Decision Time!
« on: August 18, 2019, 01:44:52 PM »
Just stopping by to see how things are going now that the board is self-governing.  Looks like everyone is doing a good job of it!  :tada:   When I first changed the format to do-it-yourself, I said I would decide later if I would continue to keep the forum running or not.  Apparently, all is going well! 

My domain fees need to be paid by the 23rd of this month which is an annual expense.  I've decided to go ahead and pay for it so the board can stay on line.  Everyone has done such a great job of keeping this a nice place to hang out that I think it's worth spending the money to keep it on-line.  So... Enjoy!!!    :praise22:

Great, MaryLou! I would hate to see the forum go. I don't know of any other place where I could go to do and share my Affinity creations. In fact, if the forum went, I would probably stop doing any graphics at all, and I really enjoy vectoring away!

I'm like Lynn, currently I am not visiting any other forum and so if this one closed I don't think I would be nearly as active in trying to draw things and participate.  So it is with a very grateful heart that I read this for the coming year.  I will be happy to contribute to the cost of maintaining this one if you will allow it.

 :thanks06: MaryLou for keeping the forum going.  I agree with the others, if this forum wasn't here, I would not play as much as I do.  This group is so friendly and encouraging and fun!!   :animal04:

Linda, I LOVE your cow!!!   It's adorable!!   Thanks to everyone for offers to contribute but there's no need for that. I just paid for domain renewal yesterday and I can manage the rest.  As long as people are enjoying it, and as long as there is a reasonable amount of activity and everyone behaves like the great adults that you all are, the board will be here.  I don't mind paying for a place that people enjoy.  You all have been super great about self-governing.  That doesn't happen often but it shows the caliber of people that hang out here. 

I am totally enjoying NOT living on my computer. This is the first time I have not spent every single day in front of a monitor since I was in my early 30's!   Has been a huge change and I'm loving it. Sometimes miss creating graphics but  that passes.

And now, it's time for me to get back to my new hobby!!  Take care and most of all, ENJOY!!  :thumb3:
