For me, having a place where I can get technical information and advice without having to go through all the clutter and deal with the trolls that occur on other sites is definitely worth a couple bucks.

Props to Spittle, VDub, and Toklas for volunteering to keep this raggle tag band of paintball dinosaurs afloat.

They didn't volunteer, we all got together, tied them to a tree, poured honey on them and then threatened them w/ a big box of fire ants Twisted Evil

I think the system they have in place is fine now. I wouldnt want to see a big ebay logo on the site. And I think alot of the people here dont buy more then 3 items a year on ebay, max.

Im an ICDO supporter and encourage others to donate a buck or two

Its not a big ebay ad = you might want to look before you make a judgment!
How it works is on the top of the bst there will be a little add to ebay showing a few ICD products are for sale at that moment. Thats it -you click on it and it doesn't matter if you buy, icd parts diapers or furniture on eBay, the sight gets a percentage of any sale. Even if you just look it counts too but not in the same way. The other sites make enough money to not just keep the sight up but to have little give always etc.

Don, I talked to several site admins that had the Ebay banner and their consensus was that the income didn't really offset the cost of having to keep track of what Ebay owed them, especially with a smaller forum such as ours. Personally, I would rather pay the hosting fees out of my pocket than add something that is going to be work to a place I hang out in for relaxation. Just my $0.00002 That, plus having supporters gives everyone a sense of ownership and ability to interject their views and ideas into the feel of the place. I believe that ICDO is a much more laid back forum since the change, and more vibrant. Besides being mostly self policing.

Do what you want but small, self reliant etc describes the site it works so well on - NO Member money required! I have Randy's email (site owner) if you want it. He is really pleased with the ebay program.
