A while ago, I told the board that online advertising revenue was under assault by adblockers and other things, and I was contemplating making some areas of Gatorchatter pay areas in order to take up some of that slack. After a lot of thought I have decided to shelve those thoughts and keep Gatorchatter just as free as ever. However, I received some great advice in that thread, and some of it stuck in my head. It was suggested that once or twice a year I simply have some kind of fundraising window to give people the opportunity to donate to the site if they are so inclined. And that’s why we’re here. Now, this is not a request for free handouts. I am resurrecting some things I’ve done in the past, and that is giving t-shirts and other items away in exchange for donations. Unlike prior years, these items will be made to order, so after the window closes, I will be ordering them online to all the specifications that are given to me. There are several items that have never been offered before Before I get to those items, I want to make something clear. This group of people has shown their generosity to me many different times in the past, and you have no idea how much it’s appreciated. I don’t want ANYONE to think they are obligated to donate, or feel guilty for not doing so. You contribute plenty just by showing up here every day.
