It's not often that we solicit for donations.  We HIGHLY value those who contribute to the project, because server rental is very expensive.  However, donations have been non-existent for the past few months Sad

We'd like to take this time to remind you that you can donate $5 to $150 straight from this website.  http://www.yabbforum.com/donate.php

And XIMinc now has a highly customized, brand spanking new billing system!  If you have any suggestions or problems with it, please let us know.  If you'd like to change the amount of the donation from the values listed, please let us know.  We can add it!

Thanks and Happy YaBBing.

Corey is right, if everyone around here would give 5 $, the Yabb Team would be rich!

And if i have the choise to pay five bucks for 2 cups of coffee or for my favoid Bulletin Board, than YaBB ist the more valuable investment in my eyes.

Therefore i donated 5 $ via sourceforge and i beg you to do the same! Smiley
(It takes 1 min if you have paypal.)

That's a great way to look at it!  $5 for Starbucks coffee that I can make in my apartment or $5 to help us pay for the server.   Thanks for your contribution.  The billing system we use on the website is as easy as Paypal - you can use either, but we'd much prefer donating through yabbforum.com.

Update - a few bugs in the billing system have been fixed.  If you tried to donate in the past and it failed, please try again.

A few months back I asked a simple question if donating thru paypal was a possibility, no one answered that question. I tried to find my post, but couldn't, I haven't posted much, so you can probably find it somewhere.

If others where thinking the same and noticed no one answered the question, it's no wonder no one donated $$.

I don't recall not answering it, because I know I've answered that question several times before.

We do not accept PayPal right now though XIMinc, and I don't plan on changing that.  We need all transactions going through the same system.  However, you can donate to YaBB through SourceForge, which DOES use PayPal - it's just not our preferred method.

So I guess in the end, the answer is yes.  http://sourceforge.net/donate/index.php?group_id=9008

Was just about to donate via this link, but was a bit worried that XIMinc page does not appear to be a secure one. I'm a bit of a novice, so am I barking up the wrong tree or being over-cautious (or both!). Thanks for the great software.

As soon as YaBB 2 goes final I plan on buying a license for that version, I would buy one now but I do not want to get the linces for Y1 and not be able to rename the Y2 files for use on my site.

  HuhWhy is the XIMinc page donations page not https?
Via the SourceForge PayPal link, the seller comes up as OSDN/VA. Given the warning about being clear which project you are donating to, whats the VA bit? Certaibnly not clear that its coming to yourselves!

C'mon guys - I'm wanting to donate here - just need some clarity!!!
  

Please don't PM me for support - I'll only go and ignore it!

XIMinc will be https soon enough.  I just haven't implemented the secure portion of the billing system I'm writing.  As far as SourceForge's paypal goes, there's nothing we can do about how it appears on their site.  It should give the money to YaBB's account, possibly with a small portion going to SourceForge.  I'm not exactly sure how they work, and we don't get many donations through there.

As stated above.  XIMinc doesn't support PayPal.  Only SourceForge accepts Paypal, if you wish to donate to us through their site (http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/yabb), but I think some of the money goes to them too.

Thanks Corey, I didn't read through the entire thread otherwise I would have seen the posts.  As soon as your donation site become secure with the little yellow padlock, I will make a donation.  I would do it now if there was a phone number I could call, but I know what a pain that would be for yabb...thanks for all the hard work you guys have been putting in lately and over the years!
