Support the site.

It's been over 2 years since ChiefsPlanet has asked for any donations to assist in the operation costs of running a site this size.

As many of you know, I acquired half ownership in ChiefsPlanet recently. Kyle and I share expenses and income now. Unfortunately, the expenses are much larger than the income. We have developed a plan to make this site self sufficient within 6 months. That plan is in progress currently. We promised a trimmed database and improved performance for draft weekend. We delivered. We're going to continue to deliver on these promises.

We're going to purchase the upgrade to vBulletin and cease with this beta version. We're going to upgrade the front page. We're going to offer value added incentives to subscribe to this site while continuing to keep it free for those who are unable or unwilling to pay. We're going to become more active in ChiefsPlanet sponsored activities in the area including tailgating. We're going to take on advertisers/sponsors in a way that will not intrude upon your browsing pleasure. We're going to collaborate with other Chiefs related sites for even more entertainment value. We're going to open a merchandise store - a real store, not a cafepress hack. We're going to continue listening to you in order to keep this your site as much as it is Kyle's or mine.

This site provides a lot of entertainment value, IMO. You pay $50 a month to brick and mortar establishments in which you spend less time relaxing and enjoying yourself. You easily drop $100 on a couple hours at dinner and beverages. I'm not going to tell you what to give, but I am going to ask you to really think about what this site is worth to you. I'm going to ask for your maximum contribution because this is the last time I'll ask. After this, ChiefsPlanet is on her own (meaning that the site will be financially viable without donations). If you have to spread out your contribution over the next several months, that's perfectly fine. We're going to leave the gift doors open until Red Friday.

If you use paypal, please click here. or click the button graphic below (same destination).










If you're more comfortable sending a check:
Phil Kloster
7410 Larson Ave
KC, MO 64133

It has been a pleasure hanging out with you guys out here for the past 5 years. We look forward to knocking back some beverages with each of you at a future event.

Regards,

Kyle and Phil

p.s. When I organized a our donations drives several years ago, it was always the same, dependable people opening their wallets. We appreciate those people very much, but if more of you would contribute it would lessen the load on those guys. I hate to see a minority carrying the weight of a website that supposedly has 5,000 subscribers (and quadruple that in lurkers). FWIW, Lurkers and guests are eligible to support the site as well. Bandwidth is bandwidth. Students, we accept Pell grants, foodstamps, and keggar wrist bands.

$125 is the largest thus far. You should probably go with that. There's a regular who generally opens up his wallet pretty deeply when we do these things and I'm not sure you wanna match several hundy.

I don't care about who gave what, but it would be interesting to know what you need, and how much we've got so far. Thanks

We don't have an established goal this year. We're planning a software updates, design upgrades, performance balancing, and layout changes. The more money we raise, the better and more quickly those changes take place. The stuff Kyle and I can do cost nothing, but everything else is quite expensive. There are also some startup costs for the opening of our Planet store to consider. Soon, the store will be a profit center and help to support the Planet, but right now it's overhead.

So, my pipedream goal is $25k. We don't quite have $2k. I think a more realistic goal would be $6k by Sept 9th. We could probably do that.

Heh, yeah, I used my wifes account. I didn't feel like opening an account for myself. Then I accidently hit the 'done' button twice. So if you get two payments from me just put the extra payment towards this:

Good point, I forgot about all the old people. I guess we'll have the tailgate on the 16th.

Geez

Thats disappointing. I thought we'd be doing better than that.

We need to outline what you need to make your goal. Like this:

5 Donations @ $200

40 @ $100

100 @ $50

250 @ $20

500 @ $10


That gets you $20,000. The 1st 2 categories are the most difficult to find, but you only need 45 total donations at those levels. The $50 level should be met for, at a min., by the top 150 posters on this bb. The next 250 @ $20 should be met by anyone that posts a min of once week. The last 500 @$10 should be met by those that visit to get information, but rarely, if ever post. Just a thought.........

We do a $ drive like this every 3 years, right? This is excessively cheap entertainment for 36 months.

I'll bet the Planet would bring in a lot of dough if the girlie thread were switched to Pay-Per-View.
