Seeing as how there are almost 400 members on the forum now, maybe Kallisti and Head could talk to the online absinthe retailers about some advertising space $$ to be able to afford a bigger bandwidth or simply a bigger bandwidth site or something. Almost 400! That's quite a marketing base. I'm sure a lot of the people here wouldn't even know about the online retailers if it weren't for this forum. Hell, a lot of the other online absinthe sites reference this site anyway. This is THE site about all things absinthe. Just something to think about.

I was only thinking about this because a while back somebody posted that the site needs a bigger bandwidth and somebody else posted that the site would "fill up" with posts eventually or something. Anybody else got some thoughts about this.

Speaking as a fan of public TV and Radio, I'd like to see this not happen. It's a great idea in terms of providing revenue for the site, but it opens the door to some uncomfortable possibilities.

Suppose LDF or FSC sponsor the site and then go on to produce a really sucky batch of swill (I know that's an unlikely scenario, but humor me). We do a review where we say it blows. The sponsors says "I'm yanking my ads." This kind of thing happens in the media all the time. The sponsors call the shots.

I'd prefer to know that a review I read is based on actual opinions rather than a desire not to offend the maker.

Just my 2¢.

Nope. Ain't gonna happen.

Nice thought though.

It's bad enough when people like "Mr. A-Hole Fils"
get their product listed here for free and then DEMAND
something ridiculous in return.

There's been discussion of this in the past and so far
the Mom&Pop route seems the best.

No banners, no popups.

Also, of the 400 people only about 40 post.
And only a dozen post often.

No problem Lil K'.

Funding and support comes from
the coffers of Sepulchritude (No lunch
for Head for 2 week) and generous
people like you who poke that Paypal
button on occasion.

I would just like to second that motion. That this is a truly AWESOME website. Quite possibly the best I have EVER been to. Because I want to, I'm gonna do a quick review, DEVIL STYLE
The forum software: dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif /4
The Layout: dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif /4
The People: dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif dev.gif /4

It's people like head and kallisti that dont get enough credit for unadultered shit like this.
So to the mother and godfadda of dis site: my hat is truly off to you. This web would be a lot better place if there were more people like yourselves. Expect a donation from me soon. THANK YOU!

Conju: I will add a resounding second to your tribute to this incredible site, Head and Kallisti, and its assortment of lovable eccentrics, and a few lovable non eccentrics.!!!

Unadultered??? You mean, there's no adultery allowed here? Oh poop.gif

Too too kind too!

I'm just the janitor.
Seriously. The hard work, dedication
and credit goes to Kallisti, Ted, Artemis,
Peter, Ian. Forgive me for forgetting any of
you out there that deserve it.

I'm just a guy who was looking over a
friends shoulder one night and asked
"What the fuck are they arguing about?"

I still don't know shit from shinola.

There's a $10 S&H charge added when you donate to this site. Just letting everyone know so you don't have to go back and readjust your donation.

I believe the obvious question is: does the $10 S$H go to the site, or are they just using it to pay their phone sex bill! dev.gif
