    BillsZone donations

    As you are all aware, BillsZone is able to exist because of donations to cover the costs we incur to exist. We do not have ads on the site. Primarily these costs are hosting fees, unless a software upgrade is necessary. We have not needed to upgrade the software the last few years, however we do have annual hosting fees and these are due February year and our hosting company have held the fees flat at $828 a year.

    The last few years our donations are down and have not come close to covering these hosting fees and I have made up the difference. In fact, donations have not covered even half of these fees.

    We are asking members to donate at the link below. If PayPal does not work for you, please PM me and I will send you information on how to donate without using PayPal (a number of members have done this in the past). I wanted to start this now, so there is plenty of time to raise the money for next year

    In the past we have tried to include perks for donating, which are also explained at the link. If you have other ideas as to what we could do, we are more than willing to listen.

    Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you might have

    Ticat and I take that as a challenge.

    Then again you Americans expect to build a wall for your benefit and then say Mexico will pay for it.

    Dumb Americans.

    Shiva should have a platinum donor tag. He lost the $100 bet to me over the election and it was agreed that coin would go to the zone ?

    Re: BillsZone donations

    Hmmm.... Thanks for sharing. I need to look into that... You're right the language there sucks.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    To those that donated - thank you. We all appreciate it.
