Call for donations
« on: October 03 2018, 21:04 »
We've arrived in our winter berth and it's been raining all day, so time for some forum work.

Since I've taken over hosting these forums last year, I've been paying the (quite moderate) expenses out of my pocket, as that was simplest and fastest. Now that things have settled down, it's time to ask for some small donations to help with these expenses.

Apart from my own time, which I'm happy to volunteer, the costs for hosting this site are just under €100 a year. If we end up getting a bit more, it'll be put aside for the future, except I would like to upgrade the server to one with a HTTPS endpoint, so we can have end-to-end encryption between your browser and the forum, as is prudent for websites these days. That'll put us around €150 a year.

So if you've found these forums useful and have a few quid to spare, please use the following link to make a Paypal donation.

Donation Link: (please make reference to to earmark your donation, oh, and preferably use either EUR or GBP).

Thank you :)
