    Emergency fund?!?

    neilarey , I donated earlier this month, but I see that the emergency fund is still running out. However, there doesn't seem to be a lot of concern.

    I will donate again as soon as I can but shouldn't there be some sort of appeal to the hive?

    ​​​​​​Wouldn't it be a good idea for the team to post something direct on the front page?

    I was wondering about that image a bit. Is the percentage bar the amount of money in the Emergency Fund or the amount of the Emergency Fund expended? Just wondering if the money is coming in or bleeding out. Either way, tomorrow's pay day, so donation incoming!

      I'm almost certain that the current 96% mean that 96% of the emergency fund are full, so the danger is not as great as when I first donated, when it was still at 46% or something like that. I also think that it probably suffices to have one thread on this, the one with the most interaction seems to be this one.

        Hi! We are at 100% finally which means we have our emergency fund refilled and set aside again. We inevitably end up taking money from it to compensate for lower donation weeks (usually towards the middle of the month) but it should last us a while again. Over the years we've managed to extend its lifespan by almost double so we don't go into critical as often as we used to and that is a good sign. Eventually we hope to never see it again. The more people know about us, the more people use the site the more the costs rise but so do the donations. It's all about finding the right balance and, well, communicating our needs better, too.

        It's a process

          Thanks neilarey , I think I misunderstood the emergency fund % slider anyway. I saw it as % gone, when it was intended as % filled. 🤗
