Dear WRConnected Users: Six years! Can you believe it?!? We've grown so much over the past six 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. In the past, many of you gave donations which were incredibly generous (thank you!!). Now as many of you know we have premium memberships in their place. Buying a premium membership not only gets you perks, but it helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Thank you.
