Our site is a good one, i have received PMs, from members saying they are glad it is in the hands of people that care. We all want the best for our site, and for it to keep running, and also we want through the suppliers to be able to get help and upgrades from them as and when we need to.

I have been in dialogue with Invision Power and our licence ran out last september, so it shows that keane wa not really bothered. As you may be aware Im an old git but young at heart and retired, and to run a site, there are costs, Lonspurs has already helped greatly, and OGY, and Vortex 444 have offered.

Just to give you an idea i now own the domain, well you never really own it you pay annually for it, but im ok with that, but then there is the server around £70.00 per year, and now the licence we have to buy from invision power, Because Keane (former owner) is not responding to my attempts to contact him to ask him to transfer the licence to me, the only other tyhing we can do is purchase a new licence, this costs $100.00 for the core product, and the add on we have for the forums etc is $75.00, so we buy a new lcence, that lasts really for ever, but does cost (once bought ) $25.00 every 6 months, but then we can get help, down loads, upgrades etc, only as it stands the site can not be changed because Keane has the password for the licence, any way these Dollar prices are 175=£125.00 roughly, then the £70.00 for server, but as i say once the licence is bought it is only 25 dollars every six months about £16.00, so annual cost (after licence bought)is about, £90.00 per year, i will do the domain i will not put that in the equalization. So i thought of setting up as PS account on paypal, just to collect each year if poss just our running costs, (if we can) even a pound will help. :niceone:

Emailed you a few minutes ago buddy, check it out when you have a spare minute or two. The licence is something that enables you to update to the latest forum software when it becomes available. If you're happy with the way the forum software is, there isn't any need to buy a new licence if you don't want to.

As I've said before I don't think it's unreasonable for members to pay a 'membership fee' if it enables to the site to keep going

Running costs are about 100.00 per year. I would only want to collect that amount, as soon as we have enough i will say so on site, its purely for running costs. :niceone: I will sort out a link a bit later. :niceone:

Hey guys

Ok in order to pay into planet spurs I believe you have to set up your own Paypal account (it's free and this is the only way I believe we can all contribute)

Once you've gone through the steps of setting up your own Paypal account which is linked to your debit/credit or bank account (whichever you choose) click on make a payment tab, then type in journeyman's email address for planet spurs account which I'm sure he will tell you at your request, It will then go to the next page and you simply type in the amount you want to put in and you click on the make payment now button (or something like that) and it will do the transaction for you. Journeyman then gets a message and you accepts your payment and ta da your payment has been completed.

Hope this helps guys

Marcus

Cheers mate for that. If all look in ANNOUNCEMENTS I have pinned a thread called PAYPAL LINK, hopefully that will take you to it. Cheers guys, :niceone:


IMPORTANT.

I would like to announce that one of our regular posters has donated a sum of money large enough to pay off this year and about 98% of next years running costs, so with what i will put in we are up and running now all this year and next. This person wishes to remain anonymous, so i will respect that persons wishes.
