Annual BBI Contribution Campaign

Eric from BBI : Admin : 9/10/2020 9:37 am
2020 has been a tough year for everyone, including the online community that depends on advertising. This has been especially true in the sports community. The economic downturn and declining ratings have made it difficult for ad networks and those who depend on them. This has been exacerbated by a declining lack of interest in the upcoming 2020 NFL season.

After much thought and discussion with my family, I have decided to commit to at least one more season of BBI and will base future plans on how the current contribution campaign does as well as the level of interest in football on the website in 2020.

For at least the past decade, there has been a core group of a few hundred BBI contributors who have kept the site in being. Each year, these "regulars" are the ones who come through. It has reached the point where I recognize the same names on an annual basis. The thank-you notes and cards are always read and appreciated.

I always try to send everyone a thank-you note when I have a valid e-mail address, but just let it be known that I truly appreciate everyone who helps out.

Go Giants!

I knew I didn't miss something this year!

I singed up in 06 but was a lurker for years prior. It will be a sad day when you shut down the doors on this place. I hope that's not in the future plan's but I guess time will tell.

I visit the site daily in season and off and has always been a great resource not only Giants related but simple idea's and recommendations in the NFT area.

Go Giants!

Thanks for another year, Eric.

Just sent it through PayPal Eric!

I've been on this site since I was in High School. I'm now 37 years old and a day doesn't go by that I don't check the Forum. I can't imagine my life without BBI. Thanks Eric! Please keep up the good work!
Done! I'm happy to say that after

two years since I was laid off and getting by on savings and gig work, I was finally hired full-time and start my new job next week. I'm always glad to contribute as much as I can when flush :)

I hope enough other BBIers can pitch in what they can to keep BBI going. This season may be more frustrating than not, but if the re-building/development continues, BBI will be a lot of fun at times this year and especially in 2021!
Thanks for all that you do, Eric

If the forum ultimately ends I would love to see a BigBlueInteractive subreddit created on reddit where the community can still interact and post - and even have mods.
Just donated. Thanks for all the hard work Eric

I was looking for this year's donation thread, Eric...  
richynyc : 9/10/2020 5:56 pm : link
...and now that you've posted it for this year I donated immediately, as I have every year I've been a member, since the very beginning of BBI. And even though my family real estate business here in NYC that has taken a pretty significant financial hit since COVID, we are still OK. So I have upped my annual BBI contribution by 150%. BBI is a vital part of my life and without it my life would be much the poorer.

If you and your family ultimately decide that this is not worth you continuing, Eric, i will fully understand. But it would be a real loss in my life.

I hope that those of us in the BBI community who derive so much from this site and value it give to this fund to the greatest extent you can comfortably manage.
I'm in  
zxasqw12 : 9/10/2020 6:24 pm : link
Thanks Eric- I'm here virtually every day. It would be a real drag if you and BBI weren't around. I mean that sincerely.

Thank you for all you do. I have been derelict the past few years in sending in a contribution, but I will do so this year.

I think I asked this last year and you said no, but I'll ask again: do you use Venmo?
Eric from BBI : Admin : 9/10/2020 8:48 pm : link

Beer Man... Halloween... details are in the link.

Lawguy, no on Venmo...check or PayPal (which also allows credit card use).

I donated more this year. Why? BBI and the forum are a necessary distraction, I value more this year, even if my financial situation is less rosy then last year.

Thanks Eric and thanks everyone who contributes.
anyone who uses this site daily  
DavidinBMNY : 9/11/2020 5:33 pm : link
Should be contributing 10 cents a day minimum. That's $37 bucks towards BBI. Do it people.

Quote: the long-term vitality of BBI. This is, in part, because of an unusually diverse mix of members but, even more so, because of your continuing dedication to providing some of the best Giants info and insight around. I don't look forward to the day when we'll have to say farewell; it will be a lasting regret.

Thanks for everything, good, bad, and in-between.
Great post.
I doubled mine from $50 to $100  
Payasdaddy : 9/11/2020 7:42 pm : link
Reason I post the amount because trying to get an idea if I am cheap, in line or considered a solid amount
I did double it contribution from last yr
Heck I will double it again next yr to keep this going next yr.
The amount of time i spend here? probably an hr a day
well worth it to me hope everyone steps up if able to
Thanks Eric!

This is my first stop for NYG news and opinions - sometimes terrible opinions :-) but my first stop nonetheless.

Appreciate your efforts and dropped you my annual donation last night.

Thanks Eric
Upped my donation as well.
