    Forum Financial Update - December 2018 & June 2019

    It's December again and time to pay for another 6 months of forum hosting, plus DNS management services and domain name.
    Our current community balance is $225.05

    Today I'm paying our December through June hosting expense of $188.73 and our annual domain name fee of $19.17.
    I'm still awaiting an invoice for our annual DNS management fee of $15.00 which I usually receive in mid December.

    Once these expenses are paid we will have $2.15 remaining in the community donation pool with no other expenses anticipated until June, 2019.

    Do you prefer that people donate now or wait until closer to the bill date ? Either way works for me.

    Rather than start another thread I'll just report on this one after changing the thread title for accuracy.

    Our next 6 month hosting fee of $188.73 came due on June 1st and was paid at that time. The community donation balance is now at $48.31 with no other expenses anticipated until December 1st.

    Thank you, Alan. I appreciate all you do to keep this train running.

    Is there an explanation for this somewhere? I don't mind donating to keep a website active that I like, but I'd like a bit more info?

    TIA -

    Unlike other sites, we do not accept advertising or sponsorships for promoting ideas or products, nor do we sell books or knick knacks in order to meet expenses. We are a community wholly owned and operated by its members and volunteers, some of whom donate monies to cover approximately $400 per year in web hosting and domain management fees. As the person entrusted with those funds, I try to keep everyone updated as to when and how their donations are spent.

    And there is a "donate" button in the upper left-hand corner.
