1) The Corner Needs Your Help

You love the Corner, and the Corner loves having you around, but the Corner needs your help. Our server is getting old (over 65 in computer years!) and we need a new one - badly. In addition, as mobile computing becomes more and more popular, we'd like to be able to create an iPhone/Android app that you can download (for free) to browse the Corner a little easier. Unfortunately, the cost of both upgrading the server and producing and releasing an app is fairly expensive. Advertising does cover most of the day-to-day operating costs of the Corner, but these upgrades/additions are going to cost above and beyond what the Corner makes in standard advertising. Luckily, as an active member of the Corner, you can help!!

We have a goal to raise $3,500, which will pay for all the server upgrades, as well as the increased monthly costs of the new server for the next year+. In addition, your donations will allow for the production and release of a PhotographyCorner iPhone and Android app (which will be available for FREE).

To further incentivize you to make a donation, we also have over 25 prizes valued at $1000+. The more you donate, the more chances you have to pick yourself up some prizes. Get all the details on the fund raiser (how much we've raised, how much more we need to raise, the prizes you can win, etc) and make your donation here today: http://goo.gl/VhaoV We're almost 1/3rd of the way there - can you help?

6) Help Shape the Corner

You're an active participant in the forums; you read all the blog posts, you enter some contests, and you've even made a donation to the 2011 Corner Fund Raiser (you have made a donation already, right $username?), so it's only fair that you have your say in what's going on around the Corner. So I want you to take a couple of minutes to think about it, then send me a private message on the forums ( http://goo.gl/BdCSr ) and tell me one thing you would change/add/do to make PhotographyCorner an even better online destination for photographers. Just one thing. Could be big, or small. Could be doable, or just a dream. But I want you to think about it, then let me know. Help shape the photography community you love and enjoy.



See you around the Corner,
Tim L. Walker
