Based on this info and my understanding you funded this 100% in the past, we need to get you caught up. It is not fair you paid for this expense, it was nice of you,,but everyone needs to find a way to double (at a minimum) the original goal. This way we can start paying you back.

LMAO

My wife is a huge Bengals fan and football fan in general, but she doesn't really get the whole message board thing, and she's not so crazy about the time or money I've spent on the site.

Every time she sees a charge on the bank statement that's related to the board, she acts like I just paid for a subscription to MrSkin.com or something. LMAO

Thanks for these details Holic.
I think having these details out in the open can help make everyone aware of what all goes into running a site of this caliber.

And not trying to push this agenda on everyone, but just for a bit of info...we can get to $700 by just having 35 people donate $20 each.
I love mock drafts!

I have a challenge.
Anyone who I have pissed off (probably 95% in the forum) donate $10.

This post probably pissed off the 5% so make that 100% now!

Let's get to $1400 so Holic can stay married and make his better half happy

I funded the site for about the first 20 months, but ad revenue helped pay the bills last year.

Allowing the community to donate this year will not only cover the bill for 2018, but we might get rid of the ads as well.

I always change the channel when I see that commercial for two reasons.
1) My dogs actually watch TV and will bark whenever they see/hear an animal on there.
2) It's sad.

Question though...is $700 the yearly cost to run this site? Or is that lifetime?

Donation submitted as of right...

I'm getting around to it, when I have it to spare. I wouldn't assume people don't care. There are a lot of folks who live check to check or close to it. I have zero doubt we'll get to $700 and likely surpass it, no guilt trips necessary.

It's also worth noting that we're in the most dead part of the year for the boards. After the SB, but before FA and well before the draft. So there's probably a lot of guys who haven't even seen this yet.

Yea, the best time for a fund raising event would probably be around the last preseason game imo. Fans are psyched about the upcoming season, so there's an uptick in traffic I'm sure.

Fo sho. We'll still hit that threshold, but it might take just a bit longer.

I had to buy my wedding bands which left me in a giant hole, that I've (sadly) had to cover with savings and they'll be in my account tomorrow.

I'll donate then :)
