Hi all,
As you know, this forum is free and will remain so.
Hosting and domain costs are borne by myself in the in the interests of expanding our knowledge of AK bayonets and related.
I feel we have a remarkable amount of info gathered here, even though this is a limited and small field of interest.
The hosting costs are not great. Probably about $80-100 a year. I have covered them completely for the past few years. But on a South African salary, they do hurt just a little. Hosting invoice is due for renewal, and that just led to this post.
I am not pleading for contributions. We are ok. But wanted to ask if anyone would like to donate $5 or $10 or whatever, it would be greatly appreciated and can be done by visiting http://www.paypal.me/japaneseswords

Again, donations are not compulsory and won't ever be. Just very much appreciated if anyone would like to.

Thanks all,

Brian

Just a gentle nudge a year later. Just paid out around $100, which is a lot for a South African.
I'm ok with funding this..the although we are not the most active forum out there, there is only so much new info that can be posted and I think we have accumulated more than anywhere out there. But if anyone wants to help with 10 or 20 bucks or whatever, it is always greatly appreciated. But voluntary of course.

It would be nice if ALL the members would kick in a little. It would work out to about a dollar each per year. At least those of us that visit the site on a regular basis should to help cover the costs. Brian created this Forum and pays for it out of his pocket. Why should he have to pay for our enjoyment? Maybe he should be rewarded, not penalized!

Had one or 2 more guys contributing a few bucks. I don't want to name names (most prefer not) but want to thank those of you who did. It is greatly appreciated and really does help.

Wishing everyone out there a wonderful Festive Season and a smooth 2021. Stay safe!
