About ASF Full Membership

ASF FULL MEMBERSHIP



  OVERVIEW:

At the end of 2006, ASF grew to a point that running costs were becoming a concern. The future of the forum looked in serious jeopardy. We had no sponsorship from any companies, no advertising funds and no financial input from anybody other than the creator of the site.

We gave all we could for free and helped each other out but this was not going to keep us going.




  SOLUTION:

Long term supporters and friends of the ASF website concluded that a membership /subscription fee be offered to visitors of the forum to give them chance to support the website that gave them both entertainment, knowledge and access to parts and resources they might never have found otherwise.

The idea was embraced with an initial donation of $20 per year being the suggestion. It soon got to the point where the average member was adding $50 - $100+ per year so a new structure of membership was put in place, each offering a little bit extra than the last. As of today, this is how that structure stands:
