    Re: Added a donation system

    OK, I've completed most of the forum upgrades today, but the donations plug-in is still a little wonky (hey, it still works, if you wanted to try it ).

    Anyway, the reason I'm posting in here is to let you know that for those of you who have made donations, I'd like to recognise you by giving you a few extra bits on your forum accounts.

    This is still in the works and it is not yet fully automated, as I'd like it, but you will get the following extras:


    • Extra space in your private mailbox (currently 60, you'll get 200).
    • The ability to change your user title (eg, from "senior member" to "vegie wierdo", "donator" or whatever you want.)
    • The ability to send private messages to up to 10 people at a time (Current limit is 5).
    • More ability to edit own events in the calendar.
    • Can have more and bigger pictures with the new album features.
    • Stuff I haven't thought of yet.
    • A good warm feeling that you've given something back.

    I intend to get around to manually updating the accounts of anyone who has donated so far. If I have forgotten you, please remind me.

    Cheers,
    Robert.

    The button takes you to the Paypal site. You can just pay from your credit card through Paypal.

    Robert,
    You may wish to resurrect the 'Donations' page so that members can support your upgrades and ongoing costs.

    Re: Wholesale Replica

    I may consider re-adding in the donatation link, but since I've added in the ads to the forum, the money now just covers the costs of a (cheap) host each year and software renewals. Of course it does not cover my time on it, but I'm not doing that for the money. I'll see how it goes and if hosting and forum maintenance are becoming a problem again, I'll look into adding it back.
