Glad it worked out - remember, this process is done manually NOT done by software alone, so our wonderful map-tender is a busy guy who does our forum wonderous quality work - I'm proud of all he does, as I am of the Mods and all the members who make our job so easy Smiley

I am always grateful for any sevices provided by you and your team of moderators. I know from personal experience it is VERY difficult to handle the public. You have done an exemplary job and I humbly acknowledge you and your dedicated staff. I thank you for you past assistance and thank you for your anticipated help in the future. I have learned so much from your site. Thank you.

Konasdad:

I'm running a Nascar Pool at work now and into week 4 now, I'm getting regulars who think I'm going to hold their numbers for them, welll - maybe if they cough up the amount in a pre-paid way the week prior. But I really am not going to SAVE numbers otherwise and I'm finding people are getting insulted that I give their lucky numbers away.

As you say, public service (Okay, I'm paraphrasing you here) but it is sometimes thankless and hard work. Luckily the Beekeeping forums has GREAT VALUE and most people have the patiences to allow the work to get done - I hope everyone understands that we are a small budgetted site, strictly working on donations. Those Ads you DON'T SEE HERE is the difference between flashy Casino-like graphics and super high-tech self-filling forms that work on your log-in info, etc. Honestly, we do magic on a show string, but I have never gone looking for additional funding, besides my simple request in my signature, which has brought a few hundred over the years to the forum which has greatly helped.

I had though about adding a FUND RAISING WEEK back in February when we started year 4 - asking for help in keeping the forum going and creating a buffer to make sure it is around for DECADES literally to come (no matter who is behind the wheel then) is not asking to much, other sites make it their FIRST POST in their popular forums - here, I'd rather hope members see that we could use assistance, see the value they get from the forum and website and IF they can give using the donate button on the forum toolbar. But I NEVER want to put us in a position to beg for funds, I'd rather pay every dollar of cost "Out of pocket" then to have to give members a choice of helping or seeing the site go away.

Nope... Beemaster Forums should be around a long time - I'm coming up soon on redoing the domain name and will grab it for 2 decades (which isn't the cheapest out-of-pocket thing to do) but server costs are in a hold pattern and not costing us currently - but that won't happen forever. So the costs of rumming the site will go up and SHOCKINGLY SO I'm AFRAID, but until then, I'm glad it is within the range where the forum is self-supporting.

Concidaring the amount of NEW features; Blogging, Swarm Removal Map, New SMF Based forum software - it has been a wonderful 6 months for growth, but technology and membership wise. I continue to be amazed at the remarkable expansion and look forward to the years ahead.

Nice chatting, Glad again you have the Swarm MAp info okay Smiley

Gee:

I sure wasn't hitting you up, just explaining the behind the scenes stuff here - but WOW, thanks, the annual idea makes me feel like a local Public TV Station Smiley But honestly, so kind of you!

Being in Cherry Hill, I was gonna make you a proposition if you had a strong hive or hives going into the Spring here - 3 frames of brood and bees for three frames of honey (or similar trade) you and Kris are my nearest neighbors and I'd love to get restarted soon as the queens are laying regular and I can walk a hive from brood to queen the good old fashion way Smiley

I like the idea of rebuilding from brood and workers, I have done so many times over 30+ years and although it is usually a slower than wanted process, late in the season it becomes hard to order packages with queens, so I go for the alternative.

I have PDMattox who is very willing to help out with a nuc and is checking into finding an empty shipping cage, but he is busy building up a commercial sized yard and lives in Florida - I surely don't want to put him out any more than he is stretching himself now.

Again, thanks for the donation - I'm more than surprized, I surely wasn't hinting and your gift will go toward keeping our site and forum around a long time - I someday hope to hand the site over to a member who is either very young now, or maybe not even born yet - of course, that is supposing I live a long and healthy life. Either way, the site will be in great hands, I promisel Thanks so much again Smiley

I didn't feel hit up as you say. I get a lot of value from this site regarding my new hobby. I was thinking about doing it and was just lazy. So you motivated me to do something is all. Thanx.
As for bees, I have one extremely strong hive and one doing decently. I am anticipating receiving three queens from Purviss Brother's Apiaries late June so I will minimally have two hives and one nuc. I may also be getting two nucs from Tim Schuler in Richland, NJ. My understanding is Harvey's Bees may noy have bees available this year as someone wants 100% of thre hives he's producing . It would of course be my pleasure to assist you in restarting. How can I help?
