Post by: Des on April 21, 2012, 02:02:57 PM
This is a non profit making forum so all donations will go towards building and maintaining the forum, the donations also help to cover the daily running cost of the site. I appreciate the support of the members through their donations, without them the forum would not exist.

Anyone wishing to donate can do so through the Donate button.

Those two [html] tags appeared when I installed the donate button, the button had to be inserted between the two tags, but they remained there after the button was installed. I have tried to delete them but nothing happens, so I have contacted Simple Machines and I am  awaiting a reply. Thank you for your comments.

No problem. Considering I spend $10-$18 on a magazine, $25 on a paperback book...and maybe a bit more on kits, this site is priceless. If there is a question or piece of information needed it is given here generously. That combined with the friendly atmosphere is all I could ask for.

So I will commit to a donation when I do the introduction and will donate again each time I use your site for the referances that I will use here. This is truely a great site with outstanding builds and a ton of referances.

Last year (2014) was a bumper year for the forum, we reached several milestones with the most important one reaching the 2000 member count. The forum has become THE place to be for anything WW1 aviation modeling related and as a community we are one of the most friendly and helpful on the net.

To keep it all going and to grow even stronger donations are needed to pay for the host fees, domain fees, ongoing daily fees to maintain the forum. All donation no matter how big or small go directly into the forum and website, no monies are used for personal use.

I want to thank all the members who kindly donated money last year and I hope that donations will continue throughout this year as well.

This forum relies heavily on shop fees and members donations to keep afloat, ongoing host fees plus domain fees and registration costs all take a toll on finances, any changes that need to be made to the forum many of which members don't see all cost a substantial amount. I am extremely gratefull to all those members who have donated to the forum as it is their generosity that keeps the forum alive, please keep the donations coming.

Hello Des

Just sent a little something which I hope will help in some way.

I haven't been involved much since the SE5 having been hopelessly sidetracked but I do pop in from time to time. I purposefully have not followed any threads so my apologies to fellow members for that but it's a bit like a kid in a sweet shop with no money in his pocket. I have been adding to the stash (Taube on order) and do intend to come back to WWI soon.

Currently I'm sidetracked on an elephant - no not the Martynside but a 'white one'. I  bought a Trumpeter 1/35 aircraft carrier so many years ago. My wife has always referred to it as my 'white elephant' and a chance remark from a club colleague saw it on the bench - you know the rest.

Rest assured 'I will be back' , in the meantime I hope this small contribution will help in keeping such a fine Forum ticking over.

My best regards - Tug

My many thanks to the latest member to donate to the forum, his very kind and generous donation helps to cover the costs of setting the Website and Forum as safe sites, the SSL Certificates don't come cheap. You will all notice that the Website and Forum now have a safe green padlock, I have done this to protect all the forum members.

I have received another two very kind donations from our members, I am so grateful for these donations as they not only go towards building and maintaining the forum but they also help to pay the daily running costs of the site.

Again I express my sincere gratitude to the three most recent donations to the forum, 100% of all the money donated is used to keep the forum running at its peak and also it helps to cover the daily running costs of the site, all donations are much appreciated.

This is a friendly reminder to everyone that our Forum depends on member donations to cover the costs of maintaining what we hope is the best WW1 modelling forum on the Internet.

There have been no donations recorded since mid April and as I'm sure everyone appreciates, donations are vital to the running of the Forum. Changes made late last year removed all shop and advertising fees so we are wholly reliant now on member support.

If you can assist, it would be greatly appreciated. The Donate button can be found on the Home Page.

My pleasure, Dave.

I hope many of our newer or lurker members consider making a small donation. 

I can't imagine a World without this forum being in it... So come on my friends, throw a few coins in the tip jar and let's keep this wagon rolling...for you, for me and for the many new members who join in the future.

Bob

P.S. To those of you who have made many donations - I salute you!  ;)

I have made a VERY small donation as my finances allowed. I will leave the Snipe up in the Buy and Sell Segment for another week. If it sells I will donate a good portion to the Forum.

I think the paypal button would appear to be linked to the old "Des" account.
Do I now use "davidwilsonww1models@gmail.com" ?
Best Regards

Hi Gavin

Yes please use the new account for donations. The PayPal button on the donation board is still linked to Des' account.

The new PayPal account for Forum donations is: davidwilsonww1models@gmail.com

Thanks and kind regards

Hi Dave,
The donation I  made a couple months ago more than likely ended up going to Des's address. I hope these funds are available to the forum.
Cheers,
Bob  ;)

My sincere thanks to all who have so kindly donated to sustain the Forum. Your kindness and generosity is truly appreciated and I'm very grateful for the support you are giving to ensue the continuity of the Forum.

Bob- with regard to your kind donation, it went to Des' address but those funds have been redirected to the new Forum account.

As I mentioned previously, the donation button on the forum is keyed to Des' old address and has not yet been updated.

Anyone wishing to make a most welcome donation is asked to send it to the new PayPal forum account:

davidwilsonww1models@gmail.com

Thanks and kind regards
