    Hi All,

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

    Our volunteer moderator team: David A. Goldfarb, Jd Callow, Ole, SuzanneR and JBrunner. APUG's unsung heroes who work hard 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.

    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:

    http://photocentric.gostorego.com/donations/donate-to-us-in-1-increments-9.html?options=cart (scroll down and change Qty for donation amount, also be sure to state "tip jar" in the purchase comments.)

    Thanks!
    Sean

    P.S. Last years info can be found here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum38/99369-2011-holiday-tip-jar-apug-moderators-2.html
    Last year we managed 18+ donations totalling $500

    I'll go first. Anyone who can put up with me deserves a generous tip...

    Definitely deserving of a generous tip from me also (and for exactly the same reason Ken gave!). I hope a "token gesture" will convey the sentiment instead, though.

    Thank you to everyone who does such an amazing job keeping this site up and running smoothly and have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

    Sincerely,
    Molli
