Donations towards forum hosting costs 2016

Postby Ford » Wed Jan 06, 2016 9:39 pm

Wow! hasn't time flown by?
It's 3 years since we had our first little fund-raiser push on the forum.

On the 5th march 2016 our hosting account is due for renewal.

$107.93 gets us 6 months
$172.66 - 12 months
$330.91 - 24 months
and $ 474.77 a full 3 years again.

Like last time I'm hoping we can raise enough to cover the next 3 years as that's the best value for money.

At the top right on every page you'll see a 'donate button'. If you feel the forum has been of use or interest to you and you'd like to add a little to the fund please give it a click. It's a paypal account but it can accept a variety of payments. Every little bit helps and we think the forum is a valuable resource worth keeping going, so don't be shy.

Thank you :Peace:

I'll get the ball rolling on this. Donation made!
The "silly question" is the first intimation of some totally new development...

Friday, but I'll be in for sure. It's kind of the least I can do considering what I've gleaned.

Cheers.

I've just woken up and am enjoying my customary cuppa while totting up your generous donations. Seems we've exceeded our immediate requirements and have $555 in our coffers. Thank you all (mostly the usual suspects ;-) ) for your support, it really is much appreciated and good to know you value the resource the forum we're continually adding to here.

If you're late to the party and would still like to contribute please feel free to do so, we still have a number of other maintenance issues to deal with, all of which take time and cost money. The most pressing being a complete software upgrade (we're about 2 years out of date :-p ) and forum overhaul..... :?

Thanks again to all of you who've put your hands in your pockets to keep us going. That's one less matter for me to worry about this year. :Peace:

...and that's the next 3 years hosting costs paid, thank you all once again for your generous support. I'm certain a great number of people will continue to benefit from the forum's continued existence. :cloud9:

My tiny bit is in, the exchange rate is not in my favour. :( Lots of ZAR = very few US$ :(
