Methinks it's to stay in the spirit of contributing in the member's own terms, new and old alike. Like budman wrote, BARF's not in need, only in want for wanting to continue supporting the world of motorcycling.

Most members would be surprised just how far involved BARF has been. New and old alike.

That's my point precisely.

How would one know, if not told? How can the 'community' help to become better, if we as a community don't know how, or why to help BARF? More importantly, why would we help BARF, with donations to sell things when we can get it for free on CL?

That's it in a nutshell. If barf gave everyone a consise understanding of what Barf does for the community, and how we all can help with the importance on why we should, it will change the structure of the community.

I'm happy to help because I have watched BARF in action for years (from afar). But if you want all these kids to help, or help more, you have to tell them flat out why.

Why you want more money from me

Seriously though, I think it is only fair that people should donate a percentage of any sale they make. I know, could sell for free on CL but how many posts have we had where people are ranting about CL flakes?? Generally speaking BARFers aren't flakes. Generally speaking that is

Yo Bud, I think you should charge them PostWhores a penny a post

That's a great idea BudMan and an appropriate reminder that nothing is free EXCEPT FOR BARF! Let's keep it the going as the best online motorcyclist community.

I'm in!

Here is some barf history from wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ar...a_Riders_Forum

I have taken what Arnoha started and added to the current years.. had too since Siggy won an FP Championship..

Once I complete I will ask his permission to use his stuff..which is top notch. Really a great effort and I owe him some shirts.

Funding those who fund local is awesome, good on you budman. I know you have a "Donate" link at the tippy top of every page, but everyone instinctively scrolls past that immediately to look at the threads. Over on Calguns they have a link right with the little "welcome/you last visited/private messages" box and you always see it. It's a very minor ergonomic difference, but the difference in who sees it is huge. People are lazy, have short attention spans, and become discouraged incredibly easy, and you've got to make it as easy as possible to catch them in that split-second where they're happy to donate before something shiny goes by.

BARF is the only website that I have ever been that has very little annoying ads, less restriction on classifieds yet completely free. I hope everyone can pitch in and keep this going.
Budman.. thanks for growing BARF as big as it is. I'll pitch in a bit more..

is there a specific page to make this donation. Is BARF a 501 c3? Just curious about the tax benefits for the BARF communities. Thanks JR

503 is a charity I believe..and we are not. The amount of paperwork to do that was more than my wife was willing to tackle. I know I have stretched her patience with barf, she does appreciate some of the kind words you guys share when donating.

She likes seeing the freeway notifications to and knowing that barf helped make that happen.

There is no specific page for "this" donation.

Same donate button.
