Hey up all,

I put up a paypal donate button for those that want to help keep the lights on.

Any and all support would certainly be appreciated, and for those that do:

1) Please submit forum username when completing at paypal, then the members can recognize you also

2) Once I know a username, I can go to the profile and add them as 'Site Supporter', and then a new banner will appear on your av banners, such as most already have with various levels of user levels.

Thanks in advance to those that choose to do so!

If paying by Paypal, there shouldn't be a need for an email too. Click the "Add special instructions to the seller" link before completing the payment and add your user name there.

thanks weather,

thought there was a way to do so there,

if not, they can always just email the site or send a pm (conversation)

The 'conversation' is the new pm here, where you can send a note out to anyone or groups of anyone

It was easy, peasy! Thanks for providing the opportunity to help again. In the "old days", one had to get around early as it used to be a race to get one's donation in before you closed the doors!

Can we get an update whether the donations were sufficient

I'm sure any amount helps but maybe you could let us know the average or recommended donation

You said it, any and all amounts are appreciated, so I don't plan on releasing anything related to members donations with each receiving the same recognition,

Having said that, some has come in and we have covered about 1/3 of the cost of the conversion and new server.

So there is a ways to go

fyi, I have 2 members who sent some in, but I cannot place them

I thank you very much, and if you choose to remain anonymous, got it,
But if you do choose to receive a banner and get on the list,

Please drop me a 'private conversation' and I will get it taken care of,

Thanks again

Please use what ???
Note: I have had an account hacked by pay-not my-pal thieves.
I thought it might be time to help again & would really prefer to not use them.
Benefit, you get 100%, not 93% or so.

Updates to PayPal Donate button and transaction-generated addresses.

Hi

Thank you for using PayPal's Donate button. We’ve recently made enhancements to the related payment flow, making it even faster and easier for donors to support your organization. These enhancements will help in generating increase in completed transactions and can translate into more funds for your cause. You can find more information on Donate Button upgrades http://links.mkt2944.com/ctt?kn=3&m...I2ODM4NzU0S0&b=2&j=MTA2MzIwMDkwMQS2&mt=1&rt=0

As always, you’ll receive each donor’s email address, transaction and reporting data. However, we will no longer share a donor’s postal mailing address unless he or she consents and allows us to provide it to you. We recommend either sending electronic communications to donors, or collecting their postal mailing address separately on your website. Please refer to the PayPal Privacy Policy to review how you may use personal information that you may receive from PayPal donors.

For more information on the Donate Button, click Help & Contact at the bottom of your PayPal account screen.

Thanks,

PayPal

^^^ I had the same problem last year, was on the verge of sending a check when I discovered a work around. Unfortunately I've forgotten what the work around is. If I run into it again here in a couple of months and figure it out again I'll post here.

Guys,

Please understand that I send out a email response to everyone that helps out.
I just had another one rejected and came back as I was trying to thank him.

So if you do not receive a email response, I have tried to respond so you know it was received and to thank those that are pitching in.

You can also pm me as some do when they send something in.

Thanks!

Scorp

OK so I'm a dumb [word that has more meanings than any other and rhymes with duck], I looked all over this thread and cannot for the life of me find an Fn donate button. I'd be happy to help out as I think I've learned .02 cents worth so far.
Someone[and this probably means all of you] smarter than me wanna point the direction to go to find it?

Yep, same, and I must still be asleep because I'm a cheap feck!

And down here is a little icon and clicking on it sends me to a page that says:

'Gold is Money - The Premier Gold and Silver Forum - Error
You do not have permission to view media within this album.'

No address, no joy

I have no idea what you just did Bottom,

Are you trying to view a album? Some have albums set to members only, or not viewable, etc.

Whereas the donate button is working fine across various pages

No, it's the image you posted of the snail-mail address for the site to send donations. I've noticed that none of the images you post out of your album work for me.
I would like the address. Could you email it to me?
