definitely. put up a set amount per month, say a grand and put a metre up.
"this is evolt's expenses for this month". then have a link there to an
explanation of what that's paying for. make sure to note there that the
volunteers behind the scenes are doing this for free (as well as giving
their own time  /money...). oh, and definitely above the fold. prominent but
not overpowering.

You mean that we take away the member hosting for anything but a blogspace
and point them at f2o or something if they need more? I'm cool with that...
I was gonna shift over anyway.
