Be an All-Star- Donate to the Site

Post by Cornuck » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:22 am

*** As promised, we're having a fund raising session to help Brian cover the costs of hosting this site for us. ***

On May 1st, he'll have a bill for $500 that is needed to pay for hosting the Corner.

As most of you know, Brian keeps this site going for US - so he shouldn't be out of pocket for it.

So dig deep, and please send what you can spare.


You can send an e-transfer to brian@canuckscorner.com or via PayPal to brian@canuckscorner.com

If you're not shy, list below that you donated and you'll get MVP status.

And yes - even the lurkers who are here daily can also donate.

$55.00, another $25.00 if RD does not call Benning a genius (or any other reference) for a week.

Thanks everyone...just a few notes:

Some of you might be wondering why it's $500.00 a year.

Two years ago Bluehost pretty much forced me to move to a Virtual Dedicated Server, based on the traffic and bandwidth the site was using, which was a big hike in costs. That said, the result is a much faster site, and it gives me the ability to control and install a few things which I wouldn't get on a shared server hosting plan.

The Ads on the site are kept to a minimum, and don't pay a lot (because no one clicks on them). But I would rather not have a site of annoying pop up ads and videos that start playing when you're just trying to read a post.

I'm not in this to make money.

Thanks to Cornuck, Rats ans the rest of you who regularly donate not only money but their time to the cause and for starting this funding drive. Much appreciate, and I am humbled you guys think enough of the place to chip in a few bucks.
