    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/do...l?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/forum38/113186-2012-holiday-tip-jar-apug-moderators-2.html
    Last year we managed 29 donations and I've rounded it up to $600US

    I've just tossed something into the tip jar - thanks for all that everyone does to keep this site operating optimally -- and politely!

    FYI, on Paypal the payee comes up as "Moderator Tip Jar 2010" -- that might confuse people who are expecting to be making a payment in 2013.

    Thanks to all.

    But wondering where John Callow is hiding - is it something to do with the Detroit Redwings?

    Thanks to all who have donated so far (and Happy new Year!). I'll let it run until the 15th since it got a late start.

    Thank you all for the nice tip, really appreciate it. And also appreciate that moderating here is made easier by you good folks. Well, except for the occasional spammer.

    Cheers!

    so late...

    sean,

    just saw this 9 months late!!! i think it's first time i ever looked at the system announcements...

    i will support this year, but i'm wondering how many others missed it... or am i the only one with a narrow focus or non-standard way of enjoying apug?

    There were several posts in the announcements that should show up in yur "new posts", unless you have the announcements forum on ignore. There would also be a site wide yellow banner in the last few days. Maybe you weren't around at the time.
