1. Guest,
    We need good tech writers that are willing to help out here at ZL-OA. If you like taking photos of jobs as you perform the steps on your repairs, have historical ads/documents from old magazines, or any else you think belongs in the Technical Library than you might be able to help. Send a private message to Furchin, Mudrunner88, Chris, Jarney, Wuputt, or Markus56 and we can lead you in the right direction to get started.

    Hey Guys,

    Lately there hasn't been much action on the eBay program i'm signed with and it's starting to cost me money to operate zl-oa. As most of you know I have been struggling with other problems that are much more important. Plain and simply put, I will either have to give this up or start charging a small amount of membership fees if the eBay earnings do not support the zl-oa costs.

    I'm surprised it hasn't come to this before now and I think most of us will gladly help ZL-OA financially to see it continue. I propose $25.00 a year in membership fees and see how sound a footing that puts it on. :nike:

    That's what I would've suggested - try donations first? There's enough of us "active members" here that want this site to stay alive to keep it going I imagine with no problem. There's too much info and good resources here to let it slip away. Those of us that have been around these bikes for some time have seen site after site come and go. I have no idea what it takes to keep a website like this up and running but I'm sure we can take care of it. I'm in regardless. Can't thank ZLMark enough for all you're work anyway. Later.

    I'm in, I'd hate to think what all the info on here would've cost me if I'd had to pay a shop for it.

    I'm in, whether it's donations or a membership fee.
    Just give us all a recommended amount and preferred payment method.

    I'm sure that the donation direction is the way to go on this. If you charge a membership I believe you'll find a lot of people simply won't pay it to gain access to the wealth of information that is here. They will simply try to find it elsewhere. Mark, you know you can count on many of the members for support in keeping this site going. Without divulging the financial outlay that you have I think there needs to be some basic information in the amount(s) you need. Also some kind of reserve should be set up so as to cover future cash outlays for the sole purpose and use of keeping the site running. Just my 2 cents, or is it dollars this time????

    Ditto on this Mark!!!

    Put the calculator and a time-line to work on this problem. I'm confident as Hell that we'll solve this problem pronto....Don't let this thing drag on....let's get the ****ed thing solved for you. I'd bet that we're not talking a fortune here, just a reasonable amount from all benefiting parties. :headbang:
