I would like to thank Christine of memoriesinmosaics  for her kind donation to the  forum and shop. Congrats on the nice sale on the HAFshop by the way, I like big ones like that. We appreciate the support, it is definitely a give and take thing around here and I think that is what makes our little group special.
Enjoy,
Andrew

My pleasure! Thank you for the advice and friendliness here! I don't know if it came from your generous use of ad space in the forums, but I was happy to wake up to a sale for my custom glass drilling services this morning. Have a great day, and happy sales to everyone :)

You are so very welcome. I appreciate all the hard work both of you put in.Y'all have been so helpful. I am so happy to have found this forum, everyone's so friendly and helpful.
Have y'all thought of setting up an account where people could sign up to donate a little every month. Let them pick the amount, say $1 -$5. That's not a lot, but its an amount that most would not miss, so maybe more would sign up.
Just a thought, y'all might have already, and I haven't ran across it yet.

We could actually create a subscription to do that. That could give different levels of donations. We always wanted the forum to be free, so will do our best to keep it that way. I could set up these subscriptions but I would like to give something back for a donation subscription. Not sure what I could give though, I need to think about it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I wonder if you might get pledges - on other boards I belong to we support monthly and have a little badge on our avatar that says we are a x-supporter depending on our monthly donation.

Might work for you as you have a great place here. I know I've just started using it but already I've made great connections and I'm learning a lot.

Thanks for the suggestion. We are actually probably taking down the donation button as we are merging the forum with the shop and it really wouldn't be appropriate anymore as the shop charges artists to sell. So the donation button may be just going bye bye. Glad you're enjoying the forum so far though

Thanks so much to all the support that our members have given us to this point. We are eternally grateful and couldn't do it without you. The donation button has been removed from the forum and I'm closing this topic.
Thanks again you guys are the best.
Andrew
