PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase.

Currently it costs just short of $2,000 a year for hosting fees, and those fees are expected to make a big jump soon. (We have a lot of activity going on, and that requires a bigger database and more storage capacity). On top of that, various upgrades and bells and whistles that we enjoy come at an extra cost.

And, contributions have been falling off lately, so at present our forums are running at a deficit just keeping up with the hosting fees.

The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...
