We are talking now many month about how to share the cost and how to help to keep the catalog up to date. I have many positive reactions and many collectors support. We are in general a great community and I'm proud to be a member. But there are so far only 4 collectors who contribute ...
Of course not everybody can spend money. For example I do not take money from students or collectors doing a hard underpaid job at the banana farms. And - of course - not everybody is able to help in updating the catalog because of the foreign language.
If you like the catalog, are working with it and have got an own income, then 30€ to 50€ each year could be fair. You participate at the cost that really exists. The catalog with the search functions are informativ and helpful. The trade function with the 15,500 duplicates is brilliant and also the function to maintain the own collection and the private trade history.
To repeat it: This website is NOT for free but cost money each month. If you not want to pay or not like to help and keep the catalog up to date, there is no reason to keep you at this site.
