This thread is to help shed some light on how and where does the money go to help manage the forum.
First and foremost the forum as it is right now with the ads and the set url is free. And the contribution is purely to make the forum much more personalized to our needs. Like getting rid of the ad banners, storage and a personalized url.
For starters to get the ball rolling i will purchase the domain name for one year, and a ad ban for the first 3 months.
To donate / contribute you can scroll right to the bottom of the forum and click the contribution tab. There you just follow the simple instructions on purchasing forum credits. The forum management does not gain any of your donations as the transaction is between you(the contributor) and the forum company www.forumms.net
which sells the forum credits, once the purchase is made the credits will then be used by the forum management to purchase upgrades for this forum.
