    Default Donating or not?

    Hey Bruce, what would be your guess as to the percentage of new members you've seen this year that have joined as donating members?

    I would guess not even 10% but that's just my guess. I know my name is not Bruce...lol

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Sheesh! I'm just glad my name isn't Haffy! LOL!

    But to answer the question, I have no idea. I just see the new member notices. Perhaps Rick could tell you, but in my opinion, it's pretty small - less than the 10% Haffy suggested. I think Rick mentioned one time that we have 20-something "donating" members.

    Yeah that estimate was just wishful thinking on my part,probably only 1% if that.

    If I did it correctly, there are 34 donating members.

    Well, since we currently have 1605 valid members, that a "donating" rate of about 2% of ALL members! LOL!

    How sad,but I bet the percentages aren't much better for GC.com and their memberships either.

    True, but if you factor in how many regular visitors we have, it is a better percentage. Many 'members' are people who signed up to ask one question or to check on the coin or some other short term reason.

    Default Yikes!

    So if the other 1550 plus folks just kicked in 10 bucks, we'd have over $15,000 in the bank to do whatever. Just imagine what that kind of money could do to this organization-webgroup.
