ballet talk admin question

Not sure this should go here, but a very basic question...

 

who pays for this? Is it run by a grant or arts education funding? Where is it administered from? I guess it's not the most critical information to know, but I was just curious.

Essentially, the board is paid for by the free-will donations from the members. We have a "fund drive" which is coming up in September, and we'll tell people how to donate through PayPal or any other mechanism we use. We also get a small amount of "finder's fee" from Amazon.com for anybody buying from them through the click-on banner at the top of every page. One of the Administrators (Helene) acts as our treasurer, and makes sure that Invision Power Boards gets paid.

About the Amazon bar- does BT get anything if I buy something used? Is it significantly less than what they would get if I bought something new? I've sold on there before and if you list items, Amazon takes a commission, but it depends on how much the item is sold for.

 

I just wondered because I'm getting ready to order some things, and one isn't much more expensive new than used, but the other one has a large difference. I could order the first one new for about $2 more, so if they get more from it new, I will get that one.

As I understand it, anything that is sold through Amazon by clicking through the bar on Ballet Talk or Ballet Talk for Dancers does generate revenue for us.

Wow.. I'll remember that! I buy textbooks and other things off Amazon frequently.

So do I. And, school starts back up pretty soon for me. :) Now that I know, I'll be sure to stop by here and go through the link anytime I need to buy something.

Mods, does this only work if you go to amazon.com? I frequently use amazon.ca and would be happy to access it through the above link if theres a way?

Good question, Sashinka! I have no clue, but maybe Mr. Johnson will know???

Never having had a need for it, I don't know. I tried to access it through the amazon.com search, but that brought me to a bunch of unassociated hardwares, and things about California. When I searched the web via the A9 Search engine at the site, I noted that the URL for amazon.ca had lost our distinctive identifier string, so I guess not.
