I just want to make an accounting real quick of the site contributions, and how they're being managed. With all the payout and refunds and questions about the future, I haven't posted yet 'cause I wasn't sure just what was going to end up happening.
So far, y'all have contributed a total of $145.00
PayPal Fees $3.08
Domain Name $9.20
(one month trial) $14.95
Total in the "bank": $117.77
If this host works out, I'll be paying for the account on a yearly basis. If not, it will depend on what the new hosts want -some want two years; others want month-to-month; others are flexible and offer different plans according to the circumstances.
I do intend to purchase some kind of classifieds program; I have one now (a trial version) that I'm trying to make work. If it does, I'll pay for it myself, and we'll charge for ads, as I think that is more fair and equitable way of doing things. And, I feel much better offering a specific service or product to those who pay -it just seems more forthright, and professional.
In the meantime, if there's some particular feature or content you all would like to see here, let me know, and I'll be happy to see what's available.
