However why not invite people to set up a standing order? A couple of years ago I began to feel awkward about reading the site every day and using its many resources whilst being conscious that it is run by volunteers and on the basis of good will.
I'm not seeking a pat on the head but I set up a standing order whereby a small and modest amount is paid to MusicWeb each month. This arrangement hasn't cast me into penury and in fact I'm hardly conscious of it. And in terms of 'value for money' I rate it as one of the best 'investments' I've made in my life. A subscription to one of the few remaining record magazines would cost more and all it provides is regular doses of facile journalism and twenty times less pleasure and information than what is provided by MusicWeb.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
