2019 WNFF Fundraiser
« Topic Start: January 01, 2019, 08:40:31 AM »

The time has once again come for all y'all bandwidth hogs and hogettes to chip in.  Given the terrific response we had last year, I'm hoping that we can "sell-out" even faster in 2019.

I'm quoting the pertinent information from previous years.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to PM The Chief :)

Quote from: The Chief on January 06, 2014, 12:33:33 PM

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: http://www.wnff.net/index.php?topic=25283.0).  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.


Total cost for 2018 was $925.80

The Chief will let us know if the 2019 cost is different.

UPDATE 1/3/19

Total cost estimate for 2019 is: $930.17

75.90 USD / month for the hosting service
20.17 USD / year for the domain name service

HOW TO DONATE

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"



Thanks...

Total cost (anticipated) for 2019 is 930.97 USD

75.90 USD / month for the hosting service
20.17 USD / year for the domain name service

The slight total increase over 2018 is due to the increased cost of domain name services.  Hosting service cost has (somewhat surprisingly) not changed.

And this is a slow time for the board. Wait until Harper re-signs. :couch:

I recommend Harper's contract be amended to 10 years, $299,999,364.03 and let him pick up the difference.

While you're at it...have him kick in another $8,370.00 so he can cover years 2-10 as well...  ;)
