    Default VSALON Support: How to get it done

    Here is my simple plea. We have never and will never accept advertising or allow outside influence here at VSalon. There is a price for this and it is bore on the backs of folks who donate (donate button), Classic Classified sales give backs (generally accepted as a voluntary 1% of sales from the seller) back to Vsalon, Classic Classifieds yearly subscriptions and yearly/monthly donation subscriptions.

    The funds I manage are "just enough" to pay the monthly server tab and maintain a slush fund for software upgrades and paying electronic assassins to swat hacks. That is the bottomline which are never discussed openly and will not be a point for discussion. This is me being transparent (enough) for everyone to get a feel for what electronic and physical measures it takes to run a top notch operation like VSalon....nevermind the human capitol...that's for another installment ;)

    Here is the dealio. Everyone who has or will sell ANYTHING which goes for $100 or more should hit the donate button and give at least 1% of the sale. If you did not do that consider fixing that! We have never enforced this 'cause we are hippy mother fakers and believe in the goodness of people. Do the right fekkin' thing. If you dig what's being thrown down here hit the donate button and keep the lights on. If you HATE what we are doing here we are doing something right...hit the donate button.

    The monthly cost to run VSalon is quite modest and we have managed for many years to pay for everything via donations. As of today we are d@mn near running in negative numbers. This is the first time that has ever happened.

    Boom.

    xxooo, TT

    I don't use the classifieds much here but I have gotten much fun from this place and the people here.

    There's much value for the money here. Consider a small donation. A lot of small ones will keep the lights on.

    Closing in on day 1 of the VSalon fund drive. Man I hate it when NPR does this.

    I'll let you know how we are doing HERE.

    Day 1 - 1 month paid for with 5 hrs. to go eastern standard time THANK YOU to the 5 people who hit the donate button today.

    I'll get off your backs when we fund 12 months. Promise.

    Just donated an amount equal to three months of my Strava premium expenses. This place is more than worthy compared to that joint.

    Thanks to everyone who does everything behind the scenes to keep this place rolling.

    Got one coming through Josh, I'm hunting around for more stuff to add to the donation classifieds thread also.

    This place is awesome, the only cycling site I even bother with. I'll do everything I can to raise a bit of financial support.

    Thanks for what you do Josh, you have a good thing going here. Great admins, great wisdom, great crowd. The best.

    Josh,
    Is it better for you to have monthly donations or once a year?

    Done! Best cycling place on the internet, and, sadly, maybe even in my real life since I have no LBS or club anymore!
