Okay Gents – the site is just about done. I’ve asked the developers to make two more changes: 1) close up the spacing between the menu bars on the home page, and 2) allow for comment editing. Once I have some more time, I’ll update the links and advertising, but we’re open to more ideas if you have them. Let me know what else you’d like to see.
Thus, it’s time to ask for donations to cover everything. With the changes above, and a few more minor tweaks, the bill is going to be just under $1k. If we raise more than that I’ll use what’s leftover to buy some stock images for the site.
To facilitate payments, I’ve cleared out my Paypal account. If anyone requests it, I will gladly post screen shots of the account (and redact your email addresses) to show what has come in.
To make this easy, I’ve generated four payment links.

If you want to donate less or more, you can pull my Paypal address from the links above.
As a reminder, none of us get paid to maintain the site. My understanding is that Billfer makes enough from advertising to cover hosting and buy a beer every few months. I will disclose that three times in four years I’ve been sent Tigers related items, two of which we’ve in turn given out through the site. One time I kept a t-shirt and wore it. We then went on a 4-13 streak. The t-shirt was last seen in the Trinity River with a cinder block tied to it.
Thank you everyone for your contribution, participation, and feedback. The strength of this site lies in the intelligence and sophistication of the readers and their comments.
