Speaking of support, I have a request from all of you folks out there.

I chatted with our esteemed administrator a few days ago and asked some technical questions about this website and I was intrigued as to what it all entails.

Not going into all the details, but it costs Ahmed a pretty penny each month to keep this site going and that made me wonder why some of you, are not upper deck members? Gee, it costs so little to get so much and by the looks of it, some folks are on this site quite a bit and IMHO taking advantage of the 'free' opinions, suggestions, requests and so on. SO, I recommend that you guests out there climb on board, spend a couple of bucks to support the site and feel good in the whole process!

Hi All,

Thank you very much to all of you who have signed up in the past couple of days, and to Tom for opening this thread, it's a very nice gesture Tom - thanks!

It's true, running airlinercafe costs quite a bit every month in hosting fees, and no, before you ask, you can't run a site like this on one of those $ 6.95/month hosting plans. We use up a lot of resources not only in bandwith, but database and cpu power as well, and it's all needed to keep the site running fast and smooth.

I've been pretty much paying for most of the costs because of my love for the hobby, it's purely a labor of love, but as you can see, on an annual basis it can add up to be quite a bit of money. We don't have too many sponsors and the Google for some reason don't generate any substantial amount of money, I guess people have simply come to ignore them after a while. That's why we need new members and for people to upgrade their accounts. A lot of people have signed up for the Upper Deck membership plan but have failed to re-new on an annual basis. If you are one of those people, please renew your subscription at http://www.airlinercafe.com/page=upgrade . Please renew as soon as you can, every bit helps.

I've been getting a few complaints lately because of the pop-up ads, so I have turned them off for now, hoping that more of you will sign up for the Upper Deck Membership to make up for the loss of revenue from the pop-ups. I know they are annoying and intrusive, but they bring in almost half the revenue from all the banner advertising. But, like I said, I have turned them off for now, so please sign up.

P.S. There is one pop-up coming from the member galleries, I haven't been able to turn it off yet, still working on it.

Regards,
ahmed |

Hi,
I just upgraded to Upper Deck in order to support the site. But, could it be an idea
to also have an paypal donation button on the front as well ? In these times where many
don't have the same amount of $'s to spend on the hobby, they might give $5.00 or $10.00
but don't want to/can afford the over $30.00 an upgrade cost.

Happy modelling,

Ruben

WOW! This is fantastic! Many thanks to all of you carrying on this! Ahmed, it is my pleasure man. Your dedication to this is well founded and much appreciated!

Ruben, could you e-mail me at Airmodeler at cox dot net? I have a couple of questions for you! Love the new scheme!

I tend to ignore how much I spend on the hobby as it is also somewhat a business cost to me. But to donate is much better than nothing, and Ruben has a great idea. But to donate thirty bucks IMHO is not really that much when you think about it. Most of those charities, here in the states, state that it's less than a cup of coffee per day, or they state that you really ought to support this and that and the other. Well, I believe that thirty bucks a YEAR is a lot better than thirty bucks a month and in the long run, you really get a lot more bang for your buck. Besides, most of us are professionals or retired and we may have a little "mad" money to throw at something that really pays all of us in return in a BIG way.

Tom

PS Ahmed, thanks for turning the pop ups off! I love it man! Even temporary is better than permanent, and besides, I understand!

Models, try 'em..........

Hi Guys,
Thanks for your support! When you click the Subscribe button, it will take you to the page to sign up through PayPal. At the top, select your payment method. I don't know why PayPal is not the default option, it should be. Please see image below:

This is the one site I check every day. I love it. I am just going to check to make sure my membersip has been upgraded. The donation idea is a great one, and another one would be to offer more than one years membership in one hit.

Glad that all of you are in support! One thing I did notice is that the majority that have joined are outside the US! C'mon US! The recession is not that bad and besides as much time as some of you comment and visit, you WILL get your money's worth!

This is great! Thanks guys! I for one appreciate your support.

Being in Vegas, and yes, I do bet occasionally, I'm willing to wager that everyone spends at least ten times the membership amount related to this hobby per year. It adds up my friends! So those that look at this and think, yea, I'll get to it, can afford the 35 bucks a year.

I would like to see this topic at the top of the list of the forums so that those that visit once in a while, will see this and say, heck yea, I’ll do it.

Oh, just in case anyone is thinking why am I pushing this issue? There is absolutely nothing that I am gaining from this campaign. I just want to support this wonderful site and help Ahmed offset the monthly fees for its operation. Besides, if it were not for Ahmed, this site would be just a vivid dream!

Thanks

Tom

I'm a upperdeck member right from the beginning, and never regret that I did so. And I will continue to do so, this site is absolutely the best for Airliner freaks. Information nowhere else to find, but Airlinercafe has it all.
Please continue this site, so I will be able to improve my skills .

