Site Coordinator: I can probably hook you up with much cheaper hosting and DB management. Just let me know...

SC,

I had no idea that you went through so much to get this web site up and running and having to spend money of your own!

I am very grateful for everything that you did and am sorry it took so much for you to do this.

I can fully understand the need for the ads.

love,
kathy

SC,

I too, was a little surprised by the ads, but have already learned to "ignore" them. Are we all just a little resistant to change....what does THAT say?

I totally understand your decision, and respect it. Thank you for all you do, and for all the people you have helped with this site.

ready

But, I don't think that we should ignore them because they are a nuicance, I think we should REALLY look at them and realize that we are not helping to insure the progress of this site that we hold dear and concider home in many ways, and that SC has done so much here and still has to turn to help from free laptop ads, only for us to say "Oh, good thing SC got that taken care of for us". I think the bigger picture is being missed here, that we can help realize some bigger things for this site and also not have to prompt SC to need to sell it out to those promotional companies just to be sure of its existance amd growth. I don't think we should breath easy now, I think we should all feel a little moved to help out a little. IMHO, anyway, but if we could all just TRY to send a few bucks once a month,what a MASSIVE difference it would make collectively, and with very little effort or sacrifice on us individually at that.

Yes, very true EF...I don't know that many people here know that they can donate, though. Need to remind them more often...

I figured that the ads were an attempt to raise money for the site, which I applaud all efforts to do this.

This site is a gift and SC has given so much of herself to keep the site up.

EF, I agree with everything you said. If more people sent just a bit, it would help so much. There are a lot of people who come here and collectively, much more could be done. I think the help received here is extremely valuable.

Thanks SC.

We all come from dysfunctional backgrounds, right? Maybe we could try to do soem shame based fundraising? Like a dunce cap thread?

Just a little dark humor there, I know. And I am absolutely joking. But we could try some other sort of thing, like a make-believe monthly fee, where some of us could just choose to treat it like dues. I think that personally I'm going to make a point to send in a minimum of $10 a month from here on out. But then, new persons may think it's required, and some here are less comfortable (I know that there where times the first month I was here that I barely had money for diapers), and we don't want to make anyone feel bad...

(((Site Coordinator)))

Thank you so much for enlightening us about those commercials.

I understand the purpose of these ads and support them.

I pray they will be a source of blessing to you and the site.

I hope and pray there will be more generosity from every member who frequents this lovely site!

I know that ever since I donated for the 1st time last month Feb. 2006, I am more encouraged to give more and more.

This site has been a real blessing to me and I am sure it is so to all my other cyber friends.

Thanks for notifying us SC!

Love, ~Ras~
