Just So You Know....
« on: April 27, 2009, 06:00:32 PM »
...in order for this forum to come back alive (to the applause of many of us), a significant amount of money was spent.  Most of it, if not all of it, was spent out of bosks personal money since the other money was depleted.  several have already sent money to help reimburse him (which he has not asked anyone to do), but I think we all agree that with the dozens of hours spent getting us back online, there isn't any reason he should also be out money as well.  If you are so inclined and able, money can be sent via paypal at
dreamtheaterforums@yahoo.com
There is also potential prizes to those who donate soon...

I'll definitely donate this summer, once I'm working again and actually have money that doesn't have to go towards ramen noodles.

I'll definitely be glad to contribute if you tell me how. I've never used Paypal (OK, only once to buy the DT book, but that was a long time ago and my brother helped me with that).

Thanks for that, Yesh. 

Yeah, this little forum crash unfortunately cost quite a bit to sort out and get through.  I want to emphasize that this is a free site.  But I do appreciate the donations.  They go a long way in helping pay for the costs of keeping the place running.  I'm going to be kicking off the forum's annual donations drive shortly.  But I'm also going to probably have a good-sized invoice I have to pay before that.  So if anyone wants to donate early, I'll still make you eligible for the prize drawings for whatever the prizes end up being.  Thanks again.

I'd donate some dollars but setting up a PayPal to work properly in this country is such a hassle. I never could get it to do what I want.  :-\

I'll try to contribute something next month when I'm working more and going to school less, right now all my energy is in exams.

I appreciate all the effort though.
