Transparency: in the interest of this site
« on: Jan 04, 2019, 03:23:08 PM »

Hello GR lovelies!

In the interest of being completely transparent, I would like to discuss a little bit of private life. I hope I won't bore you to tears and I hope this doesn't come across as needy mcWhiney Pants. Anyway! Due to changes in insurance, we are losing an extra $400 every two weeks. I am currently employed at a base level retail position as part time, where in I may pull in $100-$250 a month after the Christmas rush. After careful budget re-adjustment, my husband and I, with our small family included, will have exactly $22 every two weeks to spare, or, $45 a month. This budget does include: our groceries, cat food for 5 cats, birdfood for 4 birds, our power bills, mortgage, credit card payments and so on. We will not be starving, obviously!

But, this will impact this website in such a way: currently we have saved in paypal $63.76 toward April's $119.40 yearly Dreamhost cost. In addition, if we are to start using Chatwee (which at the moment has approval by 2 members -- please test it and give me your opinions!) that is an additional monthly cost of $19.

Until I am able to find, and apply for a full time job, as my currently employment has no room or no will to give full time hours, my husband and I will not be able to afford to keep up with Chatwee and we are unsure which credit card we may have to pull from to pay April's bill.

I am aware how this post sounds, and that it does come across as begging, and I apologize for that, but at the moment, this is basically where I am as your admin, and this is the situation. If it takes GR another six months to move forward either in a chat room, an update, please be patient with me. I, as well as The Red Neck, are the only active staff members at this time. (Although we are looking for mods and fellow admins!)

Thank you so much for reading! All my love,

 You own a rock. It's a rock with a symbol on it. Nobody is sure what it does.    Light, flexible, and handy for the acrobatic types.    A versatile vegetable for cakes, stews, meals and rabbits.    RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    A heavy long steel shield, enchanted with nature and shaped to resemble a leaf. The shield is said to be able to cloak the bearer in forested areas three times a day.    Madam Curio's specialty potion. One potion can restore either a tiny tidbit of health, stamina, mana (magic), strength, dexterity, perceptions or intelligence with one draw back: the effect is random and the drinker has no idea which will be bolstered.   A steel shuriken, or throwing star. Easily concealed, these weapons can be thrown or hidden in the palm for slashing or puncturing.    A deep green ring carved from spinel. Engraved are shapes of twisting vines that seem to reach out. This ring is ensorcelled to allow the wearer to cast Tangling Vines, a spell to trap a target, twice a day.   A necklace with the mummified claw of a supposed harpy. It is said the necklace may grant the wearer feather fall once a day.    This health potion is enough to restore light wounds (cuts, bruises, knock outs.) It may be enough to keep serious wounds together long enough to seek medical attention...but it isn't recommended for near-death health issues.    A splendid long cloak dyed as black as a starless night. To keep a body warm or to keep them hidden in the shadows?
