Our domain and site is set to expire on Jan 17, 2017 and to get another year it will cost $150. We are looking for any donation to keep this community alive. Any amount will be great. Thanks for allowing me to run the best  community on the internet.

Yeah...when wolf stops fucking with the software and quits trying to force some 'new look' bullshit down our throats every 6 months or so I'll think about chipping in again, but it seems every time I do I log into some unusable foolishness I have no interest in relearning.
All hail my new signature!

Admit it. You're secretly green with envy.

I haven't touched the look of this site in quite some time outside of enabling a snow option that can be disabled.

For what it's worth, I'm not going to be making any future changes to the sites function or design.  So I've stopped doing exactly what you're complaining about.

Whether you donate is up to you, but I'm not sure you're being very fair to me personally.

@wolf39us

I tried paying last year, and the year before that. But last year I didn't have a creditcard (I still don't have paypal), and this time it seems to ask me to register with paypal even though I'm trying to pay with creditcard. Maybe next year I'll have paypall. I dunno... I'd have to look into it first...

If you feel okay with it, pm me a bank-account of yours I can wire it to you? It's not going to be a helluva lot. But I'll contribute my part. And I'm sure you'll use it for the site.

It's probably just me, but maybe there are others willing to contribute who have the same problem?

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

All I know is that it's asking me to create a paypal account when I'm trying to pay through creditcard.
Maybe I'm just technologically handicapped, but I'm just not getting through.

Click on "make a donation".  You think you are going to Pay Pal, and you are, but at the bottom of the donation box, there is an option to pay by credit card.  Pay Pal will take a few cents out of that.  I know.  It's weird.

I did all that. I filled in the credit-card stuff. It still wants me to make an account before I can make the transaction.
I have to fill in I'm from Belgium, and that's when it appears. You can check that for yourself, I believe.

Now that you mention it, I had an account years ago, so it may have recognized me.  Sorry about that.

I went through the process.  On the page where you put in the credit card information at the very bottom it asks you if you want to create a paypal password.  Last option says "No, I don't want an account now".
