Why not take a vote to see if the majority of the members wouldn't mind having some advertisements on the site so JG can make some money, and maybe do some Jeep gear giveaways?

I know some of you have this idea that advertisements are the devil, and would ruin the site (give me a break), but I think its a waste. With so much traffic, why not make some cash for the community? Could help pay the bills too.


Expected responses:

Re: Advertisements...

Id be fine with ads. I know that there is a huge disparity between support and cost of running a website.

Re: Advertisements...

Have you considered maybe shrinking the "Lifetime Membership" down from the 10 year term? While $125 is an excellent amount to contribute...that's once every 10 years. That's quite a generous amount of lost income potentiality compared to if it was maybe like a 3-5 year lifespan. Even so, hopefully ads can be beneficial to the site but there's a certain line between beneficial advertising and just plain invasive.

Another idea could be to try to make being a paying subscriber that much more appealing. It would require significantly less features available to the free user. Maybe no avatar pictures and signature pics could be a start.

True, no doubt about it.

Note: I know not being a subscriber and talking about ways to help the site thrive since there's a small ratio of Free Members:Contributing Members can seem hypocritical but I'm just trying to help

The fact that "lifetime" currently describes 10 years is laughable already.

That's like, a gerbil's lifetime.

I know, When I first joined the site I thought it would something ridiculously long but then I saw it was 10 years so I like "Well, that's not too accurate ".

Maybe they could shrink the current lifespan and maybe change the name to something else.

Re: Advertisements...

Well fellas it's very far and few between who will actually pay and be here for a "Lifetime" aka 10 years! So I think that the Lifetime shall stay for now

Not everything does, it depends on your setup I guess as well as the type of ads. I'm not too big of a fan of JF's website layout site as it seems it's a bit clustered, obtrusive and sometimes disorienting
