Renee, just saw your website, very nice! You are talented and I know you will go far!

Thank you Christine. Do you have a website I could venture in to? Thanks for the comment you've made my day!

ON the edge of the insane feral.
Anyone know what the little green rectangle is under our post count? Not the green dot that says you are signed in to AW. I notice a few people have more than one.

right here, silly
Shawn, the green squares are rep point thingies and I'm pretty sure only Ray has more than one of them (he has apparently been bribing someone - possibly many someones <ducking, running>).

Only Admin (Jenna and CC, on this board) can see how many points anyone else has. The rest of us, even supermods, can only see our own point total. Anyone can pass their cursor over someone else's green square to see what their general standing is, and on the member list, if you sort by rep, you can see who's at the top and so on.
(Me, I'm only 17 points from being spectacular :banana: !)

Hiya! We're covering the expenses, which is great! Yes, my partner (Bob) added the Google ads. It does bring in a little extra revenue (we get a few cents when people click on the links). Hope no one minds.

We're now getting 1.5 million page views per month (not just on the forums, but on the main absolutewrite.com site, too), so our hosting bills do get kind of crazy. But our benefactors make a HUGE difference!

I've been making it a point to click 3 or 4 ads per day. I don't "buy" whatever the site's selling, I just click the ad, see where it takes me, then come back here. It only takes a minute or two and it just "makes good sense." ;)

Hey guys! I made the list of benefactors alphabetical now so it'll be easier for me to keep track. Did I leave anyone out? Please let me know!

While the MO is in the mail Jenna (its small but sincere), I would like to add that if I win AW Idol, get accepted by an agent leading to a publisher, and get a nice advance, I hereby promise to donate $500 to keep AW's forum going.

That should last about a month right Jenna?

Of course should I not win AW Idol, but still get agent=>publisher and a nice advance, I promise to do the same thing.

You'll take 8% net of a dollar too Jenna? :ROFL:

I'll send another donation next month.

I love the site, people, and informative boards.

And all the girls a purty!

Hey! Just a quick note-- for those who donated by PayPal, please don't be disturbed if you get a rather terse note at the end of the "subscription period." I hear it says something like, "Renew or you'll lose your access!" That's another one of those automatic things that I definitely didn't write, and I'm searching for the language in my admin panel so I can rewrite it. Sorry about that.

Chang, the men here ain't so bad-lookin' either... ;)

That reminds me, don't reply to just anything that says it comes from PayPal, or from your ISP, or from a bank. Phishing schemes...

I've received e-mails demanding passwords and such for PayPal and eBay, even though I don't have an account at either place.

I added more people today and I think I'm up to date (let me know, please, if I left you off the list!).

And a reminder: If you contribute by mail, please include your username here and/or your e-mail address so I can thank you and give you "benefactor" status. Thanks!
