US$360 Hosting due end of September - can you help?!

Postby Moogie » Fri Aug 13 2010 8:13am


News from: http://www.shiningforcecentral.com <br /><HR SIZE="1">SFC News: US$360 Hosting due end of September - can you help?!<HR SIZE="1"><br />Hi all and welcome to SFC's Annual Beg!<br />
<br />
As you all know I'm still working on the new CMS for the site, along with the new design & new RPG/shop system. I've been dead busy with work all year and haven't done much for the last few months, but plan to have more time for it again towards then end of the year when things get quiet at work again. I've been so busy that this is my first day off in almost 3 months. So I thought I'd best make the most of actually having some time, and put up the beg ;) I may spend some of today working on the rebuild, or I might treat myself to some gaming time, and pick up where I left off on STHA!<br />
<br />
Since moving to the new server last September, SFC has taken on the <a HREF="http://sf3trans.shiningforcecentral.com">SFIII Translation Project</a> website, as well as having another new hostee planned (sorry I haven't had the time to set that up for you yet dude!!) with a fab Shining site. We're also now hosting <a HREF="http://souk.shiningforcecentral.com">Shining Only: UK</a>, where plans for UK Shining fan meets are arranged. I'm so glad to be able to offer hosting to Shining sites who need it, and of course I don't charge anything for it. The SFC server has been almost entirely fan funded for some years now, so I'm trying to give back where I can :)<br />
<br />
Anyhoo, long story short, the next year of hosting fees is due at the end of September. So, if you've got a few spare dollars kicking around in PayPal, every little helps!<br />

I feel sorry for poor pike-less Moogie :p
So here's $20 to kick things off!

Need to wait for money to work its way to Paypal (also got to do my site's fees by the middle of September), but I should be able to contribute something for the SOUK "hosting fee" in time. ;)

Speaking of SOUK, did you get my message from a couple of weeks ago?

This site's worth my monetary support. I've sent $40 your way.

Thanks guys, much appreciated :)

Rose: I've heard of Western Union and can look into it. Otherwise, do you have any friends who have PayPal who could do it for you? Thanks my dear :)

Actually, thinking about it - you can send money through paypal without having a paypal account these days!

If you go to the donate link, on the lefthand side at the bottom you'll see:
"Don't have a PayPal account?
Use your credit or debit card to pay."
and a "continue" button. That ought to do it! :)

Money sent - I thought if one checked "personal gift"
via Paypal that there were no fees -or at lease minimal fees?
thanks,

Thanks very much indeed, I've received the funds :) I didn't realise that there was a way to reduce the fees, but you're absolutely right - I didn't get charged for receving the money. That's fantastic!

We have now hit a total of US$270, just $90 away from the target :) Thanks so much to all who have contributed so far!
