Default BOARD FUNDS - October 2014

I've gotten the ticker working again, so you can see it up at the top of the board. As you can see, we're not doing well at all. Last month we only took in $43.27. We've used up our reserves and we're not going to be able to cover this months hosting which is going to be due at the end of this week. Is it time for this show to be cancelled, or is there enough interest to renew it for another season? It makes me sad to think we may be close to the end, but I am not sure that that is not the case. What do you all think?

I'll squeeze some spinning for the board if need be (selling a skein if someone wants some handspun on here) donating everything minus shipping.

Another season was not specifically aimed at ONE month, but we are kind of down to a month to month situation. We need $150 to run for another month, which is the same amount that it has been for several years now. We always set the ticker to say $175 in hopes of being able to build up a bit of a buffer for the hard months and for other expenses, such as domain name renewal which is also due later this week or early next week. Doing it that way has saved us several times in the past.

To be honest, I think this is it. This thread was posted last night and its noon now, the next day, and its had many views and almost no replies. Currently we have 70ish users online and it says 19 are regular users and the rest are guests. Sometimes I'm surprised that I can be out for several hours and almost no new threads. People are busy. Many of us work now. many homeschool, some busy with a lot of littles around the house.i don't think the small group of regular posters are going to be wiling/able to pay a fee each month to stay active.Wedon't have the traffic anymore to attract people that want to make banner ads, where Im sure the bulk of the money for the fees used to come from.


If this is the end, Mel and SAm and the mods- thanks for letting us hang here all these years! Its been a lot of fun for the most part I will miss CDN!

I told my husband the same thing last night, Kelly. As sad as it it, I've been trying to reduce my internet time so its probably a good thing for me.

I was thinking the same thing, Kelly. I wish, so much, that I had the funds to contribute regularly, but I don't

This makes me so sad. I am completely maxed out and don't have any extra to donate and I wish I did. I want CDN to stay around bc AMH is gone (which breaks my heart) and this is the only way I stay in touch with those ladies as well as everyone else.

My thoughts are the same as Kelly's. I've thought it for some time and it bums me out but we've limped on for longer than I expected TBH.

And I used TBH which shows I have spent too much time reading my nieces' FB posts!!!

the thing is, we'd be here at the end of each month in the same spot. Its not whether or not one person can donate so I don't think you should feel guilty or bad about it. Board fund raisers are okay here and there to cushion the reserves but we can't rely on that each month.

i agree...even if we squeaked out this month, the closer to christmas we get, the less people will have to give. i gave monthly for quite a while, but stopped recently because i alsmot never came here anymore. and when i do, there are just a few new posts it makes me sad because CDN was my home for a long time now and i really love it here.

Thank you to Mel and Mom and all the other admins and mods for making this such a wonderful little corner of the internet. You ladies have helped me through a lot and i've even gotten to meet a few of you in person CDN has definitely impacted my life for the better

It's so sad, but I think it may be time too. The board seems to be very inactive lately, not a lot of posters or members around anymore.

I agree with Kelly. It's sad to think about though.
