We appreciate your concern.
It is noted and stupid.

Hey there folks,

As a few of you may know, I recently left my job, which has left me on a budget. Flare costs around $800 a year to host... and well, I'd appreciate it if you guys could help offset that cost. The goal is to earn around half of that, but perhaps that's a bit lofty. Feel free to prove me wrong.

I've added a Paypal button to the bottom of the page, which you guys should feel free to use.

If you don't trust Paypal, and would like to donate using some other method, send me a private message and we'll talk.

BTW... it's either ask for donations or add ads. Don't make me. [Wink]

Hey, what is the going rate? I'd have to pay a bit more - what with the Australian dollar and all, but happy to do so! (As long as you bastards keep posting here!) [Smile]

I just donated to Blogtimore -- if you can wait for my next payday, I'll send you some moolah.

I gotta set up a new Paypal account (I switched providers so many times I forgot whay I'd originally signed up as!).

If I make a good donation, can the boards go back to black?

Andrew: $20 USD is a nice round number, but more is always welcome.

Snay: Thanks.

Jason: There's a new design coming up sooner or later, which is a bit darker. We probably won't be going back to white on black any time soon... at least not the entire board.

I'd love to donate some cash. But I'm flat broke, and any money I do have is put away in a savings account. I'd really hate to see this place shut down, so once I get some cash flow I'd be happy to send a 50 your way.

I'll try to put in something if I can - getting married later in the year so most of my money is being stashed for that, but I'll see what I can do. Do I have to use paypal, or is there a g-string I can fold some notes into? [Wink]

What kind of lameass prize is that!? I'd wanna mod the Star Wars forum...

Maybe whoever donates the most money gets to be Charles for a day [Razz]

I'm donating Andrew's soul, Jay's shaved off hair, Shik's newly re-aquired freedom, Omega's faith, 20 excess pounds from wherever you'd like on Tim, all of Snay's black legos, whatever little faith in humanity Sol has left, and Liam's hairgel.

Can I donate my Crohn's? I don't have much else right now. I've actually got a note from all my doctors essentially saying I'm not even to THINK about finding work for about a year. The state of Washington is presently paying me $339 per month to live on... Thank God I'm not eating and staying with my parents. Otherwise, I'd be living on the street or dead. And Social Security turned me down for Disablity. 'Scuse me? I spent six weeks in hospital, came damn close to dying twice, came out of it eating through a vein and 65 pounds underweight, half-blind, and prohibited from working for at least a year. Do I have to saw of a fracking limb or something? Sheesh...

So. Yeah. Be glad to contribute when I can. Until then, a dollar from each member would be more than enough. Too bad we'll probably never scare all of them out of the Land of Lurk...

I remember those days... Back during that dark time when Flare had banner ads...

I'd like to contribute but I'm presently broke and owe a large sum of money to a bunch of people, so I won't be able to donate for a while yet.
