    NHC Winter 2015 Fundraiser - Goal Met, Thank You!!

    Why We Do This: Server, software, and miscellaneous costs for the No Homers Club and its associated domains run us approximately $1100 a year, and we will only receive an estimated $500 to $600 in advertisement revenue in 2015 (yes, that's up from last year!). So, we rely on support from members like you to keep the forums online. We have run these fundraisers continuously for over a decade.

    We're currently in the early stages of moving the NHC's member accounts, threads, and posts to a new database and very likely a new forum script, which will hopefully cut down our annual costs substantially. After this is accomplished, we will hopefully either eliminate the fundraiser or run only one per year.

    Fundraiser Goal: $250


    Prizes! (For non-moderator contributors)

    Top Donator: You will be a NHC global moderator (that is, moderator of all forums) for three weeks with a custom-colored username and custom "stars"

    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.


    Contributors List: @Steve @kupomog @Dark Homer @burnin' @Financial Panther @Jims @pat @comeau @Ryan @Smiling Politely


    Total Donated: $271



    THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL WHO CONTRIBUTE!

    Does Adblock affect advertisement revenue? If it does, I can turn it off on this site.

    yes but of course very minimal for one person, especially in the non-christmas shopping months. no worries.

    i asked eric to use the $20 he would have owed me for fantasy baseball on the fundraiser instead. i also texted him stating i haven't seen a fundraiser goal this low in probably a decade. you guys are doing some good work over here, so keep it up. the ultimate goal here, kids, is to make daddy eric and daddy jacob as much money as possible!

    anyway, just figured i'd check in here quick and say a friendly hello to the old stomping grounds. may the force be with you

    I'll send 100 bucks if it stops the forum from going down(sans maintenance of course).

    Also since I've been here for more than five years and I don't think I've ever contributed. I'm such a user.

    good lord, are you sure about that?

    thank you regardless - I'll try to work faster to make the changes to the board so we can get off this buggy vbulletin.

    roarke was alerted that the board was down last night, and acknowledged such, but I'm not sure why it stayed down. too busy I suppose.

    @Smiling Politely did you paypal me? when? thanks

    Eh, I got money. Just means less of it to spend on video games is all(although Majora's Mask did just come out). As long as I'm able to buy beer I'll be fine.

    is it possible for you to try to notify me again? I can't pull up this transaction.

    I couldn't figure out if there was a way to notify you again, so I just cancelled the transaction and re-sent it.
