PDA

View Full Version : Small Fundraiser Needed, Please Read!



AB
9th November 2010, 11:03 AM
Hi All, never thought we would have to do this but we are in need of some small funds to purchase something for the forum.

I need to purchase another domain name (a domain name is a website name for example: nissanpatrol.com.au).

Something may happen one day and I want to make sure that if that day ever comes this forum is protected for the future. By purchasing another domain name this will ensure that the future of this site will be ok and will not ever be shut down.


This name has been offered to me at $500 (good cheap price) which is a lot of money for me at the moment and without getting any return I am hoping to raise a small amount of money to purchase this name.

Once I have got the name I will let you all know more about this story but I want to be careful what I publish on here before the transaction is complete...lol

Anyways, I can put in $200 and hoping to raise $300 from members to help out.

Suggested donation is $10 or $15, so we only need 20 or 30 members to help out and then I'm done.

I really appreciate any help guys and girls and I never wanted to ask for any money but by getting this name it will be a huge help to the community here.

All I can offer in return if you want to donate is a custom user title under your name if you would like. If you do donate money, please put your username on the details and email me your desired custom user title and your username.

If you cannot donate any money due to personal reasons then I totally understand and ask that you contribute to the forum in other ways such as adding more information and photos.

My bank details are below and again, million thank you's to everyone's involvement in the entire forum to date regardless if you donate or not, great work!!!:bananadancing:

Hi Guys
Lets get behind AB as I dont think it is fair that he puts in $200. Even if we raise more than the $500 that money could be set aside for some other purpose

My thinking exactly Bob & we will have to be a bit pushy here cos AB can be a bit stubborn but we have he's acc number so pore it on ppl we are all worth it me thinks.

You may not realise just how much enjoyment you have created with this forum Andy. This site is bloody unreal and what little we can give is nothing compared to the work you have put in already. Everyone who puts money in (no matter how much) is obviously showing their gratitude to the work you have done and the product you have produced.

Onya mate.

This site is many things; a source of information, a social network,a voice in the 4WD community (political, but true!), a means of organizing gatherings, an escape from the crap we all have in our lives...this forum is so many great things and it is all for FREE!!!!! I don't think anyone on this forum would begrudge a small donation to help maintain this online FAMILY. Come on guys....time to give back!

Thanks for bringing this up Ross, I wanted to & had written up a whole post last night but decided not to post it because, I knowing Andy the way I do felt he might be a bit embarrassed by it but bugger it, it needs to be said & your right on the money to Ross as I have had many chats about this very subject & he has rejected it "EVERY TIME".

I am not just a moderator for Andy, he is also my friend & I can tell you all here & now he is a proud man with a great deal of integrity who is very passionate about this forum & has founded the entire project himself right from the beginning.

This fundraiser will have been nothing more than an effort to keep this forum alive & kicking for many good time to come so to all who wish to show there support please do so because The man behind the name is a fighter & will not let us down I'll stake my Patrol on it.

Well thank you to all of your support and donations for this fundraiser and I really appreciate your help!

I didn't have to fork out anywhere near as much as I originally thought so thanks again.

I can now go into more detail about this fundraiser.

Having the word Nissan in our domain name will/may cause problems down the track if our friends from Nissan Motors want this name one day and I do not have millions of dollars to fight anything in court as what is happening with this guy here (http://www.digest.com/Big_Story.php).

So, to protect this forum we needed another domain name incase that happens to us one day.

The domain name we have purchased is www.patrol.com.au (http://www.patrol.com.au). This is a great name to transfer over to if something happens and if that did happen one day I would have to rush around trying to find a name to suit the forum and would end up buying something like patrolforum123 or patrol_forum, etc which are very poxy names.

So thank you to everyone involved and for your generous donations.

If you are benefiting from this forum and would like to still donate you are more than welcome to. The ongoing costs of keeping up with the bills and memory usage is increasing every month so by all means you are more than welcome to still donate. All donations will be put back into the forum.

