Yes. (Sort of.)
This time, we have a special link that will let you register your support for ITL when you get a new membership or renew yours online:
http://bit.ly/ITLMember1 (or click that button above)
What using this link does: Gives us a basic count of people who want to indicate their support for the show.
What this does not do: Provide any direct financial support to In The Loop; allow us to track individual member info, or contribution amounts.
It's basically just a "pass-through" link, like a ticker on a subway turnstile. But it'll be fun to see the number when the drive wraps up (and useful for us and our bosses). It doesn't change anything about your membership process.
If you'd like to make more of an impression, you can also put "In The Loop" in the comments about why you contribute. People who take that extra step will give us some baseline sense of what $$$ ITL is able to contribute to the drive.
I take it you're required to give in order for your support to be registered? I'm already a member (2 years now) and am not able to give an additional gift at this time and renewed in the last member drive. I'd still like your bosses to know that I support you.
Aside from my tweet and this comment, of course.
Ryan, in Minneapolis. @ryaninmpls
Hey Ryan. Yep, we certainly wouldn't ask you to join again!
Truth is, it's just a bit.ly link we're using to log the interest in the concept. So if you would like to have you membership count for In The Loop, you can still click the link and have your vote counted.
