How to donate without a paypal account? ...........you should be able to pay via the paypay donate button using your card without joining paypal i think..click the "continue" left of the paypal login area
*We really need yearly donations. Why not subscribe for just £5 a year..the price of a pint!.........
click to pay the first sub of £5, then in each subsequent year you will be asked if you wish to continue with your sub
Why not advertise your goods and services on Fibsboard?
got an exhibition or a money tourney coming up? - a £5 donation gets you a small ad (LH Menu on front page) or go on the front page for a few weeks..for £10....want a longer term ad? we will gladly replace existing google ad space for boarders. This is one of our ads on the right and there is a small Crystalsolutions ad on the front page on the right too.
we have has as many as 5000 members (now pruned to 2000), average 2 email-confirmed new members a day and we get well over 100 visitors a day from over 100 countries; 35% new, average 31 members online a day, av time on site for all visitors is > 6 minutes.
we welcome new Sponsors..keep the board going.....advertise your thing for a modest donation contact us
March.....2 donor/subscribers and no ads as i write (31/3/2009), it is gratifying to see our statistics improved with participation and page views on a 6 month high; more importantly i note that the core member stats show steady improvement at 180, and a combined feb and march total of approx 240.........
Feb........we average just under 5000 page views a day, while as i write (28/2/2009), we have a core member group of 150 visiting this month since my takeover 1st feb 2009, google ads revenue of $3.38, kind donations of GBP15 and buggerall from money sites - whose link days are thankfully numbered I think :) and our first small ads revenue of $5!
sry about all this but seriously, mrs stog has quite rightly said this considerable investment in time and money in the fibsboard must work! and that we must drag the board into the black, and quickly, as we can't afford to subsidise it. We need 3 or 4 donations a month from the core group, and an ad or 2 each month, consistently over the year, to break even and for us to consider continuing the board further than the 2 years we have allocated for.....
****** dec 2011 update - we have had 5000 members (now pruned to <2000) from over 150 countries and are approaching 6000 page views a day.
we have had 13 VIP Donors this year -- thx all ...but we will still need donors for the new year -- our 10th year anniversary!
