typo alert :)

That aside, I think this might be a viable model to fund the site maintenance fee. This forum is a great resource for information on all aspects relating to these plants. It certainly deserves its patrons support.

One thing that could sure be fantastic would be offering "auctions" of plants on here for site funding. I have seen other forums fund their fees in this manner and there are usually bids in excess of the item value to help support their given forums. Just an idea.

Again, I think Frank has come up with a simple, elegant, crowd-sourced "fix" that avoids any real P&L implications for the forum administrator/s. Selling plants to fund a few Benjamins' worth of annual maintenance fees would seem to be more trouble than its worth, since a price overage might be technically construed as income, no? I would hope that we get a rush of donors as people check into the site and see that it is user funded, ad that the bite is quite manageable for almost anyone. It would be nice to see it adequately funded for the next few years, not just the next few months...
