    Default Save VHLinks Campaign For 2016 - DONATE NOW!

    Good morning all,

    Well it's that time of year of again! This will mark the third year we will do a donation drive to have the VHLinks server paid for by you guys the members for the next year. After hearing people ask me when we are starting the server drive this year, and realizing we struggled a bit to get there before the deadline on October 1st last year, I think starting it a few weeks earlier than last year would be a good idea. So today's the day!

    First of all, as I have said last year and will say again, not having to pay the server is a huge load off of my plate finacially, so I really thank all of you who have donated to keep this place going. It was a life-saver financially. And frankly it will be again this year.

    My goal is to get the server paid in early September and we can just be done with it for the next year, which is another reason to start earlier this year.

    The server price is the same as it was last year, minus about $85 in donations I got over the course of the year that are being applied. I didn't expect we'd get a lot of donations during the year, I know most people wait until we do this. We're looking at needing about 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.

    Also every year I try to think of stuff I could give as an extra incentive on the site for people to donate, but apart from the little icon and the basics of a premium membership, I can never really come up with something special that makes any sense. If you have any ideas, please feel free to send them to me and if we can implement them we will. Last year I did send out VHLinks stickers I had left over from years ago, but sadly they're all gone now.

    Below is the donation link for PayPal, remember there are three tiers...$30, $51.50, and $100. You can also click the link at the top of the site that says "VHL.com Donate." Goes to the same place. If you wish to donate without using PayPal, send me a PM and I'll get you an address. We will also be updating a banner near the top of the site so everyone can see the progress of where we're at as well. We did this last year and I think it was helpful.

    2016 VHLinks Server Donations!

    I may post this in various places on the site so 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 has served the VH online community since September 1, 1999. Hard to believe we've been here that long!

    Just thought I'd let everyone know we're at 8% so far. I'm waiting to have the old banner graphic updated and I'll put it up like last year so everyone can see the progress.

    Well we're at 19% so far, which officially means I'm worried. Yes there is still time, but I can tell you guys right now there is no way I can foot the bill if we don't at least get it pretty close...and pretty close is...well $500 at most. And right now we're about $3,000 away from that. No pressure on anyone honestly, but I'd be remiss if I didn't say I wasn't a little concerned. I do want to do get a reminder banner on the top of the site, but I'm waiting for it to be updated. I might just have to make my own at this point, we do need it as a friendly nudge.

    I thank everyone again who has already donated!!

    I will probably also post this in the other donation threads.
