I'm a member and love American Whitewater, and that's my only complaint is their gauges.
Riverbrain is 1 guy (me) that maintains it and works on it in my off hours. I'd love to have even a sliver of income for my troubles. That being said, I support AW and any proceeds I have made off of Riverbrain I've either donated to AW or put back into the site.
I think if AW opened up their site to allow the river community to maintain it, I'd guess there would be a good core set of users that would take it upon themselves to do that. I've seen that on Riverbrain. There's about 20 to 25 core users that watch the rivers they know about and maintain the info on them. Because of them, the rest of the river community benefits.
