I notice that some of the donors on the Treasury page are listed as "Anonymous." 

It depends on if the box is checkmarked or not to list the name or be listed as "Anonymous" from my experience.

I will be doing an audit for the past 6 months of donations, as I usually do from time to time. Those who have donated and don't have "site supporter" on their profile, and want it, will be adjusted at that time. Those who wish to remain anon, will, as usual. Those who have had problems donating, please PM me and I will look in to it.

We have a nice sum of money in the paypal account, which will be used to renew the server for a year or two (depending on the deals available for long-term renewals) and I will be considering an upgraded plan as our database has grown considerably since we started this wonderful site 12 years ago. If there is any money left over, I might hire a freelance PHP developer to fix the Friday night shutdown issue once and for all. I'll keep everyone posted.

Will we have the Treasury for the site again?

It is past April 15 (taxes paid) and there is no Treasury button. This seems like an important problem to me.


...... you can always click the donate button here: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=WokFampDOpry2J4cx1vL3vRlaXJzMkoaNwhxyHaoyt6yji3G25-kWulw3B8&dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8da8649a435e198e44a05ba053bc68d12e


The PayPal link does not work!


LenInSebastopol: what do you mean, the paypal link did not work? What happened, exactly? Thanks!


The paypal link does not work. This is the message: "Sorry — your last action could not be completed". That's it, other than "If you came to this page from another website, please return to that site (don't use your browser's Back button) and restart your activity".

Opus118,

I have asked about the Treasury and was given a reply that seemed like the return of the Treasury would probably happen.  So far, no further word has been given.

I do have an update, I had to go to a Cal State San Marcos graduation thingy and then other things arose once I got home.

This is what I did. I went to:

http://www.anastasioshudson.com/

There is a donate button.

I put in the amount and once got into PayPal, I was able to specify what the donation is for.

It has been rare for donations to be in significant surplus (often deficits, up until now), so the treasury accounting is not currently necessary to justify need.

So is Mr. Hudson part of OC Net? Is he the Treasurer?

I believe this was the latest/last response to that:

Shameless plug: if you appreciate the work done on the site, please buy my book here: http://www.anastasioshudson.com/publications/new-book-metropolitan-petros-of-astoria/

If it doesn't interest you, you can always click the donate button here: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_flow&SESSION=WokFampDOpry2J4cx1vL3vRlaXJzMkoaNwhxyHaoyt6yji3G25-kWulw3B8&dispatch=5885d80a13c0db1f8e263663d3faee8da8649a435e198e44a05ba053bc68d12e

Donations that went to the former Treasury plugin only support forum maintenance costs, and I did not take a penny from that, ever. However, I do have expenses and needs, and would appreciate any support possible personally. I've always stayed away from putting ads on the site (even though I could probably generate $500/month) because it's annoying, and because I would also feel obliged to share with the moderators since they are the ones providing the most hours of service to this site. This is the only time I plan to advertise a personal appeal.

I love you all (really, I do--if I didn't, why would I have dedicated 13 years to this project?!) and I want to keep this site going forever.
