A special thanks to…
We’d like to thank renowned artist Paine Proffitt who contributed a superb artwork to celebrate OVF’s fifteenth birthday. The image displays many of the highs (and lows) of OVF’s history. Thanks to the other regular contributors to this site: Barry Edge who has contributed many features; Gerard Austin, Alex Steventon (AS Photos) and Paul Humphreys who have both provided many images for us to use. Many other users have also provided photos, memorabilia, criticism, comments and interesting articles for us to feature. Many thanks to the admin team who do a voluntary job to professional standards and are the unsung heroes of OVF.
If we have missed you off the list, forgive us – but your contributions are all very welcome!
You ask for donations, what is the money for?
We have high hosting costs due to the traffic demands on this site. We also pay for additional RAM which helps keeps the site running when traffic on it is very high. We also pay for software licenses, image licenses etc – all of which make our monthly costs considerable.
OK, how can I help?
