@bryantq-sama -Thank you so much for giving FMA forums more on-line time last Saturday, and also this coming Saturday!!


And, about the FMA Server Funds (that helps getting better hardwarers for our board)...
I was hoping there might be already some type of account, to which we can add on our contributions (if/when some of members are willing, and able to,) but if not and it have to be set up new, I'm at loss, tho, I'd love to see something set up. So...
HELP!! Someone, please take an initiatiive!! unsure.gif

bryantq: You can maybe create a paypal account for the site? I don’t really know how paypal work, but all the members who are interested and have one would be able to send you money easily.
I have no paypal account but I would like to add a contribution even if it is just a little amount^^… From France, I can send money with International Postal Money Order or Western Union…

If Bryantq set up a paypal account, he could set up a button that could be posted on the site so that members who can spare the money (Or want to donate generally) then enter how much they want to donate. You now dont need a paypal account to send money over paypal, so it would be fine for normal users.
It has a minimal cost for reciving funds so it will be quite usefull for this.

I'll chip in some change for a new server and I'm sure others will too. Who knows, between all of us we just might be able to fund the whole new server for you. biggrin.gif

If you guys want to setup a fund or something, go ahead and do that but I cant directly do that and ask for money wink.gif
Why can't you directly ask?

I did little checking on Paypal, and I like the idea because with the Paypal account there will be a record of each "support" (fund-giving,) I think. smile.gif

But, is it true that to accept credit card payment on Paypal, it has to be a "commercial account", but for commercial Paypal account, a persentage of every incoming funds will go to Paypal as a fee, even non-credit card payments.... and, tho that is not the case with non-commercial account, with non-commercial Paypal account the payment will be accepted by fund transfer or e-chec only, and no credit card payment is accepted... ???

Now, I don't know whether the above is true or not, so if anyone who knows more about Paypal can confirm or correct this info, that will be appreciated!!! happy.gif

Paypal dose take 7% of what is donated, but that would be a very small amout so it wouldnt make such a big difference, I have seen other sites that rely on doing this.
Also you could do what other site have done, *Not mentioning names*
and host fansubs up on the server, then make the acces to the downloads of these a special area for "Subscribers" or "Premium" members or the like.. XD They normally charge anywhere between $5-$10 a month for the download links.
Then you have a continuous supply of money through that.
It would make the money colectings less like taking charity if thats what you are getting concerned about....?
But most people who would donate would take it as saying thanks for al the work you do and keeping the froums up, ^^

^^ Ummm...is there any way to create a clickable button with that address somewhere on the forum page??
Or, if that is not possible, can we have a thread with that link pinned somewhere on the forums??
