OK, its is a cut and paste from what I posted on MJ.. but:

Observation:

According to Jeremy's responses in that sitepoint post, its monthly revenue of ~$1300-$1400, plus hidden *income* from donations from members.

Also in that post, he says it totals $800 in costs per month to run the site.

I.E. $500-$600 a month in profit, besides pocketing donations from people.

So, how come evreyone SWORE he was losing money hand over fist every month?

Someone is lying...

I don't make any money on Gl4x4.. About 30 cents a sticker after shipping.. so, not really any..

Server costs are not that bad either.. <80 a month.. Just being able to buy parts for cheap from people on this site makes that worth it for me.





If you look down, you will see a donations forum, where it is 12 dollars a year, that money goes into an account used for GL4x4 functions...

Hey CC why don't you offer the remaining MJ ers an invite to come over so we can be a big happy disfunctional family again .

You know at the time I thought it was childish the way things were going last fall but now that I have to hop from site to site I kinda miss all the excitement rolled together on one site .....
