Forum Donation Drive

The forum reached 100 registered users today. Thank you folks!

At this opportunity, I have decided to start a donation drive. This forum is powered by a commercial software called vBulletin. It's very nice, and it costs $85 per year. It's actually $85 + tax, which happen to be exactly $100. I have paid that from my pocket. I wouldn't mind seeing some of those money again. Let's say I handle the tax ($15) and the rest will be raised by you, forum dwellers.

Now I want to stress that this is purely optional. Think of it as expressing appreciation for me running Angband.oook.cz and this forum. The users who decide not to donate will not get any worse. The users who do donate, on the other hand, will get a nice line next to their posts saying how generous they were.

The amount of money you decide to donate is purely up to you to decide. Please don't send more than $85, or whatever the current remainder is. Mind you that the fees are 50c + percentage, so don't bother sending less than $2, because that will only serve to feed up PayPal.

To donate, send money using PayPal to email address pav@oook.cz or use the donation button in the announcement. Don't forget to put your forum username to the comment box, so I know who to give credit to.

Gah, it's reasons like this why I need to get a credit card one of these days. I'm not really capable of giving any money at the moment (ie. unable to, not unwilling to), so the best I can do is give a big thanks to pav, Andrew, and everyone else who ever worked on this game or it's support.

If/when I do get a credit card, be assured that some of my (small) income will head this way.

No offense, but this is why I don't like yearly fees for commercial software for the software [as opposed to support for said software].
