Is there a donation form on here?

Postby Buddhist Prime » Tue Mar 27, 2012 4:09 am

I know it must take money to run this operation,
and was curious if y'all took donations, if so where?
Do you have any Paypal forms on here?

As I am still knew, if there is a donation area,
please forgive me for asking again, as I do not know.

Don't eat me alive, like the Christian websites do.
I got kicked off one, and accused of aggressive Trolling,
I just asked 2 questions, and I think it was too hard for
them to answer, so instead of answering it, they'd just rather
kick me off. Like they did to the Knight's Templar.

This is a very generous and selfless attitude. But maybe a donation form wouldn't be such a bad idea after all...

I'd be glad to donate 10-20$ a year. And I'm certainly not the only one around. With some donations made it would be possible to hire a programmer and fix the non-functioning mail server. I'd really appreciate it if the mail function would work and I would receive mail notifications when I get PMs and when topics I'm watching get updated. And what about backups? I hope there's a good and functioning backup solution installed? Regular security updates? I don't want to make things overly complicated, but IMHO a budget of 200-500$ a year for forum maintenance shouldn't be a problem and would make things run more smoothly. If e-Sangha would have had a functioning backup solution and regular security updates it would still be running...

P.S. there also seems to be a glitch with the registration function. I first tried to register as "emaho". I received an error message (don't remember, what it was). Tried to register again and received the message that the name "emaho" was already in use. As I later found out there is a member by the name "emaho" who has registered at about the time I made my first attemt and who has never logged in. Looks like the user was created in spite of the error message. I'm not writing this as a complaint, only as a suggestion. This forum still has a couple of glitches that with a little bit of a budget could be easily fixed.

ES used to have a "paying member" tag which was purple and which fed my ego very nicely.
