Hi Everyone,

I've really enjoyed getting to know you all in our growing community here. I believe a lot us have benefited from this group. I certainly have. Thank you all for your participation.

This network uses a service from Up until now, the service has been free, except for having to put up with the google ads that ning puts in. Well now, they are closing our their free accounts.

Since we have well over 300 members and keep growing, I'll need to convert over to their second tier plan which will cost about $200.00/year. You can see the details at

I'd like to keep our community going and growing, but I'm gong to need a bit of help from you all.

If you find value in our community, would you please help me offset the costs of keeping it going? If everyone who cares sends just a couple of bucks, I'll make up the difference.

You can contribute via paypay by sending money to Or send a check to

Brad - Could you update us on this? I'd be willing to "invest" a few dollars in keeping the group up but wonder if there are enough people expressing interest.

Hi LT,

Thanks for your interest. Your question is the first response of any kind that I've gotten.

I'm thinking about trying to move the group to my own server and an open source solution. But it will be a pain to do, and I'd hate to lose this location since it's so highly ranged in the search engines. So I'll give it a couple more weeks and see what happens.

Hey There Brad, thoughts about creating a facebook group? It's free and believe it or not has more privacy controls, plus i'm pretty sure it can still be an invite only group... Or you could do the cafe press, office walker shirt, cups etc to pay the ning fees, but I would certainly be game for moving to facebook... I bet 80% of folks already are on there....

I like the Facebook idea. I'll help however. Would like to have access to this very special group of people.

Haven't signed in a while. Moving to facebook might be good but I'd like to know how things are going.

Hi Everyone,

Someone has offered to take over the network. I might go that route, but I'm not sure yet.

Thanks to those who have expressed interest.

Anyone else willing to chip in?

sure I'd be willing to throw some money in to keep it going.

Was going to suggest you add one of those paypal donation buttons. Seen a few that show the total required and the progress towards said goal. Plus it makes it more of an impulse thing vs logging into paypal and entering an email address. There's one on the left side of this site as an example.

I'm with Scott on this one, great idea
