Some time back I saw Java Ranch request asking people to support Java Ranch by contributing money and getting a custom title (may not be exactly same but it was on similar lines).

My question is that the Java Ranch says there are 1.5 million page views per month and a huge number of unique visitors. There are advertisers too so does not the advertising revenues help you in overcoming the maintenenace costs ?

We have never been too interested in maximising the capital from the Ranch, and any time we have it started to feel like work.

We have tapped a few small areas that provide sufficient income to manage hosting fees, which is why we run fund raisers when we need anything larger like the recent server upgrade.

It also allows us to keep the site virtually ad-free, and those that we show are by choice rather than because we have to.

What David said.

Oh, and I think in the page views department, we're somewhere around 3 million per month.
