    No worries Marlin! We'll take the notification down probably in another week, but donations are always open, year round If you go to the forum home page and scroll down to the bottom the donation button is always down there now - thanks to Malinghi's super skills!

    I haven't had any more donations come in after the last post, so still the same. Good news is that the payment isn't due till June so we have some time

    We should charge for name changes.

    The exchange rate is not that good on my side, but I could afford to donate a bit more.

    I thought we already did?
    Though, yeah, we'd be raking it in if we charged for first-time changes, I don't think it'd go down too well :P

    Fundraiser. Excellent idea! How much would need to be raised to get an actual mobile service other than tapatalk? I think that would be a much wanted and worthwile investment.

    2nd time name changes are any donation over $1 or they have to greet 20 new users. Maybe we should start charging more for 2nd name changes, I dunno.. what do you guys think?

    It's $200 for the mobile app. And we just put down $80 out of pocket (not part of the fundraiser) to fix a big issue, and still need to raise $65 just to cover hosting this upcoming year. Plus we actually make money from the Tapatalk ads that helps support the site- all the money we've earned from that is already counted in the fundraiser, plus any money we had leftover from last year's donations, btw.

    Is there any reason why people don't like Tapatalk? I've never had an issue with it.

    I was fine with taptalk until it updated and changed where all the buttons were and now I find I have a lot of trouble finding functions I can easily locate on the mobile site. Obviously it has benifits like being able to post pictures and (I don't know if this is an issue everyone has on their phone or just me) when I use the real site on my phone it doesn't display threads properly unless I'm in landscape. Overall though I just like the familiarity of the mobile site.

    Tapatalk was great until the update, I deleted it this morning

    I actually find the new Tapatalk easier but it can be tricky at first. Maybe I'll take some screen shots and post a tutorial.

    Great news! We raised enough to pay this year's hosting fee! The invoice for the upcoming year came today, so it's all paid off and taken care of for another year THANK YOU soooo much everyone! It really means a lot to us that you donate to help cover the costs of the site!

    I know the fundraiser is over but I went ahead and donated just now anyway. After all the help, tutorials and advice that I've gotten from MerNetwork to successfully make my own tail, I'd be remiss in not paying it back! XD Thanks for being awesome!
