I'm equivocal on the awards idea. We also have the anthology idea in progress, which may also require an investment from contributors. Hopefully proceeds from sale of the anthology will cover costs (and maybe even website running costs). Perhaps if there's an annual anthology series, it can become self-sustaining.

With regards helping out with admin duties, as mentioned I'm happy to help where I can. I may not be able to work on it every day, but most days I can probably find up to an hour.

Good points PaulE.

Thanks for the offer. Maybe I can get together a group of people who are happy to assist and we can work together on what needs to be done and who will do what. I am just keen to make sure that if for any reason I can not be on here, that somebody else (or a small group) can do enough to keep it going for short periods of time.

Just FYI, we could use whatever we make from the anthology to fatten up that kitty :)
I write under MJ Hawken and MJ Crispin. I love writing fantasy with a bit of romance!
Feel free to ask me anything about horses :)

I'm all for using the anthology to keep money in the kitty, presuming it's successful...

Let's not focus on the $ side of things too much. As Peter said we have the money, we just need somebody who is prepared to take on being responsible for paying the bills and acting as a backup for me.

Paul,
I apologise for my being AWOL but a few personal issues have needed some sorting over the last few months.
I do donate but have limited technical skills but was a mod on another forum, non writing, that consistently had a hundred or more logged on, two mods, another guy and myself.
Let me know if you have any ideas as to where I can help.
Take it easy.
SD
Let's do a three sixty and get out of here !

Ok.

I have been thinking and all we need is:
- somebody to pay the bills (from the donations)
- another active moderator

These dont need to be the same person. If anybody wants to step up, please let me know.
