OrangeMane Members' semi-annual PLEDGE DRIVE!
 
The semi-annual
OrangeMane Members' Pledge Drive!


The OrangeMane veterans know the drill, but for the 2008 newcomers, this is a Members' fund drive to help Taco John with the cost of keeping The OrangeMane up and running. Without contributions, TJ is on the hook for the full cost ... less some minimal pay-per-click funds. Taco would never ask for a nickel himself, but with the site growing so much and so fast year after year, and the costs going up, too (he moved us to a bigger, faster, and more expensive server last summer), it seems only fair we try to help out.

No pressure here, it's all completely anonymous unless you wish to make your pledge known. We suggest you "kick in" between $5 and $25 twice a year. Choosing the $5 amount means that for the cost of two fast-food meals a year, you can feel more a part of what goes on here, I know I felt that way ever since I started helping out a bit. Like many of you, this is my first stop on the net every day, and I spend three or four or more hours here every day. $10-$50 a year is not much to pay for that much entertainment/information.


Still can't decide? Let this good-natured Betty White pledge-drive warning from The Simpsons guide your decision:

Thanks Buff. I appreciate it. I just dropped $800 on server fees in January and would be most grateful if I could recover half that (especially in this economy).

Much appreciated. :)

Wish it could be more Issac, but alas...

Thanks for the generosity folks. I just wanted to report that since Casey started this thread, we've received $200 in donations from 6 different members. That's a great help on the pocket book. I pay $800 every six months in January and in July to keep this place running, and the ads only cover about half of the costs, so every nickle counts.

So 5 other guys contributed $199.90?

What you don't know m'Lord, is that I get 2.1 cents every time you do!

LordHelmchen 03-05-2009 03:29 PM

I demand a 2.1 cent refund! :afro:

GoHAM 03-05-2009 04:16 PM

Money well spent, I truly love this place.

Meck77 03-05-2009 04:18 PM

Is stimulus money available to messageboards?

Taco John 03-05-2009 04:20 PM

We could have a lot of fun at tailgates with a 30 Billion dollar kitty!

FADERPROOF 03-05-2009 07:11 PM

Don't post as much as I used to, but I stop in a lot still and Taco John and I go way back, anything to help an old friend out who has been more than kind to me.

Screw the tailgate I would get 30 Billion singles and go to Shotgun Willies.

In for my $25 semi annual.
Keep it going TJ!

Natedogg 03-06-2009 09:01 AM

Nice Work BB. TJ, your site is great. I hope you keep it up forever. My broncos friends often wonder how i always know the breaking news, get the best scoops (sometimes inside info), and know when to call bull****.

Especially in this turmultous time in Broncoland, the mane is THE resource.

Wish I could have given more.

And Buff, nice work starting the thead at the beginning of the month so i didnt spend all my mone on beer yet. haahahaha

Broncobiv 03-06-2009 04:15 PM

Donation sent. Thanks TJ!
