Question TW sponsorship

Could WE/TacomaWorld ever sponsor something/someone/race-truck/event? What would it take to sponsor someone?

Get the TW logo displayed proudly on the side of a racing tacoma truck.

Tacoma World would have to sell a product for that to make sense...

I think the further this forum stays from taking money from members and being a "sponsor" the better off we are. It's not in the forum members best interest for this forum to turn into a business. I've seen it happen on other forums, the second it becomes a business, the more censorship happens, and the more serious of a place it becomes. This is a cool hangout for people to shoot the shit and talk about their taco's, no need to let money ruin the whole deal.

wow, I think you actually deserve a rep for that.

I'm not going to rag on any of the other sites, but there are a few Tacoma sites that have so many adds that each page takes a minute to load.

I personally would NOT mind making a donation to keep the ads down on TW.

Well I do appreciate all of the rep as always.

I really like this place, it's fun, everybody's got a sense of humor, and we all love our trucks. I'd hate to see it go into the shitter for a couple of bucks.

So...it's privately owned and privately runned voluntarily?

I'd much rather see funds go to the owner to help offset the costs of keeping it here. It will get bigger and use more bandwidth (if it doesn't already).

I don't know if Bob is the sole owner/administrator. I think he is. There are a few ads here and there that help to pay the bills. As the site gets bigger, more people should be clicking on the sponsored links. If people are looking at helping the site, you should go ahead and do your truck shopping by clicking on the "Shop Online" button at the top of the page.

So they get points/credit for simply clicking on the links?

I doubt it, but I don't know. I think that you have to actually spend some $ there.

TacomaWorld.com will be represented in this year's Baja 1000 for free. I figure it's the least I can do for the service Bob provides.
