Crowdfunding TT Nut

Postby ConducTTor » Wed Jun 12, 2019 11:31 am

Due to health I haven't been able to work for the past two years. Needless to say, my savings are dwindling.

So, until I get back on my feet I am cutting all expenses. This includes TT Nut. There are several different products required for the site - hosting, domain name registration, security. They are all yearly deals that come up at various points in time. The total sum is roughly $300 per year.

Going forward, when a bill comes up I will ask for Paypal donations to cover it. If the donations are not enough I will shut down the site. It is what it is.

Thanks to everyone who contacted me. Robert B was first and before I could say anything about it, he sent a check to cover website expenses for the next 2 years.

Feel free to bow down. I certainly am.

Good man Robert B!

Keep me in mind for the future if you wish to pass the flag along.

Thank you Robert B!
And let us know if anything else comes up Alex, things have gotten a little quiet this time of year (as usual, it seems) but I think TT needs it to keep growing.

That's normal. People are outside enjoying the weather.

But, it will be fun to see West Coast/Canadian contingent descend on the National :dance:

Alex,

I feel that the future of TT Scale in the US and Canada depends on TTnut.com.

How much do you need in the coming months to help keep the site going?
