PayPal Donation Link Added (plugin requires Prosilver theme)

Unread postby nekonoko » Sun Sep 20, 2015 4:11 pm

Disabled for now - thanks much everyone!

*******

I've added a PayPal donation option to the page if anyone is so inclined. Over the next few months I'll also be selling/auctioning various vintage SGI systems to help pay for hosting costs. Thanks much for your support.

Edit: Apparently the donate plugin in only visible using the Prosilver theme, so you might need to toggle themes temporarily in order to use it.

Great idea! I just chipped in.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that it took me a minute to find the link. I was looking for the word "PayPal" or the PayPal logo, so I just skipped right past the "Donate" link. :oops: For those who may be similarly clueless, the link is in the navigation menu above the board index.

Yeah, the plugin I found is kind of subtle. Thanks much! :)

Yep, probably not much I can do about that. Subsilver really isn't supported anymore.

Is that to suggest that the site isn't getting enough money to stay afloat?

Right, it has no income whatsoever, and my costs are going up. I figure I'll try this, maybe sell a few things and see what happens. If it's not sustainable I'll see about passing the torch on to someone else.

If it's unsustainable on voluntary donations have you considered membership fees?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who sees great value in the info in these forums, so I'm sure lots of us wouldn't mind paying annual dues so that you can maintain the site. I've made a donation now, and will try to remember to do so again in 6 to 12 months. If this site was subscription based, I'm sure it would remind me to make those payments!

In any case, thanks for the service so far!

Sure, that's definitely a possibility for the future. In addition to the donations I've received so far I'm planning on offering my Crimson and clear-plastic O2 systems up for sale. Hopefully all that will go a long way toward keeping the site going for the next year (my costs are $2611.80 per year for the Megapath circuit). Thanks much!

Yeah, it's the other costs I have to deal with that are going up. The Megapath price really isn't that bad in the scheme of things.

Me too, the wealth of information that would be destroyed would give a historian a heart attack.
