Donated $100.00 Keep up the good work guys.

I just want you guys to know that I love the web site and community you have here. I'm a beginner, but I donated $20 for now. I'm a 51 year old man, but you all and rocksmith have gotten me fired up a

Well heck, I might as well go finish the November goal for you  :)

Do you think you might be getting in a little deep with all the add ons and new features.  All these things are great but in the long run may not be cost effective. Just asking. :unsure:

Where has the bar with the donation goal gone ?

Or are the donations now flowing in, making it useless ?

When a goal is complete, it will disappear. A new goal is now up.

I remember that you, @@Unleashed2k, tried to keep a list with every single expense in the very beginning of this site, and that it was just too much work to keep that up to date. But if you listed only the donoation goals, that would be less work, right?

It would be sweet to get acces to such an overview of the donation goals from the past. Maybe divided in "one-time investments" and "continuus payments".

This way we could see what it actually costs per year to keep a site like this alive, and what has been put into improving the service, hence increasing the transparency.

 

Don't get me wrong, in my opinion the donation goal system itself is already quite transparent. And I will accept if you say that this is too much work as well. But I like the idea to see how much this community spends on this site in total numbers. :-)

Check out my easy tutorial on how to add a metronome to your CDLC: Mute the original music, play only with the metronome and find out how good you really sound! Also: Find CDLCs that have the metronome enabled!

My ideas for new features in Ignition, e.g. filters for Multitrack CDLC and Metronome CDLC.

Do you have some kind of reserve incase you dont get as many donations in the future as you are currently?  I have no clue how much you are taking in but it looks like a ton of money being spent nonstop on the site upgrades.  I'm poor and don't donate with money just with customs so I really have no reason to have an opinion on it but it would be good to have a small emergency stash incase some of the more generous people disappear right?

Thank you very much!

I would just have never imagined that it costs 2984,10 $ per year to keep such a site running. Thats a quite a lot of money!

On the other hand, with 37852 Members, thats only 8 Cent per Member and Year :-)

We're looking on bringing the costs down but for right now we're low on donations. We do have a backup just in case there are no donations but we can't rely on that. If donations was all of the sudden dry we would have to cut development costs because keeping the server up is the #1 priority. So when everyone donates you are keeping the site up and the developers happy.

 

Thank you everyone.

Besides looking at paypal is there anyway of showing donations in your profile, there is a tab there but it never shows anything, i take it it is for a future feature?

I also just noticed an add at the bottom of the page, never noticed it before .

No idea about the auto paypal thing mate, but sorry to hear about the cancer.

 

Hope the mods don't mind me saying this, but don't worry about the donations here, just concentrate on fighting through it and I hope everything turns out good.

 

All the best

My father is currently living with cancer (incurable form of lymphoma); please don't worry about donating here, focus on making sure your wife gets better - NO ONE should have to deal with cancer. Send her my best wishes please, and PM Unleashed2k if you're having issues cancelling the recurring payment.

Great work!

 

I do not have paypal but if bitcoin, with which could make a donation to people outside of US is more comfortable.

 

Regards

PayPal will accept bitcoin later and I'll enable that.

 

Don't have a PayPal account? 

Use your credit card or bank account (where available).

 

You can select that option and pay without a paypal account.

What's the reason for the donation goal jump? Did we add on more things? It was around $250 last month and this month its $650... and February was the big "annual" renewal month.

We didn't get all of Aprils. It's rest of mays + april. It definitely wasn't 250. That 250 was an additional goal.

Additionally I need to transfer our domains to a new registrar as I am parting ways from my old job and no longer want anything to do with them. So I setup a new goal for that.
