View Full Version : Members Drive to save Finheaven



BSQX4

Guys, I gave Andrew the idea to do a pledge drive amoung the membership to save Finheaven. I started with an opening pledge of $129. The new total is $1371! We're going to do this until Monday 11/11 02. Hopefully we'll hit our total earlier. All checks are being sent out 11/12/02. Remember the total now is $1371, when you make your pledge subtract the total from the amount needed and give us the new target figure. Hey, we have alot of fun on this site so if the membership is asked to help a little how can we not. O.K. I got the ball rolling we're at $1371. Who's next? Use this thread to make your pledge and let's see the target total reached fast. I'm going to do everything I can to help. Let's Rock!!!!

You can put me down for 25, which would pefer a check or paypal I can do either it doesn't matter.

CHALLENGE GRANT !!! :)

Anybody just on the edge of a commitment, but not quite locked-in yet? Would it help if your contribution yields another? I offer a (modest) challenge grant:

As soon as I see new contributions totalling $25 or more pledged here, I will forward a contribution of $25.

I wish I could match every contribution, but my bank would take exception. :)

SO, C'MON GANG; $25 WILL GET YOU $50 !!!!

inFINSible
11-06-2002, 04:17 PM
we're down to $1205.......

Capt. Dick
11-06-2002, 04:24 PM
For the record, I`ve already given AJ $70.00. That paid for the PO box for one year. Let`s fill it and keep our site!!

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 04:36 PM
Amen Capt. Dick- NEW TOTAL $1205 Miami Dolphin fans are the greatest in the world.

I'm throwing in 5 bucks at least, maybe more when I get a job. I mean, I'm sorry it ain't much, but it's better than nothing. Let me find a job, then it will be better.

$1200

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 04:52 PM
55 brings us to an even $1200. Let's beat this # down fast. Who's next! Let's Rock! Props to 55!

$1200 if a majority of the active members gave $5, we'd be OK - thanks breck :D

P4E
11-06-2002, 04:57 PM
Breck, $5 from a young guy who's not working is worth a whole bunch more than $0 from someone who is. And think of it as $10, anyway, cuz I'm counting it toward the $25 in pledges I'm looking for to pull that $25 contribution outta my checking account.

One other thought: anyone who doesn't wanna announce their contribution -- in any amount, large or small -- can just send a private message to BSQX4, and I'm sure he'll be happy to post it here as an anonymous contribution. That okay with you, our worthy pledge driver?

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 05:11 PM
Cool with me Phan4Ever. Bring it on.

girlphan
11-06-2002, 05:47 PM

Thanks guys and gals for all your help... Here is a list of people that have donated through PayPal. Since some people didn't give me their username, I will list their first name and last name initial.

CA Dolfan : $10.00
Dozerdog : $50.00
Stephen S. : $5.00
Vegas_Phin : $20.00
girlphan : $20.00
FateZero : $20.00
DolFan899 : $4.00
------------------------
Total: $129.00

Thanks everyone, I'm sure we'll make this in no time :cool:

P4E
11-06-2002, 06:01 PM
Girlphan and Breck meet the challenge!

(I'm sure they woulda helped out anyway, but I like to think my modest challenge helped make their commitments just a lil bit easier.) :) :) :)

BSQX4, feel free to add my $25 to the list now.

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 07:35 PM
Based on the latest numbers we're at $1026. What an AWESOME effort. Next Goal is to get under $1000. Thanks to GirlPhan, Phan4Ever, and those who donated through PayPal. As Don Shula used to say, "I'm getting the good feeling."

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 07:40 PM
Phan4Evers' challenge got people excited. Who else will step up? Next $27 brings us under $1000. Let's Rock!

This is for a year right? We shouldn't have to hear about this again for a year correct?

aesthetic
11-06-2002, 08:23 PM
Was gonna contribute last time but for some reason it just didn't happen. Guess it just takes a bit of a crisis to get some people going. What would I do in the off-season without FinHeaven???? I pledge $50. Money coming Paypal this Saturday after paycheck comes. Also props to FinHeaven admins for putting up with all the headaches. Thank you, thank you, thank you.....

