AVSIM is supposed to be the largest Flight Sim forum, why the lack of support??

One reason might be that the donation bar isn't visible at all until you enter a thread. At SOH its highly visible right on top, covering the whole page width.

On the front page, next to the heading 'Forums", is 'Donations'..

Everyone who goes to the forums HAS to see the word 'Donations'

Again, you don't see the donation bar. There are thousands of websites where you have a donate button or tab. There's no hint at all that donations are actually required.

55 donors have found that donations are required, what about the rest?

I suppose that being motivated to support a site does help.

Again, it's not obvious. Why should anyone click on the donate tab if he/she/it just wants to visit the forums?

Ok, I'll try it once more. It's highly visible and obvious at SOH while it isn't at Avsim.

Probably when I see more support/interest in the largest sim site around. At the moment I'd rather support something that is community supported.

'Do as I say, not as I do'   If you don't donate, you are in no fit place to condemn others.

I would like to see some more overt requesting on the site for donations. Surely, whenever a non-donor member logs in, a message could appear at the top of the screen (not a pop-up) requesting even a small amount at the start of every calendar month.

Wikipedia does a conspicuous funding drive from time-to-time.
