    After almost a year, I decided that I would join the team. this last year I have learned a ton from everyone and made a few new friends in the process so I thought it was only appropriate that I support the site since I have done everything from trade to buy gear and guitars here as well as be involved in projects with some other members.So I just bought a silver membership and am looking forward to a lot more fun in the 2018 year.

    I was banned from the Fender Discussion Page (ages ago) when I brought up the question of where exactly do the funds go......I mean, at the time there was some crazy amount of members, not sure how many now, but let's just say it was well into the digits.......and if we all gave a buck a month, somebody is living the American Dream to it's fullest. No reply or explanation....just see ya lol

    for example, there's 54000+ members here. Granted, many stagnate, old and forgotten I'm sure, but a buck a month is 54,000 x 12...........648,000/year.

    Can't remember the last time I went into a business and felt the need to ask where the money I spent went..

    This is how I see it. When I run my side business building decks or I do some guitar work for someone, I am providing a service (not just a product) that I get paid for. The creators of this site are doing the same thing by providing both a product and service by giving us a site that we don't NEED to pay to be in and maintaining it. So if they get paid from the fees that I chose to pay then that's capitalism; just like when I get paid to build, or repair/mod something that someone else cannot. Me joining is a way to show some appreciation to the creators of this site for doing something I can't and giving me a place to learn and show off some of my work. The site is still free to join for those that either can't afford it or don't feel the same as I do but that is their viewpoint and this is mine.

    I prefer to think of it as more along the lines of paying the admins for creating/managing the space, buying the domain and bandwidth, making sure it all runs as smoothly as possible with as few down times as possible etc. Not telling anyone how to value a hard earned dollar but my guess is no one's getting rich and even if they were they've worked for it. You may not value that, but I do.
