    Any which way that works for us living outside the U.S. Paypal, VISA or simply sending money to a bank account. A donate button on the AGD website would work as well. If there is a concern over not raising enough, and having the hassle of refunding, why not simply quote the sum we're aiming for, and extend the poll here on A.O with sums people are willing to pledge. In my mind the vast majority on this site are responsible adults, whom we can expect to own up to their pledge, right?

    if you do that and everyone knows what everyone else is pledging then this will turn ugly fast imagine this:

    Person 1 will pledge 200$
    Person 2 will pledge 10$
    Person 3 will pledge 100$
    Person 3 will pledge 50$
    Person 5 will pledge 500$
    Person 6 will pledge 5$

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm poor and wont be able to donate alot... but Lets say I donated 5$ and someone else dontated 200$.... like it or not that person will be the better person in eeryones eyes. you may deny it but it will happen

    If this is the chosen method, then please provide address.
    And as far as canceling check, I would be fine if you just ripped them up.

    everyone's situation is different. if people can and want to give, do it. whether it be a large or small amount, something is better than nothing. if anyone is looked at differently for not donating as much as someone else, that's pretty messed up.

    Agreed but it happens, everyday

    Ah, the joys of centralization. The power grabs, the jockeying for status. We'll eventually look back upon these times, laugh uncomfortably, and then change the subject.

    Might want to see if indiegogo will let you do it.

    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    It looks like Indigogo may allow us to do this. Tom, can you check this out?

    It looks like indiegogo will let us do a campaign. Before I start it we need to see a bit more momentum than a few people.

    Maybe a new thread with clearer title is good too. The 'redecorate' title isnt really what this thread has become. its more of a SAVE AUTOMAGS.ORG kinda thing...


    Also, Tom I would like to think that there are some people watching this thread but dont make a post. They might be on board too and choose to just not post about it.

    Sticky in all forums too. Especially the classifieds. For people that buy and sell parts, no AO to do it on would not be cool for lots of people.

    Oh, and if word gets to other forums...say MCB, I would hope many more maggers would come running in to help too.

    Heck...if Tom did a kissing booth at Living Legends to raise money their would be more than enough

    Why not open a paypal account for donations?
    It makes the most sense...

    I would like to raffle off some parts to help raise funds, but I dont want to run it through my paypal account.

    There's apparently some stipulations with that. I'm about 90% of the time sending money as personal for gear and what not too people. I've been sent paypal nasty-grams about 3 different times about it and have BS'ed my way out of each one. Not sure what the rule is but there is something stupid for "donations"

    Ok... I didn't read it all, but...

    I will help with any coding for Vbulletin... Some of my work is on display over at BEO.

    If my finances allow, I will make a modest donation.

    I have been shooting Automags for as long as there have been Automags, and I would rather not see this site fade away.

    Paypal

    TK: Please just open a paypal account for donations.
    I already owe for about 5 years of "membership", so I'll happily donate some cash. I don't even care if it is used for the forum.

    As far as the forum, fork over a few hundred for the new Vbulletin. Then pay this hackjob company (Delaware?) to ship your data over to a respected host like Bluehost.com and we are done!

    I'm down for some cash.

    I would also go for a shoebox raffle.

    btw, I hadn't noticed this thread take a serious turn (from the past few years) until Shane brought it up on MCB. There might be others ignoring the old topic.

    May I ask how big the forum database actually is (minus private user data, of course)?










    How big is the database?
