    Default Save VHLinks Campaign For 2016 - DONATE NOW!

    Good morning all,

    Well it's that time of year of again! This will mark the third year we will do a donation drive to have the VHLinks server paid for by you guys the members for the next year. After hearing people ask me when we were starting the server drive this year, and realizing we struggled a bit to get there before the deadline on October 1st last year, I think starting it a few weeks earlier than last year would be a good idea. So today's the day!

    First of all, as I have said last year and will say again, not having to pay the server is a huge load off of my plate finacially, so I really thank all of you who have donated to keep this place going. It was a life-saver financially. And frankly it will be again this year.

    My goal is to get the server paid in early September and we can just be done with it for the next year, which is another reason to start earlier this year.

    The server price is the same as it was last year, minus about $85 in donations I got over the course of the year that are being applied. I didn't expect we'd get a lot of donations during the year, I know most people wait until we do this. We're looking at needing about 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.

    Also every year I try to think of stuff I could give as an extra incentive on the site for people to donate, but apart from the little icon and the basics of a premium membership, I can never really come up with something special that makes any sense. If you have any ideas, please feel free to send them to me and if we can implement them we will. Last year I did send out VHLinks stickers I had left over from years ago, but sadly they're all gone now.

    Below is the donation link for PayPal, remember there are three tiers...$30, $51.50, and $100. You can also click the link at the top of the site that says "VHL.com Donate." Goes to the same place. If you wish to donate without using PayPal, send me a PM and I'll get you an address. We will also be updating a banner near the top of the site so everyone can see the progress of where we're at as well. We did this last year and I think it was helpful.

    2016 VHLinks Server Donations!

    I may post this in various places on the site so 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 has served the VH online community since September 1, 1999. Hard to believe we've been here that long!

    Give me a few weeks to stash some of the weekly paycheck away and I'll gladly cut you a check. I highly enjoy this place.

    Maybe one perk for donors could be to eliminate, or at least increase, the time limit on editing posts.

    i'll be donating no matter what, but as someone did earlier, a small request. i have a worthless degree in Sociology. i feel like you need a degree in astrophysics to post pics or videos on this board. i'm well aware that many have figured out how to do it. photobucket? urls? wtf??!! i KNOW i'm not the only one who can't figure this shit out. i have some pics of my son and i at his first concert from last week. would love to post it. no fucking clue how. and i don't mean those small pics. i want the full page shit !! listening to Drop Dead Legs, enjoying a drink or two, just messing around, but i really would like to know how to do these things. if it can't be made easier, maybe a really easy to understand tutorial that stays as a sticky for all time to help dummies like me.

    thanks !!

    Ok posting pics is easy. I can put up a short YouTube video how to do it. To post an MP3, you have to click the "Go Advanced" button when you're replying and go down to where it says "Manage Attachments" and then pick the file. It's kind of a pain, but it's the only way.

    You'd do the same thing with a video, but I'll tell you right now, your best bet is to use YouTube for your videos and then link to it from here. You can only upload very small videos to the site. It's not worth it for you. Just use YouTube for that, it's the best way.

    I'll put the posting images video in the Announcements forum, so everyone can see it.

    Done.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
