Some good ideas and I said i would pass it on but this thread is really not the place for an extended discussion of them.To correct that issue you have to make it just about as easy as blinking to obtain money from everyone. 95% of people aren’t gonna pitch out $25 - they will tell themselves it’s just a forum and they don’t need this and that they have others financial priorities.
Make each member sign up for a $1-2 membership that rolls month to month and i doubt those board will lose any contributing members, you will simply just trim some fat off of the membership numbers
Make it too easy to say no. $1-2 is too easy to say no. People will pay it
Just trying to help. No body will mind paying pennies a day each month to be here
It’s when you ask for lump sums do people get cold feet
