Couple of points that you might be able to help with.

1. It's been well over a year since I passed the begging bowl around and the site has continued to grow and its bandwidth, maintenance, taking backups, sorting accounts, domain renewals etc also grows along with it. If some of you could donate towards the upkeep either by donating or assisting with point 2 below I would be very grateful. You can donate by clicking on the donate button above (I realise there's currently 2 of them - I will sort that in due course - they both take you to the same page). You will be placed in the "site contributors" group and your username will turn black 8). Please note I'm unable to take any other payments other than Paypal as it keeps the site funds together. Small amounts £3-5 by some of you would be great and would secure the sites funding for the future.

2. Some of you may have noticed that the forums have no "Moderators" - MancInblack has mod rights for the "songs" forum which he's doing a fantastic job with but I need someone to assist with moderating in the Stranglers/Hugh sections of the forum. I need someone who checks the site at least once every two days and reads most of the new stuff - who is fairly balanced and is not power hungry! (does this person exist?!). Very occasionally you may need to edit a post if someone is being racist (never happened yet thankfully) or generally out of order (has happened on a few occasions). If you're interested in helping out this way it's appreaciated please PM me.

That's that for well over another year.

THANKS!

Jim

Very happy to support the site - can't seem to see the donate button though. Can you advise a possibly-blind middle ager where to track it down?

Weird. The donate button only appears when I log out of the forums. Anyhow, done now.

Thanks so far people - that's about 5 months in the pot and 1 moderator (looking for one more if anyone's interested - PM me). I'd like to see a few other's supporting (particularly people that although they don't post often I notice them visiting the site almost every day - clearly worth the price of a pint to keep us going?).

THANKS

Jim
