Why is it so difficult to find where to post an ad here? Why can't you just put a link here that says "Post Your Ad Here". It's kinda rediculous that you can't call it what it is. Anyway, I can't find it.
Don't worry about it being seen. Just about everyone here uses the NEW POSTS button and anything, anywhere that has been posted since their last visit will pop up to the top of their list for viewing (and they do get read by most of us).
He might be referring to something like a banner ad or something like the small advertisements you see plastered around some other boards, which we of course do not do here. If it's a small banner or picture there are ways to attach those within the thread post but outside of that, there are no mechanisms for more conventional advertising.
We've suggested it, but I think Jake declined the offer, urging us to contribute information to the forum instead of money. With that criteria, I'm certain Orion has more than paid his dues; I, myself, may not have a sufficient knowledge base to ever contribute even a fraction of what I get from this forum.
I, too, would be willing to contribute money toward the forum to keep it going and improving.
Hey guys, thanks for the offers, it means a lot. Right now just being here and helping to answer people’s questions is all the help I can ask for from you. I'm flying my rear end off over here and can barely manage to get on the site once every couple of days. Knowing that a large group of regulars give their time every day to make sure things go smoothly on HBA takes a huge load off my shoulders. Maybe someday donations might be appropriate, but only once I've got the time to take that money and improve the site. If I foot the bill, at least then I don't feel so bad when I let some of the improvement projects slide... :gig:
Here are a couple of pictures from the other day. It looks so peaceful and sublime. I should have known better because about 2 hours later we lost all hydraulics and had to do a run-on landing in no joke 3/4 miles vis due to smoke and haze. The locals here use fires to cook and it can build up a wicked "fog" bank around our airfield for a couple of hours in the morning. Just happened to catch the peak fire time. To add to the fun, because of the nature of this particular hydraulics failure, I had to use two hands on the cyclic while my co-pilot had to use two hands to operate the collective. Not fun! The funny thing was that once we got the airfield in sight (thank God we were lined up) apparently folks had gotten word because there were people lining both sides of the runway for the show. If they knew how hard we were working just to keep it upright, they would have run for their lives...:gig:
