    Question Where has the donate widget gone ? and is there a way to donate more than $35 pa ?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by big soft moose, Dec 10, 2016.

    As per the title really - I'm sure we used to have a monthly donation target thing , but I can't find it now. I take it this doesn't mean donations are no longer needed because @Daniel or @Wreybies has won the lottery ?

    Also on the second question looking at the subscriber/supporter link it looks like an annual subscription is $35 pa. I'd be happy to give more to support this great site and I wondered if there was a way of doing that.

    Lastly is there a way to donate without having a paypal account ? (the supporter page seems to require one, wheras I thought you could pay into a paypal account by card without needing an account yourself)

    In the past ad revenue was enough to cover some months but not all. This is probably the reason why the fundraiser isn't currently active.

    If, like now, there is no fundraiser to donate to it's possible to make direct donations to WF via PayPal (as outlined here: How Can I Donate?).

    According the Supporter FAQ it looks like it might be possible talk directly to Daniel (via an email to the site) to arrange for non-PayPal donations, but don't quote me on that one. ;)

    (@Wreybies, I've been tagging you a lot recently, but you're the one with the most knowledge about back-end stuff, etc. Do you have anything to add here?)

    Much as I love all my little WF sproglings, were I to have won the lottery my absence would be loud since getting a signal is a pain even on the most expensive of yachts, and my hubby and our selection of boytoys would complain about me being stuck to the screen. ;)

    In truth, it's as @Komposten mentions. Typically when Daniel takes it off and keeps it off it's because the forum's income sources are keeping things in check. As also mentioned, there are always ways to donate to the site other than the widget. (The widget is actually relatively new, in the grand scheme of things).

    Cool - that answers most of my questions , it looks as though i can use the support@ email address to make a paypal payment and you can do that without having an account yourself I think

    Incidentally the link to the donation goals page on the faq is broken (no biggie just saying)

    Where'd you get that pic of me (third from the left) and my bro's from ?

    I hate to break it to you but you aren't getting any specialist knowledge of my back end, lottery or not :D

    The link isn't broken. It just happens that Daniel has taken down the goals page since there are no active fundraisers. ;) (Though maybe a page that says "No fundraisers are currently active" would be better.)
