You may have noticed the recent addition of a DONATIONS box on the front page of this site. Mercurycougar.net is run by one guy, me. The site is approximately 50% dependant on my pocket book to operate every month. Next year, unless another vendor steps up to advertise, that figure will jump to 75% of the fees being picked up by me.

With the ever increasing load on the site, it continually gets more expensive to operate as bandwidth usage climbs and server space gets used. This stuff costs moola. As much as I'd like to pay for it all, It's simply not an option. While I don't mind picking up $20 a month for the site, it ain't $20 no more!! :)

As a result, I am now making available the option to make donations to the website. Not to me. To the website. All funds donated are reserved for website monthly operations and upgrades to the software (Which isn't free either).

I want to stress that you do NOT HAVE to make a donation, and no one will look down on you for not doing so. What I'm saying, is, if you appreciate the website and WANT to contribute, you have the option to now, rather conveniently, through a button on the main page of the site in the upper right hand corner.

How much to contribute? That's up to you. $1, $5, $20, $8000... :) Any contribution is appreciated.

The donations are handled through paypal.com and are 100% secure. Payments can be from your checking account or from any major credit card.

Those who contribute $20 or over will be recognized by having their forum titles changed to "Contributing Member"

Contribute over $40 in a 12 month period and we'll send you a free mercurycougar.net sticker.

Again, I'll say this one last time. Contributions will NEVER be required and the forums will NEVER become a membership site. This is simply an effort on my part to start weaning the sites hold on my personal bank account.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me directly at [email protected]

I know he's been having a really tough time with his ankle being broken, so please be patient. I'm waiting on a couple from him too.

All the stickers have been mailed out weeks ago, so everyone has to have them. Everyone get their stickers? Sorry about the delay, I didn't plan on breaking my ankle.
