    Sorry, I haven't been here long enough to figure out who Chris is? How much does it cost?
    1. Chris is the dude who setup the forum, pays for the advertising and pays for the bandwidth. He's probably one (all?) of the admins too (although he has a dedicated 'Chris' account that's really just used for big posts/impact).
    2. The cost is private unless he chooses to reveal it but like... do a web search for hosting costs. Mine is about $15 a month and nobody uses it. Chris would need a LOT more storage and also bandwidth. I'd be thinking at least $50-$100 a month + whatever he chooses to pay Google et al. for advertising the site. On too of this, vBulletin (the CMS he uses) has a pricetag. Perceivably a few hundred each month for something that's 100% free to us.
    3. The above doesn't cost in hours worked upgrading/configuring the server (which can be a real b*tch once your database is 10 years old with millions of entries). It also doesn't factor in time spent deleting spam so that the forum's readable.

    I'm sure Chris doesn't need my support but IMO show some respect. Somewhere in his mind I'm sure he's wondered whether he should bother with this site at all. Forums are collapsing all over the web with things like Reddit and Facebook taking over. I'm pleased that Chris has kept running this forum because it has become an institution for many Roosters fans... one that's definitely worth supporting rather than talking absolute shyte about!!!

      Problem is, when someone doesn't agree with you on here, you get attacked.

          Or King Salvo who has only been online maybe once since the GF and posts 10 times a day after we lose.

            All the Robbo baggers have been very quiet since the grand final.
            King Salvo has totaled his rolls royce.

                it would be a lot more attractive if the loser trolls with nothing better to do who are banned don’t keep coming back with new names and hijacking the place.

                    Except the odd battle with spam.
