Hey there,

People have been asking for a donation button, there is now a donation button on the bottom of any page you go to.

Feel free to leave donations if you would like.
I am not asking for donations, but they are appreciated.
All donations will go toward the running of this forum.

If you donate, please put your username in the message box so I know who the awesome person is that donated.

Thanks!
-Brumbie

Nice job. PayPal too. I never have my cards while surfing.

Okay, so how much does it cost per month to run the forum? It'll help for us making donations.

Right now, my plan is $35/mo to host. That could go up depending on the forum use.

What I plan on doing is letting the funds build up in the PayPal account.
I will continue to pay for the hosting out of pocket, but if I have a time period when money is tight, I'll use the donated funds.
That way, regardless of my own financial situation, the forum will be taken care of.

I was refused last time, 'cos of low blood pressure. :disappointed:
Luckily, my credit card doesn't suffer from the same symptoms. :D

Hey Brumbie, Just checking, you probably all ready know this but make sure the host does not just charge for bandwidth overage - I had one that did that to us, just sent us a huge bill for going over our allotted value. We got unlimited now to fix that problem.

I just kicked in. Brumbie, you should use Club funds to pay the monthly hosting costs. You do enough for us with effort, no need to do dollars, also!

Then, if/when funds run low, just let the gang know and we can kick in for more. It should work............... maybe.........

Thanks to you and the moderator team for all you do.

My wife just started working and we're finally doing okay. It was a rough 10 months with her being out of work. I'm able to support the forum on my own again.

I am am grateful to all of those who donated to keep the forum afloat, without you, we would have gone down.
Donations are always appreciated, of course, but the forum is no longer in danger of going down.

Thanks for asking!
