Affiliate Links...

A little bit can go a long way... we've made a small change to the forum to allow for a bit of assistance in paying the hosting fees - this post is from the new Kasterborous Forum:

It would be completely amiss of us to to implement this without informing our loyal members.

In the next couple of days, we're going to start trialling affiliate links. Words such as '', "" and "" etc will be automatically hyperlinked. These links will contain affiliate codes and should anyone visiting click on the links and end up making a purchase, then will benefit.

Anthony, Brian and myself pay for Kasterborous' hosting out of our own pockets, and are happy to do so. However this isn't an ideal situation, and you will notice that there isn't a single advert on Kasterborous other than the links to Doctor Who websites.

You will find these links unobtrusive, and there is my no means any compulsion to click them. Forum users are encouraged to use full URLs for commercial websites should they intend to link to DVD, books or auctions, whatever.

For instance where you might have once simpy typed "" and hyperlinked it to the Genesis of the Daleks DVD, now you will need to simply type "Amazon". Typing will, as you can see, produce an affiliated hyperlink.

If you have any queries or observations, please feel free to let us know.
