    Top idea, these people who donate can them have a special banner/title like "Forum Supporter" this is done by other forums, people can use PayPal to set up a monthly amount...

    Another idea is to make a Sponsors area where only sponsors can post, this works well on other forums. This way Sponsors have a specific area where to market their goods.

    Here's an idea out of leftfield:

    There's plenty of established & start up stick brands on here. Why don't you get one to sponsor the forum each month by way of a raffle?

    For example, Craggsy gives you a Beikou stick. Members pay a £1 raffle entry to win it. You're more than likely to get £40 in entries and in return for his outlay, Craggsy gets four weeks of extra attention on his brand. And maybe a couple of brand-specific threads/features that month.
    It's an odd idea, but I think could work, as once established, brands would want to be the focus for a few weeks.

    And yes, I appreciate the umpires, GKs & coaches will be less motivated by this than the stick geeks like me, but then is anyone really going to turn down a £100 stick for £40? You could prob still flip it for profit if you didn't want it!!

    At least then those people who are less inclined to donate just for the good of the forum have the prospect of winning a stick as a carrot for motivation.

    I think enough of us use this site enough for info / contacts etc that if there was a small charge we wouldn't grumble but it may put off new members etc. Maybe unlimited posts / messages etc for paying members and a cap on "free" members may work ? But that's all I.t. Stuff that I don't understand !!!

    Maybe a fines system for sarcasm could raise a bit of cash? :D

    Think how boring the Umpiring Corner would be if all we had was the officially endorsed FIH line on things...

    I wonder if big Vlad would slip us some cash. He has a few spare roubles.

    I'm relatively new to the site but love browsing through the forums in my spare time and my main points have already been made so all I really have to say is that i would gladly pay to keep the site running weather it ends up being merch or a premium or donations its a great site that deserves to keep going
