Help support the running of NWB

Filed Under : Site News

Posted By : mr.nwb | Comments : 23

We've recently moved to a new, more expensive server...

A couple of weeks back I moved the site to a bigger server to help cope with the demands of the site. Coupled with the vat increase this has meant a serious hike in the monthly costs.

I've been determined to keep nwb free for everyone to use from the outset, and not exclude anyone from using the site. A subscription model might scare off potential community members, and isnt something I want to move towards at the moment.

To help with the running, all I ask is that you use the 'quick shopping search' facility on the right hand side of the comm blog.

1) click the merchants/stores you want
2) enter a search e.g 'chas and dave dvd'
3) click go

Nwb gets a small % commission of anything you buy. (bit like cashback)

Many thanks for your continued support.

@kingpin - You might need to "allow popups" on your browser

wow Frozen Broadcast ... i thought no one was listening.

# Posted by mr.nwb - 26/03/2011, 15:30 (GMT)

@ Frozen - Nice idea, but I think i need a costly gambling/raffle license to do something like that.
