I am sure sorry that you were faced with such a tough decision Linda. I do so appreciate you keeping the forum open.

I agree with the others, whatever we can do to help, just let us know. I tried to send the little bit of paypal money I had accumulated several weeks ago, and it just did not work. I use paypal so rarely, I think they must have changed things up somewhat. I guess I should research it.

Thanks to you and Chris and the wonderful moderators and maderator you have selected to lead our little family~it is by far the best site on the internet!

R.I.P.Drop Poker....I was hooked on that game long before I accidently hit the forum button and fell for Julie's intoxicating smile and computer wisdom.Rock on and God bless the big boss lady!!

Unhappy How sad

Linda & Chris,

I understand completely. RHSS has become a large part of my life. Thank you for keeping the forum up and running. This must be a very difficult choice and a necessary one.

wow, that's too bad about having to close the games, although I too, do not really play them very much.

Also I am sad to hear about the main page, but I too only click on the forum and cannot live without it!!!!!!!!!! thanks so much for keeping it open, I love this place and feel blessed to have found such a great home away from home here at RHSS!!

Thank you!!

Even though I have only been a member for a short time, I am disappointed to hear the news. The forum is where I always go, so glad that will stay. If anyone comes up with an idea to help, donations, etc., count me in. The people here on this site are the most welcoming and encouraging anywhere.

A lot of people don't realize it, but right on the main page of the site on the right are two donation buttons - one allows you to donate through Amazon; the other allows you to donate through Paypal. Every little bit helps, even $1

EDIT: Actually, there are three buttons, the third allows you to donate through C2It (a Citibank network)

I just wanted to say thank you for having such a great site here. And giving me hours of enjoyment over the years. Thank you for keeping the forums. I understand that things change, hope things get better.

I have $1.23 in my paypal, its on the way to you and Chris. Wish it was more.

I appreciate all the comments and support from all of you.

In answer to some of the questions asked --

We thought about making the forum "fee or paid subscription based' in the past but I'm afraid we'd lose all but a handful of members whether it be because of personal funds or not wanting to pay for membership. I just don't think this would work at this time.

Anyone wanting to donate $$ to help defray the costs of the forum, we have placed a Paypal button at the bottom of every page of the forum so it doesn't have to be searched for. When you click on it, the form is already filled out for you except for the amount you wish to send. If you want to send a check and don't have our address, just send me a private message and I'll let you know what it is. (Although our address can be found on the Internet, I don't want it posted on the forum for all the search engines to pick up and publish it for obvious reasons.)

I have also linked all our affiliated shopping sites at the bottom of each forum page, too. When you shop anywhere on the Internet (don't forget Christmas is getting close!) please consider checking our sites out before you make your purchases. The merchants we're affiliated with us pay us a commission on your purchases.

I'm a little disappointed and happy at the same time to hear that the sweeps listed on the main site isn't being used. I'm disappointed because, even tho I've slowed up and not posted every day in the last couple of months like I used to, it does take me quite a bit of time when I do post them that I could have been doing productive work on another site. BUT I'm happy because seeing the response so far, I don't feel bad that I'm taking something away that's important to everyone. Guess I should have asked months ago whether anyone here used my listings!!

Thank you for a great site. I wish advertisers would realize that I flip the page on magazines just like I don't click on all links. But they just don't seem to get it. I spend a lot more time looking at my computer screen than I do the tv screen during advertisements.

I want to thank you so much for this site both in the past and for keeping it open now. I have made true friends of the heart here.

The problem here clearly is that no one stops on the first page, we all just jump right to the forum and never look for the buttons. Good move to put the info on the forum pages.

Linda and Chris,

Thanks for all of your time and effort in maintaining this site. It is truly a place that I look forward to going to every day. I have always played the games (and recently won the Sephora lotion! ) but the main object of my affections has been the forums. I am so glad that you are keeping them open!

I will be making a donation to you through paypal.

Thanks again for a super site!
