    What happened to the site? I went to the site this a.m. for my daily fix -- I mean to check in with folks and I found a banner proclaiming that I was banned for life or something to that effect -- figured I had finally overstepped the prim and proper boundaries with my tale of the two lovers . . . at least until I called Hollora and she said that she also was experiencing some issues . . . well, I mean to say, the website was down for her as well.

    The story was too exciting and the internet just couldn't handle it. Between the icky PDA couple and whatever might have been hitching a ride on you after all that bushwacking, I had to take a shower after I read it!

    I haven't talked to Rick, but I suspect that we have enough people visiting that we are bumping up against the bandwidth limits and Rick is pitching in to raise the limits when it happens. It was out yesterday morning too. Hope we can get some coin raised for the auction coin.

    Rick sent me a quick email stating the suspended account issue was the result of a misunderstanding while fixing some server issues.

    However, we do need to do our part to help this site stay up and pay it's own way. I think this site is a great service to the community and a nice place for us to share our ideas. Donations are always welcome, and if anyone has an idea on how to otherwise help raise funds, speak up!

    Didn't we try and do this a few months ago, and rick told us that there was no need to do so?

    I think he was saying there hopefully is no need to place out site on it's own servers, which would be expensive, we should still pay our share for the space and bandwidth where we are now.

    yeah, but rick said that there's no need to do that,

    and that he was making ends meet with what he had from donations, and he hasn't posted yet that he needs anything. and from his other post on the last thread about this topic..

I can report to the board members if there is any ammount over what we are trying to raise here and we can decide what to do with it.
    I'm sure that if he needs, he will ask, and we shall respond, but I think that before we hit the panic button and flood Rick with our concerns, I think we should wait and see what he has to say about the situation

    I'm not trying to flood the site with panic, I'm trying to get a few people to donate! Whether Rick is getting by or not, a few extra bucks is never a bad thing!

    I get irritated when I try to log on and can't. I also thought My account was suspended. I emailed Cache Maine and they let me know it was everyone that couldn't log on. For 3 days I got the BANDWIDTH issue and then the canceled account. I don't understand what all that means but if it's a $$$ issue ........
    JUST DONATE PEOPLE .... IT's 1 gallon of gas, 1 pack of cigarettes, 1 six pack. If we can't give up $5.00 to help keep this site UP and RUNNING on a Daily basis, Then how can we afford to cache ????? We get people spamming on here for FREE, and Insulting FFJ for free . If they had to be a donating member they couldn't bud in just to spam, etc....
    I don't want to piss anyone off,... again, but think about it, IT"S AN ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF !!!!!
    LOVE,
    Opalsns
