PayPal shows names for the deposits, so I use those. I need to update the donation page and the first post in this thread soon...

First post and donations pages updated. Sorry for the big delays keeping these things up to date. Thanks again for the donations-- we're 100% donation funded, since we allow no advertising, and the folks who moderate this place and keep it running are all volunteers.

Ok FZ1OA peeps, it's time to pony up. Our checking account is getting low. Since we didn't have a big Gap rally this year (which used to net us the bulk of the money that keeps the lights on throughout the year), we're going to need an infusion.

So, I'm making a very rare request for donations.

Our server costs $250 per month. We accept no advertising, and our illustrious staff is all-volunteer. So we need at least $250 each and every month to keep this place going.

To make a donation via PayPal, go to the FZ1OA donations page

If you don't do your part, I will be forced to kill this kitty. And nobody wants that.

Thank you, Tom and all who make this thing work. I know it is an extra job for everyone that keeps the board running. I appreciate everyone who gives their time to make it work so good.

Thanks everyone! We've had a great response. I've updated the first post in this thread and the Donations page with the donations through this morning.

I really appreciate all the donations. Those are what pay the rent!

Looks like the kitty lives for now.

If you haven't donated yet, please feel free to do so. The more we have in the bank, the less I'll have to post up asking for money.

This is going to be a regular occurrence from now on, so all we need is 50 people donating $5/month to keep things going (or 25 for $10 per, etc.). Just sayin'. You'll miss the smaller monthly donations less. As they say, skip one trip to Starbucks. If for no other reason, the lack of ads on this site makes it completely worth it. And of course that's not the only reason.
