    Hi All,

    Going on the success from last years tip jar, it's been requested that we open it again. Same as last year:

    Our volunteer moderator team (David A. Goldfarb, Jd Callow, and Ole) do a GREAT job and are instrumental in the day to day running of APUG. They truly deserve a salary but unfortunately this is not possible yet.

    In the meantime I thought maybe some members would like to make a small donation to them as a thank you and a holiday gift. I've included a paypal button to this post which will donate $5.00US (and produce a flag in my account so I can keep track). I will let this run until New Years, post the final amount, then close the thread and split the donations between them. I will be putting in $150.00 to get things rolling. With any luck the guys will have enough for a nice dinner out & some left over for film

    Feel free to post a note in this thread stating you have contributed.

    Here is the paypal button to click:

    Thanks!

    Sean

    Hi Sean,

    If it's possible, perhaps you could change the setting to allow for user selected amounts above $5.00 (US)?

    I figure these guys are at least "worth" five bucks each so I had to donate three times! (BTW: At this rate, please do not add any more mods or it could get expensive! :wink: )

    OK, my $5.19 CDN has been tossed in!

    Thanks to the mods for their work. As a web worker, I see every day how community mods are the reason that amazing levels of knowledge and passion are directed appropriately to allow everyone, even noobs such as i, to make use of it all.

    Happy holidays and best wishes to the dudes with the white hats and traffic cones. Now, back to lurking and learning...

    So, Fintan arranged for each of you to get a Guinness; I say each of you buy a roll of film from my tips.

    Thanks, guys!
