    2006 Holiday Tip Jar For The APUG Moderators..

    Hi All,

    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

    Moderators: I think you do a great job of facilitating the free flow of information while controlling the anarchy of the internet with the lightest of touches. Thanks, happy holidays, and best wishes.

    Well, I'm in and I do appreciate what they do, but I hope Sean will council them, when he distributes this, not to squander it on liquor, camera equipment or other dangerous drugs.
    Happy Holidays.

    I've added to the fund but mine is conditional

    1. David buys some nappies/diapers. He's gonna need them!
    2. Ole buys some reinforcement for his table to keep all his lenses on!
    3. Mr Callow buys some wax for his moustache tips as they're looking a bit ragged

    Happy holidays guys and thanks for the work

    Cheers

    Great idea. If they were in one place we could buy 'em all a beer as well. Hope to meet you folks some day. Until then, THANKS!

    Done!

    Merry Christmas Guys! I wish that I could do more, but times are tight this year... Even GAS means to sell one thing to get another! I run a local website with forum and understand and sincerely appreciate the work that goes into making something popular on the net work efficiently. Keep up the good work!!!
