@AMSDOS : The image at the top that doesn't load is supposed to be the logo of the wiki - let me fix it real quick... Ok, done. The padlock doesn't appear because the Paypal page contains this logo, which is an insecure element (an image from a third-party server, the wiki server). So it's correct, though I wonder if some could think it's a security issue and if it could be rectified... Anyone?

I did get your AUSD2 donation, though the email was different from every other email notification I've received :D And yes, it's withheld AUSD0,40 from the total, so @Manu is correct!


That's amazing, so either way their gonna get a bit of your money.


I worked out how much extra I'd have to add, just to give the intended amount, bunch of vultures, but I guess it's better to work out what their taking out, than living in ignorance, I only knew it was 40 cents cause that's what it going to take out if I sent to Friends or Family.

Well, I hate to give Paypal any money, but in the end it's not a large amount anyhow, so no need to worry about it :)

Thanks for your support, and for your comments!

Done.


Maybe you can display a funding animation type thing in the page header so people can see the current situation and decide to chip in as and when they see the pot going too low?  Not necessarily something in your face but something people can see and decide for themselves.

Oh no Gryzor. I think it should be the other way round. We, the users, should be thanking YOU, for giving us a place to discuss all things CPC. And as you are doing all the heavy lifting, keeping the site going, it's only fair that our wallets take the financial load. There are over 3000 of us, and if it's still €600 per year to keep going, then a €1 donation from each of us would be good for 5 years! :D

I was actually thinking of something of the sort the other day, but it basically involved how to get the donations module to display this correctly; I had started feeding it information several years back, it would seem, but never updated it. I don't know if I want to put an animation - that's already less discreet than I'd like, but perhaps an announcement box could do the trick silently...

Eh, to be perfectly honest that's not how I see it - I maintain the project because people actually bring it to life and because other people who have the talent contribute much nicer things to the community. So, yes, I do appreciate the donations immensely, but I don't see it like I have a right to donations or something. But, thank you for your kind words indeed...

I saw this on another forum, maybe not as blatant as it was on there but something like this may be appropriate

Perhaps someone could do a "loading screen" that will slowly fill up? :)
