Donations have been stuck at 500 dead p's for a while now, come on guys let's rally 'round the flag! 8-)

Col Needham, the founder and CEO of imdb, gave the movie 9 out of 10 and it's got an 8.3 with 17,000 votes so far, so, it's prolly pretty good. Anyone seen it yet?

I suspect that's just the donation counter that's stuck, not the actual donations themselves! Several people have donated since then, and it's still saying $500. I just hope that's not a sign that PayPal is holding our donations hostage and keeping them from Pete.

I just donated now, and I did so the first time around, too. I had intended it to be a semi-annual thing, "paying my dues" for membership here. Apparently I lost track of time. :oops: I'll try to remember again in an actual six months. The info on this site is definitely worth paying for!

Uh yeah, the counter is definitely stuck, if it's a counter at all. Could just be a typed-in number that Pete updates from time to time. But in terms of donating on a revolving schedule, every six months or whatever, that wouldn't have worked because Pete only made the donation link active again a few weeks ago. It had been off since we hit the target the first time... 8-)

I think this is the third time it's been active. I like that it has been off/on, gives me a reminder to donate.

I would be unsurprised that it was manually updated. And of course the content here is very valuable. The other day I noticed the phpBB statistics show the most active day as "Sat Oct 15, 2016 10:08" I was a little surprised it was this year - but it does track all the search bots as users and a small contingent of them always seem to be listed.

Yep, sorry about that - it is a manual update for the counter and I forgot to update it. Unfortunately the donation plugin is very bare bones, I wish it did more automatically.

Thanks much, everyone! I'll close the donations again around the 31st.

As I've been lurking here for a while know I thought I should chip in to help run the site... and found this rather than the Paypal button. Are donations really closed for the time being? Any plan to re-open them, with or without Paypal?

For now it appears we have sufficient funds to maintain this site. If the need arises, Neko will open donations again.

As dexter said, the collection window is closed for now, but thanks very much for the thought! :D

It's literally right here, just make sure prosilver is selected. Either way, donations are closed for the time being - Pete seems to have all he needs to keep the site in order so he's not open for business right now.

It's also worth nothing that Prosilver is the default theme, so unless you've changed your theme, the Donate button will appear the next time Pete needs some donations. He typically only opens it for a few days at a time until he has sufficient funds to keep Nekochan running for a while.
