This site has really grown since I first joined it. It's the first message board that I have ever joined and don't regret it. Because of the growth, Ian has had to invest in new servers a couple of times bringing up the cost of running the site and keeping it available to you and I. This has NOT been offset by advertising revenue, which is in fact down. He has a sticky thread asking for donations of $18 per year. But sometimes sticky threads are not viewed as much as threads on the main forum. The $18 per year amounts to: 5 cents a day 35 cents a week $1.50 per month. If you feel that coming here and value that you receive is worth 5 cents a day, then maybe you should consider the one time per year donation of $18. Here is where you donate: New England Patriots Forums - PatsFans.com Patriots Fan Messageboard And BTW, in addition to the new server, Ian has added a really good arcade. You should check that out and get involved in some of the tourneys. Hopefully enough of you will consider Patsfans to be worth 5 cents a day and will step up and help Ian out.
