    Andrew at www.melodicrock.com just posted this:

    HELP VHLINKS:
    Van Halen fans will be well aware of their BEST site online for all things VH - that is VH Links/VH Forums. Sadly the site is in danger of closing due to high running costs. There is a last minute call out to fans of the site to help it survive.
    For the complete story - check out: http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/save...om-t58048.html.

    From the site: "Brett and the staff are confident the Links can become a member-supported site for the foreseeable future. What this will require is an annual donation drive, around this time of year, which will cover all operational costs of the site. To make this happen, and we believe it can, we need at least 134 members to contribute at least $30 before the end of October. So, for everyone who committed to at least $20 in the poll, it's going to require an extra ten bucks on the year, and I hope you'll be on board.
    A slew of members publicly pledged more than that amount, of course. When you donate, you will have three options: $30, $51.50 or $100. It's your call, and we appreciate every single donation of any of those amounts. Just remember, we need 134 basement-level ($30) donations to keep the lights on, assuming everyone chooses that option.
    To be very clear, for this community to flourish and be successful, it's going to take an annual commitment from the membership. No other way around it. Your donation right now will secure the forum for another 12 months. Next fall, we're going to ask for your support again (albeit in less dramatic fashion). Think of VHLinks.com as a (very) small cable bill. If you want the service to exist, you've got to support it in some capacity year-round."

    Good luck Brett!

    Thanks Andrew!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    awesome that Andrew did this. i've been hoping vhnd would also, but i don't know the logistics/business end of things and how they function. just really hope this site stays alive. it would be insanely cool if they VH camp helped. we all know they're aware of us with inviting Brett to the LA thing in 2012 and giving the NY tix to him/James in NY.

    I would think if anything Dave would help but I am sure Ed and Alex wouldnt mind this place going Down In Flames. Pun intended.

    Without being too intrusive, what's the estimated cost of running this site?

    I appreciate the humor, but I am curious. This site seems to have some advertising behind it. What are the overheads? I'm not opposed to chipping-in, but I usually like to know a bit about the venture or cause in which I am investing.

    Advertising helps when people click on the ads. If none of us are clicking ads (or using adblock and not seeing them) then the advertising doesn't really help out.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    B said the cost is $ 4000.00 a year. 333.00 a month or basically a car payment, that he was having to dip into his own pocket to pay for every month. This place means a lot to a lot of people for different reasons.
