For those of you that have used the Amazon.com link to help support the site over the last few years, we really appreciate it, however I was made aware that they have cancelled that account and withheld payment for the last 2 months due to what they consider a breach of the associates agreement. Apparently, telling people to bookmark the hyperlink is somehow considered as against their rules, and thus, here we are.
This message is for two reasons:
1 - I've re-applied for a new Associates account and hope to get that approved within the next month or two. Once approved, I will have to be careful about how I ask for you to use the link and support the site, but if you've bookmarked the link in the past, please edit those to the new one once it's published. I'll also have it listed in the "support us" section.
2 - I haven't brought up donations for a while because the Amazon funding helped to at least keep us near the total monthly spend on hosting and hardware costs, however since we lost two months (including the largest amount from Christmas), we're now woefully over budget moving forward. Currently for the July 2016 - July 2017 fiscal year, we've received $1,620 of the $3,500 it takes to run the not-for-profit community.
For those that have donated over the years, thank you very much for helping support us. For everyone else, any donation you could make would be greatly appreciated so we can minimize the personal costs for ownership to keep us afloat.
Thanks for everyone's understanding and support. Go Hawks
