OK, I will ask @Drew4UTk  to look into this for us. It's probably because you did the raffle.

Guys I greatly appreciate the support.  The bill is due in a month and I'm scraping it together as fast as I can. 

I'm going to have to alter that link.... it'll be a link to a link lol- the server caches pages/functions to serve them faster, and I think the link gets tripped up in that... I'll set up a link to a static page that'll take you to PayPal as an alternative that shouldn't make the same mistake as soon as I clear some white space.

Server dues are $3500 annually.  I dont expect the costs to be covered by members or users- as I use the server for two more sites... one is afro's board game and the other is the woodcraft site.  

There is another about to be launched and I'll be making somewhere around $2k for designing, building and launching it.  This is a new development as the server has been used JUST for "us" and supporting sites.  However, it takes a chunk out of the annual dues, so I see it as necessary and required.  

So... if I could pull in $1500 annually from selling crap on the woodworking site and donations (and I hate asking for donations... this year is tight or I wouldnt) and so long as $2k a year comes from the other site about to be launched, we're good indefinitely.   

I dont think there is need to do a monthly contribution.  Maybe we'll do a drive once a year and dependent solely on how well the woodshop or supporting sites do... again, this year is tough where it usually isn't.
