Hello. Thanks for using our forums!
After well over a decade in operation, we're now for the first time asking regular visitors like you if they'd consider becoming a BCG Supporter, donating to help keep the site running: https://www.comedy.co.uk/donate
BCG is expensive to operate and sometimes it's a struggle (for many months, Aaron and I have been paying out of our own pockets to keep the site online). We're now at the point where we need to look at additional routes of funding to continue what we do.
People have asked from time to time in the past if they could donate to our upkeep somehow, but we didn't want to accept without being able to offer something in return. The donation page on the link above details a range of new features and functions we've just launched to do just that: from swish chrome lapel pin badges, to additional data views.
(BCG Supporters also see less adverts, so if you find the top banner advert annoying when browsing these forums, it may be worth donating for that reason alone!)
This isn't just about securing the site's future. We're also aiming to expand what we currently do at the same time too, funding more functionality and creating more things to read/watch/listen to.
Our mission is, and always will be, to celebrate, promote and champion British comedy, and we'd love you to play a part in that. So if you can spare £1 or more, please consider becoming a BCG Supporter and keep the site alive!
We really hope you share our vision for an even better, bigger BCG, and we hope some of the special perks we have to offer will pique your interest too.
Mark & Aaron
