The donate button is turned on across the forum for the membership drive to cover 1 year of costs.

Our current server will suffice for now, but we do need to do some updates, and that will be part of this.

As always, please either put a note with PP for which 'user' it came from, or send me a note by pm. That way your banner can be updated.

Hang in there on the updating banners, as it takes a bit to match things up.

Muchas Gracias'

I have 1 unaccounted for, one for 20.91



If I leave some dashes above, that means I cannot account for it on my end to change user status.

Some prefer it that way, but if you choose, just let me know by pm and the change will be made. If you want to be on the list, off the list, totally up to you. Just inform me accordingly.

Donated. Somehow I missed the note line last year. That makes things easier I imagine.

to answer the question posed:

a little over a couple grand for a server
between 4-500 for some updates I am doing
then about 500 for some techno wizardry

meaning, goal this year is about 3 grand

we are about a third of the way there, and we just started

Thanks to all

Please check the list in post 1 to make sure you are accounted for, along with your banners

For the record, it is a pretty darn impressive list at that,

Gracias'

I am so excited to finally be able to donate toward something I have enjoyed for years. I have never seen donations available before.

I have 3 unaccounted for. One for $50
Another one in at 103.30, and one for 20.91

HMMM ......... it appears MY contribution has been lost in PayPal`s miserable system. I went to donate again and noticed two choices on the first page ....... to donate by paypal or to d0nate by credit card. I chose "credit card" the first time . I wonder if this would make a difference as far as how long it takes to receive my donation ??? It was for $26.60 U.S ... or $33.18cdn (give or take a few cents)

You will receive, for your dough-na-shun, a gold banner under your photo attesting to your participation in said raffle...I mean...ante...membership..AND...you don't have to show your member...unless you're an assistant health director, and we'd all pass on that.
You'll also be known as a supporter....lol...fill in the blank on that one.

Hopefully you got my PM Scorp. IN.....like Flynn. And like some others have said I'm more than happy to support a forum with some sanity, and normal and mostly clear thinking individuals.

WE PASSED GOAL!!!

We are at $35 and change, so good to go with the plans on the update,

Thanks to everyone,

I will only leave it open at this point in case someone wants to get in before the lock. Every year there are those that are disappointed by locking down too fast. Sometime tomorrow I will take down the banners, and even then there will be someone disappointed.

Again, look at that list in post 1

One helluva impressive list of contributors!
