    Hi

    I wanted to know if it is possible to buy paid membership or how one can contribution to the forums. It's not that I have much spare money but this forums has helped me a lot and I would like to contribute whenever I can.

    Could anyone of you please tell me who owns this forums and website?

    Regards
    PG

    I'd inquired in a very similar vein several years ago.

    No, the owner does not wish to engage in paid subscriptions or acceptance of donations; they are happy with it just the way it is now.

    However, I'm sure that non-monetary contributions (i.e. technical articles) would be appreciated my the forum membership.

    Yep.

    Another way is to look for unfinished chapters in the book and start writing. It's what I do.

    And hopefully one day you will be able to "pay it forward" so to speak and assist fellow forum members with their problems and questions.

    That is the real strength of this site. Everyone has something to offer, and no one can do it all (though Wookie makes a real good attempt).

    Since I'm new I don't have much to contribute but a couple of the members have been super helpful so if paid membership is ever considered I would be first in line and would even pay for a couple of people who have been the most help with my questions.

    Hopefully one day I'll be able to give back as much as I have received.

    Hello,

    Have a look at this old thread:
    How is this site sponsored?

    I hope that jrap can still confirm what he said back then.

    You can contribute by embracing and practicing the philosophy of the Gift Economy as I have done.

    A good starting point is reading Charles Eisenstein's "Sacred Economics" which is available online as a gift.

    In the same manner, knowledge contribution on AAC is a gift for all to share.
