If you do the auto recurring, what you are reallydoing is starting a new subscription each month automatically after the previous one expires. The automatic email goes out a week before the end of EACH subscription just as a courtesy reminder to keep people from letting a subscription run if they forget about it or to prevent it from accidentally lapsing if they want to keep it going.

Re: Help Keep Two Wheeled Texans Going!

A couple times of year someone will ask this question. I think that the email is part of Scott's master plan to slide a donation bump in under the radar...

Geez. All you have to do is ask. I'm always good for a thread bump. (and a donation... I like it here...)

Where can you get sooooo much for sooooo little.

If you read and enjoy TWT as much as I do, you need to donate. It's the right thing to do.

Re: Help Keep Two Wheeled Texans Going!

Hey Scott. Knew you when you were on the TexCycle Yahoo group and you started this forum. Well done.

I quit riding for a while but still have not come to my senses. Have you considered Google Ad Sense for forums? With all the traffic you have I think you would be awash in money, and the advertising does not have to be annoying. In fact it is very on point, helpful and most people won't even notice it. I even use adsense on my tiny, neglected website, Best-Motorcycle.com and do well enough to get 1099s from Google.

Congratulations on a great forum.

Hey Mac,

Yeah. I have thought about it. I guess for me I just don't like the look. I've seen it introduced on other forums and I just don't care for it. I know it might make me more money, but I'd rather focus on the look of the site. I have thought about doing the Amazon affiliate thing where I get a percentage of the sales when people buy stuff after linking to Amazon from here. I just haven't gotten serious about it.

I would do the amazon thing since I buy 80% of everything I own through them. Ad sense however I hate. The annoying pop up boxes and so forth make me cringe every time I mouse over them by mistake. Thank you for not implementing ad sense. Get serious though on the amz thing. I spend about 50 to 100 a month through them without blinking.

The annoying pop up boxes to which you refer are Google Ad Words. I do not like them, either.

Google Ad Sense is the ads you see in the margins, headers or footers of web sites. They are no more obtrusive than the banner ads Scott is already using. Or maybe you hadn't noticed.

Here is a forum that uses Google Ad Choice, a variation of ad sense that displays the ad based on the type of web site you are viewing rather than the content of the page. Can you find the ad? (It's at the very top.) Reportedly, this forum makes $10,000 a month.

Did you notice the ad choice ad on that last link? They are on many web pages you view, but probably never notice them. But sometimes they can be relevant and helpful. If you have a web site, it's really nice to get a check every month, too.

Oh cool didn't know that. I get the two crossed up and thought they were one in the same. I don't mind the banner unless they start talking.

Re: Help Keep Two Wheeled Texans Going!

Hi
I am back after a real long time and saw this post for donations. If I refresh your memory, I promote Gaurav Jani's movies in US "Riding Solo" and "One Crazy Ride". If you let me sell these DVDs on the forum I'd commit $2 for every DVD sold.

By the way Gaurav is going to be in town from India on May 24th and we shall be screening OCR.

Thanks

Jag

If you like, you can start a thread in the Vendor Forum. There is no charge. Of course, any donations to TWT would be very much appreciated.

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
