    Default Want to SAVE VHLinks.com? Here's your chance

    Fellow VHLinkers,

    As was evidenced by Brett's recent announcement regarding the closure of VHLinks.com, this forum has reached a crossroads in its long and proud existence.

    While there remains a better chance than not this site will close after October 31, we'd like to offer the membership one final shot at keeping the ship afloat.

    This thread's poll is being posted to gauge interest in the forum becoming supported 100 percent by its users. To keep the site alive and completely cover the costs associated with its operation, we need at least 200 Linkers to support the site at $20 per year.

    So, in summation, here are the important facts:
    1. Vote in this poll, as soon as possible, and be honest. If you're not willing to send a donation soon, and plan to do the same on an annual basis, please don't indicate that you might. We need to know an exact number of members willing to join this effort. No maybes.
    2. In order to avoid the forum's closure, we need the donations in-hand prior to the end of October. If you're indicating your willingness to support the site, be prepared to transfer the funds in the immediate future (we'll ask for the funds later on if this is successful).
    3. If you're supporting this transition, be advised your $20 donation will be needed on an annual basis around this time of year. We need a constant group of at least 200 users to make this happen!

    Is this an ideal scenario for the future of VHLinks.com? Of course not. However, I treasure this community, and I know all of you do, too. We CAN keep this community functioning.

    Bottom line: Brett, who agreed to allow this poll to be posted, has shouldered the burden of this website for 15 years. If you want to see it survive, if you really fucking love VHLinks, it's time to return the favor for a once-a-YEAR contribution of $20. Guys, that's less than most of us spend per WEEK on alcohol.

    Let's do this. VOTE!

    Scotty

    NOTE: Don't send money yet. We're waiting to see whether we can get to 200 members. Any donations sent in the interim will be refunded if the site closes.

    What happens if people start sending money and that threshold of 200 isn't met?

    Nobody send money yet. We're just getting a head-count first. If we can't get to 200, we won't ask for the cash.

    Also, any donations sent in the interim will be refunded if the site closes.

    When I consider that it costs me 40 some odd bucks a month to just have basic local channels on my AT&T U-Verse cable... Hell yes, count me in... no questions asked, nothing expected in return except the survival of the links.

    Yes. Just to reiterate what 47 said. My payment comes with no strings attached. No terms other than keeping the switch on.

    In other words, keep calling San Francisco and its fans super gay as much as your heart's content.

    I'm definitely in for 20, 40, 50, whatever it would take to make up the difference if there is a shortcoming. Not saying I'd chip in a grand, but wouldn't really think twice about 100 if it came down to that.