Have fun modeling! Bert

Thank you very much for all your support and generous donations everyone. We're now at 27 Upper Deck members. We need 50 members subscribed and renewing annually to cover our hosting costs for the year. Anything over that will go towards site improvements and enhancements.

Well we need more advertising!

Maybe someone know the "Social Netwerk for Modellers" Scalemates. There is also a Group with the Cafe, Kuya and I already in there Cafe @ Scalemates.

What's about Facebook? Airlinecafe at Facebook is maybe a good Chance to get more people here.

Maybe someone have other Ideas.

No please no advertisement!!!
I know I was at fault as well for not upgrading to upper deck once my last membership expired but
I am up to date now.
No advertisement and funky pop ups please!!!!
Now, do the math, there are 1571 register user/members on the site.
Ahmed said he need 50 members to update to Upper class, not even 5% right.

$35 is the price of you average 1/144 scale model, once a year!!!!

And, the guys with the most posts on the site are not even upper deck?
What is up with that?

I am just saying...

Sleepless in Portland.............

Okay Tom "KLAS", I have tossed and turned every night since your posting on 1/14/2012...I began to think of how I would feel when placing an add for items I'm selling (some soon)....Would I ever be accepted for the nice guy I am? What if I wanted to post more photos of my models?

Oh the shame....The guilt trip you placed on this "Old Goat" Tom, was too much....

I just up-graded a few moments ago. So now I can get a good nights sleep!

I am so glad you can sleep in peace now Cable! I was loosing sleep over the fact you were unable to get a few zzzzz's at night! Whew! See? That wasn't so painful huh!

In reference to advertisements MC84, I thought the same as Walter, and I am glad you clarified your intention!! When I converse via e-mail or by phone I ask folks have you heard or seen Airliner Cafe, and when they say NO, I suggest they check it out. That's all it takes. I for one hang with most airliner enthusiasts and that little 'plug', can help the cause.

I still see a lot of guests! It's amazing they out number us members. Gee, come on. It take a couple of minutes and is painless!

@Tom,
Sometime are small "language barriers" but all is cleared now

My next Step will be to distribute Airlinercafe Business Cards at Exhibition, where I exhibit at my Stand. I know that only a few will may register here but maybe helps it.

Just upgraded my membership again (I let it lapse a while ago).

I'm on a few other airliner modelling-related forums but, IMHO, none compare with Airlinercafe when it comes to sharing information and advice.

I haven't touched a kit in ages (3 years maybe) but, having started to sell a load of my "stock', I'm getting the urge to start fondling some plastic again!

I am glad you are getting the itch again Roy! Please PM me as I may want some of your wears?????????

Hello all,

It has been brought to my attention that I may have criticized or ostracized a certain site, namely AMD.

Airliner Modelling Digest was the first site I joined many years ago and have met many people that I still communicate with. It is an excellent site and I would like to extend my sincere apology to any of you that may have interpreted my comment as offensive or demeaning. That was NOT my intention, but a joke, and a very poor one at that.

I have written a personal apology to the individual that communicated this subject and I feel that he was within his rights to do so and I want to publicly state that it will never happen again and I would also like to say, that I will commit my comments to the subject at hand, namely, airline modeling.

Please refrain your comments about this as it is a detraction to the overall theme of this and other airliner sites and subjects, I would like to bring this particular issue to a final close. Thank you all.

Now back to the task at hand, get more folks to become upper deck members!

Tom

I maybe missing something here. I have been a member since 2007 and don't remember ever seeing anything about membership fees and was wondering how this superlative site was financed. If I ever made a donation towards its operation, I don't remember (old timer's disease).

I am returning to the site after a long hiatus and upon reading this topic, I immediately made up for my past ignorance and paid for membership plus made a donation. However, I am still unable to find a reference on the homepage to membership categories and the payment of fees. May I humbly suggest that such a reference be included and brought to the attention of all users so that us dunderheads are reminded that this site doesn't run on fresh air alone.

Boeing Bob.

Great idea Marco! This is an excellent way to let people know that we are hear!

A few years ago I suggested T-shirts for the AI show when I was on AMD and it was really cool to hook up with folks that were there by easily identifying each other with our bright yellow shirts! Perhaps we should do the same one day here?

Welcome back Boeing Bob! Good to have you back! I am sure Ahmed will address your concerns about making the membership issues easier.

Keep up the great support everybody.

Hello Everyone- I tried to post a message before but got bumped off line. Still trying to figure out how this works...
Been browsing the site for some time, one of those guests mentioned above. Time to connect. I was amazed right off: Wow, there's a whole, worldwide community of Airliner Freaks like me! Built all manner of kits as a kid/teenager. After a 35 or so year hiatus wandered into a hobby shop and came upon a Minicraft 737 in Continental markings. This might be fun, I thought. Ten years later, and there's tools, books, a display case full of completed models, a closet shelf full of kits in waiting, and I Finally got my hands on a couple of Airfix DC9s.
I'm looking forward to connecting with other airliner modellers.
