    Who donates to the Donation thing?

    So it seems we are close to not making this month's end for our ISP. Which brought up a realization, why should DP's have to donate money when we have like a hundred MODs. Maybe a MOD privilige should also be to pay for the ISP?

    because mods aren't the only ones that utilise DP, so they shouldn't be the only ones that pay for the privilege

    So you want the people who do the work to make the site work to our benefit also have to pay for the site? Do you realize how stupid that sounds?

    No I don't. Do you know how stupid your avatar looks? Besides, it seemed like a good question that the people with the power should foot the bill. Which is what is practically happening in society with the rich paying for everything the governmen does.

    if you want to look at it like a society, everyone should have to pay to use the site, and then the mods should get paid from that money for supplying services to the site.

    But we live in the great Ol' USA where half of the pop lives of the other half. So since many of us are poor we need to depend on the rich and powerful and that would be the MODS and Reverend Hellhound.

    A hundred Mods? There is the owner, 10 Moderators, 5 Dungeon Masters, and 2 Bartenders on the DP Staff. By my ciphering, that is 18 people.

    We all volunteer our time, talents, and energies to operate and manage this board.

    Nevertheless, I believe almost all Staff members are DP Donators. Some are also multiple DP Donators.

    It costs money to operate a board of this size and complexity 24/7 365 days a year. Member Donations significantly help defray our monthly operating expenses. All Donations are strictly voluntary and are greatly appreciated. From my perspective, DP is a great bargain. It's always here for me and is one-stop shopping... fun, serious, enlightening, and challenging. No matter what mood I am in, there is always something here to pique my interest or bring a big smile to my face
