    Default Attention all forum members, please read. Problem solved, but still important!

    ***EDIT*** The money has been raised. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and also thanks to everyone who wanted to but couldn't for some reason. I'm adding this to the top of this post because the post in which I mentioned that we made it might get missed in several pages of posts.

    As you all know, this forum is privately run without ads. No attempt has ever been made to monetize this site. The last few years of hosting were paid for by the generous members who donated money in a fundraiser, I believe this was over 5 years ago.

    Today I got an email invoice from URLJet, our hosting service. This invoice was unexpected (We had several years paid, and truthfully I lost track of how many years were paid for). Unfortunately URLJet did not give me any advance notice - the invoice came today and is due for Oct 29. The amount of the invoice is $469.94 for two more years hosting. This presents a major problem because I do not have the money, and I don't have the time to organize a fundraiser. I don't even remember my PayPal credentials, for Pete's sake.

    I am at a loss for what to do. Christmas is coming, so there is no extra money. I don't have the time, nor the skill, to move the forum to a new host. Use of the forum has dwindled significantly so I'm not even sure it'd be worth it (of course it'd be worth it, but I'm just freaking out). I'd hate to see this forum disappear, as it is really the only resource for our beloved foxes.

    I really don't know what to do. And time is of the essence to figure something out. Need help, bad (not money help, but suggestion help). I would even be open to transferring ownership of the site to another member, so long as I was confident that new owner was a true enthusiast who would keep the spirit of the site as it is.

    Can we throw out a suggested amount that would be acceptable by the members. If some members are so inclined, they may be in a position to give more.
    The donate button is a good idea as well.
