I unfortunately got bad news from Ning this week. It seems that Ning is going to raise the rates on hosting our site. Not just raising it a little but actually almost double what we were paying effective in October. Fortunately we pay our bill annually and so it will not affect us until next July, but it will affect us. I don't see how I can ask the membership for $600 every year to keep the site going. $300 was manageable but $600 is a little steep. I'm not sure what options are left to keep GAOH alive. Maybe a bi-annual drive where we try and raise half the funds around Christmas time and the rest in July? Post a permanent donation button on the front page and hope we have enough resources come July? Move to another site if we could find one? That would probably mean losing most of what we have archived here though. I don't know the answer at this point but I'm willing to have some input. If anyone has some viable options let me know.
