SFC to shutdown?! Annual Beg 2007 - hajime!!

Postby Moogie » Mon Apr 30 2007 9:21am


News from: http://www.shiningforcecentral.com <br /><HR SIZE="1">SFC News: SFC to shutdown?! Annual Beg 2007 - hajime!!<HR SIZE="1"><br />Well folks, it's that time of year again... hosting payment for SFC is due at the start of June if I recall correctly and this year my beg is more urgent than ever.<br />
<br />
In the past I have had at least a little money to add in to the cause myself. This year my situation is entirely different. As many regular SFCers may know, my relationship of over 9 years ended just a couple of months ago, leaving me without my own home, or the financial support I have been accustomed to. My life is very much up in the air and I have next to no money at this point, to last me an indefinate period of time. I cannot go into great detail due to the current legal proceedings regarding the split, but suffice to say I'm skint.<br />
<br />
SFC costs US$360 a year in hosting, which is something of a bank-breaker for me now. So, I'm here once again asking you to dig deep and help keep the site going for another year. I know updates have been thin on the ground, with my crumbling relationship having taken priority in recent years, but I know the forums are still very much used, and once my life is in some kind of order again I hope to spend a bit more time on this place. Hope.<br />
<br />
So, we've got about 4 weeks to raise US$360. I hope we can do it!<br />

Do we have a count so far? I'm in for $30. :)

30 (Alpha) + 100 (Fonzie) + 20 (Dopey) + 30 (me) = 180 / 360 so far! Woot!

Too bad this b-day money's being spent so quickly, eh Moogie?

Just thrown $20 into the pot, which is worth it for the forums alone. Wish I could afford more but times are tough right now.

Aye, same here -- poor college student and whatnot -- but I'm sure it's much appreciated.

If nothing else, I appreciate it. Thank you! :) I like this forum. It's the only one where I've really liked to stay amongst the other forums I used to frequent.

Wow peeps. Just wow.

I left this topic/the beg alone for 24 hours on the theory that a watched beg never boils...

...and I come on this morning to find a huge amount of donations, putting us well over the target in less than a day. Wow. You guys!

Looks like Moogie might be able to get herself a lil' something for Moogie Day with the rest ;) Though that does feel a bit cheeky! Will have to sort out some kind of competition or something too, it's been feckin ages!

Anyway, off to work now - decided to work outside today, lovely weather for a bikini!

Thanks again everyone, this has just been so amazing. I'm used to the beg taking a month or two to just about reach the target, but this is just incredible. We are moved to tears by the size of this thing! *lol*

So what'd we end up with?

Don't stop donating cause we reached the goal.

*Free FF tote bags for all donors from this point forward* :g:

If Moogie posts up bikini pics, I may be convinced to donate more...:shifty:
