1) Thanks for the kudos.
2) Our policy is to not raise rates more than 6% in any calendar year, but having said that I don't see domain or subscription costs rising any time soon.
3) If you're looking to raise funds for the site, reunion, class outing or any other purpose, I suggest using the built in PayPal Donate Module available under your home page edit area. Followed by sending a class wide email to inform your Classmates donations are being accepted.
4) No problem asking about our stability, it just gives me a chance to boast a little bit. Here's a snapshot of the Class Creator growth chart:
Half a million Classmates are on the system now. Even if no schools ever signed up again, which would be incredibly unlikely since an average of 8 new schools come on board every day, we'd be just fine long term with the sites we already have. The people involved in this system are all Internet Professionals who have been doing this type of work for 12 years. It's the full time career for all of us. So while there are no 100% guarantees in the world, no, I really can't see any reason why Class Creator won't be here for many, many years to come. This isn't just our job, it's our passion.
