    So after donating my $25 I noticed that the last 3 donations were made by two people ( of 3 people) that had NEVER posted, but only read thru OUR website. Now get this, 1 of the last three donation was from a person that was NOT EVEN A MEMBER, but felt the need to donate.

    The last donation by a regular member was AUG 3rd, 2016.

    Now that's embarrassing !!!

    What donations show on the donation meter, and what ones don't?
    Is there a way to make all donations be counted by the meter?

    One time donations will show up on the meter, but recurring do not. There is no way to make them all show on the meter that I am aware of.

    yeah! Ive worked on that and will continue to do so,
    but if you gentlemen want to keep the web site up and running,
    an occasional bit of financial help would be very much appreciated

    I was thinking the savings from the supposedly lower tax rate.

    BTW... having run a few web sites for non profit groups I know first hand they can be a good deal of work and when your compiling and indexing information it is an everlasting chore.

    Thank you for your service to us!!!

    its rare that we break even on expenses and trust me , every bit helps,
    we have a recurring annual bill of about $350 due next month,
    this is far from the only on going monthly expense but its the highest month due,
    to several website feature annual renewals so if anyone's thinking of helping support the web site, now's a good time,
    for the few members that care too help!
    THANK YOU

    I just paid this months bills, the web sites cost... $389 this month,
    due to cost increases and several new security features added,
    thankfully most months costs are lower.
    keep in mind as the number of threads increase and your access too,
    searchable info increases the size of the web site support and data storage increases.
