I think Amarie is more worried about the impressions to a Tolkien Estate with an itchy trigger finger than the technical reality of whether or not it's possible to make a profit.

I am certainly Eldo Amarie was not trying to cast any aspirations on your character or to accuse you of trying to make profit from the site. No one would think that.

yep I agree with Petty. no one would ever think that. To be honest I dont understand what Amarie means, but maybe she is referring to the Tolkien estate and WB being trigger happy with regards anything with the name of Tolkien attached. remember that pub they tried to close down because it was called The Hobbit.

Yes, what the nice people above said. I was just trying to remind you of the wargs, Eldo. My post was direct at the comment about all the Tolkien sites never having trouble, and I was simply trying to say that things can be seen diffrent than intended (my post being now being an example of that).

Jolly good, just a little misunderstanding, then! Very Happy Eldo, I'll chip in, but I need to transfer some money to my paypal account first, so it'll take a few days.

Eldorion wrote:Well the domian name renewal came up early than I expected, but fortunately Forumotion offered it to us for free again because of our high level of activity.  I was also able to use the last of the money from the very successful 2012 fundraising drive to re-up the no ads thing.  So we're in the clear through mid-June 2015, though we have no money left in the forum treasury now.  If people want to donate now since the topic was brought up recently they are welcome to, otherwise I'll raise this issue in a new thread in a year's time.

PS We haven't done it before, but in addition to the domain name and ad stuff, there's an option to remove Forumotion copyright from the forum pages.  I assume this would remove the links to other Forumotion sites that are seen when viewing the forum without being signed in, and possibly a few other things as well.  I've never thought this was worth it, but if we ever find ourselves with a large enough surplus I might try it out.

PPS I had been thinking of handing out one or two @hobbitmovieforum.com e-mail addresses as an incentive to donate, if anyone is interested by that. ;)I hadn't figured out the rules for such a giveaway, though.

 Cheerleader Yay!

I think I'll chip in next time round.

What would be the point of an @hobbitmovieforum.com email address?

My apologies for the misunderstanding, Amarie.

There isn't really one, but it might be neat just to say you have it. The idea of using localized e-mail addresses as a donation perk is one I got from another forum I used to post at, and I thought it was really cool at the time. But then again, I was like 15, so maybe I was just easily impressed. Razz

Took a bit longer than I planned, but the cash is on its way to my paypal account now, so in two or three days you should see a donation ticking in Smile

Donations (domain name) - Page 3 Tenor

It's time to renew our domain name + make sure we are add free, and we've spent all (well most) of what Eldo had saved up.

I'm hardly going to go hungry if I have to pay 52-or-so euros a year (20-ish for the following year, since we have some left), but if you want to beat your chest and boast that you are not only wasting time here, but also money; then here's your chance.

I don't understand what a 'credit' is in this context.

Sheees, clicking around I find that domain is still free since we have high activity and we don't really need that package I kept getting referred to. Rolling Eyes

Being add free is 2000 credits a year, so we have enough for one year (until June 2019) and half the next.

but what does that translate to monetarily? 2000 credits/50 euro = 40 credits/euro?

2000 Credits costs 23.70 USD or 19.80 EUR (according to the skrill system-option)

Approx 85credits /USD and 101 credits/euro

A few people will jump in at opportune times. I'm wondering if I should do it now or wait a year.

Donations have always been a completely voluntary thing, but due to me refilling the coffers just before stepping down it hasn't been a concern for a couple years, as Amarië noted above. We've had a couple other (relatively) sizable gifts previously but also plenty of people chipping in with $5-10 here or there which also helped a lot, especially when I was 16.

Forumotion credits don't expire so a gift now is worth just as much as a gift a year or two down the road. Smile
