One of our favorite websites is in trouble.

This site holds fundraisers from its members periodically but the cupboard is bare.  There's a falloff in interest, in willingness to commit, in the ability to come together as a community there that our site, DailyKos, has sometimes sparked them to in the past.  I don't know what we can do for them.

Their quarterly fundraiser for this quarter is into its 56th day and they can't seem to manage that final 10%.  This one started October 1... and is still going on!

Woe unto Freeperville!

(Lest one worry that this is a temporary condition brought about by the election season... the last fundraiser took 55 days to complete.)

In fundraiser thread forty-five...

What you might not know, or realize, is that our quarterly FReepathons raise the funds to finance that quarter's expenses - the current expenses
Do you suppose Jim and his son will have to take a pay cut?  It'd be too much to hope for that it goes dark, I suppose...  it'd be nice for everyone to have to come up with their own conspiracy theories for a change, though.  I'm sure we'd get far more creative stuff.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
