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!

If we donate later on does our money sit somewhere until the time comes to pay the bill?  I donated last year but right now I'm freelancing and money's a bit tight. But I want to give something in the future.

We should open up a money market account or something, lol.

A long-time lurker myself, I didn't want to see this site just go into the internet abyss.  Donated to keep this unique place around.

Obviously, I can't speak for anyone else... I suspect I am rather anomalous in this regard, but I do not object to you posting the stmercy2020@yahoo.com email that I use for paypal. It doubles as one of my business emails, so the more attention it gets, the better!

Apart from that, you might consider asking people who donated if they wish to be recognized and by what name/account. For myself, I don't have any particular interest, except that I think/hope that if people see some names of people who have already donated, they might be more inclined to donate in the future.

For my part, I am extremely grateful for all that you do; you run a quality site with a minimum of drama, and that is exactly what I want after a hard day at work. Thank you!

Many of us use screen names because we are simply more comfortable sharing our imaginations that way. It's not a big deal for people in Read-Only mode, but many of us who write stories and post our thoughts frequently are more comfortable with an alias. 

As we see over and over, ANYTHING and everything you've ever posted on a web site or social media is ultimately retrievable and could be used in inappropriate contexts. At least when tied to your real name. While our real names and locations are disclosed when donating, and thereby not truly secret, I believe it's important that information remains in the hands of the site owners and developers (who I trust) and not shared with the general public.
