Fnarr and I have run the forum for two years now, and we've decided it's time to ask for a little help towards the running costs, which are 115 per year.

We think a voluntary annual contribution of 5 per person would be more than sufficient. If you would like to make a donation, simply PM me.

Erm, I'd really like to know who that anonymous payment was from, so that I can thank you and also because I'm a tiny bit of a control freak.

If it was you, please send me a PM. Thanks. Very Happy

We've had another anonymous donation of 20, which is listed as
CH'CH ST LIVERPOOL (presumably your bank branch?)
Many, many thanks to whoever this is from. Please let us know if it's you. No-one has owned up to the previous anonymous donation yet, either. Rolling Eyes

If you're making a donation, I'd really appreciate it if you gave me some idea who it's from by putting your name in the 'reference' column.

Great excitement! Wob and Del have both pledged a fiver each, so that brings us to within 10 of our target!

Yeeeheee!

Thanks, everyone. What a bunch of REAL TWITS you all are! Very Happy

This means that if we manage to make any money from the TWITS anthologies we could either carry it over towards next year's running costs, or we could offer it as prize money in a competition. How cool is that?!

Yet another anonymous donor has just donated 10. Very Happy

That takes the total received to date to 120, and the total pledged to 125!

I'm speechless. (And that doesn't happen very often.)
