hi there, some of you may have noticed the "DONATE" button that is popping up occasionally on top of the page, this
is meant for supporting the forums, and i now have the need to make some aquirements, that i could need some help....

right now my bank account is closed, and so i have severe problems financing stuff ...

1st server update ... a server update for hosting of unlimited webspace, and higher memory and concurrent threads would double the hosting costs, ad-income is now at 30€/month and
hosting costs would be 30€/month, so this should make it, but as you know i have payed the last 5 years for the hosting, and i wont upgrade the server until mid of the year, because i
just want to build up some resources ... i have an offer for 3 month free for hosting ... but nonetheless this is one post that has to be made sure off

2nd regarding the upcomming tv show i would need some hardware ...
 * a microphone ~30€ should be sufficent
 * a full hd webcam with 25fps ~80€ should be sufficent
 * lighting set up ~dunno how much this would cost ..

so, i hereby invite you to show your commitmend to the forums be droping some coins at the paypal "DONATE" button ...

there wont be any specials that i can offer by now for people who paid, but be sure you will have a place deep in my heart wink

 
 the paypal email is: donate --------------   at ----------------------- fractalforums.com

maybe you could place the donnation link resident (and maybe sticky) in this thread. it would be nice to have the opportunity to donnate when having the time to donnate.
i'll surely buy a place in your heart the next days wink, but yet i'd be contented, when i might help, keeping this nice place lively...

it would be best if people could use some tiny amounts ... on a regularly base ... e.g. 2,50€/month ...
it would be great to have some payouts right this year for people contributing to the calendar 2013, and to have some funds to fund the annual compo coffe cups ...

ehem, when i click the donnate button i get an "are you sure..." dialog - confirmation leads me back to the thread... Azn

yay, was patient enough, to get a working donnation button at the top...

please update the button in the thread!

no specialties? at least german tax-payers get a donnation bill (while i don't know if tax authorities accept it)

humm, yes, you are right ...


i guess it won't be accepted by tax authorities. for beeing accepted as offset against tax the donnation has to go to an accredited charity organization - at least in germany. and i assume ff is not... grin

ps now the button is gone completely canadian

suppose you do not have a pay pal account, or it is not the way you want to pay. Is there any other set up?

I think you would be wise to set up a receipt system to the members messages folder, and for those outside of the membership who want o donate, some kind of confirmation of receipt.

I am grateful to you for maintaining the site, and as you say you need all kinds of help now including financial. I am wishing for you all the support that you need, and may we be bringing you "loaves and fishes" to feed the 5000!
