Some of you have noticed some minor site glitches. The forum has grown so much it's outgrown the current server. We've put it off a little while, but we need to upgrade to a bigger one. We won't ever have ads here; you hate 'em, we hate 'em. The only alternative is donations, and it takes about $350/year to pay for the server fees.

It's been a long long time since I've asked you all for help, but now is the time. I think we need about $420 total and that will cover us for the next year.

Anyone who can help, please do so. It's very very much appreciated. You all are some of the best people I've ever met on the net and I know we can gather what's needed to keep the site up.


Here's a cute little puppy to soften you up. :sad5:

Okay, here's where I'm at:

I'd be delighted to send $20, my share. But it'll be a money order.

If you want to give me a valid address, I can mail it. Give me a name. I don't care if it's your own.

If you want a name on the money order, I'll put it on. Or I can leave it blank...either way is fine.

But I do need that address. Feel free to PM me...I can't get it out before Mon or Tues next week; tomorrow morning it's the Chinese fire drill.

well keymanjim.....and Rutabaga "THIS" is what "happens" when a "RUMOR" spirals out of CONTROL

GOSH depending on how Ya "Heard" that I suppose some "DONATED" like Keymanjim to "save" their Eyesight" and I suppose "OTHERS" donated thinking I was gonna SHOW my UGLY SELF in the NUDE

FOR the RECORD "I" merely "Suggested" the "LADIES" do a "STRIP-tease" act & that ALL the Guys and our two or three Lesbian members would DONATE

It was Calypso Jones who suggested I "STRIP" on video

well Trinnity if the terms were "CLEAR" I may "consider" volunteering to HELP the SITE CAUSE although these RUMORS gotta be SETTLED first One Way or Other and which would be "MORE PROFITABLE"

Some browsers treat it differently. When I shut off Addblockplus and Google pop up blocker it all worked fine. If you're on a iPad no issue. If you're on a PC disabling those helps depending on your browser type. If you're using a mobile device it contribute won't show.

I use Chrome

I'll look into my theme and see if anything needs to be updated in a bit. It's probably an incompatiblity with whatever plug in is being used.

Edit. I can reproduce the white page. Just switch themes for now. Ill try to see what's wrong on my end...providing I kept my source files...which idk if I did or not. I'll check and if not I'll message admin about it. If anyone has suggestions for that theme, and has been using it, now I'd the time to suggest if I'm looking into the coding.

I'll look into my theme and see if anything needs to be updated in a bit. It's probably an incompatiblity with whatever plug in is being used.

Edit. I can reproduce the white page. Just switch themes for now. Ill try to see what's wrong on my end...providing I kept my source files...which idk if I did or not. I'll check and if not I'll message admin about it. If anyone has suggestions for that theme, and has been using it, now I'd the time to suggest if I'm looking into the coding.

Thanks Cal. This was a mistake on my end. The contribute page is a custom template that hadn't been added to your theme. It should work now.

Several people made pretty large donations. You're all so kind and it's a real tribute to the forum that you think so well of it to give that way.

Some of you have noticed some minor site glitches. The forum has grown so much it's outgrown the current server. We've put it off a little while, but we need to upgrade to a bigger one. We won't ever have ads here; you hate 'em, we hate 'em. The only alternative is donations, and it takes about $350/year to pay for the server fees.

It's been a long long time since I've asked you all for help, but now is the time. I think we need about $420 total and that will cover us for the next year.

Anyone who can help, please do so. It's very very much appreciated. You all are some of the best people I've ever met on the net and I know we can gather what's needed to keep the site up.


Here's a cute little puppy to soften you up. :sad5:

I got good and bad news today. A brand new member has donated to the site. That's the good part.

But.
Owner/admin told me how much he appreciated it because donations have really dropped off.

If any of you can donate to the site, we'd sure appreciate it. The money goes to pay the server and nothing else. Owner/Admin handles the money so I don't have to (thanks, ADMIN). Please help if you can. Any amount is fine.

Can you, or Matt or another insider, put up a running total? Objective, and donations for the week, something like that.

Also, a way to do it. I haven't used PayPal in years, and have to dig out old passwords.

And as things stand, I'm not rich. Absolutely not hungry, and the money is coming in; but with some planned expenses this summer, I'd like to see how much is needed and whether there's enough general interest.

EDIT: I see Admin handles the money. Have you been told how big is the shortfall, at least?
