Thread: 2012 Server Funds Donation Drive / Begging

  1. #1

    Default 2012 Server Funds Donation Drive / Begging

    Every year ITIL asks for donations from its members to pay the server hosting bill. This year, the renewal is in August but as everyone knows money is tight, I'm starting the request for donations quite early.

    The server costs £220 GBP ($345 USD) a year. We have reduced this cost over the years from around $480.

    I'll throw $45 into the pot to get it started and give us a round number of $300. Any shortfall come August will also be covered by me (but the less the better! ).

    Even if you have donated before, it would be highly appreciated if you would donate again.

    To donate, please go to ITIL JET Programme / Japan Forum - Donation System

    By donating, you keep the site alive as well as get a few extra bonuses (listed at the bottom of the donation page).

    As always, thank you to all who donate and help keep the site online, especially for the new applicants who use the site to get information from the oldies


    Target (August 2012): $345
    Donated so far (30 / May): $295
    Shortfall: $50

    Just make it so that if you want to stay in VIP you have to donate something. Anything. Even a single dollar. If every member did that you'd be laughing.

    And I'll get onto it just as soon as I remember to get the better half to show me how to use paypal. Again.

    ....actually, Wicket`s idea isn`t too bad. But, I donated twice already and I only was able to view the VIP forums after the second time (/didn`t get a badge until the second time either). Is there a min donation to view VIP?

    There's no minimum donation to become a VIP. I also see you have 2 icons now. At a guess, there may have been a problem with the ithinkimlost.com email system at the time of your first donation so I wouldnt have known about the donation until I logged into paypal which may have delayed things.

    The "11/March" is confusing. I was assuming the $200 was as of that date.

    If I, a noob who joined at the wrong time of year to be merely scrounging for SOP tips can donate, so can some of you scumbags.

    I pretty much credit my shortlist to this site. I'm on a server's budget but I spared what I could. I encourage any others on this site who were shortlisted to donate so that people can continue to have this resource in the future.