$957 left- yes?

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 08:24 PM
I don't know about that I don't really have a comedy act but maybe I'll put this on my resume and fax it to Jerry anyway. Hey, bottom line is we're doing pretty good. VanDolPhan my understanding is that we will be good for one year. C'MON THESE BEAUTIFUL KIDS NEED YOUR HELP! COMING TO THE STAGE IS THE WONDERFUL FRANKIE AVALON! $8 more and were under the magic $1000 barrier.

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 08:27 PM

Yes this will cover us for one year, and you won't hear a peep out of us about this again, until next season. ;)

FinHeavenAJ
11-06-2002, 08:41 PM
Dolfandenny just donated $10... thanks man...

Also, I would agree with Gram... I am really happy to see this going well. So far we have donated more than what we had donated last time...

Thanks everyone.... :cool:

BSQX4
11-06-2002, 08:49 PM
Thanks Dolphindenny. New total $947!!! I hope Gram answered anyones questions regarding how long this will keep us in good shape for, made in the shade for one year. Don't wait for others to support YOUR site. Step up to the plate. Who's next?

Muck, not only are you a great Dolphin fan but you, as a student stepped up! AWESOME!! Thank You so much for the help.$927 and decending! We are Dolphin fans and will not do what needs to be done when the chips are down! You guys make me proud. C'mon a whole year of messing with each other, hating the Jets and Buffalo. MONEY WELL SPENT AND YOU KNOW IT!!!

11-06-2002, 09:20 PM
I am down for $10 tomorrow at midnight through paypal. Someone please explain pay pal to me. Do i just give my card number? There isn't an extra fee to use it is there?

I know right now the site needs the money now, so the users should fork it over. Lets as the users step up and make sure we don't have to do this again next season. Obviously AJ and 87 put way to much time in to this already, so I would like to ask them if a few users could think of ways to make $ for the site? I was in a frat in college, and would find all kind of ways to get other students, faculty, and the college to pay for our formal, kegs, and parties. Well tell me what you guys think.

Migs182005
11-06-2002, 09:22 PM
U know what? I'm a high school student, I don't work, but I have some money saved up. And I'm going to donate $27 to put us at....
$900.

I love this site. I want to keep writing for it for many years to come. LET"S MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!! :D

:monkey: finheaven going down

Just one problem

:(

I can't send it in till this weekend. Hope that's alright. ;)

Muck
11-06-2002, 09:24 PM
I gotta be honest guys. As of last month, I am no longer a "student". Graduated with honors. :) So I'm no different than anyone else now. But being a student wouldn't matter to me. I figure I spend a lot of time here. And, therefore, I eat up a lot of bandwidth. :) So I'm pratically obligated.

11-07-2002, 07:13 AM
Here is a copy of the PM I sent AJ. I hope next year to do around $250 after I am established better.

AJ I own my own buissness and I know what it is to have money trouble. Aug & Sept. were killers for me and I am just now starting to recover. In the next couple of weeks I will be back on my feet ( as long as everyone pays me ). At that time I will drop you some money, around $50 or better. Have to see what I can do. If you have not recieved it after a few weeks drop me a pm and tell me I forgot. I am getting so busy I may forget, so do hesitate to harass me

You guys have the greatest Dolphin site on the web, and I will do what I can to help keep it going. Also if there is anything else I can do to help, just ask and I will see what I can do.


Y.O.S.

