Fundraiser Inquiry
    #3545521 - 12/26/04 10:03 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Would it benefit this site and its users if there were to be another fundraiser held? If so, would the admins outline exactly what they need, how much money each item costs, and how fast it would be implemented?

No need at this time.  We have been implementing upgrades throughout the year without any monetary problems, and still have plenty of stock monies sitting in a holding tank, buried deep beneath the ant-arctic ice cap, in the event that we ever have an emergency need for funding in the future. :grin:

If this thread has been sparked due to the talk about developing this website in terms of software (i.e. Supporter program, SSL certs, etc), well that's better equated to how much time our volunteer engineers can muster as opposed to monetary funding.

PS.  Didn't you just ask about donating money very recently?

Not to my knowledge.

The thing is that I get these rather amazing bouts of energy with a kaleidescope of infinite ideas all at the same time. When it happens I feel like I can change the world. Since I don't know Putin, Bush, Annan, or anyone who wants to try changing the way our society lives, I end up at the site I am most fond of on the web: The Shroomery.
This place has more potential than I fear most of you realize. It is laid back, open to all (except the easily offended), and capable of becoming a universal teacher from an unbiased perspective.
Leary is dead and his message was empty. Such is the case with most of his generation.

We are the new generation.

We know 'something' about the subject of this site, but where does it lead?

Is there a point to all this?

There is a point. It's not mysticism. It's not untouchable although its never fully in our sight or in our grasp.

We must yearn to reach it without reaching too fast or too hard.

This site can do more than any of you yet believe.

Michael

I am certainly not diluted when it comes to envisioning the potential that this community has to give the world and humankind.. but this is also a collective collaboration of souls, meaning that it will eventually take its own course on its own time.

> We must yearn to reach it without reaching too fast or too hard

.. and this is one of the most difficult tasks we must tackle - as each one of us has a different idea on what might be reaching too fast or too hard. I know that I've felt strong convictions for certain plans of action that ultimately weren't implemented due to a rise of conflicting opinion within the administration and sometimes the staff as well. Of course, I can confidently state that myself and countless others will put forth as much effort as is necessary to ensure the survival of this website & community, and as time progresses we will continue expand and reach out to new people, share new ideas, and hopefully open up new ways of thinking for the greater good.

This is why, above the fact that you are consistenly polite and personal, that I am fond of you, Geo.
I wish I was good at web design. In the meantime I'll do whatever you guys ask of me with editing the FAQ in wiki and adding more FAQ material, which I have been doing (in case no one else managed to notice).  :smirk:
