Hi Guys, I have been away and just logged in for the first time in a while today. I noticed a box asking for donations to help run the forum on the right hand side of my screen, but can find no chat about it on the site, is it legit? Am happy to make a donation.1459203108_Screenshot2020-10-03at11_29_56.thumb.png.9b13bdf316578008d04447600a366b77.png

 

Cheers

Kev

It's legit. At the moment, I am supporting the costs of LSM, solely, so anything to help contribute will certainly be welcome for our running costs. 

Many thanks to those that have helped so far.

Thanks for clarifying that James. Happy to contribute on that basis and sincere thanks for supporting the costs to date. This place is an oasis of friendship and sanity, especially at the moment! :notworthy:

Is it a secret as to how much it cost to run this site ?

I have already donated hoping it will go some way towards the running cost.

I think its an excellent site and sincerely hope many will contribute in the hope that it will ease the burden of cost for you James . . .

Doesn't the site have sponsors?? ... I thought that there were several??

Rog :)

It does, but that was more to bring reviews to the site and generate some traffic.

We run on a dedicated server which uses SSD drives, plus we have software/renewal, theme and theme renewal costs, domains with privacy additions (GDPR put the price up for us with our domain host). Our little chunk of this with hosting comes out to around $300/yr. Since 2013, I've been pretty much paying the costs myself with the exception of HobbyZone who made a one-off donation to help out.

Many thanks to those who have contributed. Everybody is free to use LSM without any donation, but many thanks to those that have so far.

Glad to see your goal has been met, James. I made a small donation as soon as I saw it on the home page; this site is well worth the money I contributed. Keep up the great work!

Guys, I'm looking into adding a few features, one of which should make Harv incredibly happy. MORE LIKES!  Harv has run us completely out of Likes on several occasions, so we will be increasing the Like Tank from 22,500 per day to over 450,000!  :stirthepot:

And more emojis or emoticons, or whatever they call them, along with different "Like" options.  No biggie, but little things like that go a long ways to making it "fun" for others.

More likes are good...

It seems that everyone I meet these days has run out of (cough) other nouns to give, so an appropriate substitute is always welcome.

I checked one night and here was one single Like left. Any guesses to who used them all?  

Leaving one single lonely little Like is rude. Almost like leaving one half a spoonful of ice cream on the bottom of the gallon pail.

Yay!  More likes.

 

Oh...  and can we have the middle finger salute and pile o' poop emoji, please.  Sometimes the heart, trophy, confused, and sad emojis just don;t get it.

I second the middle finger salute and pile o' poop emoji.  That's a serious boost in morale and will surely make me like more things....surely.  . :D
