Donations to BayernForum.com

Postby MUTU » Fri Sep 26, 2008 2:40 pm

Continuing off from the topic originally started by tracylynn, I've set up a PayPal donations account at last!

If you would like to donate to the site, it would be much appreciated. Some money is spent on hosting and purchase of domains etc and your donation will help keep the costs low. All I can think of offering in return, though, is that whoever sends a donation would have his or her rank title (the title that shows up under your nickname when you are viewing a thread, e.g. "Getting the hang of it") changed to "BayernForum.com donator" or "BayernForum.com supporter".

Later on, I will put the Google ads up, and whoever has donated will not get to see the ads.

Any other suggestions for things I can give to donators are most welcome as long as they are realistic.

I have put the donation a low 10 euros.

I have not received any donations yet. Now I have put up the Google ads. Whoever sends in a donation will have the ads hidden.

May I cheat and declare that whoever donates money will have their votes for the moderator poll doubled? :)

Just joking, but as a reminder: I haven't received a single donation yet. I know it may be hard on some of you, but BayernForum.com, as prosperous as it looks, keeps making consistent financial loss (since there is next to zero income). The more members and posts, the costlier it ends up. It is not my intention to make the site profitable, but it would be really great if some of you could help out a bit.

They do give money on clicks, but clicking just to generate money is considered click fraud.

They have means and I don't want to encourage it. If you want to donate something, it should be from the PayPal donate icon above.

Hi Mutu,

What are the costs associated with running this forum?
Is it paying someone to host this site? If so, could you just run it off your machine?
DNS name? What is it, $5 or $10 per year?

Thanks.
ubiytza
Woah, this feels cool!
