To the members of the Vintage Forum - as you navigate about the site, you may see a banner like this:
This message from Ernie explains why it's there:
Dear Watchuseek Members,
First, we would like to thank you for your continued patronage of Watchuseek. We are gratified by the number of contributors who choose to visit our site. Second, that number is ever increasing. With the massive increases in volume comes the need for more computer hardware and software. Sponsorships and advertising revenue help offset some of these costs, but not all of them.
Repeatedly, members have asked about contributing to the upkeep of the site. Therefore we have decided to provide a venue for that to happen.
Clicking on the Banner, will take you to Paypal where you are welcome to contribute any amount you are comfortable with. Donations will be used to pay for hardware, software and the support that keeps the Watchuseek Forum running and make it possible to keep up with the increasing membership.
We appreciate all your contributions. It is the efforts of our membership that, in terms of quality and number of visitors, make WUS the best and #1 watch forum on the net. Thanks in advance from Ernie Romers and the WUS Moderator Team for making this a great place to visit.
If you find it within your means to make a contribution, I would encourage you to do so. The Vintage Forum does not have a sponsor, and many of the companies we discuss here are historic and no longer in business.
Any contribution will go solely to the upkeep and maintenance of the Forum, and help us keep on helping you.
