Thanks for pointing it out Chris - I merrily use the site not even thinking about what it costs to put together
I would be very happy to help as well
Hi Chris and everyone :)
Thanks very much indeed for asking, it's very much appreciated. You're truly a great bunch of people for even thinking of it.
You're right, these things are expensive to setup and run, but I promise you that I fully knew the costs before we started and planned accordingly.
I've already had a few advertisers email me and ask if they can advertise but I don't want the adverts to be annoyingly all over the place. So we have a few advertisers we'll add soon. To be honest I'm really pleased with that because we weren't going to ask anyone before the main website was up but we've had so much interest already :) Just being open and honest, if it helps some way towards the costs and provide a few prizes for competitions :D I'd be happy.
I've got maple leaf tickets for disney tickets, I've got amazon and simply by clicking on the disney secrets amazon link when buying anything from there, you get the usual amazon price/service and we get a few pence towards the site. I'll get those links up somewhere soon since it's a no hassle, win-win way to help.
Perhaps in time we'll do a secret passholder or premium member type idea for a few quid a year but we're not there yet :D
So thanks very much for thinking of me, but all I want is for everyone to keep on having a great time and enjoying the site!
I'm not surprised that you have so much interest in the site by advertizers! This site has taken the 'net by storm. It was put up fast, and even though it's not where you want it to be content wise, it's still so fast growing that advertizers are seeing it's real potential.
That's what happens when you have someone put up a site for the right reasons, eh? It takes a person who is truly concerned about all members of the community to run a site that will be a place that advertizers want to be associated with for the long run.
I do like the idea of members being able to contribute if they can though. We'll have to work on that one, eh?
