Good time to tell all the people involved with the forum how much I appreciate what they do. Thank you Roy H. And all the other moderators for making this place one of my favorite places on the internet. Iím thrilled it will continue

I cannot echo this statement loud enough. Many thanks to all current & previous mods and anyone else who has helped along the way.

Just donated what I could at this time & cant wait to see the new platform!

My fiance asked me one time, "How do you know so much about everything?"  First, she's far from correct on that assessment of me, but by "everything", she was referring to Israel/Palestine history and relations, SCOTUS cases and judges, net neutrality, 2nd amendment/guns perspectives, foreign affairs, US federal taxation, etc. 

My response to her was: "Celticsblog"

You can maybe imagine her reaction was laughing in disbelief.  I told her I was serious and I had to physically show her the threads of in-depth, intelligent, (mostly) respectful discussion on these topics to prove this to her.  She was pretty shocked to see it.

This site community is a true gem.  For somebody like me who is a die-hard basketball fan, loves the Celtics, and loves to hear perspectives from all sides of arguments on current events, this place has been a blessing for me.  Makes me really appreciate what a gift the internet is and appreciate even more all the hard work that so many people have put in to build up and maintain this wonderful community.

I'm stoked that this community is not going to disappear and am happy to contribute an Eddie House to its continuation.  I'd be missing a lot without it.

  • A true Celtic plays with heart.
Donated, although not that much, been struggling through hard times.

But something that's always been a bright light for me whenever I had a terrible day was Celticsblog.

CelticsStrong sounds almost as good.  :P :angel:

Chipped in $20.  This place has been a good online hangout for me for 10 years now.  I appreciate you guys for keeping it going.

Tossed in $25.  Donation doesn't show up yet but we're really close to the goal.  CelticsBlog must live on!

Yet another TP to byennie.  Thanks for everything man.

Don't worry about us meeting the goal. If we go over, the money will all be reinvested into the site and help us keep the site up until it becomes self reliant.

I am guessing at some point we might have to look at advertising but that will be up to others to decide.
