    Additional expenses for me are
    • donations or payment for modifications
    • Site decals
    • Additional software

    And with income come income tax, depending where you live.

    Yup!! Thanks.

    Plus it gives them a warm and fuzzy feeling that they are helping towards paying the bills.

    How much money are you talking about?
    Enough to maintain your forum or quit your job?
    I'm generating enough to cover expenses and a little extra for my hobby.

    I think it would be a mistake to think you will be generating a income immediately.
    I am not even thinking about the income yet. That is not the reson I am doding it. I was ust curious as it was a thought that popped into my head and maybe something to consider down the line. What would my expenses/overhead be for a forum? The only thing I can think of is the $$ to pay for the Vbulletin site which is a few hundred dollars and then my time to maintain/modify the site. Thanks

    Are you trying to generate an income or have the site pay for itself?

    No, it is not

    • You can get money by selling a forum to somebody else
    • You can charge money to use the forum

    $$$ running a forum

    I am assuming that the only way a forum can generate money is through advertising. Is that correct? Thanks
