Site Donation 2018

(1/6) > >>

Hello Everyone,

It is that time of year again when the 2018 bill to keep the site up is coming. The price for the site is $190 a year. The price increased because we have to have SSL installed to be part of google search. Any donation will be helpful.

Thanks you for being part of the community

Just want to update everyone that for this year we are going to try something new. We are going to keep the donation up all year long instead of just opening near the end of the year. Let me know how you guys feel about this change or do you think it would be better to just keep it close and only open it near the bill date.

For me, end of the year seems like a better idea, although I don't have a vested interest in this.  I only mention it because you asked.  All year seems too easy to disregard, at least to me.  When it only comes up when it's necessary, it creates in me an sense of saving the forum when it needs to be saved whereas saving the forum all the time doesn't seem to be as purposeful.  Others may not react that way, so maybe try it an see which gets the best response.  As a side note, I appreciate you covering expenses that are not met, but I really don't think you or anyone else should have to do that.  But thank you. 

Sorry, I donated last year and hope to donate next year.
But the GF and I are renovating and we don't have much to spend.

I hear you.  For some reason in retirement, things have gotten much easier for me financially, something I never expected, and I fully realize that for some people meeting monthly expenses is a major event in itself.  And I know about renovating and building houses where simple improvements often come in denominations of $1,000 and they just keep coming.  I remember finally getting to a point where my wife and I both working could replace threadbare tires without having to sacrifice something else.  I had a feeling that I could breath for the first time in my life.  Then I got divorced and was back on half the income, and making charitable donations was no longer an option.  I'll have to replace my roof sometime in the near future, and I may not be able to help out the forum for a year or two.  Don't worry about it.  I'm glad you are here.
