Hi all - I don't normally do this but I deleted pretty much every post going back to where it got de-railed in an argument about GoFundMe and costs. Maybe we can make another thread for that topic Nameless? If we can focus on donations and discussing the conference in this thread, that would be helpful. Nameless' concern is that the costs are high so the goal wont be met, and hellouser won't be able to go. Couple comments on that: Its only the beginning of May. We started this *way* early for a reason. The conference isn't until nearly the end of the year. I have yet to announce this to our subscribership of 67,000 people, so that is still coming in the next week or so. Donations should increase then hopefully significantly. I went around and around with Hellouser on costs, and coming from eastern Canada, this is really what it will cost him, including hotels and fees. You can see more of a breakdown of costs (as well as the article Im sending to the 67,000 people HERE I wouldn't worry about him not being able to go because we don't reach $6,000. And the second person to be going was probably going to be me, and I would do my best to pay for my own expenses myself. Swoop isn't available to go. I did ask him.
