    Save VHLinks.com Campaign for 2015! - DONATE NOW

    Good morning all,

    So everyone remembers last year's drama with the site possibly closing in October, the discussion over doing a yearly donation campaign to keep the site going, and my internal debate on whether I wanted to go that route. In the end, we did it, everyone was amazing, and we raised the money we needed and the site was paid for 2014. Well it's been a year if you can believe that (well 11 months actually), and it's time to see if we can do it again.

    First of all, not having to pay the server last year was a huge load off of my plate, so I really thank all of you who donated last year for doing so. It was a life-saver financially. And frankly it will be again this year.

    So I want to get the drive started early, in hopes having all the funds by the middle of September (if we get so lucky) so I can pay for the next year and be done.

    The server price is the same as it was last year, minus about maybe $150 in donations I got over the course of the year that are being applied. We're looking at needing 130 people to donate $30 and we'll be there again. Again there is NO OBLIGATION for ANYONE to donate, it's purely up to you. Nobody is required to donate to post here, this is completely voluntary! Also if you donated last year, and you're obviously donating a bit under the year timeframe, I'll still make sure it doesn't end until next October, so don't worry about that. You will get in fact more than the year in terms of time.

    As far special stuff for those that donate. The mods and I really couldn't come up with anything, but I am VERY willing to implement any good ideas you guys have for those who donate. So if you have some thoughts, please share in this thread, by PM, or email. If it's something that I can do and it's a cool idea, we'll do it! I have NO problem adding special things that you guys would like.

    I do have some VHLinks stickers left over and for those that donate. I'll send them until I run out, just make sure your address is in PayPal when you donate.

    Below is the donation link for PayPal, remember there are three tiers...$30, $51.50, and $100. You can also click the gold "Premium Members" link where it thanks the newest Premium Members. Goes to the same place. If you wish to donate without using PayPal, send me a PM and I'll get you an address.

    2015 VHLinks Server Donations!

    I may post this in various places on the site so don't people don't miss it, and I really would love to get it done early this year and move on from it.

    I thank you for your continued support of the site...which incidentally will be having its 15th Anniversary on September 1st! Wow does time fly!

    I'm in enough trouble just by the shit I have posted here without that if I am ever discovered by a girlfriend, that's why. Girls are sneaky creatures, can't trust em and they will use anything against you in the court of a relationship.

    Dick Punch is a funny name and has become part of the lore of the links.


    but I digress from the topic

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before ...it's fakkin brilliant

    so what we do is challenge every linker to give money. We start with the mods and then the mods each name, nominate whatever, a couple of linkers and they name linkers and so on and so on.

    Those who give the dough....groovy...but those who don't, well, THEY have to dump a bucket of water....no no no...make that ICE water over their head! LOL

    oh gosh, this will be major! I can see this really working out as a fundraiser
    Sometimes I amaze myself with my out of the box/bucket creative thinking. I've done a lot of charity fundraisers and I'm pretty sure this hasn't been done before!
