    Rose,

    Thanks for all your support.  This year I will be introducing a way to help support Lottery Post, although I'd never just ask for donations without giving something back!  Once some of the new features start rolling out, it will make sense, and hopefully the membership will see great value in making some contributions.

    Again, thanks for all the support.

          konane: Thanks for the really thoughtful comments; very much appreciated.

          emilyg: I guess it just has to do with my own personal feelings on the matter of donations, and is not an invalidation of your idea.  I think of donations as something for a charity, and going towards someone or something with little hope.  If it ever came down to needing cash just to keep the servers running, I would ask - but it's not at that point.  Also, I have this "master plan", of which you've only seen about 25%.  When it gets to the point where a lot more of the plan is rolled out, there will be some different things that some members may want to shell out a few bucks for.  Some ideas in the plan are things that will be rolled out over the next few months, and other things are so advanced it will take a year or two.  These are things that do not exist anywhere on the planet for lottery players, so it will definitely take some time.  Anyway, thanks again for the kind thoughts.  (Maybe check out the t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other great stuff in the Lottery Post Gift Shop!)

            Thanks Todd

            I was just going to ask if you would start a donation page or yearly charge for membership for all of the work, time and expense. You are making the best lottery site on the planet!!! 

            If not why not???

            Thank you

            Lee

                  Todd this isn't a donation to you it's to the site and to us. I want what you are doing and don't want you to cover the expense that's why Maybells went down it was free for a lot of John's expense and all of his time. 

                  Thanks
