    Dec 2017 : Server Funds drive. Consider donating today.

    Hello all. It has been close to a year since I have made a post like this. The site server fund is more or less dried up. Over the last years our remaining funds have been used. I have a handful of folks that still donate monthly and I thank you all. I am hoping that putting this post up may generate a little nest egg again for the site. Our monthly bill is 85 bucks so it would not take much to get that nest egg back up.
    Please consider donating via our GOFUNDME page at https://www.gofundme.com/yesfans

    I'm broke right now too - my son's car died and since he drives Postmates for a living, well, he can't do his job wihout a car. So, I paid down on another clunker for him so he can keep running. Then he found a very sweet stray cat that was sleeping on his car, but unfortunately after he took her in she developed some health problems so it's been over $300 to the vet so far, and I just set up a GoFundMe page too to help out the cat. If we get through this first part of the month, I will try to donate something before the end of the year, as I will have some money coming in by then.
    Now that our server bill is just $85/month, we won't be doing donation drives; however, the occasional donation is still appreciated to make sure we keep Yesfans up and running! Please do what you can, when you can - thanks! http://www.yesfans.com/donations.htm

    don't worry about donating if you have other things to deal with.

    Are you set up somewhere to accept Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies?

    Study the technology of blockchain and distributed ledgers first before having an opinion about "imaginary". There are a whole lot of misconceptions about inflationary fiat currency (i.e. those scraps of paper you have in your wallet) and the value you imagine they have.

    Thanks to everyone that has donated thus far. It will cover about 4 to 5 months server costs thus far.
