    If I had to pick and choose it would be monthly. Were we to have enough people throw in and equal the monthly tab it would be game over.
    If anyone really wants to know the approx. cost to run this place than send me a PM.
    Y'all are awesome

    BTW we are up to 3.2 months paid for as of 5pm est. Nice work :)

    In see that Mike. Perfect. Monthly subscriptions will do the trick. It is my intention to make sure Vsalon is self sustaining 'cause this alt left hippy will not be around forever to mind the store. Dig?

    We are so close to having 4 months paid for.
    Give $x/month, it only hurts 12 times.

    donated.

    took me a minute to find the 'donate button', which is up top, to the right of the 'forum' tab.

    It helps. Keep this going folks.

    We have 4 months paid for as of 6:30 pm est. Not bad.

    Huge thank you to a certain special donation from Japan. Brother, your kindness is felt deeply.

    This really is the coolest place on the web.

    One percet is bubkes and you know it. The number of sellers who actually step up and give back the 1% of sales > $100 is low. I plan to start kicking some arses.

    We are 5.4 months funded and THANK YOU, you know who you are, for the monthly subscriptions. We got two today so the months funded # I give is a bit low....if I account for this the number is 5.8 months funded (ish).

    Get on it yo.

    Great news.

    This is not pestering. This is friendly encouragement to help fund the upkeep of a place we all love and use on a regular basis.

    Let the stalking begin....

    No kidding, I'm very touched by the outpouring.

    Avoid lumps of coal, trust me you want to do this.

    WAY TO GET IT DONE SON. Thank you. I am remiss today failing to do some SHOUTING for donations (ick).
    -pom you make my job easier.

    It is official, we are up to 10 months of funding. When we hit 12 months the job is not over. The (cough) madness ends when we have enough small dollar subscriptions and people reliably giving back 1% of > $100 sales in classifieds.
