    Hi All,

    I put up a blog post to detail out everything: Funding Dilemma

    If you have additional questions, please let me know. I'll be monitoring this thread.

    Cheers,
    Pamela

    PS Astrosphere is still pending with the IRS, but I have someone working on it pro bono. We had a provisional 501(c)(3) and applied for our permanent status (which is pending), and we had a paperwork problem - there was a rule change I missed where it went from if you earn less than $50k you sit tight, to if you earn less than $50k you submit a postcard.

    Thanks very much for this.

    I have just written a reply/comment to your blog post (it's "awaiting moderation"). I'd be happy to post it here too. Would you prefer discussion to take place via replies to your blog post, or here (or both)?

    Hi Jean,

    I'll go kick it out of moderation and reply there. Either place works, but no sense duplicating effort.

    Cheers,
    Pamela

    Thank you, Dr. Gay, for responding here. Here's what's concerning me: The forum status is "fair". It, however, is a relatively small part of CQ and the large projects are "in danger". I can (and most likely will) help with the forum but what sort of future does it have if the large projects go under? What can we do to ensure its continued existence?

    I'll send a PM as well.

    Is there a direct link for donations specifically for the CQ forum? I can't really swing 200 bucks a month, but I bet I can come up with something.

    Hi Solfe,

    The SIUE CosmoQuest account is used to pay for servers and salaries. I'm afraid we don't have a separate account for the forums at this time.

    Thanks Pamela.

    I will post here, in future, rather than add comments/replies to your blog post.
