We tend to take getting things for free for granted these days.

Slotblog has a real person behind giving us this meeting space.

I donated today. Maybe some of you could find it in your heart to hit the donate button and show your appreciation.

I agree, Mike. It never ceases to amaze me the number of posts made by individuals who don't contribute a nickle to keeping Slotblog running. For an example, right at this minute there are four people on here who have made over 13,000 (thirteen thousand) posts and yet have offered no financial help at all. This is not an unusual statistic, unfortunately.

Simple appreciation for us having a place to meet and discuss slot cars, racing, cooking, and fishing!!!

 

St Judes is a very worthy charity. Very worthy.

I'm curious where that information is garnered from?

Tim,

 

Not sure you can see the 'who's online' data on a cellphone, but if you're on a computer, you see this list at the bottom of the home page.

If you click on any member's name, you get a screen where this and other info is shown.

Now, Don has no way of knowing if a member has donated privately or not. What he's saying is that the members he is referring to are not subscribers, as indicated by their names not being shown in purple.

 

BTW, Tim, the stats in the second screenshot are yours. Thanks for supporting this asylum!

A follow-up... at 7:30 on a Friday night there are five members online with a total of a little over 18,000 (yep, the comma is in the right place!) posts made and nary a nickel in the pot.

 

Come on guys, help out a little...

Unless one is singled out, it's no more harrassment than YouTube Premium ads or the "timeouts" they have on Public Television...

Ron, if 3.8 cents US a day is really beyond your financial resources, please let us know so I can start a GoFundMe page for you to keep you in tires and braid.
