Supporting the Operating Costs of the Forum

Post by Mel Lindauer » Thu Sep 25, 2014 3:24 pm

Hello Everyone:

This post is from a long-timer regular who wanted to remain anonymous. I'm posting it on his behalf at his request.
The recent thread on the cost of operating this forum reminded me that I had planned to donate some money but hadn’t gotten around to it.

If someone came to you from your community and said,

“we have an organization that is here to help the people of this community improve their lives by helping them learn how to help themselves and stand on their own but we are underfunded and need to support our resources to continue the mission.”

What would you do? You’d probably listen and if you could, you’d offer some financial assistance to help them continue.

That is what this forum is. While those of us who are regulars probably get some benefit, we also invest a fair amount of time responding to inquiries. So for us, the forum is probably a wash in terms of personal cost and benefit.

But think about the hundreds (thousands?) of people who sign in who are not regulars and may not invest as much of their personal time on the forum. They are the real beneficiaries. They stand to lose if the forum were to disappear. They are the young person just starting out who has no clue about saving and investing, the widow or widower who for the first time is faced with unraveling the financial hairball that the recently deceased spouse created, the confused tax filer who has nowhere to turn and can’t afford to pay for tax advice or even simply the investor who “got it right” developing a plan but just needs some confirmation before pulling the trigger. I could go on. You’ve seen them all here.

I just donated some money to support Bogleheads.Org. I invite everyone else to join in and give what you can.
Best Regards - Mel | | Semper Fi

Done, at least for today.

For Mel, thanks for the reminder--I need a good reminder, something like "The PBS Pledge Week."

Have done it via Amazon purchases and I just sent another donation using the donate button, I know what it takes to maintain a website (could be a pain).

I suggest that if a member of the forum contributes a minimum amount, that they be recognized in some way by indicating that they are a contributing member next to their username. As an example, can they be identified as premium members? Can there be a gold star or some symbol next to their username? Is it possible to allow only premium members to use certain features? For example, maybe the "view your posts" feature would only be available to premium members?

I think doing something along those lines would significantly increase the amount of contributions because those who contribute would be recognized on the forum and it would become a matter of pride, and I would prefer that to the option of allowing advertising.

Establish a DAF, fund it with some shares of an investment for which you want to avoid paying cap gains tax, and use it to donate to the John C Bogle Center for Financial Literacy. See: http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/The_Bogl ... l_Literacy

The Center could do a bit more to increase visibility, for example submit info to Guidestar so this page is fleshed out and current: http://www.guidestar.org/organizations/ ... eracy.aspx

I contributed via a Fidelity DAF this Spring. Easy peasy.

I think a little button is a good idea. Some sites have a tiny tag that shows you are a support of XYZ.
No one is pressured or forced to support any site; but it does give an incentive for some to support that might not ordinarily.

PS Just made a donation. But the above is not because of that fact.

It's built into the referral code, which is the "tag=bogleheads.org-20" part of the link as shown below.

Code: Select all

http://www.amazon.com/s/?search-alias=aps&tag=bogleheads.org-20&field-keywords=Bogleheads
The URL might change as you browse through the site, but Amazon.com has captured the tag and is keeping track.

In early 2014, I was deliberating the date of my retirement. As I kept delaying it, some Bogleheads started teasing me that I would be postponing it forever. In response, I set the final date. Then another final date, then another. And then I issued a statement as follows:

26 July is clearly better than 12 July, because I'll get an extra paycheck. It pains me to miss your anniversary, but prudence wins. There are two possible circumstances that may delay my retirement by another month or so. I will try to avoid them but may not be able to. If that happens, here is my public pledge:

For every day that my retirement date is later than 26 July 2014, I will contribute $10 per day to the Bogleheads Forum, within the limits from the minimum of $100 to the maximum of $500.
I ended up retiring at end of September, and thus my contribution should be the maximum, i.e., $500. A few minutes ago, I paid $50 via PayPal to Alex's account. In a few days, after I see how the charge shows in my credit card, I will pay the balance.

Why is this running from someone's basement? I had a political website on line a few years ago, and it cost me something like $4.95 a month to rent space on a server.

Glad you finally escaped the rat-race, Victoria. And proud of you for living up to your pledge. It definitely goes to support a great non-commercial resource (this forum).

Hope you're enjoying your retirement. Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy, prosperous (and adventurous) 2015!

And that rented space on a server would not get nearly the same bandwidth, disk space, and computing resources needed to support 1 million hits a day (what Larry's webpage says Bogleheads.org gets) at $4.95 a month. For $4.95 a month, you were probably rate limited to something like 25k hits a month (if not less) and Bogleheads.org would be cut off within hours of operating. Even if we discount the rate limiting by going with some "unlimited" plan, Bogleheads.org would definitely have been shut off for "hogging" the resources, i.e. using more CPU and RAM than allocated, and messing up the other websites on the shared server. And that doesn't even touch the disk space limitations that the service would impose on the database that stores all these forum posts.

For a website like Bogleheads.org, you're looking at needing at least one dedicated server (preferably more) and sufficient bandwidth allocations to support the traffic flow. Now you're talking about the $200-300/month territory for dedicated server service (and even that might not be enough to get a beefy enough server). It's not cheap to outsource hosting when you get into the page views and server resource requirements that a website of this size requires.

If you can provide the appropriate power (e.g. 30-50A 208V), a good Internet up-link (OC-1 is great, but it looks like Bogleheads is on Verizon FIOS which has similar capacities in the higher rate plans), and decent hardware in your basement for an equivalent or lesser monthly cost (of course there would be a higher initial costs, which is what people are trying to avoid by using services), why not? You'd have more control over the infrastructure and if you already do this sort of setup for your employer, it's easy enough to do for your hobby as well.

Does Vanguard provide any financial support for the servers?

I'm guessing no given the topic of this thread. But why don't they? If it wasn't for the forum, many of us wouldn't have found Vanguard - including myself.

I think it is important to distinguish what Vanguard founder, our beloved Mr Bogle believes in vs a company he has started and owned by company's fund holders. Mixing them both is a bad idea. This is a corporation and not a MLP/private entity to do what people believe in.

That said there is a non profit that shadows and helps this site. Look at Mel's comments in

A good thread, if anyone is planning a donation but looking for possible tax deduction.

The maintainers of the forum likely want to have greater control over the hosting than you had with your $4.95 shared server space, so they would want at least a dedicated VM at a hosting provider. I'm guessing a VM with full console access was a fairly expensive commodity when the forum was first set up - and even today will cost a lot more than $4.95/mo.

Yes. If you want/need the tax deduction, then you'd contribute to The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy, an IRS-approved 501c3 corporation. You can specify that you'd like that the donation be used to help support the bogleheads.org forum and we'll comply with your wishes.
