Re: Donations

Hi everyone, ive noticed that Jeff has left the donations thread so that we cannot respond. I just wanted to say a word or two, so bare with me. I thought i would share a couple of thoughts that crossed my mind when i saw the posting. I hope Jeff isnt mad that i am sending this, and although im sure that many of you are aware that he is almost my brother in law, still please here me out. The site, number one is not a money making machine that alot of us would assume. Infact to my knowledge, it does not make money, period. Some of you that own your own sites are probably aware the amount of time and effort that goes into them. I know first hand that Jeff spends a minimal of two hours a day just doing downloads. I know this because he lives almost an hour aware, but when he visits, he is usually here the whole weekend, and completely takes over my system to do so. This does not include the personal responses to questions, and the encouragement that he gives in those responses. Simply put he cares. And this is the reason that i will personally make a donation to him, not because he is a friend. Also, as everyone is aware, the site went through several up grades. Not all of the upgrades could be handled by Jeff, and i know for a fact that there is more to come. In one thread Jeff joked around about having to pay out for some of the upgrades, but believe me, im sure no one is aware how much, and i was completely stunned myself. Why upgrade, it wasn't completely necessary, but again, here come the care factor. Im not begging here, im just sympathizing. I have seen it first hand. Just float around the web to various sites, you will soon find hundreds, if not thousands that have had update only within a year, maybe they havent even been done in several year!!! This site, is however daily, and for that, the hard work, compasion, and dedication to the subject, i applaud Jeff, and i hope as many of you, as I will support him not only with the site, but also the upcoming t.o. reptile show, and let him know that this isn't all for nadda. Remember, the money is going straight back as prizes, Jeff ive got the check book out.......let me know what to put in the blanks, luvyabuddy,shane

All donations will be going to buy the same photo hosting program that kingsnake is running... Donating members will be given extra space for free! so in the end it will all pay off! Thanks Grant! and YES i will get on making (or picking) a logo for the t-shirts!

Holy !!!!

And that makes $100 from a STUDENT!! And we all know that they never have any money. Believe me, I know!! If I ever make it to a Toronto expo, I got $50 too!!!

But I'll definitely be taking out a banner ad for a couple of months at the end of summer. I just gotta get Markus Jayne his money!!! I don't want my legs broken!! Ha ha, just kidding...

The only thing is ********...

Is that its in OUR best interests that this great site does grow and stay great. We have an opportunity to sell a lot of animals through this site and reach a lot of people in this country. That, and for many other reasons, is why people are eager to send ssnakess.com donations. Also, this community of yours seems to be growing by the day! Why not keep a good thing rolling eh?!

Im just glad to know that there are people out there that realize how good of a site this is, and that if you can spare, perfect, if you can't, the sentiment is there, and also fully appreciated, cheers to you all, shane.
