Donations (domain name)

Post by Eldorion on Sat Jun 11, 2011 5:30 pm

Based on previous discussion, people here seem interested in this forum acquiring it's own custom domain name (i.e., instead of us being hosted at hobbitmovie.forumotion.com we would be at, for example, forumshire.com). The exact domain name has yet to be chosen - that is up to you guys - but with your support we can afford the rather small fee that Forumotion charges for this service. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated. Smile

I'll donate £5 (or whatever, is that too much?) when I get home, probably shouldn't get engaged in any financial transactions sitting under a tree using a notoriously unsecure IPAD- well unsecure in the sense people always go on my facebook! Very Happy

£5 is great! Very Happy Fortunately it is not expensive to get a domain name through Forumotion. Smile

Wouldn't a Brittish fiver be worth more than half the cost? $16.00 was it?

I'll send $5.00 (Aus) once I know where (via paypal). $10.00 if we're desperate. $16.00 if all else fails.

Yeah, a fiver is a big chunk of it right there. Smile I'm hoping Forumotion will let me pre-pay for multiple years so I don't have to do this again next summer, but even if not, it's nice to have a reserve on hand. Very Happy

The donation link is in the first post of this thread. A big thanks again to everyone! cheers

Missus is in control of paypal - send soon (when the Missus is up - it's 1.14am here at moment!)

If I can figure out my Pay Pal, I'm good for $5.00 American.

I could only send $10.00 (Aus) for some reason. Spend it wisely Eldo. But, I warn you, if I hear anything about a skiing holiday, I'll come looking for you! Mad

At the moment I've got about 2,21 kroner (Norwegian currency, that's about $0.40 Laughing), but I'll probably be able to sort something out over the next couple of days. I'll let you know Wink

Thanks again everyone - very much! Very Happy We're almost able to pay for the first year right now (and I still have yet to get around to figuring out PayPal for my own contribution). We should be good to go when the domain name voting closes in a few days. cheers

So how do I make a contribution?

I'm sure there are obvious instructions somewhere, but I've missed them.

Just go to https://www.hobbitmovieforum.com/donate and click the link for PayPal or Allopass and hopefully the instructions should be self-evident from there. Smile

On a different note, nice avatar, Paul Very Happy I take it that's the cover of your book?

Ringdrotten-

Thanks! That is indeed the cover of The Wobbit A Parody. Despite my shameless self-promotion, sales are still very slow, but remarkably steady.

That's great Very Happy I really enjoyed the few bits I read back on the old forum, maybe I'll buy myself a full copy too sometime Smile

I'm afraid joining the army is the key, at least it has been for me - carrying backpacks through the woods at night pays surprisingly well Laughing
