No, there has been no response at all and the bill is fast approaching.

Anything at all helps.

PayPal: headoffice@huahinmedia.com
I paid in US$
I had the same experience but have withheld my donation for now until i can straighten out some technical difficulties I am currently suffering with my paypal account.

Memo to DavAdmin: as you can see users of this website are willing to donate; The reason why the donations have not come pouring in is that you have made it difficult for them/us to do it. Please try to put yourself in our shoes.

@ cassowary - massive thanks for keeping this forum alive for another year, we have edited the post to remove the personal information

@ neverfail - nothing could be simpler than PayPal - it is two clicks to send money overseas. You could use a complex international SWIFT transfer but the bank is likely to eat 30% of your donation in forex spreads, commissions, and fees and take 3 days to process the payment.

Aside from those two options, there are cryptocurrencies but if users are struggling with PayPal, there is no way they will be able to make a transaction using digital assets (though it would cost virtually nothing and complete in seconds).

We have hit the target now anyway from the single donor so no further donations are necessary. Thanks again.

Its that time of year again and the forum hosting bill will be due soon.

As before, we're kindly asking for donations to keep it running for another year. $100 should cover the hosting costs for the next 12 months.

PayPal: headoffice@huahinmedia.com
Payment in crypto stablecoins USDT and USDC is also accepted. PM for wallet address.

Thanks in advance for anything you can donate.

Passing this along from the Davosman finance committee
The hosting services for this forum are due to expire next month. It makes nothing in terms of revenue so somebody has to pay to keep it online. We would like to keep the forum running but in the current situation funding has dried up, so we're asking for donations from you, the members, to keep it going.

Every little helps, though the target is $100. You can pay via PayPal to headoffice@huahinmedia.com.

Thanks in advance for anything you can provide, we hope to still be here this time next year! You can PM one of the administrators or moderators if you would like them to know you have donated or reply to this thread.

I just sent $50 to your email address above I hope somebody else can pony up the rest.

I am willing to help but I do not have PayPal. I can do a bank transfer, for which I need the required IBAN.