Cheers

Andy

I've already suggested to Andy about charging a fee, but the stubborn man will have no part of it..... I think an annual fee is more than reasonable and i for one would happy to 2 pay it ( and i know all of the regular members would 2 ). I also think only with a membership should you get access to the manuals, maybe some other sort of goodies down the track ( like a free nissanpatrol.com.au stickers as an example ). But that's just my two cents worth :).
I have his bank details now so i can pay an annual membership and he cant stop me *LMAO*

Great stuff AB!

I'm wrapt you finally got to secure that domain name and protect the future of not only the best Patrol forum on the internet, but YOUR forum. You have used your brain, utilised the people around you and secured something fantastic that is used and enjoyed by ALL OF US.

I agree with Todd and Doggy about annual membership and "members only" parts of the forum. However you know the pros and cons of how this may affect the forum (limiting your accessibility to the general public or maybe Google ratings) by charging for it, so I think you should just do what you think is best for the forum. But if it's only humility that stops you asking for money every year then I think this fundraiser has shown you that the people who make this forum great don't care about a small fee and are more than willing to help out in a small way.

Anyway mate, great work, you've done a brilliant job.

Really appreciate the suggstion guys but we have built a great bunch of people and you know what...I just love seeing new members come on board, read a few posts and see how friendly this forum is and just freely join in on all of the conversations without any hesitation of "being scared to join a niche group or clicky gang, etc" and be welcomed with open arms...

There is one criteria though...You have to join in the convos, have a laugh and say whatever is on your mind....Even if your wrong, It's all good, no one here or anywhere is an expert and we all learn off eachother so we encourage to have a shot at the answers to questions.

I went off track a bit, No membership fee as I want this to grow to a massive community of good, honest, friendly people with knowledge and humour and eventually a huge network of good people willing to help people out because they want to!

Finly Owner
19th November 2010, 11:25 PM
I have a suggestion that just might work. But, it may take Andy and Todd to nut it out. Have a paypal donation link, that you can voluntarily donate as you wish. I'm sure you can link paypal accounts to forums. Paypal can now be used as a bpay type payment, so should be able to use it here.

Otherwise have a Make Donation tab/link that brings up account details to pay to.

This way it's not a membership fee, and those who love this place can rop some funds when flush with some xtra funds.

I have a suggestion that just might work. But, it may take Andy and Todd to nut it out. Have a paypal donation link, that you can voluntarily donate as you wish. I'm sure you can link paypal accounts to forums. Paypal can now be used as a bpay type payment, so should be able to use it here.

Otherwise have a Make Donation tab/link that brings up account details to pay to.

This way it's not a membership fee, and those who love this place can rop some funds when flush with some xtra funds.

Tim

Honestly Tim, thats what should be done but I am one of those people that just hate's taking money from anyone (especially people that we havent met before) unless I have put in a days labour in whatever task.

I just feel guilty to be even talking about this sort of thing.

Old school attitude bought up by an old school father to build your own life and don't ask for charity.

But...That is a good idea for anyone who wants to help out for sure!!!!!

So do I need to plead to Todd and the Mods to go ahead and get something like this added?

OR

Are you going to work it out with Todd and Chops help?

I understand the teachings, but it's not worth going backwards in your personal finances.

I very much understand your point Andy, but as Tim said it's not worth going backwards in your personal finances.

I'm not a fan of paypal as they take a cut of the money, but it can be done. A button that displays the bsb and account number is the way to go :)

Weekend drinking, about $35.00 for a bottle of Jim Beam and a few bottles of coke
During the week, about $20.00 for a 6 pack of Jim Beam and coke

Total $55.00

But i only donated $25 bucks, because i am an alcoholic and couldn't go without :trink13::trink13::trink13::trink13::trink13::trin k13::trink13::trink13::trink13::trink13::trink13:: trink13::trink13::trink13::trink13:

I will be throwing it straight back to you if you put any money in my account mate.

Hi mate, there are always monthly bills to pay for the running costs and hosting of the forum and manuals, etc so It's entirely up to you.

I haven't approached Nissan about it, I'm not sure how or what they could offer, I should speak to them one day though I agree.

I would like to see good companies that we use to get into sponsorships such as ARB, TJM, etc down the road though.
