"If you choose not to renew your term, we will convert your board to a free account, which includes advertising and has a 1000 message limit."
I should have checked my notes and the Acme Fund before posting the renewal notice, because technically there were enough contributions the last time around to just about pay for another year's term. (There was still a remaining balance from donations to the Fund which were not intended for board rent. But since the Fund has become virtually inactive, I could tap into that reserve).
So, technically, we don't need any more contributions to renew for another year, and I will do so, but just leave the post up for a while as a reminder and welcome further discussion in this thread! (Hey, at least it is prompting some activity, lol)
