DM, do you get unsolicited donations throughout the year?

The Isles board I frequent used to keep a thread for donations which would be updated everytime there was a donation (no names, just amount) and would also show the current balance of board funds. It would also show what was spent, whether that was for monthly expenses or to upgrade the software.

Just an idea.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

We do get donations that trickle in throughout the year. The last donation before I requested some this week was from the beginning of May from CADevilsfan.

I will get a donation tracker installed, there are several available but I will try and find one that allows anon donations.

We are now up to $895 for this donation drive! That should get us about 10 months. Very cool.

I am for tracking but not with names even if the person says it is okay. Anon seems like a balancing move however it can create extra problems. I have seen publishing names have a very negative effect on other forums. Also, there are some folks who really cannot afford to spare any cash. They do other things for the forum. Just my $.02 :)

I distinctly recall that donation, I believe. Have I gotten better, at least?

Yeah, definitely. Well, at least I think so.

Edit: To clarify, I wasn't referring to what lead up to the donation just that it was long overdue I actually donated to DM.

Marty I'm sorry for bringing this back but Sammy asked... Posted Image And your post was pretty epic and the thread is still good for a laugh.

#1) I think this discussion should be split off. We're getting off topic. If we want njdevs to continue, we need to support it with a few $$$. How close are we to goal?

#2) I think the discussion is interesting which is why I suggested splitting it off rather than removing the posts. DM owns the site. He makes the rules. But the membership is being asked to pay for it. I understand the work that he pours into it, along with msweet and Rowdy. Maybe we are paying for a service that they provide and I should view it that way rather than seeing this as a community?

Holy Crap.... I haven't changed my avatar since the Olympics. I just noticed that.... I'll fix that tonight.

OK -- so that's inclusive all upgrade costs? I haven't even gotten around to donating so you can't let us off that easy. But thanks for the report all the same! I'm just saying a little additional whining woudl be good. Have the Devils ever donated anonymously? I think it would be cool if Vanderbeek slipped you a Portrait of Madison :uni:

It's an ongoing effort to keep this valuable site going. Don't quit a fund raiser because we hit the year max. Keep donating even a dollar to keep this site going forever. Thanks DM


I just donated and I am going to donate again for next year.

Marty will still be around?
