Donated a little. Thank you John for maintaining this site.
Not because it is easy, but because it is hard...

Hi John,
Firstly I LOVE this community site - I would not have been able to survive in my scope world without it :-)
I applaud you for your efforts.

I would like to make a donation but hate paypal. if you send me your iban, swift and bic details i will gladly make a bank transfer.
(REALLY hate paypal :-))

I would also like to make a suggestion.

I am sure a number of the hardcore planetz users would happily pay a voluntarily yearly subscription of a small amount, perhaps around 10 euros or so, to keep the site up and running.....
Maybe organise a yearly get together in each region if a small profit is made :-)

Another thought i had is i actually ran a small company a few years ago, providing cloud server space for on line gaming communities, and found this to be reasonably cheap. I basically rented a box from a company and then subleased parts of it out to gamers who hosted multiplater tournaments.

If you would like I could make a few suggestions as to companies which offer on line hosting with as much bandwidth as you may require and for not much money. Sadly I no longer do this myself or else i would make you a great offer, in the spirit of planetz sharing :-)

I would however be happy to contribute effort in finding a good solution for you.

Best of luck, and let my know if an iban donation possible.

Thanks for the kind offer and suggestions.
I don't love Paypal either, but it seems to be the easiest way to send money... My bank charges exorbitant fees for wire transfers :(
I've never felt comfortable with the idea of a subscription model. I hate the google adsense ads- maybe I'll disable those.
I just want to be able to cover hosting expenses, and currently, via the few donations I receive here, I am doing fine with that, so I don't feel a need to change it at this point.
Cheers,
-John

Thanks for the support over the years!
For now, we've removed all the donation buttons associated with me.
Maybe we should unsticky this topic and Matt can start a new topic if/when he sets up a new donation system for scopeusers.com?
