Hey all,

Hopefully you are enjoying the speedy PPMB 3.0 (much nicer than PPMB 2.5, isn't it?).

While maintaining the Site5 account isn't a huge expense, it is a bigger expense than maintaining the PPMB on Gamer's site. It's worth it, as you can see. However, between this and the domain names, I'm spending at least $100 a year. Again, it's not a huge expense, but at this particular point in my life, it's not painless either.

Therefore, I would be be grateful to anyone willing to make one or more small donations to help maintain the site. A few things:

1. They should be small donations. No more than $10 every three months maximum. If someone tries to donate more than that -- say $50 at one time, or $10 every week -- I will be grateful, but just as quickly refund the donation.

2. The donations would be your way of helping the community and of saying thanks for the board. They would not be:

* a way to purchase the board (I can assure you that would not pass muster legally)
* a way to avoid the rules
* a way to change the rules
* a way to gain any other sort of power or favoritism

I don't assume anyone would donate for any of the above reasons, but I just had to put that out there.

If you want to donate, please send your donations to kara.wild@gmail.com through PayPal. It's not a requirement for use of the PPMB, but it would be nice a way of saying thanks. :D

With the holiday season nearly upon us, I thought I would rattle my tin...

In the past 12 months, PPMB has received just one donation for $10, and that was back in June. While not out of this world, costs for the board continue to climb. I just paid $20 for the paperpusher.net URL.

Donations are purely voluntary, but are much appreciated. So if you have any spare pocket change you feel like sharing, PPMB thanks you. :)

I'm dead broke right now, but I'm happy to donate to keep the board as it has always been - mad, fun and ours. Please pm me with the relevant paypal details and let me know how much you need. I don't have much and I was saving for something, but these past weeks without PPMB have driven me nuts.

I was just thinking about this the other day: Is there some way to pay a couple of bucks a month as a subscription? :)

A PPMB Patreon page?

Never considered that. Isn't Patreon for creatives, though?

FYI, if you want to do a couple dollars a month subscription, I won't stop you. :) Paypal info is still the same.

Many thanks! :D

Putting the paypal info where it can be accessed by new donators would be welcome. A link would suffice. :)

Any PayPal donation can be directed to my email: kara.wild@gmail.com. You would go under "pay for goods and services":

https://www.paypal.com/myaccount/transfer/buy

Many thanks. :D

It would be easier if I could make a recurring payment, say, two dollars a month or something like that. Just a suggestion. :)
