Only a few days left

There's only a few days left to contribute to the upkeep of this great community.
If you've enjoyed it please find a few dollars to help keep it going.
Thanks

I hope the donations keep it going. I'm paying for it until March. It's $69 a month. Please donate what you can.

Hi Jon,

I suspect this site will go the way of many chat boards, and either move to facebook, or die completely. Unfortunately there is already a Michigan Morels page on facebook (in fact there are several with similar names). Do you think the donations are going to come through to keep this site up? I usually give a small amount but it won't keep it going.

I have been a member here for almost two decades, and while I hate to see it go, perhaps it has gone full circle.

Craig

I'm not sure Craig. the site costs $69 a month. It's too expensive for me to keep paying monthly (Since March orso?) If enough donations are made to meet that then of course it can stay up. There is alot of information in here that's easier to find than googling everything. I hope some people can donate enough to help out.

Re: Only a few days left

Should I or anyone decide to donate, what is the proper way to do that now? I don't see anything that looks to be a for sure right way. Probably should be a big red flashing "DONATE HERE FOR 2019" button somewhere.

Have you considered moving MichiganMorels.com to facebook? That name is not taken, if it is allowed.

Also, I know the guy who runs a more general Michigan mushroom page on facebook. He might be willing to take on a new page/group to help. If not, you could consider encouraging people to join his existing group, if they are willing to use facebook. I've expanded my mushroom foraging tenfold or more by joining ID groups.

Happy to help if I can. I do have solid technical skills and contacts.

I think I can help, if you are willing to accept suggestions and potential influences. This site can likely be cloud hosted for under $20/month. And I know people who understand the following this site has and are willing to invest time in it. Let me know.

Re: Only a few days left

The young man who runs the Michigan Mushroom Hunters facebook page is named Suede Mobley. He has a keen interest in mushrooms of all kinds, and he is willing to help with this site if you wish. One of the keys would be to get it rehosted onto something cheaper. There isn't a tremendous amount of traffic, and there is no store, so that is why I said it could be hosted for under $20/month. I'm not sure about the rehosting cost, perhaps it could be a volunteer effort. Obviously the most important piece of this site is the membership information, which is confidential and must be protected, and then the forum content. I'm just talking here. Obviously Debbie has to decide what she wants to do with the site going forward. I would think the site name itself might have some value if she wanted to sell it, assuming the right buyer could be found.
