Donate Button - DON'T PANIC
« on: January 09, 2004, 00:02:10 »
Hi All,

As you may notice, I have placed a paypal donate button at the bottom of the page.

As I have said before I have no intention of forcing people to pay, and I do not want anyone to feel they are not welcome if they do not donate.

It is purely a voluntary donation button.

I am awaiting responses from various companies - hopefully one or more of who will want to pay for some sponsorship.

Again let me say - the button is purely voluntary.

Hopefully everyone understands, and no one is offended / frightened off from the site.

Cheers

Dan

Dan just tried paypal and too many questions and all that jazz.. but will find a way to make a donation...

Is there anyway you could get a PO BOX up and running?  Dan you have me email address could you not open up a paying in account only and email me details that way I could swing some squidleys your way...

just a thought Dan....

or just email me a post office where I can wire you the money.... really do want to help mate as this is a cracking site....

Hi Dan,

Don't worry, I don't think anyone here will be offended or frightened away!!  we're an understanding bunch  :)

I'll try to scrape together some pennies for a donation.

Keep up the good work... this site is the best!!

Just made our donation  :)

We may not post much but we certainly absorb all the useful information you all supply on here.  Well worth paying for in our opinion.

Made a note in our calendar to remind us to donate again in a years time.

Hopefully the money you receive from donations and sponsored links will be enough to keep the site running.

Oz,

I am in the process of setting up a PB Box so that people who want to donate, but do not want to use a card on the internet can.

I'll put the details up when I have them.

Thanks

Dan
