    OK, y'all. The moment of Troof. Check out the forum wrapped here:
    http://www.gotmead.com/index.php?opt...smf&Itemid=103

    It looks ok on my laptop at 1024x768 in both FF and IE.

    Feedback please.(and I promise not to get pissy)

    Known issue: The 'sticky' posts have a background that is too dark grey under the green posts - I'm digging for the CSS that is creating that and will change it. Would those of you with color blindness or bad eyesight give me some ideas where you need the color changed to make it ok to read?

    Thanks!

    Alright everybody time to throw down the Gauntlet. No promises to do so etc., I challenge every newbie or long standing member to pull out their checkbook (or use paypal) and make out a check to Vicky for $25 as they read this. I also challenge everybody on this forum to not make or read another post until they have committed their $25. When you do... post here to keep this link at the top of the new postings.

    make sure to put 'GM subscription' on there so you'll remember later! (and so I will know its that and not for the e-book or something else...)

    If just a few do, we'll gain a month or so. If everyone kicks in, we'll gain a lot more time, which gives me time to push more ads to those who *can* kick in more (and for them its business, not pleasure like for y'all).

    Hall of Famers so far (if I've missed you, don't panic, I'm digging through 4 months of Paypal stuff to make sure I get everyone):

    Thanks to you *all*! We get over 60,000 visitors a month here, and my goal is to get at *least* 1,000 of them to sign up. In a perfect world, I would get 3,000 patron signups, and could quit doing anything *but* Gotmead.

    But, 1,000 will ensure that GM will be online for years to come.

    Thankyouthankyouthankyou!

    Hey Vicky... what are the chances of getting the Devil Icon up top, maybe replacing the Standard Smiley. I'm sure would get a lot more use from your members than or

    Geez I guess I have been absent from gotmead for a while. I didn't realize how serious things were for Vicky. I have just recently got back into the old habit of checking gotmead daily some times more than that, and catching up on things I have missed here in the last 5 or 6 months. I am a rather new homeowner and things had been really tight for me for the last 2.5 years, but I donated last year what I could afford. But luckly things have turned around for me and I am now in a position to pony up. Plus my gotmead shirt is totally trashed and I need a new one. I see some homebrew supplies are getting sold here now and I will start checking here for things I need before I check other sites where I usually purchase supplies at. Besides subscribing and clicking on ads, which I will do for now on, what else can I do? Fundraisng sounds like a good idea.
    Here is an idea which may have been posted already, but I haven't read all the posts on this thread yet, and this may be more trouble than it is worth, but. How about a gotmead.com mead competition? With all the proceeds from entrance fees going to support gotmead.com. I monitor other homebrewing forums and see gotmead being referenced alot, even when I am not doing the refrencing. Gotmead is an authority on the subject. With so few mead competitions gotmead could grow to be one of the most important competitions. I know if it was in my vacinity I would donate my time and I am sure their are other gotmazers who would do the same. I am probably going to lose sleep tonight trying to brainstorm fundraising ideas, which seems kind of difficult for a website but hey its a challenge I am up to losing sleep over!
    This is to valuable of a resource for me to go to one day and get the dreaded website can't be found page!
