Donation update 

Well, blow me down. You donated enough to keep this place alive for another year and a half, at least.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Awesome Simon, buy a couple pizzas on the side. Everyone is grateful you keep doing this even though it’s a lot of effort.

Thanks Simon,

If everybody donates once a year the equivalent of a set of strings, would that keep you out of trouble? And is it managable to get a link to do so, so, it is done automatically, and you do not have to ask in two years the same thing?

And THANK you a lot to keep this up all this time man. I am getting 60 this year. When I was 40, I became member…..pfff where is the time.

Glad to hear. Besides a meeting place for a handful of players and builders, the stories on the foro are a heritage worth protecting 😊

Talking about a donation. I want to ask foro members the following question.

Let's assume the foro has 300 members and all members decided to make a donation to the foro. Half the male members of the foro contributed 20 euro each and two-thirds of the female members contributed 15 euro each. How much was collected overall?

Sorry, only people who donated can ask incongruous hypothetical questions about donations.

This is his subtle way of reminding us that the bro-energy here has driven away our few women members. The disgraceful insinuation that Simon is somehow on a hustle is just there to hook us in. Really, if you read it right, this apparently gratuitous swipe at the person who gives up time and money to keep this place going is in fact a piece of feminist performance art.

Lol. There's no hidden message in it. If you dont want see it here someone can move it to off topic. Other members can answer it.

The answer is: Imhotep is invisible.

RE: Donation update (in reply to Escribano

Simon, have you considered Patreon?

I, and I am sure many other members, would consider signing up for a pound or two per month.

Regular donation may be possible on PayPal actually, I will check.

EDIT: Regular donation is possible on PayPal. I have set up a monthly donation of £1. Happy to increase that if necessary. If for example 30 members donated a £1 per month, would that be enough to keep the Foro afloat?

RE: Donation update (in reply to Escribano

Good to know you're still here! Have you considered asking for a small fee to post classified? Say a fiver for each post or some smaller amount? That would be a source of income and I'm sure contributors would be able to spare something (even one pound) from their sales.

Just a thought.

Thanks for doing this.

Richard
