    Save VHLinks.com Campaign for 2015! - DONATE NOW

    Good morning all,

    So everyone remembers last year's drama with the site possibly closing in October, the discussion over doing a yearly donation campaign to keep the site going, and my internal debate on whether I wanted to go that route. In the end, we did it, everyone was amazing, and we raised the money we needed and the site was paid for 2014. Well it's been a year if you can believe that (well 11 months actually), and it's time to see if we can do it again.

    First of all, not having to pay the server last year was a huge load off of my plate, so I really thank all of you who donated last year for doing so. It was a life-saver financially. And frankly it will be again this year.

    So I want to get the drive started early, in hopes having all the funds by the middle of September (if we get so lucky) so I can pay for the next year and be done.

    The server price is the same as it was last year, minus about maybe $150 in donations I got over the course of the year that are being applied. We're looking at needing 130 people to donate $30 and we'll be there again. Again there is NO OBLIGATION for ANYONE to donate, it's purely up to you. Nobody is required to donate to post here, this is completely voluntary! Also if you donated last year, and you're obviously donating a bit under the year timeframe, I'll still make sure it doesn't end until next October, so don't worry about that. You will get in fact more than the year in terms of time.

    As far special stuff for those that donate. The mods and I really couldn't come up with anything, but I am VERY willing to implement any good ideas you guys have for those who donate. So if you have some thoughts, please share in this thread, by PM, or email. If it's something that I can do and it's a cool idea, we'll do it! I have NO problem adding special things that you guys would like.

    I do have some VHLinks stickers left over and for those that donate. I'll send them until I run out, just make sure your address is in PayPal when you donate.

    Below is the donation link for PayPal, remember there are three tiers...$30, $51.50, and $100. You can also click the gold "Premium Members" link where it thanks the newest Premium Members. Goes to the same place. If you wish to donate without using PayPal, send me a PM and I'll get you an address.

    2015 VHLinks Server Donations!

    I may post this in various places on the site so don't people don't miss it, and I really would love to get it done early this year and move on from it.

    I thank you for your continued support of the site...which incidentally will be having its 15th Anniversary on September 1st! Wow does time fly!

    It does, it just opens it in the real site and you have to log in. Tapatalk doesn't have a way of doing the subscription pages yet.

    Nope. It's telling me I'm not logged in. I'll donate from my PC when I get home. Gotta have one of those stickers!

    I know. Log in via that way then it will work. Or wait 'til you get home too.

    I think I maybe have 30-40 stickers left. They're actually really nice stickers.

    I posted in the other other announcement thread, but I figured I would come and gloat about my contribution here as well

    Come on Linkers, let's do this!
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Brett, you should offer a special "multi-donor" icon for those that've done so...

    Well guys I'm a little worried now. After two weeks we're not even a 1/4 of the way there. I did want to be done with this by the 15th, but unless there is a miracle we won't make that. But we have to be done by October 1st no way around that date. It's when the server is due.

    I thank all of you who have donated so far. It is VERY much appreciated!

    Same question as last time (I can't remember how we worked it, in the end). Can I pay for two separate Linkers, in one Paypal transaction? Do I need to PM you? Cheers.

    (Don't think that one transaction means you can scrimp me on the stickers!)

    Maybe a site-wide banner is in order? I know you stickied the topic in most of the forums, but I feel a lot of people skip right over the stickied announcement threads.
