After more than two years and the prodding of several members here, there is finally a way to make donations to Boomboxery. There is now a "Donate" button in the header menu! :w00t:

The process uses PayPal and is fairly simple - pick an amount and type and then click on the Donate button. :-) You will then be taken to PayPal to finish the transaction.

Keep in mind that members are NOT required to make donations to use the website, but donors will get a special icon under their avatar. Eventually (probably a long time from now), being a donor might have its privileges. ;-)

Max, according to PayPal your donation is listed as a "Pending echeck". Your icon will open appear once the status is updated to "Completed" by PayPal. ;-)

AAAAAAAH! :-D
I need to transfer it from my bank account but I thought PayPal does not mind and put it out for me....he is not my Pal anymore : :lol:
Anyway - sorry for my cheapo donation but it is all I can do right now as a 19 year old student. If every great member does it, it will help a lot! :thumbsup:

Whoa there FD we were only asking because we figured you wouldn't do it and we wanted to look good. :lol: :lol:
Geez now I'm going to have to follow through and donate. :yes:

Bobby it's about time, I think a lot of members weren't comfortable with you carrying the whole burden yourself. :thumbsup:
Of course I might be talking out of an orifice other than my mouth, it wouldn't be the first time. :blush:

Good luck with that. He won't even change mine. : I was even locked out of the 'for sale' room until I hit the 'magic number'. Fatdog has no favorites :nonono: He's all 'blah blah blahbity blah not fair babe to everyone else blah blahbity blah' :annoyed: So very bothersome that FD is....I suppose that's what makes him a fair mod. :-/
