Help Support JBoard!

Postby alietr » Mon Oct 17, 2011 4:26 pm

As I've mentioned, I've been paying for the board's server space and another month is due shortly. It's not exactly a huge financial burden at $5/month, but if people would like to voluntarily contribute and help out, I would appreciate it. So here is what I am proposing ... when the rent comes due, so to speak, I will post here and ask for a contributor to pay for the coming month. That person will be the official JBoarder of the Month. The title comes with a special parking space in front of the grandiose JBoard World Headquarters (in a rococo style), which is conveniently located next to Sony's studios in Culver City. You also get a plaque in the lobby, and the entire Jboard staff stands and cheers you when you walk into the JBoard cafeteria.

So here's how I'd like to work it ... if you're interested in contributing, be the first one to reply in this thread after I make a "Rent Due" post. I would really prefer that you volunteer to pay for only one month so as to distribute the contributions more evenly. If you see that your reply was first, then contact me to get me $5 (PayPal is probably easiest). With all this money we're raking in, we may have to re-incorporate in the Caymans.

Many thanks in advance.

And by the way, the rent is coming due for November.

Congratulations to the JBoarder of the Month for November 2011. Perhaps someone with some pull around here can arrange for special recognition in or near your avatar. --Bob

Perhaps not the avatars, but I think Administrators can give people titles. Yours, for instance, is "Site admin." Perhaps you can give the current JBoarder of the month an appropriate title, such as "JBoarder of the Month." --Bob

I just saw it... waaaaay up at the top of the page, on the JBoard Banner, it says RandyG is the JBoarder of the Month. (Join the JBoarder of the Month Club, and have a new JBoarder sent to your door every month! Hehehe... okay, I made that last part up.)

So does that mean you're volunteering? :D

Sure! (Though I got the impression it was going to be a new post looking for volunteers every month. yes?) But heck, yeah - JBoard's sorta like brain crack, and I need to support my habit... hehehe.

That's how I read the post above. The first reply after the monthly request wins that month's honors. --Bob

I was referring to her "new JBoarder to your door every month" idea, actually. :)

Hee! I was wondering if that's what you meant. The shipping charges would be killer, though. :lol:

You know, if The Call ever comes, I'll hold you to that, a parking spot next to the Sony studios (precluding having to take a cab there (well, for the wife and kids, I fully intend to make use of the famous "contestants shuttle")) could come in real handy! :)

A parking space in a rococo style. Now that's class.

I got it. It's called a "Rank", and Randy now proudly displays his rank with his avatar. And all for $5. Such a deal!

As long as you're giving out ranks, can I be the village idiot?

I'll keep that in mind, but everyone now has one assigned ... comments are welcome.

You can see them by going to Members, clicking on the posts column, and then clicking it again to reverse sort it.

One more thing while we're at it ... I'm still looking for a knowledgeable, trustworthy regular who would like to have admin privs. My ex-wife has taken to standing across the street shaking a bag of gummi bears, and there's no telling how much longer I can go without getting hit by a bus. So it would be nice to have someone else have the keys to the executive suite in the rococo JBoard palace. But no, you can't use the executive washroom. I have my limits.
