URGENT - and I do mean urgent was created by fats
Hi All,

As you know this site works on donations and we have a hosting bill coming up very soon, and we need your money, the bill is $171 and that will cover the next 6 months we currently have $70 I was not aware of the urgency until I spoke to Lfan who is handling the finance and things are not great.

So I'm asking members to donate what you can to keep this site open, we need to raise $100 in the next 3 days to keep the site open, otherwise, 20+ years of the site will come to an end.

Thanks

Fats

I was going to drop $20.00, but the donate button appears to be set to only allow for $5.00 donations. No worries... I guess I'll just hit it four times.

EDIT: And now it works. Go figure. I guess it just needed me to bitch at it so it could get its act together... :p

10 Euros from me. I wish I could do more, but I have to fix my taxes first.

It looks like we may have turned the corner (fingers crossed). The staying power of SuperWomenMania has been absolutely phenomenal over 20 plus years. A massive thanks to Fats, Lfan and Woodclaw for keeping the site going, And a massive Thanks to all who have contributed to keep her running.

Just donated £20. Please don't be afraid to annually ask for a fund raiser to cover site costs. Whilst not everyone can, those of us willing I'm sure would not mind. Thank you for all your work to keep the site running.

On mobile you can't see the amount you tipe in (at least on my Huawei P20 pro android). But managed to donate 20 anyway. Please if you need more, just ask. I don't write a lot but love the site since over a decade and gladly contribute.

As Monty pointed out we probably already moved out of the emergency zone, but it's a good idea to get a bit of a buffer-zone so that we don't have to redo this too soon.

Hi all,

Firstly I would like to thank the 40 people who have donated to the site to help keep it running, I'm going to work on a thanks page listing your usernames, (pm me if you don't want your username added) in just over 24 hours the 40 people have donated enough to cover not only the next bill but the next 3 bills meaning that we have currently enough to pay for 2 full years of hosting.

That's right SWM will be around for at least 2 more years thanks to you.

If people want to continue to make donations over the year their names will be added to the thanks page.

So on behalf of Lfan, Woodclaw the mods and I, a sincere and heartfelt thank you.

If there was any doubt regarding how much we value SWM and its webmaster and moderators, this should put that to rest. SWM is the port that we sail into each day to up-load and down-load our imaginations.

Wanted to echo my sentiments and thanks to everyone for stepping up so quickly and in a big way!  I'll take responsibility for the urgency as I have been out of the country and did not see the bill till I got back.  That combined with some miscommunication between Fats and myself led to the rather elevated threat level. 

FYI, we probably wont be posting the benefactors' screennames since we do not have them..  We only have record of email addresses and "names" which I prefer not to disclose to help protect people anonymity (which people seem to mostly cherish around these parts) 

Thanks again and love to all of SWM!
