Many, many thanks to all you generous people out there for your donations. There are just too many of you for me to write to thank you individually.
When I first mentioned donations, my hope was that there would be enough offers to meet the hosting costs for the next twelve months. The initial response to my request was such that I quickly had to revise my target to two years, which had the added benefit of being able to take advantage of the discount available on the hosting company’s biennial tariff.
However, this still became an unrealistic target as offers of donations continued to come in, at a far greater rate than I had originally anticipated. The end result is that, if/when the final contributions arrive, there will be enough in the kitty to pay for a third year’s hosting! My apologies to those who wanted to donate more but, as you can see, the £5 I set was certainly enough.
I sincerely hope that some of the lurkers who came out of the shadows to offer a donation might now feel that they can participate more actively on the site. It’s not compulsory but, you never know, you might enjoy it.
To conclude, my sincere thanks to all those who made a donation. It has helped to secure the future of Fifteensquared (not that there was any doubt, at least not whilst I am the administrator!).
