Default donations

as a lot of you noticed on the left side of the forum i put a paypal donation button below our sponsors. let me say first that you are not required to donate to the site. motorbicycling.com is free and always will be. however because of the growth i had to put the site on a dedicated server which is pretty expensive to lease each month. i hope you all are enjoying the site and i will keep adding more features as i find them. thank you again to everyone for making this site such a success! without each of you we would not have such a wonderful site to learn and teach each other about these wonderful machines called motorized bicycles.

Cruiser, first and foremost thank you again for putting this together. I hope to be first inline to put some thing in the hat.

The other day I was looking at vBullitan forum trying to find out how to water mark pics so they could not be lifted with out the credit going to the actual builder and realized what all this costs. I was going to PM you and ask if it would be OK to send a lil something. So, ASAP and thanks again.

Thanks for making this forum possible. Those out there have saved me both time and money and added to my enjoyment and knowledge along the way. I just made a donation and hope that others can as well.

Dan have you checked out Gimp? It will do just about anything you want. Easy to add layers like a watermark and then merge them so they can't be removed.

I will also be making a donation. Some other sites I post on (Garden tractor forums, Tractor forums, etc.) use a "Site Sponsor" tag under the poster's avatar. Posters who donate can also include the tag in their signature. They usually have about a $20 sponsorship donation.

The tags are a great way to "spread the word" about supporting the forum.

that's a great idea. when you all donate let me know you would like a custom title and i would be glad to give you one. there is no minimum on donations. everything is graciously accepted. you pick the title and i will replace the one you have with it.

I threw a little bit into the pot.
Stopping by the forum is a part of my busy daily routine so just being a member of this forum is enough for me!

you do not need to have paypal they just process the transactions thru your paypal account if you have one or they will process your credit card or check for you. when you click on the donate button on the paypal page just click continue on the bottom left where it says don't have paypal account and then you enter card or bank information. paypal is probably the most secure of any banking systems on the net.
