I have come to the point where I have acquired enough email addresses, that I can start issuing emails.
What I have:
- @the-spot.net : 900
- @tsnlocal.net : 49
- @the-blot.net : 38
- @the-blot.com: 40
The emails at the-blot.net and the-blot.com are hosted at hotmail, with the Microsoft Live Hotmail beta with 2GB of space.
The emails at tsnlocal.net are hosted with Gmail, with 2GB of space.
And the emails for the-spot.net are hosted on tsn, which can be downloaded to your Outlook or accessed at the-spot.net/webmail with about 100mb of space on the web, but that can be downloaded to your computer in Outlook or Outlook Express, or any other mail client on your computer.
I will be setting these up in the freeformfrog.com store within the next week or two, for access. So here’s the deal:
If you want an email @the-spot.net, your options are:
- A donation of $2/month (or more would be appreciated) will be billed monthly
- Or, a donation of $20/year billed yearly (again, you can choose to donate more if you’d like)
If you want an email @the-blot.net or @the-blot.com, your options are:
- A donation of $3/month (or more) will be billed monthly
- Or, a donation of $30/year (or more) billed yearly
For access to tsnlocal.net and an email @tsnlocal.net (hosted by Google’s Gmail):
- If you help beta test the service, you get a FREE 1-yr subscription to it, and a FREE tsnlocal.net email account.
- A donation of $5/month (or more) will be billed monthly
- Or, a donation of $50/year (or more) billed yearly
All the donations will go towards maintaining that portion of the site. TSN’s donations will be used to sponsor further server costs, and costs of development. The-Blot.Net/.Com’s donations will go towards domain name and server expenses for the development and release of the site. And the donations for tsnlocal will go towards the electricity cost it takes to run the servers to enable search capabilities and hosting the web server locally (that’s why it’s slightly more).
But with these subscriptions and donations, you get a gift based on your level of donation above what is mentioned:
- Bronze Member: A donation of $0.25/month ($3.00/year), billed once, will get you a bronze member graphic above your rank on the site, telling everyone that you are a member of that site (the-spot, the-blot, tsnlocal).
- Silver Member: A donation of $0.50/month ($6.00/year), billed once, will get you a silver member graphic, AND a FREE bumper sticker for your car from the freeformfrog.com store, with your site name, and “the-spot.net” (or one of the other tsn sites) on it.
- Gold Member: A donation of $1.50/month ($18.00/year), billed once, will get you a gold member graphic, AND a FREE hat or license plate cover with your site name and “the-spot.net” (or one of the other tsn sites)
- Platnium Member: A donation of $2.50/month ($30.00/year), billed once, will get you a platnium member graphic, AND a FREE custom made t-shirt from the freeformfrog.com online store.
All these things will be announced more in the coming weeks on the-spot.net and other tsn sites. Be looking for the announcements.
