Plea For Donations

Started by Jim,

70 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Your continued generosity has helped make TalkChelsea the magnificent place it is today, but we once again need your help to keep the site running.

As you might know i invested heavily out of my own pocket to move us to an impressive new server over a year ago which runs emphatically on match-days - but if that is to continue then we need a little help from yourselves!

Anything - no matter how small - is gratefully accepted Even £2 each month would go a long, long way towards us meeting the hosting fees throughout the year!

It's ever so cheeky to have to ask you guys like this, but we have to be absolutely transparent and say that our funds are drying up, and we desperately need some help in keeping the site running as fantastically well as it has been for the last few months!

Thanks for taking the time to read, and thanks in advance for any donations - no matter how big or small - you may make as a result.

Donating is incredibly easy and all you need is a PayPal account, so please help us keep the site running!

Yours very faithfully,

Jim and the rest of the staff team. :yes:

Dunno if it is considered advertising or not (I have no affiliation with this website), but if a fair share of our members would sign up to www.datacoup.com they would be able to generate almost $3 a month, depending on what data you want to share. Not a lot, but if this was donated to TalkChelsea it would add nicely to the server maintenance costs. I have almost accumulated $7, and I've not been using it for long. :)

Can't I scan in some cash and send it by mail to you? The last time I dealt with paypal it was such a fucking pain in the ass that I cba to go through that again, plus they take a criminal cut from all deposits :(

considering how many people use this site and are members, I wonder if it would make sense to put someone's forum profile in suspension if he/she has not donated at least 1 or 2 pounds in 12 or 13 months. just a thought. It's just a troubling situation when one person or a handful of people must keep something running for 400 people, but I guess people expect things to be free on the web.

Bravo Muzchap! :getin:

I understand where you're coming from, but technically, that cannot be implemented because we have a lot of members who live in countries that don't have PayPal.

In principle as well, we can't (and don't want to) force people to pay. It goes against the very definition of "donation".

Maybe something like a True Blue status like a monthly donation or a way to encourage people to donate, bit like ChelseaTV but for a forum?

Ah we are only 8% away from the target, so I'll go on and donate the other £8 haha it's a good cause.

I've thought about that before giving members extra forum features, its knowing what to offer... and if people would actually keep donating each month.
