Myswag's Bank Balance
« on: May 07, 2020, 01:04:25 PM »
Jillsy what would be the chances of displaying this information on an ongoing basis (maybe in the Merchandise section) as a sticky or pinned to the top somewhere so that we can all be reminded and all easily see how things are travelling financially? Possibly also display in the same page how we are travelling in regards to the required target that is needed to keep the forum going. That way we get a visual reminder and can then decide to throw a few bucks as we wish to help

Just a reminder that, contrary to popular belief, Myswag is privately owned (and privately funded when the "kitty" needs a top up) by Brett. Businesses don't pay to advertise in the Showroom Section and people who advertise in the Classifieds Section are not charged to do so etc. In recent years we have had a couple of Premium Sponsors come on board which has been a MASSIVE help financially however server fees, accountancy fees, tax, restocking of Member Stickers and Coolers etc all adds up.  If you enjoy your time here and are keen for Myswag to have a long life, you are more than welcome to make a donation to the Server Fund through the Myswag.org Online Store (see the picture below). All donations, great and small, will be more than appreciated and will be directly responsible for helping to keep Myswag online.  Just think, if every member donated just $1 each, it would be enough to pay the Server Fees for 11 years




Of course, you could also purchase some Myswag.org Merchandise from our great range :cheers:.

Have updated the figures again...thanks Swaggers!!!  You guys are awesome!

Just a reminder though...please DO NOT DONATE OR DON'T FEEL OBLIGATED TO DONATE if you are under financial stress from COVID-19!!! 

I know of at least one Swagger who has donated this month who had their hours cut but donated anyway. The donation was gratefully received Mate (you know who you are) however it really wasn't expected  :cheers:

Figures have been updated Folks  ;D

Now I won't name him as I have already been in touch with him privately to express our thanks and absolute gratitude for his generosity but there is a certain Swagger who has been donating weekly over the past few weeks and has donated a significant amount towards the Server Fees. To you Swagger, thank you again  :cup:.   That means we now have 3 Swaggers who make regular payments to the Server Fund (2 Swaggers do it Monthly and this latest Swagger weekly).  Thank you gentlemen, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I hope 2021 is kicking off ok for everyone. It is my absolute hope that 2021 doesn't say to 2020, hold my beer!

I am once again up to date with the figures Folks.  Thank you so very much to everyone who has been donating to the server fund and/or purchasing merchandise - your support is truly wonderful and wonderous  :cup: :cup: :cup:

Brett has been in touch with Firefox (our resident Tech Guru) as we have been advised by our current server host that our server hardware is at end of life so we are looking at swapping over to something else.  This will hopefully also bring down the server costs as current costs are quite frankly killing us  :'( :'( :'(

I am so sorry that it has been so long between updates - has been hectic (as it always is) here at Myswag.org HQ - I am working permanent night shift, have been studying externally and doing one prac day for my study each week as well as trying to keep up with normal Wife, Mother, Daughter, Friend stuff.

It is so great to see new Members registering each week!  Brett, myself and the kids are hoping to organise a little mini break some time in the not too distant future (just trying to get leave approved for the same time as each other) so hopefully that comes to fruition.

I hope everyone is doing OK. 

Take Care X
