I just noticed (might have been there forever) a tab for donating to the magic Café. I think it would be useful (and encourage all of us) to know what the cost to keep this site up is.
I know wikipedia sends me an email once a year or so saying if everyone who uses their site donates $3. they will be just fine for another year.
I think this would be useful for all of us too. Of course this information might be somewhere here and I just didn't search thoroughly enough.

Cleverpaws, thanks for your concern however the Café is offered basically as a labor of love to the magic community. Steve has never charged anything for this and any funding comes either from Café sponsors, member donations orSteve himself. Everyone on staff is a volunteer donating their time for free. The operating costs of the Café really aren't important. If you'd like to help once in awhile, you can use the Magic Café Donations tab which has always been there. We welcome any donation.

Cleverpaws, to answer your question I'll simply say the following;

All donations made to The Magic Café® are sent directly to my tech people to help pay for all of their hard work - I do NOT see any of the funds.

Concerning operating costs, this changes month to month and since this website is not owned by stockholders I simply am not obligated to report this information to our membership.

Membership is FREE - always has been and always will be. Smile

If you feel the Café is helpful to you and your magic then by all means donate - if not, then don't and we are fine by that.

Hope this helps to answer any of your concerns.
