Just a bump to say that the vote runs through until early tomorrow morning... so we're nearing the finale for folk who wish to indicate that they'd lke to contribute to GR's funding.
It's been a terrific effort so far; right now, we have 20 people in the £2 bracket and 8 in the £1 bracket; that's £48 per month, equating to an amazing £576 per year! Plus we have an additional 15 people who indicate that they will make ad-hoc payments!
Thank you to those who have voted and to those who have said they can help out . Let's try and build on these indications to make the idea become reality!

Thank you again to those folk who voted and to those people who have indicated that they can help out! Let's keep the momentum going and make this happen!

I'm conscious you were looking into the payment arrangements, GG; do you need any other info at this point?
This is heartwarming to see because we are running a deficit on funds at the moment and I need to sort this out.
I have an insanely manic Monday lined up because a rush job came in on Thursday evening so I will look at it in the middle of the week, still investigating options at the moment as ideally I'd like it all on one page (except direct debit, I think that will have to be done 1 to 1).
Looking at the amounts I think I should be able to set it up so people can choose £1, £2 or any amount they like and whether or not that reoccurs each month i.e. a subscription. And that can be via PayPal or a debit card.
Thanks guys. I know it's a large target than before (about double, but close to what we actually received in previous "rounds"), and I'm still committed to setting up something recurring and easy to manage.

It's funny you mention that because I was thinking of taking a pic of myself as the smiley face behind GRcade but then, I realised that might be a bit weird because no I am not available for "services" and this isn't really about me (apart from my ability to pay for stuff and worry about how the hell I cover it later)

I know you're joking, but I'm going to code up one that gets manually updated. So at least it'll look "live".
