    Donations Required

    Five and a half years ago we took on the responsibility of keeping this site up with the main priority of keeping the 1.5 million posts online, stopping the forum from imploding in a spate of internal arguments between factions while keeping the original free speech ethos of the site.

    Two out of three ain't bad...

    Anyhoo in that time we've never had to put an appeal out for donations before while remaining ad free.

    For various reasons we now find ourselves in a bit of a hole financially - an $800 hole to be precise but should hopefully be a one off situation.

    I appreciate that although many of the Roth Army people don't post any more for various reasons not least the inactivity of the band, new forms of social media and so on, to a greater or lesser degree if you are like me you take some comfort in this place still being here and pop in from time to time to catch up with internet friends or to read old threads from back in the day.

    I'll match any payment people make so really all we need is $400 of donations surely it's worth that just for the nostalgia if nothing else?

    You can donate using the donate link at the top or by clicking HERE!


    I'll keep this thread open so I can thank people that step up, if you wish to remain anonymous that of course is cool too.

    Cheers!

    Thank you muchly to the guys who donated last night, we are already 1/4 of the way there.

    Over 30 people have already viewed this thread, if half of you could give $20 then that would sort things out. Thanks in advance.

    You weren't logged in when you clicked on donate so it wasn't immediately obvious who the donation was from and then I saw your name and remembered it from Dave on the radio...

    I added the badge last night, it must be so unspectacular you never noticed - it's that little red and grey thing.

    You should also now be able to access the super secret donors forum...

    Thanks to VHscraps.

    The donations have slowed in the last couple of weeks, we still have a $130 to go on the target so any help much appreciated.

    Yes as things stand it does. I'm sure if you wanted to donate a different way we can set it up if you let us know how. We never did get to the target and it's still outstanding.

    Many thanks to IgoSplut for stepping up to help the site with a big donation.

    We are now officially out of red alert and into amber, thanks guys.

    I would say we have cut some good deals over the years that mean to keep the site going is a fraction of what some similar sites cost and we're doing it without annoying advert popups.

    At this point it's expensive for one or two people to pay for all by themselves but if every so often people with a history here or who continue to post or read the stuff could send modest amounts we will be fine.

    With the band being inactive, Roth being quiet musically and internet forums being replaced a bit by new social media I was seriously concerned about whether we could keep doing this.

    Thanks for all your help it's been encouraging. I think the ideal way to fund this site would be for 200 people to donate a beer worth of donation each year but at the moment we have second best which is a dozen of us being super cool which I guess works too.
