Thread: Photo Gallery?

    Default Photo Gallery?

    Hey everyone. We just upgraded the message board software to the most current edition. There's only one problem. The old Photo Gallery isn't compatible with the new system.

    We've spent all of the money that was raised in the last fundraiser to pay for server expenses and to pay for the new upgrade in the software. We don't have any money available to upgrade the Photo Gallery to make it work with the new system.

    The cost would be $139.

    If you want us to keep the Photo Gallery, this is your chance to help keep this feature.

    Please reply to this post with the amount you'd be willing to contribute, or if you'd like to keep it private, send me a PM or an email.

    Call it a pledge if you will.

    If we've reached the money within the next week or so, I'll give you an address to send the money to, or we can set up something for credit card users.

    If we don't raise the money in a week or two, we'll just do without.

    Thanks!

    Well, we just don't have the money for the new software upgrade. But, if we can raise enough here, we can pay for it. So far, we're up to $30 of $139.

    I can pledge $50 on Thursday.

    What do I need to do? Get on PayPal or what?

    It is the least I can do especially since I forgot to give in the other pledge drives.

    I like this site and I will do what I can to help you guys out.

    Hey guys, we're up to $80.

    I'll donate $20.

    We still need about $40 more.

    Actually, since Paypal takes a cut out of the proceeds, let's try to raise $50 or $60 more.

    Anyone want to step up and donate $10 or $20 for the Photo Gallery software?

    By the way, if we don't raise the money, we will refund your money.

    If you want to mail your donation, I'd be happy to give you a mailing address.

    Thanks.

    Come on guys, we can put together $50 to save the photo gallery. If you can contribute towards that, please reply. Any amount will help, even if it's just a dollar or two.

    Patrick are you counting the $50 I am donating in with the total.

    I will probably donate it sometime tonight or tomorrow.

    Yeah, here's the donations we have so far:

    Jay: 50
    Keith: 20
    Intrepid: 10
    Patrick: 20

    My goal is 150.

    By the way, if we can get one free user to sign up as a Premium Member, that would work as well. That would bring the total to 147, which is acceptable.

    Thanks everyone so far for your support. I know many on here loved the Photo Gallery. It's too bad the old software won't work with the new message board.

    Deadline to reach the goal is Friday, Jan. 27th.

    Thanks, mariner.... You are da' man.

    I think it is extra neat, especially since you are from another state. You are indeed a very giving person........you have my utmost respect.

    And Jay and Intrepid and Patrick...............................very respectable men...Thanks.

    Thanks mariner and everyone else for your donations.

    If anyone needs the mailing address, let me know.

    So far the list of donors:

    Jay- 50
    Keith- 20
    Intrepid- 10
    Patrick- 20
    mariner- 20

    Total: 120

    Goal: 150

    Balance remaining is 30!

    osupa, we'd be thankful for any amount you can give. Do you have a Paypal account? If not, I can PM you the mailing address.

    Thanks everyone for your support.

  21. Default Re: Photo Gallery?

    I can do $20, too. I need the address PM'd to me, since I can't remember how to get into my PayPal account.

    Here is what we have so far:

    Jay $50
    Patrick $20
    Intrepid $10
    Keith $20
    mariner62 $20

    With sweetdaisy's $20, and with osupa05's $20, we have a total of $160.00.

    Thanks to all of the above members for their willingness to go above and beyond, to keep the photo gallery going. You are truly the cream of the crop. It is interesting to me that, out of the 7 members that donated towards the photo gallery, 5 of them are single people. That tells me that these single members have had to sacrifice, in order to give what they gave. Believe me, $20 is a lot to me, so I know it's a lot for the single people. Heck, $10 is a lot of money to me.

    Again, thanks to all of you for your support.

    Thank you so much everyone. You guys are great. I knew I could count on everyone to come together so we could get the new software. You guys are this site, and I really appreciate you. I'l PM you with the address, if you want to send a check. If you want to use credit card, contact Todd at Todd@okctalk.com, and he can work you through the process.

    Final pledges:


    Jay $50
    Patrick $20
    Intrepid $10
    Keith $20
    mariner62 $20
    sweetdaisy $20
    osupa $20

    Total: $160.00

    The software runs $139. Of course, with some of the donations, Paypal will take their cut. Whatever money we have left, we'll just put towards operating expenses. Thanks!
