WELCOME BACK!!!!

Post by heinzs » Sun Apr 30, 2017 4:04 pm

Thankfully we have found a phpBB maven, Mark D. Hamill, who has graciously and expeditiously repaired and upgraded our poetry "home" for us! We are eternally indebted to him for his expertise and speedy work in recovering us from 5 months of internet limbo. I cannot thank him enough! Please, anyone who may have need of support of this nature, he is the one I would send you to!

Hosting fundraiser: Every year, in January, our hosting fees are due for the year. We have covered these this year, but would appreciate any donation you may be able to make to help us pay for it. There is NO requirement to donate, just a request. I will never fault anyone who cannot or will not participate at the funding level. I will ALWAYS find the funds somewhere, but your involvement in this process helps solidify our poetry familia as an interdependent group of poets.

We are also seeking donations to help pay for the costs associated with repairing and upgrading the board to its present pristine and very nice new interface. Please PM me if you wish to donate any amount for any reason. Again, NO ONE will be penalized for inability or unwillingness to donate. This is a 100% voluntary offering.

Thank you all for your patience, and thanks to Mark for making our home available again.

Hello Heinzs, I will send some funds as soon as I can get my head on the right track. This is amazing work bringing the original I applaud all that have had a hand in the process. Take Care
Take me back, so far back, adjust this fate. Afeared lately of pen, in abscence of light. The fear I might stumble upon a plagiarized soul. Wipe this dark slate clean, regain my thought. Add the words that rekindle my depth of soul.

From: Summers Discontent 7-24-02

Sincerely

Michael J Pease

Thank you Heinz and Mark!

Hi Carol. We haven't set up a "donate" button yet... probably a good idea to do that. If you wish to donate to the cause you can paypal to my account heinzs@yahoo.com and you'll get credit for donating to PP upkeep. Thanks for the thought! :hearts:
