    No one is expecting anything in return. It's a donation of goodwill.

    I love how the second page is just Vyse and Arrek :P

    I'm sure if the site was going to shut down because of the lack of funds that people would help out with donations. But if admin has ran the site for this long without it, surely hes doing alright?

    That's because we're cool.

    Not saying it needs it or anything, was just an idea considering the topic of the thread.

    I'll gladly sell my bottom to keep gf afloat.

    Hopefully it doesn't come to that and does it really need donations to be fair, i think if admin was struggling then yes by all means but it can make members who dont want to or are not here enough to make a donation feel bad, especially if like on some forums the donater's are given coloured names.

    If admin is ever in trouble then yeah we can certainly ask that then but does it really need it atm?

    Im on a few sites that have donation buttons whaich are linked to paypal. Easy to set up and is usually built right into whatever hosting package is being used.

    The purpose of a donate button shouldnt be recognition as that isnt the nature of giving or the definition of donate.

    There are yearly fees involved in running any forum with server/hosting packages and updates. You usually get a better deal if able to purchase a multi year package versus a year at a time.

    In the years that i have been around i have never seen this site go down. It is very well run and kept updated and runs very smoothly at all times. The crew behind the scenes needs props for a job well done. There are 2 kinds of forums on the webs those that are out to make money from sponsors and adverts and those that just want to give peeps a cool place to hangout and discuss like minded topics. Ive always had the feeling this place is the latter.

    I wouldnt be offended at all if Admin came in and said hey we need some funds to keep the doors open would anyone be opposed to a donate button. Donate as much or as little as you can. But those funds shouldnt be used for profit but only to meet the needs to keep the site up.
