DONATIONS NEEDED TO KEEP THIS SITE ON THE INTERNET

Postby Larry Jowdy » Sun Nov 26, 2017 6:46 am

JUST FOUND OUT I NEED TO EVENTUALLY PAY FOR SOFTWARE UPDATESJ
For years the owner of this domain has augmented the server costs coupled with the few donation I receive from members and the various items I've sold in the past. This has kept Spyderclub.com on the WEB.

About 3 years ago, the domain owner backed out and wanted to shut down the site not wishing to pump any more money into server fee's. I convinced the owner that I felt it was possible to get the necessary donations and that I would take care of all of the financial issues. This means that all the financial issues are now squarely on my shoulders.

UPDATE: As of now, I am the new owner of this site and to be completely honest, I have no intentions of paying out of pocket to keep the site on the internet so it's up to you, the users!!

FYI, The server fee's are paid to March 2018.



If you want this site to remain on the web, I need donations to keep it running. Here's a link that explains how to make the donation.

in addition, when making a donation via PAYPAL, please include your Spyderclub "username"


So remember, Donations are NEEDED to keep this forum on the web. All funds collected are used to pay server fee's

Thank you very much

Larry,
I find this site worth paying for.
As I look at the roster; there are many who have very little activity.
Some have not posted in years...some have never posted.
How many actual users do we have?
People seldom appreciate that which is free.
You might want to assess a membership fee.
I've sent $20 two times to help. This is my second year.
Is that enough?

3130 members and yes, any amount of money helps. Thank you for your donations and the money you've sent is VERY helpful.
