    Thumbs up Donations

    You people should be ashamed of yourselves. Here it is the 17th of the month and there is only $28.93 in monthly donations and almost half of that is my donation. This forum is a valuable resource for everyone who uses it and forking over a few bucks a month to help pay for the monthly maintenance and upkeep shouldn't be a hardship on anybody (if it is you've got bigger problems) So come on folks, fork out a few bucks a month to keep the site up, cause if it goes away, everybody loses !

    True. Just donated a small amount - I know it's not much, but every little bit counts...

    Re: Donations

    Pardon if this sounds rude, but aren't donations meant to be a gracious gift of money, and not a shaming scheme? I wouldn't want to be in a guilt trip just because I didn't donate.

    For someone who just joined our community, spend some time here, then make an assumption wheather you might feel a guilt trip or not.

    Re: Donations

    When I have a good month, I contribute.
    When I can just cover making a livingI contribute knowledge or just a laugh.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    I read this clown's past posts and it looks like he got the help he needed, now he thinks I'm rude for bring up donations. He has no idea what it costs to run and maintain a site like this or any other site. he is the RUDE one. What a putz!

    I donate at the first of the month on the hopes it's going to be a good month. It's called karma.

    Never count your chickens until they hatch.
    Not karma, just logic.
    Live long and prosper.

    True, donation should be a gracious gift. However, there's nothing wrong in reminding us the site accepts donations - nobody's pointing a gun at you, you're the one who's going to ponder whether it is worth donating or not.

    As for me, the help I received far outweights the help I've ever given - and, since I had some spare change in Paypal, I donated it.
