    Default Think someone's having a dig?

    Just got this email;

    Greetings old VxON members!

    We are still here after 13 Years, and in that time have amassed over 1.8 Million posts spread over 169 Thousand Threads. Just recently, we upgraded to the new version 4 VBulletin board, & yesterday moved to a new super fast server. This is brought to you at no cost what so ever, and unlike other forums we don't force you to join a club to get access (or lock you out of important areas unless you are a club member)

    The VxON (formally CavWeb) forums were founded on the principles that all information should be available for free, and that continues to this day.

    Best Regards
    The VxON Team:
    Wonder who they're on about?!

    JK

    It could be aimed at any forum(s) that have a paid membership scheme, of which there are many. Don't see it as being aimed at us specifically, if that's what you were meaning.

    We chose to go with a membership scheme to move the club forward and have the funds required to buy equipment, run servers etc., and for their money members get some goodies and extra benefits. Other forums, including VxOn, have Google AdSense ads all over the pages that gain them revenue to cover their costs. Not a route we wanted to go, but each to their own, and we don't think our members would want to see that on here either.

    Having ran my own games servers & web servers, I know how expensive hosting can be especially on busy sites like this one so I gladly hand over my £15 to contribute to the club that I get so much out of. This club has saved me way more than £15 which I would have spent on getting things done on my Vectra had this site not existed.

    money well spent imo

    I know certain members on here dont like the £15 and have defected to another forum, but when something good is going on they come running back. £15 today is nothing really its not even 3 packs of fags I think as I gave up 8 years ago.
    I back this Forum 100%

    Quite agree, £15 over a year is 28p a week which really break the bank (NOT)
