All this is fine but this is pointless till there is agreement from donors side.

So far char561 and Kevlar haven't responded here yet so till then this obviously won't go ahead.

Please there is no use PMing me with a list of inactive members,i already know this,u will have to get support from listed donors.

I have already said yes,but donors have to say yes.They are the ones who need to be PMed.

Also mightybean hasn't been helped in his problem,i urge somebody to help him out,he has the money but needs a way to send it.

This won't work till there is money and that too from every possible donor.

I got 2 ideas. Firstly why dont u send out a email to the 300 registered users. Secondly the person whos gonna be the 'buyer' should come up with the methods he wants the money received by. maybe through post to someone that does have Paypal...

the users have already been emailed and of course we do need someone to setup and account with paypal. Maybe just setup an account to receive donations and then pay for it through there. Then anyone who can donate throughout another year can do so via a quick link on the site?

Well if we got the site id certainly recommend a full time donation option for anything we can get for the continued running anyway not just for this situation.

If char would be owner,i would certainly ask him to help out mightybean here.

On setting up paypal account for the site,we would need donations from as many guys possible and therefore mightybean's help is needed.

Even if he isn't able to donate through Paypal,other ways can certainly be explored and char should be assigned the role and responsibility to receive donations through various means,co-ordinate them and look after the general finances for the site.

I think Kevlar can donate through Paypal.

@Kevlar-Can u give a link to that Guild Wars alliance forums?
I want to take a look at it,u should also ask them for their opinions regarding forum software etc.

Also jack_untune needs to be contacted and his opinion is needed here. Exclamation

As in just send the money through the post? Well suppose you could but that would cost more i would think. Paypal always seemed the firm choice in these cases so i would try and use it if all the donors can.

It requires a creditcard & mightybean dont have one if i understand correctly. i think that rules out nearly all methods of online paying without a creditcard.

As for fees. ur talking like a stamp as the price. not sure how much that is actually.

Am quite sure it would be more than a stamp if your sending it across different countries, well i would think it would occur some sort of delivery charge. Like if i sent a letter to China i would think it would cost more. But then again maybe the postal service is not as scabby as i thought they are.
Am not sure about this, the royal mail only services the UK right? So you would use another post company like those guys who drive around in the cool American type post vans with all the yellow colour, DHL or something i think they are called.

Regarding themes for SMF,i had to dig this up-

"But you see, you are acting as a 'support' person, where things go wrong and you are called to respond. That defines your world. Now, someone in Marketing - they who have to sell the product, they take a different view of the same issues, that's why there is this synergy in a company or team, where the different groups see the light in areas that is simply darkness to another person.

As a "support person", your rubric will be for a theme
"does it install"
"can I perform the basic SMF functions: register, login,post,read?"

Yes!->Theme OK Smile

As a forum administrator: I am going to need all that AND - compatibility with mods, no errors generated in error log, etc.

As a forum OWNER - My concerns with a prospective theme are the following:
Can I quickly and easily modify it to put my own personal branding/identity on it?
(Obviously I want to not look just like a 1000 other forums, right?)
If I already have an existing site, would it be easy to integrate it with my current site (ditto for current mods etc)
If I have special needs users - will this theme work for them?

Example, If the theme has customization options (selectable colors/font size) that would be a good thing.
If the theme required Flash or Java and wouldnt work without them, that would be a bad thing"


As u can see there certain concerns expressed by this individual which needs to be addressed.

I would certainly say i am more inclined towards SMF now.

Regarding donors,3 is minimum which is why mightybean's support is greatly needed.

ok i just thought it would cost more if you was sending it to another country or something. Am also not sure how much stamps are but am sure it ain't a lot.

There are some great SMF themes here,though very few work for version 1.1.8.

Good category to search for themes.Fantasy and futuristic ones.
