Annual Membership Fee

Does anyone know how many members we have? If we have at least 1000 members, you could charge a one time fee of $10 and cover the cost of the web design. After that you could have an annual membership fee of $5 or less for site upkeep. Or we could have ads on the site. I don't like ads, but I could tolerate them if it got the site back on its feet. This site is a great resource for collectors. In fact, it is the only resource available. Is this workable, or am I just delusional?

An annual fee might work if it comes with premium features, but to block off the site to non-paying members probably would not work.

I wouldn't be able to afford it... I can't even make rent.

I say just put ads on here.  I would gladly pay a $10-$20 one time fee if some changes that I proposed before were made, but it looks like those were not even promised in the fundraising campaign either.  At this point the site is just a working (though not used by more than 5 or 6 people) message board since posting of new tapes to the archive has been suspended for what seems like 6 months.

And even the fundraiser looks like a bust.

Yeah, if those weren't promised, go ahead with the ads. It seems I always join these Database sites before they run into trouble or something.
