Frank Posted December 31, 2021 Report Share Posted December 31, 2021 Thank you very much to all who have contributed to the funding of our forum this year and in all the previous years! AS TO THIS YEAR, 2022: Every time I sign on to our Forum the first thing I check is who is currently online. Over 90% of the viewers are "guests". Many of our original and early members have left or visit only occasionally. This is not really a surprise; there has always been an "ebb and flow" to what group of plants are popular and being sought out in any given year. The "tide is clearly out" on ant-plants right now. I intend to keep this Forum alive and accessible because there is so much information and so many exceptional photos of ant-plants that have accumulated here. I invite all our members and guests to contribute to this endeavor as well. With our monthly fee to "Invision" being only $20 it should not “break the bank” for most of us to pitch in and fund a month or two. This small amount is keeping the fabulous photos and information we have accumulated here available to the entire world via the internet. To fund a month, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name you want me to use for you in the chart below (or let me know if you prefer to be acknowledged as “anonymous” or perhaps as "guest"). I will email you back with a paypal address for you to send your donation to. Thank you very much for your contribution. First in line to contribute this year is Shoal Creek Succulents, a USA grower selling on eBay and Etsy with excellent reviews and feedback. Thank you very much! Yesterday, Jan. 3rd, was a great day! Two of our members stepped forward to fund a month of the forum. Thank you very much Jules and also Marcel Van Den Broek!! Your support is appreciated! Once again Ken Howell has funded 2 months of the Forum. This is the 5th straight year Ken has done this for us!!!!! You are a superstar Ken, Thank you very much! Maxwell Solomon was inspired to contribute here after he made some recent buys from Andreas's Carnivorous Plant Shop and was impressed with how much additional information and photos he found about those plants here. Glad you found us helpful Maxwell! Thanks a bunch for your contribution! July, August and September were funded by me, Frank Omilian, the Forum Administrator. I can't be asking each and every one of you to fund the forum and not do it myself! So today I was doing some desk work and watching the leaves fall (Michigan, USA) when I got an email from a long time member who wanted to anonymously fund the last 3 months of the forum's cost for this year! WOW, yes please! And thank you so much. Your generosity is much appreciated! Thank you to Mr. Anonymous and all who have made their mark in 2022 by stepping up and helping with the forum funding. MISSED YOUR CHANCE? The posting for "2023 Forum Donors" will be on this page soon.
