    October pledge drive

    Here we go again. It's a new month; let's beat September's total of five new Cyburbian + members.

    Support this message forum, which has been around for 17 years. And Dan, fearless leader.

    I wish I could do more than just be a +, but I haven't had a job in over 4 years!

    Sig line

    What I added to mine will magically appear at the bottom of each of my posts throughout the site. Now I'll have to go add random comments to each thread so that everyone will be bombarded with this info.

    Get me into the next clubbbbbbe level faster, too. Bonus!

    So starting October 6: 26 Although I need to ask about that number, because it seems that Mods are not added to that number...

    Ok, I finally did it.

    After letting August and September slip by, I finally did it. I've been a long time lurker who has wanted to jump in and become more active, but my reserved, introverted nature has held me back. I'm not sure that becoming a + member will change anything, but I wanted to show my support for the site.

    I love you Hink and Veloise. But if this site is subjecting itself to "pledge drives", then it's in serious trouble.

    Personally, I get a lot out of the site, and if we need to get a couple bucks to keep it alive, I will probably sell a small dog.

    We are looking at doing a lot of different things. If you value the site, but don't want to give money - I get that. But please at least throw out ideas for ways to help right the ship. We all just assume that this place will exist - unfortunately we don't pay the bills for it to be here.

    Any thoughts would be great.

    Hink started the monthly pledge drives in August. I re-upped in September. Dan had a memorable evening a couple days ago and that's when I modified my sigline.

    We are just trying to help Dan out a little. He pays the bills that allow us to play out of his personal finances. Sure he gets a buck or two from the ads, but hey, it's not too much to ask to pony up a few bucks now and then. Speaking of ads, have you clicked yours today?
