Good morning, everyone! It’s around that time of year where we’re doing the call for yearly donations.
Running a website can be cost prohibitive, and since I don’t take on advertising, the costs come out of my pocket. This is done by design to keep this site independent and a refuge for people to share their feelings without the fear of corporate censorship.
While there is a monthly cost to keep lights on, there are other fees that come out every year that also add to the expense. These items are:
Yearly license for the board software plus add-ons
Domain name purchase
Yearly server fees (database size, email accounts, 24/7 server support)
Reinforcement of the dams to keep the commentary from crashing the site (This may or may mot be true).
As always, I am grateful for the all of your support through the years. We have been kicking for 16 years! It’s insane to me that a community I thought needed an independent area to share their love (or loathe) of a show still exists and still stirs passions throughout the country and the world. While there are other social options to share your passion for the show, having you guys and gals support this place means a lot.

Thanks for everything you do to keep this place afloat, Bill, and congrats on the nuptials! (I accidentally started to type "muptials," and briefly imagined your wedding being recreated by Muppets... which would probably be pretty amazing.)
