Give 'em yer money!

Recommended Posts

After an exhausting few days, Craig must be lying in a darkened room with a wet handkerchief over his face, for some well desreved rest.

Wanting to show my support and appreciation of Sideways and it's stalwart team,  I looked at the top thread on this forum, about "Putting yer money where yer mouh is" but that's from 2012!    If that's on your to do list, Craig, please tell us how and where? 

In 2012, £10 a year was the suggested support.  The Bank of England inflation calculator tells me that that was £11 in 2016, and the fall in the Pound's value since the Brexit vote wil have taken that to £12.   Can we all agree to give that to Sideways, if we can afford it?   I will, gladly.

I've had a swing at the donate button - it's a ridiculously complex bit of code, with no documentation  I'm not certain it will be smooth sailing, but I promise to acknowledge all donations (assuming it works!  It works!  I tested it out and became the first "Subscriber".  Which kicked me out as an Admin, and gave me another hours work trying to log in a Cinders, my long dead dog and spare admin everywhere, who's password I updated 4 years ago.  To something....).

I've left the default amount at $25 USD, which is what it was before.  Feel free to give more if you've just won lotto, but less than that and it mostly gets sucked up in transaction fees.  Everything we pay for (software, hosting, add on apps) are paid for in U$D, so it costs less to just get it as that.  I may have to set up a merchant account if this first swing doesn't work - I'm trying to avoid that as more just goes in fees.

Cheers, thanks to anyone who helps out,

C.

Likewise, the info I got from this site during my EFI conversion was invaluable, so donation worth every penny (or cent)....

Keep up the good work.

Thanks

I can see a 'Donations' tab at the top of the page, but clicking it doesn't lead anywhere, and after a few seconds it reverts to 'Browse'. Is there a separate 'Donate' button I'm staring at and not seeing?

Donate tab works for me.  You should get a Donation Goals  box on the right hand side with a "Donate Now" button.

If you can't see any of that then you need an expert...... :ermm:
