*** Forum fundraiser 2022 [£502.99 / £500.00 raised] ***

Post by orudge »

As regular visitors will know, these forums are run on a voluntary basis, funded partially by advertising, but mostly by your very generous donations. While donations are accepted all year, I like to post this topic once a year to try to get enough donations to run the site for the upcoming year.

The forums are still busy with quite a number of visitors, but advertising revenue is down, so we are aiming for £500 of donations again (around US $675, or €600), to help cover as much of the expense of running the forums as possible. Your generosity is hugely appreciated - without your help, the forums may not exist today. If you could spare even just a few pounds, dollars, euros, or whatever currency you use, to help the forums, it will be a great help.

Instead of a single large donation, you may wish to consider sending a regular monthly donation, if this is something you can afford. Hosting for the forums is paid monthly, so this can help to spread things around a bit. If you'd be interested in donating like this, please let me know.

You can find the donation page here. Donations can be taken by PayPal (including credit/debit card payments - you don't need a PayPal account) and direct bank transfer (including international bank transfers). Within the UK, I can also accept cheques and postal orders. If there is another way you would like to donate, let me know and we can figure something out. Your donations are very much appreciated.

Bank details

UK: Account number 75798685, sort code 23-14-70 (UK payments only)
US: Please send me a PM for details
EUR: IBAN BE65 9670 3187 7596, BIC TRWIBEB1XXX (payments from the Eurozone only)

Please include some kind of reference to TT-Forums (e.g. "TTF") when making a payment. For bank transfers from any other country, please contact me for details.

If you don't want to, or can't, send a monetary donation, you can use our Amazon affiliate links when you shop at Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com or Amazon.ca. Again, the donations page here explains that.

Please note that donations to OpenTTD are NOT donations for the forums; the forums and OpenTTD are unconnected (although I process donations for both, they are held and recorded separately). To donate to the forums, please use this link, not the link on the OpenTTD web site.

Thank you all for your support. Please let me know if you have any questions. (This announcement will be removed in the future.)

CURRENT TOTAL DONATED: £502.99 / £500.00 (100%)

I have problem with Paypal links (they refuse to process "from my country", which I suspect is the result of some Chinese meddling), and Paypal charges a rather hefty fee for small amount donations, that I found a straight £100 is more cost effective.

Therefore, here you go, £100. Please comment if you cannot receive it.

(Meanwhile, I encourage you guys donate for Ukraine, a poor country under the unjust wrath of a dictatorial tyranny)

I donated 12 times last year. I'll donate 12 times this year, too. Why? Because block signals rule. Long live the block signals.

Hmm, PayPal must have broken something. :( I’ll check and fix tomorrow. Thanks for pointing this out!
