    No, I don't think that has any bearing on the cost, phil.

    Prateon, seems like a good idea to me as well. My other half has been looking into launching his own to sell his artwork an I have also thought about using to sell short stories. I can not always donate to things that I would like to but I would not mind writing content to help bring in money to keep WF going. I would have/like to think that other members would also donate writing, poetry, prose, music, art work we have a very diverse group with many tallents that could be used to bring in revenue. Just my two pennies worth.

    P.S I'm sorry to hear that Cran will be taking a step back but I would like to thank Sam, Pip and you Gumby for taking over.

    My own funds are very short but I reckon I can chip in $5 -$15 most months, and maybe more if my work plans later this year come to fruition. If enough people make even a small donation, running costs need not be an issue. I realise that some on here are students and have zero or little income, but so long as people chip in something when they are able, this site should be fine.
    I intend to donate a small piece of writing eventually, but a competition organiser temporarily has rights to it which will return to me later. It's not a problem. It's what I agreed to when I didn't think I had a hope in hell of winning it.

    Please carry on enjoying WF as before. We want our community to grow and we are working towards improving our member experience rather than restrict it. I don't fully understand bandwidth but Kevin_L, our technical guru, would have it covered.

    Whether it's Patreon, or Kickstarter, every fundraiser site asks for a fee in percentage of raised funds (which I think is reasonable). We could gain visibility this way, and perhaps more writers will find us.

    In the meantime, every elephant needs food. So don't stay away from the forums, we are the food, but we can become caretakers, or even elephants ourselves.

    I see the thermometer has disappeared from the main page. Does this mean that we have made our target for March?

    Nooo, there was a problem with their website and we had to remove the link. We are looking for another thermometer or similar widget if anyone has any ideas

    No, though we are just short of it. What happened was a technical problem with the website we got the thermometer from, so we just disabled it until we can correct it.

    ETA: Jinx, Pip!

    Sorry to hear that.
    I'm wondering if there is a piggy bank version somewhere online. I just know Pip would love that.

    Can't find a piggy bank, but we were forced to install a different thermometer. What do you all think? It is minimalist, yes?
