    I donate from my paycheck to the food bank and I think one other charity.

    It doesn't come to much, I don't remember, I'll have to check next time.

    I should have know when I saw the thread title.:eusa_eh:

    You get perks for signing up as a contributing member and paying the price.

    You get nothing for donations. Donations are from the goodness of your heart. So, I see a problem here already insofar as YOU are concerned.:eusa_whistle:

    well i have never been so insulted...the goodness of my heart? for your information go back and see where i suggested early on that people be allowed to donate what they wished instead of a set fee...

    just cause you are in a pissy mood dont take it out on me...

    i think the donation is a good idea...

    i also ask how much it costs to run a board like this? perhaps if people knew how much it cost they would be more willing to donate...

    and i thought feedback was the place to ask when i saw the donation board since we had been talking about premium upgrades that were desired....for example knuckle head wanting changing sig lines....

    and yes you are in a pissy mood...admin or not

    Gunny - I'd donate something because I think it's a worthwhile message board, in spite of my complaints about the tone of some posters. But how do I do that? I'm a little nervous about giving anyone running this board credit card or bank information because you're obviously not apolitical and who knows how badly I might piss off one of you?

    There's nothing in the registration information or FAQ concerning donations, unless I missed it. I was going to send you a PM, but thought I'd post the question in case everyone else would like to know too.

    i think maggie ...you can do the full membership for 14.99 or simply make a donation...it goes thru paypal....it is safe.....you get all that icon stuff with the 14.99..you know the supporting member thing and all...i would think a donation gets a thank you but i really dont know...

    o and you a cool bumpsticker...says usmessboard.com where your voice counts....i think

    so if you are willing to donate 15 bucks you may as well be a member....
