Re: The reality is that the e-group needs your help

Not sure about restricting access to the For Sale forum...

I've bought and sold loads of stuff over the years and would be very happy to donate modestly for that privilege, but quite a few of the sales and purchases have been from/to new-ish members here and we might be cutting off our noses to save our faces by reducing the number of potential purchasers.

It's a fine forum, from which I've benefited in all sorts of ways over many years, and one of the advantages has been its inclusivity combined with sensible & active moderation. There are people on here with massive experience in every branch of photography, and I don't think we should inhibit anyone from wanting to participate in that.

Why not see how income goes over the first year, and surely there wouldn't be an issue with repeating the call for donations occasionally as needed (like every 6 months - whyever not???). I can't see that would be onerous or thought intrusive.
