For the very first time, the community has come together and covered the costs of operations on your own - and not only that, you did it with flying colors! In a period of two days, in between that last times I checked on our account, the community had donated a total of $485 - that's enough for almost 3 months of operations!
This really goes to show how much the community means to all of you, what we can truly accomplish when we pull together as one, and also the level of maturity in understanding what it really takes and what it has taken for me to keep the community and library alive. Wonderful job, I am truly humbled by your efforts.
Proceeding this I have been busy making some significant changes to the transparency and method in which community costs are displayed, all of which now happens automagically.
Just to spotlight a few of them:
In addition to this, and in response to a comment left in my previous blog, I have further explained our not-for-profit corporation status, along with a link to a PDF version of our incorporation certificate from the state of Kansas - here in the USA. In order to be completely legal, and legitimate in our operations, this was needed when we started Esoteric Online in order to take a step beyond what most communities provide, and really do things right.
Please check out the updated page when convenient, if you don't see the new changes you may need to clear your browser cache. I sincerely hope these efforts provide the type of transparency everyone deserves, and makes everyone feel more at home and comfortable in our operations.
Once again, wonderful job everyone, my heart is so very warmed to know that our community and the evolution it assists in, is as important to you as it's been for me.
In The Work,
