PostSubject: Donations for the Forum   Mon Jun 20, 2011 7:40 am

Well, I chose Forumotion, the company/website/tool/what-ever-one-calls-this-kind-of-thing, to make this forum because it showed itself to be a "free" forum creating tool and it has been, until now.

As with most "free" things on the internet, you never really get the whole thing unless you pay. Forumotion is not an exception. As you may or may not know, the storage on this forum is rediculously little. For example, you can only have 50 or so PM's in your indox and the gallery can only hold 10mb of data - it is already full. I am also unable to create web-adds with which to advertise the forum on simmilar sites and forums, nor am I able to legally copyright the material on this forum (obviously the C-thingie can be easily faked, so the latter would be exceedingly helpful).

To improve tha above, I have to buy the features. To do that, the forum needs credits, which is derived from actual money that is sent to the forum via Allopass and/or Paypal. I am not able to pay out of my own for two reasons: I have no money of my own and I don't think Allopass or Paypal even exists in South Africa.

I recently discovered a forum add-on in the admin panel for "donations". This allows users to donate money to the forum, which potentially solves my problem. So, I decided to activate it. Sadly, the link isn't very clear (look for it in the forum footer).

Anyway, with forum credits I'll be able to buy the following from Forumotion:

  • The ability to create web-ads
  • Larger storage
  • A forum copyrighting system
  • Our own internet domain


The above is arranged roughly in the order of need.


Now, donating is completely optional, of course, and the forum can, in theory, go on without credits if you sacrafice the gallery and if I begin deleting all old posts and topics (neither of which are preferable).

However, if you can and want to donate, PLEASE do so. Having forum credits would totally rock. ^^


If you can't find the link to the donation page in the footer, HERE it is. Very Happy

Must you pay a monthly fee for these things, or is it a one time payment? Probably the first, so how much do these things cost? I could possibly donate money, but I have no source of income other than random amounts of money my parents give me, so I wouldn't be able to donate at the same rate for any period of time.

It's a one time thing. I can buy each of the mentioned things piece-piece. (Eg. I can buy 3mb more space today and 15 more in a few weeks, with each purchase only costing one payment).


For some reason they don't show prices...

Okay, I'll try to see if I can donate.

We could also search the internet for ways to get some money. More advertisements on the forum, maybe?

It would be hard to find people who would buy advertising space on a forum that's on the brink of death... if one can even buy advertising space from someone, because, as far as I know, adds for your website/forum aytomatically appears on simmilar sites/forums (that's why forum/website creators add tags to their websites/forums).

Hmmm...

There's this one thing where you can like make a link to something or something like that and when 1000 different people click on it you make a dollar.

Awesome.

Not sure if I can connect the link to the forum credit store, though...



Also, did you check your wall?

Yes, yes I did.

Okay, so with the AdF.ly thing, you set up and account and all that, and you can basically make a url that takes you to the adfly page when you click it, then there is an ad and a "skip ad" button. When you press the button you go to the intended page. You could do this with the wiki, for instance, so that when we click that link at the top of the page it takes us to adfly, you get money and then we continue to the wiki.

The funds get paid to a paypal account, which you can set up online. Then you can take the funds from the paypal account and turn them into upgrades for this site.

Do you know of any way to contact the people who are no longer active here? Because Lichen has left Spore, so I can't contact him, and I don't know anything about where to find the rest of them.
