Hello again!

As you have probably seen, we have added a Donation button to the bottom of the site, meaning we are from now on accepting donations made by members.

The money you donate will not be transferred to any bank account of any kind, it will stay on TON's PayPal and will solely be used to pay our monthly fees for ZetaBoards Premuim, future contest prizes and so on.
Your donations will only be used towards benefits for The Ocarina Network and its community, meaning YOU!

Please understand that TON grew a lot lately and it is simply impossible for Sam and I to keep the board up and running without your help.
We are not forcing you to donate of course but every single dollar counts and will ensure that you will be able to enjoy TON and all the features you have right now to their full extent.

If you would like to make a donation, click on the banner at the bottom of this post or use the Donate button which can be found in the footer of every page.
We count on you and thank you again for your continuous support!

— Sam (kissing), Jack (Elven Spellmaker) and Stephen (Stephen Bobchin)

Current Donations Level: $228.34 USD
(5th November 2012 by Elven Spellmaker)

What kind of money does it take to keep the board up and running? (I'm just curious.)

As you can imagine, Sam and I are just poor students. :lmao:
It's about $10 per month for now. Depending on the success and how much money we will be able to receive per month, we may consider more outputs like an upgrade of the shoutbox that will enable users to create accounts for it and so on.
And, as I already mentioned, the money will also be used towards our next (and all other future) TONtest so we can supply you guys with brand new ocarinas as prizes.

Okay, cool. Good to know. It makes it kinda satisfying for someone to donate and be able to say, "I've helped TON to stay afloat for this month!" :TON:

$10 a month? That's a synch, sure, I'll donate some.

I'm sure we can more than cover it, all of us together.
