Here we go!
On another thread, Doug said "We have a bad combination of intense server requirements and virtually no budget. Going with a "name" webserver company with our requirements would cost easily over $1000 per year. "

One month from today will be May 21. I would suggest that each one of us donate another $5.00 to the site on that day. That's enough time for anyone to save $5.00. Let's all contribute on that day, and Doug can let us know how much we actually raised. Are there any takers out there? I'm willing to remind you of the upcoming date. :) I think that would be a pretty small "thank you" for making the site available for us.

Psssst -- hey Doug. We'll talk about my cut in private! :D

I'm in!

Maybe make it the week of the 21st....sort of like a public TV or radio fund raising drive.

I just pitched in $10 about 3 days ago but I think it's worth it to me for the amount of info I get out of this site as compared to buying a Photoshop book or CD or even paying $99 for a day seminar. You can't beat the site as a resource for learning. So count me in. Maybe we could do what Greg mentioned and do a drive that week.

Just thought I would add, I still think we are doing pretty good with this server for the few set backs we have had to tolerate so using the money for a new one isn't a priority with me but I think Doug could still use the money so I am still with this drive.

Hmmm, buy one less carton of ice cream sandwiches equaling 3 pounds added to my ample body OR help keep a resource open to me that brightens my day and my horizons -- tough choice, but I'll be happy to go along with the donation on May 21st.

DJ, you're absolutely correct in saying "you can't beat the site as a resource for learning".

How about it -- EVERYONE who has learned at least ONE useful technique, method, or approach, contribute $5.00 -- even if you've never posted, I'll bet you've learned something worth MORE than $5.00!

I'm in, it's a samll price to pay for such a great site.

d_kendal 04-21-2002 03:28 PM

Great idea Ed! Everything I get out of this site is soooooo valuable. I definitely agree with Sanda. count me in too!!! (but it might take awhile for my donation to get wherever it has to go to in the mail)

P.S. where would I send it to?

DJ Dubovsky 04-21-2002 04:00 PM

That's an interesting point. Where do those who would like to donate through regular mail send it? Doug will have to answer that one.
As for electronic donations just click on Support in the menu listing. It will take you to Amazon's page for donations to Retouch Pro. You will need to have a credit card for that one.

G. Couch 04-21-2002 04:07 PM

Doug added PayPal a while back per Sharon Brunson's suggestion. The email address is

d_kendal 04-21-2002 04:26 PM

Thanks DJ and Greg, but unfortunately I don't have a credit card so that won't work for me, and I'll have to rely on snailmail

I think the week long fund raiser is a good idea. I'm sure everybody has gotten more than $5.00 worth of good advice from this site. Let's just say we'll start on Sunday, May 19 - 25. If anyone has a better suggestion, let's hear it! You will be reminded!! :) Thanks for the support.
