Our service renewal for the forums and gallery is due on 8/18, 69.95 for the forum and 30.00 for gallery, this allows us another year of support and updates (there is a new forum and gallery upgrade in the works), I will pay for this myself but also will accept any donations to help if you can, paypal is preferred but can also accept snail mail, please PM me or post here is you would like to help


I will also add a donation button sometime soon for those who wish to contribute to the hosting bill, my other forum is completely funded by member donations and as this forum becomes more popular and we grow it will cost more to run, but it will never be required, I will also work on the "member upgrade" over the next couple of weeks that will allow for some money into the site and benefit those who wish to ugrade but as always the site will remain free to join and participate

the calendar? i have not forgot about it, I will set something up so everyone can start submitting pics for it soon

malt of the month? anyone have ideas or suggestions for a monthly contest where one of our malts pics could be pictured on our main webpage (where maggies pic currently is) with a little info about them beside it ???

tshirts, mugs, stickers, etc? hopefully if i have enough money or can get more thru donations all also wanto have a proffessional site logo made that we could add to items that members could buy from our own store, SM merchandise aso to speak, with a split of the profits going to help the site and the rest going to a pet charity of our choice

I am also looking for your suggestions, ideas and feedback so let me here your thoughts.

Thanks,
Joe

This sounds like an excellent plan to me, Joe. We are all very grateful for the wonderful community you have generously provided - at both a financial expense and in terms of your time and efforts spent maintaining and upgrading the service. I'd certainly be happy to make a contribution to that.

My vote on a pet charity goes to Little Dog Rescue, the one's with Sophie's story.

That sounds like a wondeful plan!!! I love the idea of malt of the month, and the merchandise. I'm sure everyone is willing to donate.

Joe, all the ideas you put forth are excellent. I'd love to see the "premium" membership and all of the other ideas come to fruition.

I love the idea of some of the funds going to charity. I like the Little Dog Rescue idea but also another great group is Northcentral Maltese Rescue.

Thanks so much for providing this wonderful forum!!!

I was just thinking the same thing about malt of the month... I think it would be cute to submit pictures and rotate them on the cover
I, however, did not think how to select them so you have me thinking...

You could do a theme... maybe by the holiday in the month or something. we could dress our malts up and submit new photos... Could you set up a "vote" option for chosing a winner? Maybe someday you could have a messiest malt because thats the only one phoebe has a chance... that could be too silly for a front page though... like a summertime malt... or a snowy photo for the winter... new years... wow lots of themes... you could do a puppy month... you'd need a way to submit, right... or each participant could post in a monthly thread or something and vote by member name... lots of stuff to think of I guess. But I love the idea


I never go to the front cover, so you'd need a link on the forums page saying "check out the malt photo of the month!" or even have it on both places?

Set up that paypal button! I am good at that. soooooooooo easy!

thanks Joe
