    2011 Holiday Tip Jar for the APUG Moderators

    Hi All,

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

    Our volunteer moderator team is: David A. Goldfarb, Jd Callow, Ole, SuzanneR and JBrunner. They are APUG's unsung heroes who work behind the scenes to ensure our community remains a place we all enjoy.

    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 of donations). I will let this run until the new year, 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:

    http://www.apug.org/tipjar.html

    Creditcard instead of paypal here:

    Thanks!
    Sean

    P.S. Last years info can be found here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum38/84506-2010-holiday-tip-jar-apug-moderators-3.html
    Last year we managed 18+ donations totaling $460

    A safe and Merry Christmas to Sean and all of the APUG moderators. I could only pop in a pittance by comparison with what you all deserve for your hard work and dedication to this site (and helping to educate novices like myself!) but please accept my gratitude in lieu of the millions I didn't have to pass on :smile:

    Sean, I'm not sure how near you or your extended family might be to Christchurch, but I do hope you're all safe and well!

    Take care,
    Molli

    Contribution made...

    Thanks everyone for all your efforts. This is still the best site on the Web. (Although Shorpy is always knocking at that door...)

    Sorry about the delays. We're in the middle of moving house and decided to wait until we get to Dunedin (currently on the road, in and out of motels). I should have all this updated by the 15th. Thanks again to all who donated!
