I just joined the forum about a week ago, but the news section of Finheaven has been my homepage for around 9 months. I threw in 10.00. I appreciate what you do alot. I will make another donation in the future so please keep your paypal link around.

Keep Up The Great Work!

We really hated to do this, but it was becoming quite obvious that with the growth of the site, we just flat couldn't afford to keep it running by ourselves.

I also wanted to point out the extremely hard work our three Mods put in. 06, has helped out financially, as well as with his Mod work, and was one of the (if not THE) very first member of our forums.

39 (an old pal of mine from the Yahoo Club) who tirelessly sits in front of a computer all day long at work, (and suprisingly hasn't been fired yet) spends 7.5 of his 8 hour working day watching over the forums.

Then there is 984, who while also Modding a couple forums, also is a writer for the main site. He too is going to school, and taking care of our "home"

This place has become very, very special, and like I said, we hated to even write up anything asking for money, but advertising just hasn't been as successful as I had hoped.

In fact if anyone out there has experience in the online ad game, your help would probably be the answer here.

We do this for you guys, and hope you continue to enjoy our efforts.

C'mon guys! :D I have donated $100 in the past and will continue to do so. I also have purchased one of the banners for something really special to be revealed later. :)

This is the GREATEST Dolphins board out there, so please contribute to keep it the BEST. :D

Yes, I want to agree with 87... the article I typed up was a "short" and broad history of FinHeaven & Co. This site would NEVER have been what it is today with out the help of Dave (39), Jorden (984), and Larry (06).

Larry has been with FinHeaven & Co for the longest time. I am pretty sure he has been with us since the first set of forums a long time ago... he was still posting on the ESPN board... and I recall him being our "advertiser" on the ESPN board... Not to mention the every once in a while donation...

39 & 984 have been great... you guys have helped the boards so much. Thank you very much for your time and effort.

Again, the article I typed wasn't an exact day-to-day history... if I were to do that, the article would be EXTREMELY long. I am sorry if I missed someone... but I assure you, FinHeaven & Co could have NEVER been what it is today without your help!

Don't feel bad about asking. A service has been provided by you guys for a considerable ammount of time free of charge and I want it to continue. I'm watching this and hope that a lot of people step forward and help out. if you hadn't posted this I would have had no idea about the expense this site personally posed you. A lot of people enjoy this site and I am sure they will show you that they appreciate your work as well.

I am chipping in $50, AJ and 87. Thanks for the time and effort that you have put into this site! It seems like a second home to me.

C`mon, fellow Phin-fans, time to break open the ol` wallets and purses. $5.00 or $500.00, whatever you can afford. It`s a family thing. :)

I just dropped $20 to you guys. I'm getting married next month (thank God it'll be over then) so I don't have a ton to spare but hopefully every little bit helps. This has become my home away from home in my home on my desk...nevermind, I just really like the site.
:biggrin:

Thanks Capt. She's an incredible woman and I can't wait to start my life with her but this wedding thing just needs to end. I never thought I could spend 90% of my life for a year focusing on one single day...it's exhausting. :eek:

sorry I cannot I am saving my money for after I am laid off. ;)

seriously AJ And 87, you know what this site means to me and how much I enjoy mod'ing and posting here as well as working w/you guys. :friends: Not much time left to excersize my freshman writing skills I learned and write commentary, but we'll see....(AJ was this your paper for school ? :eat: )

My next donation will be the proceeds from my not even possessed winning prize in the nickname contact, aka a Dan Marino rookie card. Not sure if I should ask for bids from Finheaven members which seems a little odd or just post it on eBay - thoughts :help:
