    [​IMG] i dont think KiVan is in this for profit or gain. i think thats a bad idea, and maybe he could get into trouble getting profit for it [​IMG]

    Passion moves us..

    we want no profit..

    your idea is nice, but i think is lame to be paid for stuff like this..

    we are building this site with every avaliable stuff.. Now is going everything fine.. but.. who saids what could happen in the future...

    the only sure thing is that we'll do our best [​IMG]

    Maybe this proposal might prevent that from happening.. sad to see a sight bleak or fade away.. But there again fo you charge people then they will run away and that will lead you back to square one..

    Keep it Free...Keep it Clean..and it will remain cool


    Take Care
