Hi guys

If anyone is reading this thread asking 'do I need to donate' - the answer is NO! This thread was created in 2007 when we raised most of our funds through donations. Now we have a subscriptions page in place so please check that out instead. Obviously if you're very kind and would still like to donate then please feel free - you can do so [url="http://basschat.co.uk/cp/9-support-basschat/"]here[/url] - we also accept Greggs sausage rolls, PM for postal address and please ensure the contents arrive warm.

Many thanks to you all who have donated, past and present.

How much does BC cost to run p/m, How much do you get in donations on average p/m? What happens to surplus monies or are there none?

Sorry if that's a rude question, but I would donate if needs be, but not if not - i'm quite broke, but I love BC.

Hi Tom,

Per month I think it was about £35 and we are changing to a new server or our own server or something (no idea really) soon which will cost a bit to set up. The last batch of surplus went into paying for the Bash and as a result a fair bit went to charity (indirectly I guess) and the current thing is to get enough together to buy some merch to pimp at various bashes and hopefully online.

Cheers

In view of the recent spamming will there be any cash outlay needed to strengthen/update the forum software against spammers / spambots?

If we need to pass a hat around, then I'll chip in.

Should be working fine - I received two extremely kind donations today and have sent notes of thanks. Really appreciated especially at this time of year and what with Woolies closing down etc...

When I enter the amount of the donation on the Paypal page and enter the login details/password I get an error message saying I need to enter an amount (which I've already done). Did this four or five time and gave up?

Very strange - I know Paypal can be a pain at the best of times... Can anyone suggest what is wrong (I have no idea!)

Cheers

Tried to make a donation (another member suggested this instead of sending him an overpayment for postage, what a good thought), but I can't enter an amount. Sorry to say I only try ANY online payment a couple of times and then give up.
