Sad to see VS Source disappear.
I do pray that Pete doesn’t pull the plug here!
+1 to that.
It costs time, effort and money for Pete to keep this site active - ably supported by the moderators giving their time day to day too. I can only assume that any (small) affiliate income to offset some of the costs has virtually dried up completely as click-throughs to make bookings fell away during the pandemic.
It's probably 5-6 years ago I contributed my £50 for lifetime membership, after being a 'lurker' for many years before, and I would have no problem paying a £20-25 top-up to that one-off fee under these unusual circumstances to make sure the valuable information and hints/tips/warnings from fellow members keep appearing on this forum.
As we all hopefully start making forward bookings in the coming months (sadly will be late 2021 / early 2022 before I'm on VS again) then I assume we can all help by using the affiliate links as appropriate....maybe one of the moderators could post a 'sticky' to remind us all how it works / helps the site?
