You're very welcome! And Thank you to everyone. I cannot say it enough.
We're 24 hours away from the close of the poll, so I wanted to give everyone a brief status update.
Despite the votes in favor of Google ads, the underground donation movement wound up winning.
At this point 29 very generous stage managers have donated. We have raised the entire $450 needed for the next 12 months... and $422 of what we'll need for the following year!
I am completely and totally floored by all of this. Seriously. You guys are the best membergroup an admin could hope for.
At this point we are completely moved over to the new server. I'm noticing that it's markedly faster, and have therefore gone ahead and reactivated most of the stuff that I'd suspended last week, like calendar and chat. If you guys notice any weird behavior let me know. A few folks in far reaching corners of the world might not be seeing the new site just yet, it can take up to 72 hours for domain moves to take effect globally. Once we're past that point I'll go ahead and terminate the old hosting plan - with relish.
As I mentioned earlier, I will also be implementing a "Preview of coming attractions" feature that donors will be able to use to promote their shows and charities of choice. Donors have received PMs explaining how it will work.
