  • May I tell you something Lexie won't????

    Hey, all. It's just smee. I see that Lexie has started several topics trying to get everyone involved in supporting this website. She is so nice, it kills her to ask for help; but it has to be done. I want to tell you some things she hesitates to say:

    1) This lovely new website and the server to run it were very expensive -- from what I can ascertain, close to $5,000 to get up and running. Monthly expenses (which continue even during the BB offseason) are higher, too. But without these upgrades, the entire site would have been gone -- dunzo -- absolutely nonexistent. I am not exaggerating -- there would be no BBU this year.

    2) Live feed subscriptions are much fewer than in previous years, so the income to BBU from the live feeds is way down, too.

    3) Donations this year are considerably down over prior years, while expenses are up. This is serious, if we want to stay together. Rob, Lexie and the mods have depleted their own funds to keep things going over the years; but they cannot afford to carry things like this anymore. We need to step up.

    As I said above, I am not anyone important here, no one you have to listen to; I'm just smee -- but I love BBU and all of the friends I have made here. I am asking all of you who read this, please, search your hearts and your checkbooks, and help in any way you can. The need cannot be ignored. Thank you.

    (If any mod thinks this is important enough, would you please sticky this topic? Thanks.)

    Way to go Smee! Couldn't agree more. Hope all who enjoy reading and coming here can help out so we can keep coming here to discuss and read about our favorite show and obsession. I like reading the updates and everyone's analysis as much or more than watching the show. A little donation by a lot of people can add up.

      I can try to donate close to payday. Things are little tighter this year than last.

        I need the "applause" sound from the chat room! Well said, smee! Thanks. BTW, you ARE someone important as is each and every one of our members here.

              Hi Ramona. Did you add your username in the ''Note to Seller'' area when you made your donation through PayPal? If not, simply use the ''Contact Us'' button at the bottom of this page to let Lexie know and she'll fix you right up. Be sure to send her your username, email address and amount of donation. Thanks!

              I never saw a place to put user name in. Oh well.

              OhThisHouse, I made a donation last night and could not find the ''Note to Seller'' button either. Kept looking and looking. Finally had someone else look to see if my old eyes were just tricking me. Nope, it wasn't there so I guess, ever now and then, it just ain't there. This is the second time it has happened to me. All the other times, I've seen it. Just contact them at BBU and Lexie will take care of it.

            Nope! I sure didn't do that, KennyERJ!
            I apologize! I'll follow directions from now on!

                If everyone does a little, it will add up. I really appreciate everything Lexie, Rob and the moderators do to keep this place up and running.

                Ramona and DizzyDeb, I hope to see you posting in the discussion forms.

                  Just made another contribution. I hardly ever post, but constantly lurk. Been doing so for years. Thanks to Lexie & Rob for keeping this site up and running.

                  Thanks for everything Lexie, Rob and all the wonderful Mods. I have been a member for 11 years, I can't believe it! This is the only site that I am a member of, that I actually join in conversation post my opinion or thoughts. I so enjoy the comeradery here, the analysis of so many great posters is amazing. Sure I occasionally check out other sites, but they are no comparison to BBU. BBU is where I am most at home. I will gladly make another donation. Thank you BBU!

                  I just made my weekly donation. I like to call it "feeding the kitty" and when I haven't been drinking too much wine , I like to post this graphic

                  ('cause I'm a Cheeky Monkey who Loves PINK and KITTIES )

                  I was thinking today HOW HARD @ Lexie works for us here at BBU. Lots of people do (and I appreciate you all), but I was thinking only of Lexie this afternoon. She works at a REAL job (one that pays her to show up and perform every day) AND she is constantly 'catching us up real quick' on the LFU.....PLUS she writes articles on the latest major BB House events, fights, conversations AND posts screen caps from the live feeds! I know I COULD NOT do all of that, could you? And from what I gather from the post above from @ ~smee~ she is ALSO pouring in her OWN money to keep this playground of ours a float!

                  WHO DOES THAT???????? @ Lexie does! It's called a 'labor of love'. It's called commitment! Maybe it is also born from the love of the members....those who post analyses, comments, LFU....those who she 'sees' lurking, to shy to post; maybe it's to invite the 'guests' who constantly drop in to sample her wares, to actually JOIN our community?

                  My commitment is a 'weekly' donation. What is YOUR commitment? Even if it is 'check the couch for lose change monthly' it helps! My plea in this diatribe, is to search your heart, search your budget, contribute what you feel is comfortable....but DO CONTRIBUTE...if you feel that this website, this SAFE PLAYGROUND WE CALL HOME FOR THE SUMMER, adds to your enjoyment of BIG BROTHER.

                  Thank you. That is all. And stuff.

                  PS: HOW GREAT HAS THE DRAMA THIS SEASON BEEN????

                  PPS: Can you tell that I LOVE graphics????? IF YOU CAN.....D O N A T E !
