Potential Forum Crisis
« on: August 14, 2018, 09:12:45 AM »
There is a financial crisis that involves 1858remington.com, and consequently, the 1858 Remington Forum.

I have a financial crisis that will not be resolved until October 31, which is the date of my next substantial income. Until then, my highest priority is providing the necessary essentials for my family, which is challenging enough. I do not foresee sufficient income for this, much less being able to resolve the added financial requirements of maintaining and operating our online presence.

I am a state employee working at our local high school. We are shutdown for the summer without any income and our money is rapidly running out. I usually make ends meet by doing various jobs, but I am  under doctor’s orders to take it easy for now.

Since internet access is not the highest priority, I may have to let our home internet service go. So I will not be online often, but will stop in as often as possible to ensure this forum and its sister forums are operational online without any issues.

If anyone is led to do so, please help with our forum costs so this forum will remain online untouched. Please do not act out of a sense of obligation. Nothing is expected of anyone.

I assume the donation link on the home page is operational. The link states blackpowdersmoke.com instead of 1858remington.com. At this time, that can not be corrected.

Here is a personal PayPal link http://paypal.me/Tim08

Snail mail address:

Tim Lewis
PO Box 3832
Lumberton, NC 28359

I am not sure how often I will be by, but I will be around when I am able.

Thank you,
Smokey

Much gratitude to the ones who have helped.

I am working to insure that this type of thing will not happen again.

The objective was to meet the immediate need. This has been surpassed.

Any surplus will be used to help purchase yearly hosting, so this will not happen again.

And if there is extra money left, it can be used to purchase ssl certificates, which will increase forum security.

I'm with G. If everyone here would donate 5 bucks once a year we'd be covered in spades! That's a Extra Value Meal at Mickey D's, or one cup o' dat foo-foo coffee at Starbucks... {+*

I know you guys like this and the other BP Smoke fora...and Smokey has taken the work out of it with the DONATE button. So easy a cave-man can do it. :9)

Hey Len - Norwegians, too?


Pro tip:   Save $200.00 a month.  Brew up at home and take a Thermos.

Len since when are you a Turnip?

and his wrath undoes the wicked."

Well now that's a very tricky question
