Wh-what really? Dangit! Debit cards, too?

*grumbles* That's stupid. :nope:
They're providing a service, and they charge for it. :shrug:

It says the sender can pay the fee if they choose, but I don't know how that is done. :?

I put a bit into the pot, not too much, and with that pesky fee it'll be a little less... but I made a contribution of what I could for FREEDOM! (Way too much Scottish stuff recently...)

Ditto on the meter thing guys. Seriously. C'mon. :3

I'll prolly throw a bit in soon.

We cannot install meter scripts for technical reasons. All we could do is check our account every now and then and post our account balance somewhere. Or we could set a monthly goal and tell you guys how much is still needed, we could use the ticker for that.

As for the fees, either the sender or receiver has to pay them. The only fees there are are transaction fees which are lower than the fees you have to pay to PayPal for commercial use.

Can I ask why if we are donating to keep the site up have ads on the site? I thought ads were used for site funding :?
or is this mandatory via Zetaboards?
Also an update thing how much TON is off being periodically updated is a good idea.

They upgraded to the premium zetaboards, and its to help fund events and contests ect... if the adds were not on there then it gets even more expensive. Sam and Andy has all those details...

Should we make some kind of special "something" to put in your signature if you have contributed?

Different ones for different amounts?

I dont think different amounts should have different signature 'thingies'..that would encourage competition and one-upsmanship. A little badge or medal symbol with 'Proud TON donator' would be cool! :D
