As we live in a world full of commercialism, I wonder why UKL has not taken the 'switch' to a commercial site.

Become commercial UKL, and you'll reap the benefits that it brings. Think of a nice little income via adverts - no skin off your nose surely!

Charge users for use of this site, because they are willing to pay!...aint you?

I'm not willing to pay at all, all that I got from internet is free.
I'm not against a couple of banners anyway ...

We've covered this before, and i think it's quite fair to say if d decided to charge for use of this site, only a few members will remain.

i agree. but i don't think anyone would be against banners-and they can always be educational products being advertised?

d could just attach one of those 'Donate me' buttons trough PayPal, and the ones that CAN pay and are willing to pay could do it.

well there ya go, if no1 will contribute then its hardly a good idea to have this site only accessible to those who pay - which would be extremely few in my opinion - not when virtually every other forum in the world wide web is completely free, as it has to be.

I know, neither will i, and neither will a lot of people. So it's not really worth considering charging people for use of the site. If he ever needs money he'll just have to get more adverts on the site and if people don't like it they can send him money to get rid of the adverts.

I don't know, sometimes I get mad but only when there's a political discussion and the fascists in this forum takes their masks out.

And yes, I'm talking about vienna95
