    That is exactly what has happened. It occurs often. Once someone send me a note indicating the mistake I correct it immediately. It is not a big deal.

    True but on occasion people have received so much value from the site they offer to give more than 20 bucks. The Donate button allows that.


    Thank you to all that support DIYC. The site would be nothing without the contributing members, both intellectually and monetarily.
    Thanks,
    Brian, your friendly site Admin.

    I've been on this site for 9 years and have been a supporting member since the start. The site has been invaluble to this hobby .
    The help and information of the members is great. I've looked at other sites but the response and use of this forum is one of the best.
    I do see a lot of confusion when people are asked about membership. Maybe we could put a BIG become a member button at the top of the page?
    You kinda have to look for the supporting membership button.

    I've been a supporting member since joining the hobby. The only time the membership lapsed is because there was no reminder/nag that the subscription was ending. I'm hoping there's an automated reminder this year. The site, the forums, the community have all been so helpful in growing the hobby.

    You are not alone in that. However, there are precious few of us that are supporting members and if the choice is adds or no site, I vote adds.

    Have'nt seen an Ad yet, however I use "Adblock Plus" on my browser, also a supporting member. Currently shows it is blocking 3 ads.

    I see the ads, but they are just at the top of the page. I don't find them obtrusive at all. I'm fine with it being used to support the site.

    The adds up near the banner aren't that bad. If they will help keep the site up and running, go for it. When they start showing up down in the threads (such as Facebook and others), then it will be time to re-evaluate. (Personal Opinion)
