Thank you, Rob, as usual for the help--on top of your moderatorship … and on top of your assistant fiction editorship for Able Muse!

Thank you, Allen, for being so very helpful! The third-party credit card processor automatically sends you a receipt, which you’ve hopefully received. Still, I’ve also sent you a personal acknowledgment note.

Thank you, Mark, for helping out … not to mention the outstanding work you’ve been doing as our new moderator for Non-Metrical!

Thank you, Cathy, as always!

Thank you, Jayne, for that additional proxy administration of those payments!

Thank you, Ned ... much appreciated!

Thank you, Mary, for helping out—yes, the Paypal ‘send money’ did come through.

Kevin, it’s a lot, maybe too much--since most of it is personally covered by me, which is why I’m immensely grateful to the those who are able to assist (especially during these semiannual or so calls) which is still voluntary.

Hey, Jim—yes, I get you, and help received … much appreciated!

Thanks for the update, Jayne. And especially, thank you Annie and Mark!

Cheers,
…Alex

I’m a bit embarrassed by that “Muse” thing by my name, which I did not expect. I won’t ask Alex to take it down just yet. It came without my asking for it. My gift was sizeable because Eratosphere is very important to me. There was and is no desire to show off or compete in some donation “potlatch”. All I can say is I’d love to see more such beside other people’s names. This is a very, very special place that must not fail. Perhaps Alex could find a way to combine a second donation from those who’ve contributed with their first, so that Nine or Ninety “Muses” could appear.

Don't be embarrassed, Allen. Well said and well done.

You prodded me to toss in a few more ducats.

For the first time in Sphere history, Allen doesn't seek to amuse...


But in all seriousness, a subtext of Allen's comment is that there are probably several folks who donate anonymously or without chiming in on this thread because they don't necessarily want to draw attention to their donation(s). I have nothing to do with the financial side of things, but Allen's note reminds me to tip my invisible cap to those invisible investors.

Alex, I donated through PayPal. Hope it went through! I'm not on Sphere much these days, but I shall always be grateful to you and the Sphere community for all the help I received with my poetry--immeasurable--and all the friendships I have formed here. Thank you! Hope to pop in now and then, when time allows.

Charlotte
