Yes basically I think you guys hit the nail on the head. I use a few, mainly this one and the another. I just always feel this seems more relaxed and people having a laugh. I always feel more welcomed here. Well until you tell me to bugger off!! lol Oh and I'm happy to help if i have the skills to do so. Would it be an idea do some type of membership. Im a member of the VW T4 forum, where anyone can join for free, but if you want some added benefits you pay a tenner membership per year. There a few benefits, but my fav is the discounts retailers offer to members. It has paid for its self god knows how many times over. For new users who are new divers this could be very favourable and help fund running costs. Retailers who would like to sell or advertise on the forum do pay a considerable amount more. Not sure what you could offer more experienced divers who have most/everything already though. Just a thought. Would prefer it stayed free, but needs must at times.
