View Full Version : Can I ask a favour please?

As you may of seen on the main page of MC, there is a post regarding the up keep of mycockpit and the thousands of $'s it cost to keep MC up and running. I really think that it would be nice to give MyCockpit a boost financially to keep the running of mycockpit viable. Even if it is $10, dont forget that this is in dollars and a $10 donation is around 6 euro's. This is a tiny amount of money that could amount up and pay for the expensive costs required to manage and serve the website!

I know this posting is only a reflection of what Matt has posted on main page, but you can really make a difference and keep the running of this website up.

For a small donation the returns are huge, not just for the website, but for the information, data and reviews that keeps your sim what it is today. I cant thank MC enough for what it has taught me regarding my 'Cessna' sim and for the members I have met and traded information, parts and hardware. Without MC I would be just a joystick flyer and now have a full cockpit thanks to MC....

Anyway, as well as Matt, I personally would like to thank all those that have donated to MC both in terms of input and financially, lets see Mycockpit through this and keep the site high up on the map where it has always been....

Please, please donate, it means alot!

Thank you!

Would love to help, but 16 months with no job prohibits it. Feel guilty about using the site now.

Don't feel guilty. We certainly understand your situation and it's understandable not everyone can donate. I certainly don't expect "ALL" to donate.

Whether you donate or not, everyone is welcome.

Done. Happy to keep supporting the place on a semi-regular basis, it's a great resource and it would be a real shame to lose it.
