I have to say that I come to this website everyday to get my Ranger news that I feel is reliable and honest and while I am not an expert enough to post my own articles, I would be more than happy to pay to help you keep the ad content down. (The ads make it tough to load the pages sometimes.)
What about instead of charging a fee that everyone must pay, you would ask people to donate what they can afford to help you keep the site running smoothly?
This way you're not forcing anyone to pay and those who can afford to donate a little more (I would gladly give 20 bucks a year) can offset the ones who cannot afford it or don't want to donate.
