Annual fundraiser to support the forum
« on: November 17, 2015, 06:54:30 AM »



This is a copy of the total cost of renewal for the year we just paid for continued service.. Although the forum is 100% free to join, use, and enjoy, this is the basic monetary cost to operate.. If you would like to donate feel free to paypal funds to account ***************.  Any amount is greatly appreciated and please make a public post in this thread as to the amount of your donation... We wish to only collect $133.90 or less..  If by any chance we collect additional funds the money will be used to further extend the hosting and a receipt will be made public!  There is a slight cost of using paypal that we will absorb.. 


WE ARE FUNDED FOR THIS YEAR!!! THANKS TO ALL THAT DONATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tried the link and it fetched an email address, no account linked to PayPal which I use often for online purchases.  Will help if I can figure this out.

Mark, you have to open up PayPal, log in and then type in the email address that Patrick gave.

Thanks to everyone who donated. We really appreciate the support. We usually try to do a plant sale instead of donations but this year both Patrick and I have been super busy and haven't had much time to spend on forum related things.

If anyone has any suggestions or comments about improving the forum, please feel free to send me a message.
