    2nd Highest Donator: You will be a NHC moderator of any forum of your choice for three weeks with a custom-colored username and custom "stars"


    To Contribute: Send us $$$ to funds@nohomers.net via PayPal or send us a personal check or money order. Please send me a private message to obtain that mailing address.

    If you guys don't get much more money I'll see what else Joshua and I can chip in. Might not be too much more w new mortgage to pay, though.

    I'll get something in again soon.

    By the way, @eric, have you considered some of those advertising plug-ins that are available for vBulletin? I've seen them on other sites sometimes with highlighted ad words or whatever. I know everyone hates ads and often block them or whatever, but as long as they're not really obtrusive and stuff, it might be a way to boost revenue a little.

    My money's tighter than ever right now but I really love this site and everyone on it, so I will do what I can.

    @eric I'm also expecting a fairly good tax return this year so I'll be able to help out a little bit more once I get that. Sometime in early March hopefully. I'll let you know.

    I'd...uh..."shove some of dem shillingz" towards your way, but, no money.

    Oh the joys of being a child.

    I would send a very generous amount, but I'm quitting my job soon and my paychecks are not going to be very big. :/

    You're BoJack Horseman, no cure for that.

    Note: This should be the last fundraiser at $500+. The move that sped the board up considerably also cut our server costs by 75%. Next one should be ~$450.

    The issue causing the known downtime right now is also being looked into -- it's an inherent flaw within heavily-traffic'd VB forums.

    No problemo, happy to chip in. I was hoping I'd be able to chip in a little more than $7 but I did what I could. If money starts looking a little better, I'll send a second larger donation.
