Welcome Guest! In order to take advantage of all the great features that Waterloo Region Connected has to offer, including participating in the lively discussions below, you're going to have to register. The good news is that it'll take less than a minute and you can get started enjoying Waterloo Region's best online community right away. Click here to get started.

Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Posting here just to note that the site has been very responsive for the past few months (or more), with no error messages. And the "What's new" link runs the search very quickly now. Thanks for working out the problems!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you're having a good experience, I haven't noticed any issues either.

Reminder to everyone here -- let's not forget to pitch in, to keep WRC the great resource and community that it has grown into.  It doesn't take many of us to keep the bills paid, if we can pitch in the cost of a half dozen coffees per year.

Just want to thank everyone for their amazing generosity.  Once again, I'm absolutely blown away that people who are complete strangers step up and put forward money to help support this community.  I've said it once, and I'll say it a million times, each and every member is why this site is such a success.  It's not just me or the other administrators and mods, it's each and every one of you.  I'm very proud to be a part of this!

I'm happy to say that we've met our goal for the year, costs are covered again!  You all rock!!!

Keep us posted Justin - $10 or $20 a couple of times a year is peanuts for the service and community here, I think. Cities two or three times the size of KW don't even have communities as active and intelligent as this one - we're a lucky bunch, for sure.

Everyone here, if you have not yet made a small donation to help keep this site running, please consider doing so now.  Pitching in the cost of a cappuccino or a pint of beer can make a difference in keeping this site on the air.  Running the site is not free, let's all of us do our part.
