    Hi All,

    It's that time of year again same system as last year:

    Our volunteer moderator team are: David A. Goldfarb, Jd Callow, Ole, SuzanneR and JBrunner. The smooth running of APUG could not happen without them. In spite of 1,000's of new members (often 700+ a month) and the increased activity that brings, they still manage to help our community flourish.

    Feel free to make a small contribution to them as a thank you. I've included a paypal link to this post which will let you select the amount you like (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 contributions between them. I will be putting in $150.00 to get things rolling.

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

    Here is the paypal link:

    Creditcard instead of paypal here:

    https://www.apug.org/apugcc/home.php?cat=2

    Thanks!

    Sean

    P.S. Last years info can be found here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum38/69164-2009-holiday-tip-jar-apug-moderators.html

    Last year we managed 20+ donations totalling $630

    This is the best damned photo site on the web, watched over by the best damn group of moderators on the web - period.

    (Uh oh... Am I busted for bad language...?)

    I think I missed it last year... almost this too, as I didn't understand what "tip jar" meant....

    which must have made me miss it...

    Think about that Sean! I am not that bad in english, but maybe others non english speaking members will miss it too?

    anyway. Payment done with thanks and a happy new year.

    Even for some English speaking people I could for-see some confusion. IIRC, "tip" can have a very different meaning in England (think "dump").

    Hi All,

    The final numbers:

    18 donations at $310
    1 from me at $150

    total this year = $460

    We have 1 moderator bowing out as they have not been available for a while. So this will be divided between 4 moderators.

    Thanks to all who have made a donations, I know times are tough these days.

    Sean
