How is the forum funded?

I must admit I was surprised by the numbers in Guillaume's post above, I was expecting something far higher!  Although, in my mind this simply serves to reinforces a positive view of the honesty and transparency of all involved.

It's also worth noting that Guillaume made no mention of the time, effort, and hassle involved in setting everything up and keeping it running smoothly.  In my experience IT related hassle follows some kind of rule where the problem itself must occure with the most inconvenient possible timing.  So I am sure there is much pain and frustration from time to time.  I have also noticed that whenever some kind of issue does occur, Rufus, Martyn or Guillaume seem to come back with a solution in no time at all.  They are certainly a lot slicker than Virgin Media in this respect!  (Yes, yes, this comes from very recent experience)

Keep up the good work!

Cheers Brian!  Smile

We have now raised a total of £90 (less PayPal fees)! Thanks to all who have donated, much appreciated!

I'm sorry, but it's not working. Paypal (what a misnomer!) says it can't use my card for this payment. I've used this card for paying everything I buy on the web.

I've never used Paypal before, so my card probably isn't registered at their site. Thank for clarifying this.

Tried to donate again on my iPad, and now paypal prompt me to create a new account, even though I'm using a creditcard.

Sorry guys, but I really don't want to create a paypal account for a one time donation.

We could avoid the PayPal fees (personal transfer from bank accounts aren't charged fees), but the donate button is nicely simple so I used it.

PayPal issues. Some old address has become sticky and its not allowing to EDIT REMOVE etc. Can't even change phone number.

Sorting out paypal issues first and revert back!.

Thanks for everything!