Jay (aka Ducken)

dudes,

i have $20.00 going out in the mail this afternoon. i personally think you should charge a membership fee, and that will get rid of all the slackers that want something for nothing. i mean if you charged everyone that wanted to be a member $5.00, it would be easier on all of us, and you guys too.

thanks for the great site, and i'm proud to be a member in good standing.

tell those that don't want to pay, to go to the herald or worse yet, to the sun sentinel sites (what a joke).

keep up the good work, and as i siad, the check is in themail (i'm sure you never heard that before).

i lost track of the targer, but it looks like it's going down.

dolfan87
11-07-2002, 09:34 AM
After C Max, we are down to $776.00. Ducken, as soon as you send out the check, we will add yours to the total...and take care of your situation first!!

Ok people, let's kick the second half of this thing in the butt...$776.00 left, who will be the one to drop us under $700.00??

genx23
11-07-2002, 10:17 AM

That takes us toooooooooo

496.00!!! We are under 500.00.

Take us on home folks, come on!!

While I was walking my dog tonight I talked to a couple of neighbors who are seasontix holders as well and Finheaven was a brief subject. No,no...they don't read that board but they know that I run DT. After hearing of AJs misery they decided each to chip in with 10 bucks each (already collected). Since I match everything I collect it will be at least:
10+10+20=40

But the DT drive has not even kicked in yet. I know Krimmie can't wait to get rid of his $$.

Alright, so with FFIB's $40, it brings it to $436, and I just dropped $5 through paypal. All I could afford this budget period, I'll get more as soon as I can.

well if you count me already then make sure you deduct the 40 from my future updates. Depending on howmany updates I give (if anybody on DT actually will donate) you have to keep track when and how often I updated you guys.

I suggest, for now you keep me out of the count until I declare it a final count.

It will be in the mail in a couple weeks after I get my first paycheck from my new job, but I got $20 to put in... that should bring the total down to $411.

I just sent in $13.00 from Paypal......one for each win this year! (hear that Lucas?? you better start playing ball boy!)

That should put the figure under the $400.00 mark!

I just tried to donate 10 bucks, but pay pal wouldn't let me. I am not sure if it is becuase i was using a visa debit or because my direct deposit won't show untill tomorrow. i will try again tomorrow, if it doesn't work i ll just do the online check.

I only just found out about the prob - not finding too much time to be here with my current workload. I'll try Paypal, but if it doesn't work I'll get a money order to you.

This things worth saving, most of the time.

ok, here is the deal. The first person to push us under 300.00 bucks gets an autographed 8x10 of everyones favorite linebacker...DERRICK RODGERS! Ok, so most of you hate him, but it is a nice picture.

So come on, it's framed, and all you have to do is help save FIN HEAVEN.

We are close, but we aren't there yet, so who's it gonna be?!!

11-08-2002, 05:49 PM
Man under $300 and we're 80% there!!! A picture of Derrick Rodgers, hey if he notches his career up a hair, makes 5 or 6 Pro Bowls in a row that could be worth big money!!! And it's FRAMED!! You have to be CRAZY not to get in there with a huge pledge. I was away from the board for most of today and came back to find us at $338. Great Job, Dolphin Fans are the best. We still have a goal to reach so let's get there!!! We started this drive at the goalline, we're almost at the 20. We must convert in the Red Zone!!

11-08-2002, 06:00 PM
I just heard a rumor that that ClumpedPlatelet guy has pledged NOT to e-mail full frontal nude pics of himself to anyone who contributes. However, everyone else out there just might be in for one rude, life-altering experience.

If this is true, A.J., Finheaven might end up in a position to buy the franchise. :)

dolfan87
11-08-2002, 06:25 PM
Oh man, are the Fin Heaven fans like Ray Lucas? Can they not FINISH A DRIVE?

Come on, who's getting that picture?!!!

We NEED a TD!

11-08-2002, 09:27 PM
$338 and dropping and we've only been doing this for like two days. Great job. This is for all of those laying back and waiting for others to pay for your website. If you haven't pulled the trigger on a pledge please do. If $ is tight we understand and $5 is $5, it's not the amount but the idea that when push came to shove you were there. C'mon somebody take us under $300 and then we're 80% there! Thanks one and all.

Only $123 more and we got it done in two days!!! AWESOME AND THEN SOME!!!! No bull, I'm really proud of the way Miami Dolphin Football Fans stepped up to save Finheaven.If you haven't helped yet now is the time. No pledge is a small pledge. The ball is on the 6 yard line, we got a first down and Finheaven members kick butt in the Red Zone. Who is going to take us to the promised land. That $1500 looked almost impossable 2 days ago!!It's downhill now!!!

Anyone know how to circumvent this?

Howdy Dolphin Fans! I met a few friendly Fin Fans at Training Camp this year in Nashville, and gave a couple of them free tickets to the scrimmage. I know what it takes to run a fan site both financially and time wise.

I just made a $10.00 contribution via PayPal.

Good luck to you!

I need to play Devil's advocate for a second. I'm leaning towards donating, but how do I know for sure we're all not getting scammed? Lord knows I'm on here just as much as anyone, but I don't know anyone involved with the site personally, so how can I be sure? Or do I just go on blind faith?

:confused:

I understand your concern. I really don't know what to tell you except that you will see a change in the site's performance and you will notice more changes to the site. There are many costs associated with the site as well... and I personally can not afford it as a student . I really don't know what more to tell you... sorry. :(

Sincerely,

11-09-2002, 11:36 PM
Alright AJ, I'll throw in $20. If we need to do this next year, I'll just let my Dolphin Digest subscription run out and sent you the $45 instead. (By the time I get it it's a week old anyway.) I figure that's worth the DCH camp reports alone! I don't have a Paypal account, I'll look at setting that up, otherwise, I'll send it snail mail. So now I think we're at $63?

11-10-2002, 12:41 PM
Wooohoooo People... give yourself a pat on the back. LOL. If everyone donates what they pledged, we will have more than enough to get a good server.

With chisox716's pledge of $63 and 32yrfinfan's $50 pledge... we are over... :cool:

Also to Trekbiz, profits? What's that? With that, we are going to look at getting a bigger, badder (is that even a word? lol) server.

I would like to say thanks to the following people that have Donated via PayPal thus far:

chisox716: $63.00
32yrfinfan: $50.00

Adphinistrator87: $50.00

Thanks to everyone that has donated, I will make sure to make a list of all the checks that I receive this week.

:hail: you guys... you're the best.

I can not say thanks enough... thank you... thank you... thank you.

also, burghPhinFan... thanks for donation, trust me you made the correct decision. Furthermore, hopefully we do not have to do this next year. As I've told many people, this (donations) is an avenue that I wll try not to come down again next season.

Good luck in the football pool... personally, I like the second place prize more.... lmao... :lol:

Count me in. Although we root for teams that are bitter rivals, you have a nice website. I like what you're doing. You've given football fans an opportunity to voice their opinions. I'm known on THEGANGGREEN.COM as MIAMIJET, and although I may not always agree with Blitz, Fin-atic, Dejesus, Phinphan and others, I do respect their love for their football team. I will send some flow your way within the next week or so. Hang tough, and thanks for the opportunity.....

Hey, Finsblow, I don't know about you, but I don't think most of us agree with Fin-atic, but that's just my opinion and from what I've seen. We don't get along great here, there is PLENTY of bickering, lol. Thanks for the donation.

I just wanted to let AJ know that I am still going to send $10 as I said earlyer this week. I got pretty sick with strep throat and bronchitis, so dr bills and perscription costs ruined my budget this week. The money will be out with my next pay check.

FinHeavenAJ
11-12-2002, 03:09 PM
Not a problem Dajesus, I hope you are starting to feel better... it may be going around this area because of the cold weather coming through every week... I hear that a colder cold front is coming in this week and my throat is starting to become itchy... we'll see.

Anyways, its the thought that counts man. If you can't pull it through, don't worry about it... I don't want to put you through hard times because of the donation.

Feel better soon man.... :cool:
