I'm just saying, guys... any of you who were concerned about BT closing... you can always join BT+ (or just donate via PayPal) to help us keep the doors open.
We just skim by every year, which makes it difficult to keep up with the newest software, necessary drive space, etc.

and don't forget all the high dollar avatars the admins use. ;-)

Rules
1. I do my best to communicate & ship in a timely matter & expect the same
2. If you or I back out of a trade expect the other to post so in the b/o forum etc, if thats not okay then I am not your man to trade with
3. An offer of "$25" for an item does not include s&h if you are not okay with actual shipping charges from the USPS on top of that then say "$25 incl s&h".. simple enough..
4. Please be polite, leave feedback

You seriously need to delete this thread. It's going to drive away new members.

We're getting as many new members now as we were before.
That said... the joke's a bit old. It will be going away very soon.

So, as you've probably figured out by now, we arean't ACTUALLY at risk of shutting down right now. Fortunately, our Advertisers are still helping us provide you a site that's free to use.
That said, every dollar you help us out with can help us improve the site. We just don't have a lot of money for improvements, once we pay the bills.

If you're interested in helping keep us going, check out this link:
