Can We Help Out A Bit?
I've taken off for periods of time, but I came back committed to staying. This site, since I signed up, has just been a really good part of my life, and when I'm gone, it's usually cuz I've gotten myself in some sort of dreary junky hole or another
But even then, from day one on here, I've always been so glad this site existed. It's a part of who I am. Even in my fucking will up there thumbtacked on the wall, case I o.d., I put the site address, and my username and password, so my brother can log in, get embarassed, ha ha...
But people have always sort of risen above themselves on here, sometimes to my utter amazement, to keep this site afloat. So many of us have volunteered our time to be mods and admins, and I've seen so much good compassion and funny stories, and hell, even some useful information, made real friends.
But they need money. They gotta pay for the servers, keep things going here...no matter how many people are willing to give time, we also need bucks, there is just no way around it.
I'm a stone junky, even when I'm clean--which I'm not, btw--which means my money is *always* earmarked, and I live on some tight little veteran's pension, now...but I managed to scrape a few bucks up to help this place keep on keeping on. I'm saying that not to sound wonderful, but so maybe you'll get motivated a bit...
Because I also found out, that lately, there haven't been many others helping. That's sad. We can do better. Chip in, help pay rent...'Somebody else' is you. I'll try to bug you'all again around the 1st...its not fair to expect the admins to come asking all the time...we should do this...it's our place, they shouldn't have to ask us to help.
And really: Thank you!
