Supporting The Lemon Fool - Donations (versus Adverts)

The Lemon Fool is, and will remain, free to use. However, there are costs and time involved in running the site. These costs are met by a combination of adverts and donations. You can make donations at any time by clicking on the Donations button at the top or clicking here app.php/donate

If you donate £20 or more, we treat that as a Voluntary Annual Subscription. In return you will no longer see site adverts for a period of 12 months. We introduced this in July 2017, so those of you who subscribed then have had 14 months ad-free. You may have noticed ads reappearing in the last few days. We do hope that you choose to renew your Voluntary Subscription by donating again.

Many thanks to all of you who support The Lemon Fool in this way.

Clariman and Stooz

Many thanks to those of you who have donated. One additional benefit that I forgot to mention, is that those who donate £20 or more also get an increased Private Message mailbox capacity of 100 messages - in addition to the removal of Ads.

Thanks

Crikey, the combined knowledge of the posters in this community combined with the unbiased information and advice they give makes this £20 an infinitesimal sum compared to the massive potential benefits. Talk about value for money!

I thought having multiple accounts/aliases was frowned upon Clariman/Stooze?

You have to donate £20,000 before you qualify for the multiple accounts option :) ;)

Welcome to the forum. As explained in the first post in this thread, donations are voluntary, but very welcome too! Just in case you want to remove ads, the donation amount to make would be £20 (20GBP)
