    Lots of folks here use photobucket and similar sites but we are looking to incorporate a photo gallery into the forum. It is more bandwidth for the forum and diskspace but I think what we get out of it will be worth it.

    I have added a "Support SMF" button at the top left of the forum. All money brought in thru that link will go toward the $129 we need to purchase it and if we get extra then that is a good thing too since it may pay us to jump up a notch on our hosting real soon.

    If everyone will just contribute a few dollars, we have enough active members to where it should be fairly quick and easy.

    I am putting forth the first $25.00 just because I want to get the ball rolling...

    Thanks everyone in advance for being a part of the greatest forum on the planet and that is no exaggeration.

    Look for this button in the top left of the page..

    Gypsy, are you wanting to send something via snail mail?

    If anyone wants to do that to avoid Paypal, just send it to the official Smoking-Meat.com address at:

    Smoking-Meat.com
    PO Box 2531
    Sapulpa, OK 74066

    Be sure to put "Support SMF" in the memo area of the check or M/O so I will know what it is designated for.

    Also post it here as soon as you mail it so we can count our chickens before they hatch[​IMG].

    I sent $5.00 and I feel guilty that it's all I can afford right now because I feel like I have gotten hundreds of dollars worth of advice and recipes here. Keep up the good work Jeff and everyone else who makes this a great place.[​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for donating.. we are almost there now. We'll give it another day or so and let everyone who wants to give a few dollars, do so and then we'll just go for it!

    At last count we still needed 34 dollars so yes.. we are extremely close. [​IMG]

    I see some late nights ahead for me.. installing, tweaking, testing, etc.[​IMG]

    Jeff, I guess I missed the last offering. I will, however, match vulcan's $40 offering to go for site maintenance and upkeep. In my mind, it's a bargain!

    All I need is the PayPal info. And, thank you for hosting this site.

    For those who have said you wanted to give toward the hosting, site maintainance, etc., click on the "Support SMF" image at the top left of the page that looks like this:

    [​IMG]


    When it opens you can input your dollar amount and sign in to Paypal to finalize it or you can click at the bottom left of that page where it says..

    Don't have a PayPal account?
    Use your credit card or bank account (where available). Continue

    Just click on the "Continue" link and it will let you input a major credit/bank card without a Paypal account.


    If anyone needs more help with this just post it here and I will try to help you out.

    This site is completely supported by your donations thru the purchase of recipes, items purchased at the Smoking Meat Store, and cash donations.

    This site is top notch due to its top notch members.. and that is NO bull!

    Well, Brother Jeff, it looks like you are over the top!

    After I drop kicked a spammer and a smut peddler outta the "Links" area I popped a $20 your way.

    Put it into the Domain kitty or whatever!

    Better yet, lemme buy you a beer!

    Cheers!
