Quoting the pertinent information from previous years.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to PM the Chief :)  (updated 2/5/18)

Some of you may recall that I held a fund drive a couple of years ago to help pay for WNFF's expenses for the year (the original thread is here:  It was a great success and the show of support from everyone was very much appreciated.  Furthermore, I have decided to link the forum's billing to a PayPal account, and will be accepting donations year-round going forward.  All donations will be left in PayPal and automatically applied to WNFF's monthly invoice.

You are free to donate as little or as much as you'd like.  This is and always will be a free site, and contributing is completely voluntary. All donations will be used to pay for hosting costs, domain renewal, and any other fees that apply directly to running the site.  I greatly appreciate donations of any amount.  You are not required to donate, so only give what you are willing and able to provide.

Below is a brief explanation of costs:

-Hosting: $69/mo
-Domain renewal: $15/yr
Total: $843/yr

Total cost for 2018 will be $925.80


Under your forum profile settings, you'll see an "Actions" subsection with a "Paid Subscriptions" option, as shown below.  Simply choose a payment option from the drop-down list and click "order", then "order with PayPal", at which point you'll be taken to PayPal to enter your information and payment method (a PayPal account is NOT required, but they'll try to talk you into signing up for one if you use the "guest" option.  Feel free to ignore them).

You can make multiple donations if none of the dollar amounts in the list fit the exact amount you wanted to donate.

The day/week/month/year and subscription length don't mean anything, so just ignore them.  These are one-time payments ONLY.  Once you've completed the payment process at PayPal, your "subscription" will show as "active"
