    Thanks for all the unsolicited testimonials The above members comments are more powerful of why they pay/support AN. For those who are interested in learning about the differences of a free vs paid membership, you can see a comparison chart here: Compare Membership

    Thanks again to all the paying members who's membership dues help keep the lights on (well servers on would be more accurate Any support is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I paid before I ever even made a post. I know first hand what goes into running a forum on a MUCH MUCH MUCH smaller scale than this forum. I know the costs associated with it. I can't imagine the costs for a forum this large. It takes a lot of work to keep a forum like this running well, smooth and efficient, in order for people to get all this wonderful information the bill has to get paid.

    I am more than happy to help pay the bills for such a wonderful resource.

    No, I don't pay to "use" an online forum (Allnurses or others). I pay to SUPPORT the forums (forii?) and keep them running.
