ads off etc.

Avatar and mailbox sizes are fringe benefits - not the driving force for signing up.
