Donate to keep the forum going strong!

Post by Rommeltje »

Our hosting account has to be renewed every two years. In order to not have to do a donation run every two years, I'll just keep the donation option open the whole time. If you want to show your support, this is a great way to do it. :up:

There are certain rewards for donations: from €5 euro (£5, 6 USD, 8 CAD, 8 AUD) onwards, you'll get the "WWGFA donor" title. Non-premium members get access to the premium area if they donate more than €15 (£14, 17 USD, 23 CAD, 24 AUD).* Don't forget to send me a PM to reap your rewards.

So without further ado:

EUR:
GBP:
USD:
CAD:

If you want to donate anonymously, read the next post.


*We reserve the right to withhold access to the premium area if members do not adhere to the rules of the forum or present a threat to the safe environment of the premium area. In such an event, the donation will be returned.

Donating anonymously
If you want to give money, but you don't want me to see your real name and/or address (although I'm very trustworthy, if I do say so myself. :) Your name is completely safe with me, and I'll forget it right away, but still), here's how you can do that. I've tested it myself, so I know it works:
  • Step 1
    Set up a new Paypal business account (the free, standard one, obviously).

    Step 2
    Fill out the account form with a fake business name and address. This is the name that will appear on my Paypal account when you make a donation. Use a real e-mail address, but use your throwaway/spam/porn/secret one.

    Step 3
    Give your real name and info in the ownership section, otherwise your account cannot be verified. (e-mail can be the same as in the previous step). This name will not be visible when you make payments.

    Step 4
    Verify with your bank account (probably works with credit card as well, but I only tried it with my bank account, so I can't guarantee that). The verification process takes a few days.

    Step 5
    Once verified, you can click on any of the buttons in my previous post to start donating. On my account, it will say that I received money from [fake business name] with your email address, and nothing else.

    Optional steps

    Step 6
    Instead of clicking the donate buttons, you can also log in to your paypal account, go to the tab "transfer money" (or something like that, I only know it in Dutch, but it's the second tab. You should be on the "pay online" page). In the "To:" box, type wwgfa@hotmail.com, there should be a little pop up (or pop down, actually) saying that this is a verified e-mail address. In the next box, fill in how much money you want to donate, and below that specify what kind of payment you want to make (I made it "private" and "miscellaneous" (or "other", or whatever it says in English)).

    Step 7
    Click Next, and finish the payment. Just like in step 5, I will only see your alias, and not your real name.
Unfortunately, when you use your bank account, it'll take five days before the money is actually transferred, but I will get a notification of it already. If you use your credit card, it will be there instantly.

Let me know if you have any questions!
