Hi all
I have been asked many times over the years if I'm taking donations for the upkeep of this website. I've said often that I'll get something together and never have until now :)

So, I've set up a donation button (see link below) that will send donations to my Paypal account. From there, they go straight to the hosting company and I'll make up any difference for monthly hosting costs.

I'm happy to answer any questions of course. Note that I don't care whether you decide to donate or not and if you decide to donate I don't care how much. I will never reveal names of donors to anyone.

It seems to work :)

BTW, is the currency in USD on purpose? Just wondered if we both get to pay currency conversion if it goes from EUR -> USD -> AUD..

andrew
10-07-2013, 09:42 PM
The server fees are in USD which is why I picked that currency. If you're paying in anything other than USD you'll get Paypal's currency conversion which is pretty much the same as any bank - at least last time I checked :)

Really? When I checked ages ago they tried to rob me with the exchange rates. They mentioned something about increased risk due to fluctuations and increased fraud risk or other BS. I get the cheapest rates by allowing my credit card company to convert the rates so I always take the one that is used for the charge.

My first question is:

Andrew, do you take any of these donated funds for yourself? I know you put in a lot of time for this Forum and I do think your time is worth some monetary compensation. But of course that depends on how much is donated.

And also, how much does it cost to host this site each month?

Wegetarian
10-07-2013, 11:23 PM
Based on what I've seen from other forums that accepted donations they never were enough to cover basic hosting expenses, so unfortunately I wouldn't be too worried about any money being left over after the hosting costs.. I do hope Andrew wouldn't need to pay out of pocket for giving us this great site.

Hi mate
Nope - any funds donated go straight to paying fees for server hosting, VBSEO and VBulletin licensing fees. I don't charge for my time :)

The server costs $99USD per month.

So, if you get more than $99 for the month, where does the rest go.
Does it just sit in the account to then pay the next months etc etc. I don't want to see it get lost in the system

I would gladly contribute one months payment each year.
I can't believe that you have been doing it for so long. :hug1:

Hi Michelle
Thanks! :)

Yep funds stay in the Paypal account and are used to pay hosting fees. I'm going to publish credits and debits each month so everyone can see what's happening.

For the peace of mind and joy that this site has given me, I couldn't possibly NOT donate something. So, I sent mine in, just now. It's 1:38AM California time, I'm still at work later than I have been since this all began ........ and sending that put a smile on my very sad face.
Thank you for all that you created.

I get to leave here in about 30 minutes. I have a 10 minute drive home. Hubby gets up for work at 4:00am so I will just sort of doze on the couch and then ... THEN ... I'll be tucked away in bed. I seriously can't wait, I feel horrible.

Yeah being at work that late won't do you much good physically or mentally. You have something to look forward to though - a nice comfortable bed :)

Andrew, I think that first of all you should cover the money you were paying by yourself over the years. it is not a small amount. and we didn't even start to think about all the work you invested here.... which is very precious in all meannings. :wub:

Well everyone I feel overwhelmed by the donations. I am very grateful for the $754 donated in a couple of days. Thanks to you there are almost eight months of hosting fees. Thank you! Your donations will help everyone here and future members as well.

Wegetarian
10-09-2013, 06:36 PM
Wow! That's amazing! Really great to see so many help out. Great that Andrew doesn't need to pay the fees out of his own pocket.

Big hugs to everyone :hug1:

This is a stupid question but I never paid anything thru PayPal. When I donate the country listed is Austraia..do I change it to United States and keep it that way since the money is going there ???? DAHHHHHHHHHH

I haven't been there yet, and have paid things with PayPal before, but haven't run into anything that was outside of the US. I guess when I get there this brunette will figure it out, too.

Anne , you have to change the country to United States,but I wasn't sure since it was going to Austraia.

You can donate in currency of any country they accept but you may not know what another country currency is worth in your money. For example a dollar is not worth the same in Canada, Australia or United States.

I just thought, after the thread about the name of our forum, and being grateful to you, andrew, for all what you do for us :love: that it is time to refresh this thread.
it's about a year since last time that we were taking care of it. I just sent mine. please check if you get it.
for newcomers, for years, andrew was paying from his own pocket (I hope you say so in English too) for the management of the site. untill wedgie (if my memory is correct) asked about it, and then we found it.
so if anyone can and want, only as much as one can.....

vdub
06-25-2014, 05:50 PM
Good call! Donations are definitely appreciated. I give each year around his birthday, but giving at anytime is welcome. It costs an amazing amount to run a forum like this and I'm sure we are all thankful to have it.

Andrew hate to break it to you, but you are a saint :) I really think that once you get enough in the bank to pay the next few years or so that the extra should go to what you have paid in the past. Once we get you all caught up then maybe as a group we could do something, but yeah we need to make you whole as far as what you have paid out. Your managing this site has done so much good for so many. Think of it as our gift to you.

An annual donation has just been made. I know it's not actually a birthday present for you personally, but I hope it takes the edge off your own payment contributions.

