Question Where are all the contributing members?

Gidday Folks

While I am a real newbie here, having only joined the site on the first of January 2012, I quickly realised that I had already got more than $15 worth of help and info from this site and its members.

So I signed up as a contributing member on the fifteenth of January 2012.

While I try to give back to other members of this site as best I am able, however, this does nothing whatsoever to help the site owners to keep the site running.

I know that there are probably some members of this forum for whom $15 is more than they can easily rake up; BUT I would also suggest that there are not very many in this unfortunate situation ...

Also, there are almost certainly members here who get nothing from the site or other members. That's OK too. I certainly do not think that they should reach into their pockets if this is, in fact, the case. BUT I also suggest that this is not the common experience of people who actively participate here.

So that leaves the rest of us ...
Of whom, there are a whole NINE who are currently contributing members.

I find this quite difficult to understand ...

So, please consider the above, and think about the supportive and helpful community here who will evaporate if this site should fold.

SO,

You can sign up as a contributing member here:

{BTW, I am in no way whatsoever associated with any person
with any kind of involvement with the provision of this site
or its associated interests}

Yes the stickers are great
So why not grab 1 or maybe 2
And trust me, once you've got them on your Subi, you'll wonder what you ever did without them

Regards
Mr Turbo

OK. OK.

I have caved in to your outrageous blackmail ... , and ordered a little stick and a large oval.

And where are they? Pray tell?

I completed the payment at least 7 minutes ago, but I have not yet received them!! .

Stickers ordered, I guess the Liberty ones look close enough, maybe try to add a wheel carrier & some spoilers on the back lol.

Me too
When my modem crapped itself a few months ago, I was having withdrawal symptoms and was going crazy for those few days as I was unable to get my ORS fix

I'm almost the same
The only time I'm logged off is when I'm at work & only because I don't have access to a computer unfortunately

But seriously, the amount of knowledge & friends I've found & made here, on ORS has been amazing
Not to mention all the money I've been able to save, by being able to do the many things / mods etc, to my Forry that I never thought I'd be able to do

About the only other thing I can say is ORS

Regards
Mr Turbo
