Just wanted to send out a public (yet anonymous) thanks to the users who've donated some money to cover the costs of running AN and keeping it ad free.

We appreciate it.

We had money problems? Dang, I feel like a scrooge.

*Notices new buttons at the top of the page*

Cool.

EDIT: OMG a thong? Coasters are cool though. Maybe I'll have to throw out my AOL disks.

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^

No, not really money problems. Rather some people offered to help chip in, and asked us if that would be an option we'd make avialable. Considering up until now the costs have all been out of pocket, we were cool with that suggestion.

Your check must be in the mail still.

That being said. We'd like to keep the donation process anonymous. If you've donated, please don't post about it.

Thanks.

I'm guessing you're being facetious, but if not how do you expect that to happen? You want us to break into Jack's account and start using it posthumously?

What he said. We've clearly stated that this is an anonymous process. If you draw attention to yourself for donating, you're more likely to receive negative feedback.

The quality of this board depends on the quality of the posts. The only way to guarantee thoughtful, informative discussion is to write thoughtful, informative posts. AppleNova is not a real-time chat forum. You have time to compose messages and edit them before and after posting.

Oh, it was tongue in cheek ... and I didn't mean it to be taken as disrespectful.

More of a follow on from the rep thread - seeing that Jack's rep is untouchable and he was instrumental in getting this site up and running I thought it would be an apt tribute. I wouldn't want his account to be broken into or used posthumously. I meant that it would be a nice touch for an anonymous bit of rep kudos (of Jack's scale) for those who offered financial support to the site ... even if it came from him by name only and it was not his actual account.

But, it's not important. Nice to see a Donate link up there though.

All I want is a simple life

No, $200 of real money. Apparently stole it from some child actor he knows. He's buying us all beer all month. It's been great.
