Time to renew the forum for 2016

Postby Russ » Mon Sep 21, 2015 12:39 am

It's time to renew the forum for 2016. Here's a bit of the notice from the web host:

AMOUNT DUE: 131.88
DATE DUE: 10/20/2015

I can pay it all by myself, so this is not a pitch for money; just enjoy the forum as always!
But I know some members want to share the cost (one member has already contacted me about this year's renewal!) so I make this same announcement every year.
If you are interested in chipping in, my Paypal ID is tokyoruss@gmail.com
Any amount is fine, but anything under a dollar will be eaten up as Paypal fees.
As always, I will keep donors anonymous unless you specifically give permission to mention your name.
Then I will thank you here in this thread.

Thanks!

Thanks to the member who sent $35.00, and thanks for the nice note!

This year I'll post the amounts so you all can know when to stop sending!

If we go above the renewal fee for the web site, the extra will go towards the domain renewal. I have no idea when that happens; I forget these things too easily.

Thanks to the member (one of our original members) for the gift of $50.00!

That brings the total to $85.00 now.

I hope I'm keeping this low key. Those who can't or prefer not to support the forum by money can always make valuable contributions in the form of posts on the forum itself. Something I need to do more...

Special thanks to the long-time member who sent 5000 yen cash ($41.54 USD at today's rate).

That brings the total amount to $171.54 USD so we have surpassed the goal by $39.66, which I will apply to the domain name renewal fee. As I mentioned before I can't remember when that will be or how much it will cost, but it always sneaks up on us when we least expect it. I'll be sure to mention it when the notice comes in next time so we will have a point of reference!

Thanks everybody for supporting the forum!
