Default What costs are associated with this forum?

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if anyone knows what costs are associated with this forum. I'm asking because I'm wondering if donations are needed. Even though the moderator(s) are volunteers, I'm thinking there must be some costs associated with running the forum.

Anyone know?

Thanks, Sadiemae. I saw that link but was just wondering what donations are used for (i.e. to pay for web hosting, tech support, etc.). This forum provides such a valuable service; I got thinking about what it costs to run it and if that's a challenge at all.
