Nice idea, a hall of fame. (I will make the list one day when the guilt overwhelms me for using this website for free ) I'm just getting used to the Ads for now....

I think you could probably add your name to that list too.

How about contributor points for donators, we are contribution to HOL too by donating aren't we?

Could you register this as a charity so you get our income tax back too?

How about a bronze thumb for allowing ad's, a silver thumb for those who have donated and a gold thumb for those who have done both? Or is that elitist , (no more than just the gold thumb I'd say)

As for a goal, I was thinking more along the lines of if there was any new hardware you were thinking of getting to improve the EAB, we could set up a fund raising target.

Sorry if you think I'm trying to tell you how to run this, it's not my intention I'm just trying to support your long term plan for this great world of Amiga you've created.

Ignore all of the above if you like, I'm probably over thinking things....

Hum, probably
Let's first see how how it perform in time
I hope we don't need hardware soon, the latest hard-drive and memory I bought perform well
Anyway, something to show that you are a recent donator is a cool idea.

I moved the banner of forum listing before the navigation bar.
I could not have it under because of the drop-down menu "community" or "quick link" which came over the ad (it's not allowed by adsense policy).
Moreover I feel it less intrusive like this

Without the hardware server (arround 2000€ two times),
it cost me 120€ each month for secured space in datacenter (redundant power, redundant air conditioning, redundant backbone access).

It's a pleasure to join the supportes Club. Hope it will bring at least some money.
Btw do you get paid per view or do some actions on the banners help to generate a little bit extra?

When you say "action" do you mean mouse on banner? Or do you mean buy the product on advert?
