Welp... the world has at least somewhat stabilized, so hopefully this is a better time for the annual donation drive than March would have been. I realize that 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, so I fully understand if people won't be able to contribute. Time once again for me to beg and plead for everyone to chip in to cover Heavy Harmonies' expenses. Costs for the site run about $191 a month, about the same as last year. So when I say "costs", what do I mean? It's the out-of-pocket expenses to keep Heavy Harmonies running: server lease, bandwidth, hosting support, and the subscription for this forum software. After several excellent years in 2017 and 2018 when the drive reached goal and then came within 88% of goal, 2019 didn't do so hot, only reaching 64% of goal. The donation drive will run through Halloween, October 31. Anyone who makes a single donation of $20 or more and has a board username will be added to the group "2020 Donors". This gets you the following benefits: A nice shiny icon in your profile showing that you are an HH Donor for 2020: An increase in the size of your PM storage from 200 to 500 messages Exempt from the search flood control (normally if you try and do a search more than every 20 seconds, you get an annoying little "please wait" message) The ability to start threads in the sale forum. No time limit on editing your own posts! This will especially be useful for those with trade/sale lists as you'll be able to edit them rather than posting revised versions. A warm fuzzy feeling inside that you are helping support Heavy Harmonies! If you donate $50 during the drive, either as a single donation or across multiple donations, you will be added to the group "2020 Gold Donors". This gets you the following in addition to the above: A bigger, fully animated shiny badge: All your posts will be highlighted, because if you show this much dedication to HH, what you have to say is obviously more more important! (just kidding, but your posts will be accentuated). In your donation, please put your board username in the notes section! Otherwise I have no way to tie your donation to your membership here on the board. If you are currently in the 2019 donor groups but don't wish to donate this year (or can't), at the end of the donation drive, your group membership will revert to the regular non-donator membership group. Membership in the 2020 Donors group will last until the end of next year's donation drive, at which point you can donate again to remain in the Donors group with the same benefits, or revert back to your current member group. PayPal donation buttons are found at the top of all the pages on the main site and here on the forum on the right side at the top, or if you'd prefer to send a money order, check, or cash (not recommended, but I know some people prefer to do so), you can make payable to Dan Harding and send to: Heavy Harmonies P.O. Box 17158 Urbana, IL 61803 USA If you can't give $20, give $10... if you can't give $10, give $5... it's just once a year. (And if you happen to be fortunate enough to be earning 6 figures or more per year, please feel free to give gobs of cash! I'm not opposed to having a sugar daddy or seven ) As always, your support is greatly appreciated! -Dan
