How many regularly contributing members do you have? 100? 200? Take that number & multiply by 10? 15? 20?

Not how many contribute financially...Anyway, I'm a good example. There are the links all over the pages, staring me in the face. But they are kind of small, and they don't really stand out, frankly.More importantly, however, is that human nature dictates that we all just groove along, enjoying BBC, and not giving it a second thought. I mean, until the site got slow, and you implied that it would take financial wherewithal to fix the problem -- well, I didn't give a moment's thought to contributing. Doesn't make me a bad person or anything -- just never crossed my mind.So -- DON'T BE SHY DAVID!! Send out a separate "special" post soliciting contributions. I bet you'll be surprised what comes in. Assuming, of course, that people can actually get online & read the special posting! Ha!Sometimes "the best things in life" AREN'T free...
Aaannnyyyway...I will send what I can when I can to help. Hopefully others will do the same.Also, it doesn't offend me if I have to be slapped up side the head once in a while. A post now and then requesting funds is okay by me. Bill
