Lightbulb Forum Donation and Expense List

Donations are not required to be a member or visitor here. If you feel compelled to give, we are willing to receive. Donations are not tax deductible. There are no additional privileges conferred to those who donate, unless the donation is in the six figure range, in which case we will just give you the forum outright. All donations will be accounted for here in this thread and our costs will be listed as well. There is no expectation of service if you donate. If something bad happens, and Troll[1-4] and Snake1 run away, your money is gone. If you knew how little we know about this forum stuff you would be greatly disturbed. The Trolls were eating Cheetos and Sprite when they coded the donation page and engine so all sorts of bad things could be going on. You probably should not use any credit cards that you care about.

Thanks!

W38 Summary
  • Balance from previous week: $140
  • New donations: $185
  • Expenditures: $175
  • New balance: $150
  • Total donations overall: $325
  • Notes:
    • We purchased the $175 "lifetime" security update package this week and upgraded the forum to the latest 3.x version. The security update package covers the 3.x verson and the new 4.x version. We are going to try to stay with the 3.x version as long as there are security updates and bug fixes. The 4.x version is a lot more complicated and very different, but eventually we will have to switch when they stop supporting what we use now. The good news is we are covered for both!
    • We are going to inquire with our server provider to see if we can pay 5 months in advance, which would cover the $150 balance we have. With 5 months paid in advance even a mild trickle of donations should be enough to match future server expenses.
