    Exclamation Need to help out.

    Ok guys we need to help Andy out. He's woking 3 jobs and is barely making enough for the forum. What i mean is that Andy is aying out of pocket for all of us! And Andy, just so you know, i was NOT attacking you and the only reason i made such big deal was that i was unaware that you owned the site. Had i known i would have cared far less. I still intend to uy a plant or 2. \Back to what i was getting at. I think that we should make monthly donations. THIS IS VOLUNTEER ONLY!!! I think it would help Andy alot. Lets hear what you guys have to say!!

    I think it is worth a couple bucks a month for sure. Maybe put up a paypal donate that goes straight to the hosting.

    What about people who dont want the plant? Even then if we do buy the plant it may not be enough...i was thinking 10 per active person comes to be....8800 surely thats more than afew months payments if all 880 active members donate.

    Sounds like a good idea to me whowe.

    10 dollars a year is a great deal to keep this place going. I know I have gotten more than 10 advice here.

    A "premium membership" was discussed a while back. The "Thank You" membership is what became of that idea. And for the record, I'm not sure what the criteria is to be an active member, but I know that there are not 880 members that post frequently.

    See these links:

    Part One.

    Part Two.

    End Result.

    Sorry, I posted the links while you were responding. It was still a volunteer thing. Read through the links above and you'll see the variety of options that were considered for a "premium membership" as compared to a normal membership which would have still been available to the general public.

    I know it says there are 880 active members, but what makes an active member? Post once in six months? Once a year? I'm not sure, but I've always wondered. I'm just saying I know there haven't been 880 different people posting in the last 3 months, at least. That's not to say that we don't have a large membership by any means. We have a large contingent of active, dedicated, and knowledgeable members, just not 880.
