drbubb Posted January 2, 2009 Report Share Posted January 2, 2009 Donation thread - You can give to GEI, if so inclined It helps to keep the site going, & encourages new features ========================================== : : here (I am still in the testing phase with this, so I will not yet move this thread to the Main board) I have now organised a facility through PayPal, which will also GEI to take donations from its members and guests. This will allow us to cover costs of hosting, and also maybe provide some incentive to introduce new features like: Dr.B's Trading Diary and the GEI-N section for Networking There are some other ideas like that in the works. And we are open to suggestions for new features. == == PAYPAL DONATION PAGE for GEI : here How does it work? Just click on : THIS LINK and it will take you to a page where PayPal can process your donation. We are currently set up for two currencies: Dollars and Pounds, only. Any others needed? I had wanted to leave the amount of the donation open, to the discretion of the parties making the donations. But that wasnt possible, so I had to choose some fixed amounts. In fact, it probably makes sense to have a minimum donation amount, such as $10 or Pds.10, since there are some small costs involved in Paypal processing the donations. Following are the amounts that I chose: Donate USD - Thanks ================ $10 : Thank you $25 : A Big Thank You $100 : Many Thanks ! ... etc. Donate GBP - Thanks ================ Pd.10 : Much Appreciated Pd.25 : You're a Star Pd.100 : A Princely gesture ! ... etc Dont feel you have to go after the big amounts. If you wanted to donate a different amount, such as $35, you could do it by clicking on the $10 button, and then on the $25 button. Sorry about this inflexibility, but I couldn't find another way of doing it, without first setting GEI as a charity, and there were some headaches, and costs involved in doing that.
