  • Yes, PayPal then gives you the option to make it recurring.

  • Yes, same link. Just choose a one off rather than recurring.

  • Excellent-Part of donation made courtesy of @Rastapopoulos extremely generous Pearson Touche offer. Rest to follow up come pay day.

  • @TW hooked me up with a baby seat for the car. Cheers!

  • Sold some tyres and everyone kindly paid via gift so 4% fees and a little extra have been sent as a one off extra donation.

  • @Sluggo very generously helped me out with a shifter. £20 Donation to forum and to WWF (the animal one…not the wrestling one!). Cheers

  • Thank you, everyone.

  • Just donated after selling some bits, plus I've learnt shit tonnes from this forum over the years so wanted to contribute!

  • Small donation on behalf of @moocher for some 3D printing kindness today :)

  • @Velocio for regular donations, is it better for you to get a smaller monthly amount or a larger annual/biannual one (totalling the same)?

  • Small and regular is best, it makes the coffers more predictable (one-off donations are hugely appreciated, but tend to make it hard to know whether we actually have enough for n months).

    General guideline:

    • No donation under £2 (it's pointless as PayPal fees will wipe it out almost entirely)
    • Scheduled is better than one-off, doesn't have to be monthly - every 3 months is still good
    • A larger number of small donors is better than a few people donating a lot (if someone stops donating it doesn't crater the finances)

    So I roughly advise "a beer a month" on the lower end, "a bottle of wine every month or two" on the moderate end, and "let the server get wasted" on an ad-hoc or annual basis.

    The server consumes alcohol apparently.

  • Just seen this^ explainer - will bear in mind for future.
    For anyone that's supported my work and generously donated to causes, I did a year end/new year summary in Unconditional Love and gave a lump donation to say personal thanks for being such a great community;
    Thanks all, you're ace.
