Website donations

Unread postby ~Z~ » Sun Apr 13, 2008 2:55 pm

As many of you are aware, railroadfan.com has been upgraded over to a new web hosting server. The additional costs are substansial, and am encouraging donations to help keep the site as a free service. The new site costs approx. 5 times the amount that the old website had, and I simply can't afford to pay that kind of cost out of pocket. No donation is too small; if you only have $5 to spare, it is appreciated. If the services this site has provided saved you money in any way, please think of that.
I would like to take this last moment to thank ALL of you whom have continued to make this place the place that it is.

Snail Mail donations: Please send me a PM on here, or email me at zack@railroadfan.com for the local address.


Here's a link for Paypal if you wish to donate that way:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=2162777
Paypal does take a percentage out of the donation, so snail mail is preferred.

For all of those that have donated, I can't thank you enough...I'm amazed that I haven't had to ask for donations, as it's been a little over 2 1/2 years since we moved to this newer server and donations have trumped hosting fees. Until last month that is, as we're actually now behind. I know money can be scarce, but if you have anything to spare, the site could use some help. Of course I take no overhead for my time behind the scenes, and all donations are strictly for hosting/domain name charges. Either PM me or email me at zack@railroadfan.com if you'd like to send a check via USPS, or use the PayPal "Donate" link at the bottom of the message board pages.
