Have been meaning to do this for awhile, thanks for the reminder, thoroughly enjoy the site, worth the money to support it... and even as a Yorkshireman and true Loiner... 15p is nothing nowadays ...

Adam, do you mind me asking how much does the site cost to run annually?

Annual costs for domains, hosting and software licences come in at about £250 currently. There are probably other smaller ad-hoc costs throughout the year. Time wise I probably spend a couple of hours a day on admin, writing, publishing the site through social media and development or troubleshooting technical issues.

We’ve just moved hosts and increased our hosting costs slightly, we’ll see how that copes with the rise in demand I expect this season but I’m hopefully it will be more than sufficient.

I’ve been blown away by the response today to be honest, it’s been incredible. Costs, not taking into account my own time, are nearly covered. I’m hoping with any ad revenues generated from non- contributors we will be able to more competitions with prizes.

Thank you for the insight of the costs involved Adam

It's blatantly obvious our members love the MOT forum, great to see so many members contributing to the cost of running the site :supbo:

Done - long time viewer - hope this helps keeping the site going

MOT - amazing start to the season “At the end of the day people won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”

2 games and we have set this league on fire - although I look forward to discussing a dull 1-0 victory - nah - enjoy the ride!!

Same captcha prompt? This was supposed to have been disabled on the account.

Yup, same one. I've had an 'I am not a robot' box appear on the page a few times, but this was the whole, full on, ticking blurred pictures of American buses, shaboodle.