Have a fantastic day

Thank you, Phil. What would I do with out you! :0)

What would I do without my sweet Phil ???
This was such a lovely thread..
anyway I came to this thread because I wanted to donate to the forum in kind of tribute to my Phil, on his birthday (that was yestetday) .. BUT it seems that its not working if I try to donate with my card (I dont have pay pal account). I remember that it worked fast last time but now when I write all the details and press the continue it is stuck. Can you, please, check it, andrew ?
I tried 4 times and couldnt. I will try again after posting this and if it works I will write another post.

Thinking of Phil, Alysia, Andrew and everyone else here I tried to make a small contribution and got an error screen too. It said my payment was a success but then I was redirected to a web page for
"Scorched Earth Records". Unless Andrew has become a record producer I think there might be a problem. I hope my payment did not go to them . Here is the web page I was directed to.

OK, an update on my update. I did receive an email from Paypal saying the payment went to Andrew- so, I'm thinking everything looks ok. Although, it IS weird to end up at the Scorched Earth Heavy Metal
page. Just out of curiouosity what kind of music DOES the big Kahuna like? Also, we have a chain of restaurants here called "Outback Steakhouse" - do you think they are any good? Michelle you can answer this one if so inclined.

Michelle you can answer this one if so inclined. I've gotten the drift that that's the kind of music the Big Kahuna likes, but of course, he can speak for himself. As for the Outback Steakhouse, I ate at the one on Capital Mall Drive in Olympia once, and I haven't a clue whether it resembles Aussie food in any way, but I thought it was good. I think I had a nice piece of salmon and my friend may have had a steak, maybe with lobster, I don't remember. My impression was that they did a good job cooking everything just right, but it seemed pretty American to me. They may have had Aussie beers. It's been a long time, so probably Googling would be the best way to see what they are about.

me2
07-09-2015, 04:27 PM
Thanks Anne. I agree that the 'Googles' is usually the best way to find stuff out but since I can GET to the place you are talking about I think I will just try it. I haven't had steak or lobster in many many years.

Well, if Andrew likes that kind of music maybe he would like my 'new' discovery. Jimmy Page went to New York to see these guys-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLTPYilXcMA

Hi Me2
Sorry about that. Didn't realise that the landing page for payments would also be for donations. Yes, actually I have become a record producer among other things :smile1: That's one of my websites.

As for the errors, Paypal is stupid sometimes :) I get those sometimes too when I'm paying using a credit card without logging in to Paypal.

Thank you so much to both of you for the awesome donations!!! :smile1: :smile1: :smile1: :smile1: :smile1:

Hi Andrew,
One quick question - when I tried to make a donation I got a system error because I didn't insert a territory (which is obviously for Australia). Addresses in Canada have the city, province and postal code. Any advice?

Thanks
Erin

Thanks!

Well, Andrew, it is just about your birthday again and my annual donation to your wonderful forum. First, Happy Birthday! I'm not sure why we celebrate getting a year older. It seems my youth was a lot more fun, but I guess its traditional, so "na zdravi, santé, prost, salute, and cheers"! Oh yes, "here's mud in your eye, buddy"! May many more healthy and prosperous years come your way!


This is also the time of year I make my annual donation to the forum. I tried clicking to go to a paypal account and it failed me. Can you please let me know how to donate money to your paypal account, so we can keep this forum going. Thanks in advance, VW

Happy birthday again Andrew.

Has your paypal account been hacked - mine has but fortunately I don't have any funds in mine.

The annual birthday present, to ease your bank balance, will just have too wait until we can get in, or until I see you next (whichever comes first)

andrew
10-22-2017, 06:48 PM

Gaaaaaa. Paypal is like Pred. A necessary evil :)

I'll see what I can do about that in the next couple days. Got free tickets to Alice Cooper tonight. *Sigh* The things I have to do....

Thanks again!

The new one seems to be working just fine, Andrew! Happy Birthday!

(But I have an account, so I can't address the problem Mish had.)

Thanks mate!

Sorry mate......lol

Our annual thank you gift, from dr. Phil and from me, on my sweet Phil's birthday, July 7 (starting already in Oz).

Thank you andrew for creating the forum and keeping it going. My gratitude to you is forever.

Btw, this year your paypal looked different. It worked faster, No Hebrew option and it was fixed on australian dollars. Only after the conversion to Israeli currency I realized that AUD is different from american dollar. I think it was american dollar in the years before. Please make sure that you got it.

Thank you so much Alysia !

Yes received with thanks from you and Phil :thumbup:

I think Paypal made some changes as well as me changing the default currency I think :)

Hi Andrew, I have sent Merry Christmas wishes your way via PayPal. Your knowledge, work, time and investment in this site is greatly appreciated. If I had to call my doctor to get all of the information I get on this site, I would consume all of his time. Prayers and best wishes for you and yours to have a wonderful holiday.

Thank you so much, andrew for keeping the forum going and doing such a great work, mostly on your own, with efforts and lots of expanses. Much appreciated.
We love you and pray for you always :love:

I'm over due AND it's a good occassion to remember the Big Kahuna and my other WG friends. I had a recent bit of good fortune so I'm sharing a bit more than usual. All hail Big Kahuna
Seriously, thank you so much Andrew for making this place possible.

I'm on the road traveling, but didn't forget. I haven't been very active, but that means I'm having a good time. Happy birthday, mate, and cheers. Now I have to figure out if I can do PayPal from my phone. Aarrgh... 🤪
