If you guys need money, why not get commercial sponsorship? Another audio board, head-fi.org, has done this without compromising the forums.

Prune, we are working out ways to get commercial sponsorship without allowing commercialism in the forum end of things or allowing ANY commercial considerations to affect forum content and the free exchange of ideas.

In the meantime, for a couple weeks out of every year, we'll plague you with requests for donations.

Like this one:
we have now worked out a way that members can contribute via credit card rather than PayPal alone. For details, email webmaster@diyaudio.com .

Sent mine in today... so far less than a 1/2% of members have helped out.

Push the button, make a donation, every little bit helps.

Dave, how much money does DIY need per year to operate, and how much do they get? Every little bit of info helps.

I sent an email on monday saying I want to donate, preferably by creditcard. I have not yet had a reply, though. Tell me what to do and I will do so.
