I know it does, Servers aren't cheap, neither is webspace.

That's what these ads are for, no?

Most of the time these ads are worth nothing unless people actually click on them. Even then it's a very very small source of revenue for the site.

In my opinion, vendors should have to pay to advertise/sell their stuff on a forum. The unfortunate part of that is knowing where to draw the line with regards to simple posting of information. Some sites just don't allow vendors to post at all unless they are a sponsor because they often go behind the scenes and sell/advertise through PM.

I just hope it doesn't drive away the "little guy" (like ModShack).

Makes sense, but I've never seen them advertise on here really...the only advertising I see really is in everyones sig's

Just seemed weird to me, the site went what, a little over 2 years without making vendors do this? I guess the economy is just catching up to the admin?

Hi folks. You can tell official site sponsors by their username being in a green color. Any vendor without a green colored username is not a site sponsor.

Thats still a hassle to find them. One would have to visually look through all the users. If you ate looking to say find one to sponsor a GB, it would be easier to have a list sitting somewhere.

Is the sponsorship list completely up to date? There are a few vendors who still don't have green names that you would think would be first in line to sign up (APR, GIAC, etc.).
