Quote from: Gryzor on 20:44, 23 January 12Huh, that much? Could you share some stats with me?
Quote from: Gryzor on 17:54, 22 January 12Hello guys,Well, yeah, believe me when I say that I generally hate it when site owners whine about money, so I hope that this announcement doesn't cause any negative feelings.The fact is, I simply cannot afford the server on my own. The wiki has grown larger than anything we ever thought it would be, and ever since we lost our last donated host (I won't be repeating the details...) we needed to finally find a robust enough host/server and learn to stand on our own feet.What this means is this: it costs me almost €600/yr now (already paid for the first year), and this is quite heavy for me to bear alone. I don't mind putting long hours into it and thus making what little contribution I can to the community, but this is more than I can pay myself.I have installed a donations system, to be found either here or through the button just before the Logout option at the top bar menu[nb]Default theme only for now [/nb]. I have set a yearly goal of €500, but anything that anyone can contribute, no matter how little, is much, much appreciated.So, thanks for listening, and thank in advance to anyone and everyone who considers donating to the Wiki community.ThemisPS On last thing - if someone could use the system to do a test donation (which will be refunded - even for €1) it'd be really helpful in testing the system... Thanks again.
Quote from: AMSDOS on 00:17, 22 December 14I'm having Difficulty with PayPal with regard to Donating Funds as a Gift. Seems like no matter what I do, the Money is going to have Fees attached to it Has anyone else been able to Donate and Mark it as a Gift, or has PayPal changed the Rules so that you cannot Donate as a Gift or is there some kind of limit as to how much you can Donate as a Gift?
Quote from: Gryzor on 10:16, 22 December 14@AMSDOS , never heard of this issue before, so I'm going to look into it. However, you can just send the donation to me (krakout g mail) and I'll add it manually to the donations registry, if you prefer...TPS Ok, I just went to do a test trasnfer and it doesn't add any fees. Weird...? Anyone else seen this? Are you sure you're following the procedure from the Donations page?
Quote from: Manu on 10:20, 22 December 14In order to send as gift with no fees, you have to associate a bank account (besides the credit card) or have some funds saved in the Paypal account.
Quote from: AMSDOS on 10:34, 22 December 14Huh, I just stated I was paying for Goods & Services and there was no fees. I haven't got my Bank Account Details on there though.
Quote from: Manu on 10:38, 22 December 14When you are paying for good & services, the one who receives the money pays the fees to Paypal. When you send money as gift and you have money or a bank account, neither pays fees
Quote from: AMSDOS on 10:44, 22 December 14Which I presume would be deducted from the PayPal amount as sent. I've only sent a mere sum of $2 Dollars as a Trial. I'll send More when this other account has sorted itself out (in a day or so).
