It is now costing well over Â£100 per month to keep Plane-Mad up and running. This money comes out of my own pocket and is only partially offset by advertising income (which has significantly reduced over the past 12-18 months). In the circumstances, unless anyone fancies sharing the burden by making a modest donation towards the upkeep of the site, I will have to seriously consider shutting it down early in the New Year.
Over to you!
you have done well to keep the site running for the last couple of years and it would be a shame to lose the site now surely we can get enough mebers to chip in a fiver a month to kept going

just to add to my previous post , its not right that you should have to bear the cost of keeping the site running from your own pocket its our site and if we care about keeping it going we should all shoulder the cost
no, we can not miss a beautiful site like Plane-mad and an important photo archive. We must do everything to keep the site running. We can establish an annual subscription (possibly not excessive) that everyone can pay and that can cover the expenses for the maintenance. Let's see what are the developments of this suggestion.
Happy new year to everyone.
