Re: Help Keep Two Wheeled Texans Going!

Please tell me $62.16 for April is just something wonky with the monthly auto calculator thing.

That's what I was thinking! I can't believe TWT can't get more support.

It is not automatic. I just haven't been keeping to my regular schedule lately and just haven't sat down to put the time in to update it. April was about average I think.

Okay, I got it updated. April was a little over average. The average is probably around $800-900/month. It really fluctuates. Some months we barely hit $600-700 and some we hit $1100-1200.

Right now we have 15,872 users with active accounts, and of that 160 are currently Forum Supporters. The number of supporters has stayed right around the 150-160 mark from as far back as when we had about 5K users. It has not always been the same people though. Some people will donate for a while, then stop. New people start to donate for a while and then they stop. Some start and stop as circumstances in their lives allow/demand. However, there are some folks that have been donating consistently and continually for a long time. I appreciate ALL of the supporters because they do make continuation of the forum possible

Looks like May is going gang busters also. You're already near your monthly average and today is only the 13th. Possibly not updating the totals had people thinking less money was coming in and spurred some donations as a result. Maybe your daughter is gonna get that new bike after all

Why sad Lee? Remember those totals don't include advertising money either. Nobody's getting rich but the site is turning a respectable profit every month thereby ensuring its continuation. Remember this site provides a service but it is a private for profit business.

Not complaining or trying to stir the pot just making sure everyone realizes this. Some rally for donations like TWT is a non profit charity or something. I donate occasionally but I'm not a $60 a year "Forum Supporter". That doesn't mean I'm not doing my part to keep this site alive.

Re: Help Keep Two Wheeled Texans Going!

We get maybe $150/month from advertising. Donations are by far the main support for the site.

If you consider the time that goes into running the site, I don't know about the "respectable profit" But I did not start the site with the goal of making a ton of money. I am fine with people supporting it as they see fit.

I enjoy TWT and have met a lot of really good people. I noted I would donate if I sold my bike on TWT. I sold it to another member and just gave a little back. Thanks.
