    Default Site Funds

    Well people, the site's cash accountant is down to $12 after this month's hosting payment. And after a long period of contemplation (about five minutes) I have decided that you guys need to pay the $55 a month instead of me - to be fair, I have only paid it a few times in total, but I have paid it the last two months.

    So what does this mean? Well, it means that donations need to be received for a minimum total of $55 a month. If that doesn't occur, then I will have to run Adsense to pay for site costs. And I know no one wants that . . . including me - seems like a headache.

    The bottom line is that you guys are not worth $55 a month to me. I would go as high as $10, but that's probably stretching it by a couple dollars. Therefore, I hope the site means more to you than it does to me.

    Lastly, I will do a monthly accounting and post the ending account balance and the monthly transactions in this thread so everyone will know when donations are necessary and when they are not.

    Cheers.

    As a professional webmaster myself, I would like to make a suggestion regarding using AdSense in some capacity. There is a way to do it without it affecting existing users.

    I don't know the specific plug-ins, as I haven't use VBulletin in quite some time, but I know there is a way to make it work so that that ads only appear for people who aren't logged in.

    I think this would be a perfectly viable solution to help built some revenue to pay for the site, while at the same time not being intrusive to the regulars, which is clearly something you don't want.

    Dr. Haight,

    Are you sure you're not an ISTJ?
    This accounting stuff is very ISTJ-ish, you know.
    Halla will gladly shell out some of his "dollahs" for the greater good of TypC.
    Thanks for footing the bill as you have, Sir.

    Most people think I'm psychic. Does that answer your question?
