Only a small, but heartfelt thank you for all your efforts.

Bill and Keith are the glue that keeps the GPL community together.

After the short notice from Bill I would like to thank Bill and Keith for what they have done!
Sure one of the most important GPL stuff is concentrated here and it's such a great site  :thumbup:

However, like Bill I'm also dedicating my money to some GPL related sites and would like to remember some of the SRMZ/GPL community to check out the Donate button on the lower end of the page. Unfortunately our community isn't sponsored by people like John W. Henry ;) so while the addons are done in the freetime of individuals, offering such a service isn't possible without paying for it.

Enough of it. I just wanted to say thanks Bill and Keith and to point to the small Donation button  :wave:

It's easy to take for granted these sites that Bill Cooper pays for.  It's when they're temporarily down that you realize how important they are.  

If we can get double the numbers of people contributing, even just a little, that would help make this a more secure place.

It's just amazing what Dangermouse and Bill Cooper do for us, funding and maintaining the forums and Track database sites.  A big thanks to you and hopefully more people will step up to help with the costs.

Only 10 members so far this year offering contributions?

Being here is priceless and the payout is 100% certain, so any contribution is very much a bargain.
Can't put a price on the benefit, but there surely is a cost.

More need to step up, especially those who can more easily be more generous, and those with a vested interest, if they care to sustain it, even if modest.

Hi !


Don't trust what you see about donation.

I use a different way for my donation, so this system to show the donations never will realise it.


Greetings

Yes Achim, aware you and others have been generous in support of these forums and Grand Prix Legends for many years.
Guess like myself you realize the incredible value that SRMZ and its sister sites offer anyone who chooses to visit.
For many reasons, it is priceless in my view.

When someone makes a donation, it makes me feel good.

Not sure why, but somehow it makes me smile inside to see someone else cares enough about Grand Prix Legends and SRMZ to put something up.

It means they know the value they receive by being here, (and in my view), hope to pay some of that priceless benefit back in the most critical and efficient way.

Also happy to notice many times there are over 100 users on-line.
Yet, it seems so few choose to make a donation and we know there is a cost to our being able to freely share our enthusiasm and friendship.

While we are each welcome to offer support in our own way, in any way, my please-wake-up post a few days ago was to encourage those who are capable to consider beginning and maintaining current supporter status.

Just an idea...and only a few clicks away.
:)
