HAF Hosting and Domain Fees
« on: May 13, 2017, 03:29:40 PM »
For any of you who want to contribute toward defraying the expenses of running HAF for another year, the place to do it is paypal.me/WhitneyFord.

While the fees aren't huge, members have previously shown willingness to help ensure that this place keeps afloat rather than depending on Whitney to cover them, even though she's willing to do that. Nobody is obliged to contribute. The benefit of doing so is limited to personal satisfaction since we don't make any public acknowledgements of the individual contributors, and the active staff won't know who contributed.

Still, I'll say thank you in advance. I'm glad HAF is still around; it's a fine little place and that's all due to the sterling members of this site.

If you're up for it you can transfer your contribution to me and I'll pass it through my paypal account. If you want to do this I'll PM you my personal email and we can pass details that way.

There is some more to come. Do we have a value for the remainder?

I'll get in touch with Whitney and see what she has to say about that.

Ok. Drop me a PM. I have a contribution from another member on its way as well.

So approximately how much does a year of operating expenses cost? Are we talking a hundred or a thousand, or what?
I guess I never think about costs of keeping a website up and going, but this lovely little corner of the internet is worth supporting.

A little over $100 a year.
