    Default Donate to Keep the Site Ad Free-And Vibrant

    Hopefully you have noticed the donation widget at the top of pages throughout the site.


    Members here make this the most valuable, informative and enjoyably Stephen King discussion forum on the planet.


    There are costs associated with running the site. Every year we ask for donations to offset these costs.


    Our goal this year is to raise $2,400


    I would hope that we provide $6.60 in entertainment and information per day to the Stephen King collecting community


    If you wish to skip the PP and their fees, you can donate F&F directly to: crownandcola@aol.com


    (That is my wife's PP address-thus Dolores is the recipient name).





    Every person who donates $10 will be entered into a drawing for a very cool surprise. Maximum of 10 entries per person.

    Just curious, when we donate using the link, do you get 100% or is paypal taking its 3% cut (or whatever it is). Or is the only way to avoid it is to directly use the F&F option to donate?
    Wanted:

    Yes, unless you use F&F PP gets their 3 bits. Personally, I donate via check/auto pay from my bank account. That way no one cuts in on the action. lol lol

    RF has been picking up the tab for this place ever since taking over from the previous regime. This little donation drive mitigates the burden some and, speaking for myself, it's the least we could do to help bear the load. For the record, in addition to the funds required to keep the site live, he dedicates a significant amount of his time and effort just to administer the site behind the scenes.

    Though in retrospect I probably am due some sort of refund in light of all the time I spend "banned" every year!!! lol lol Seriously though those that have ponied up are to be thanked and those that haven't should give serious consideration to what it would be like to NOT have this site available to them. I think the math breaks down to somewhere around $35-40 for every member annually to cover the entire nut for the servers, software, etc. RF can speak better to the math, but it seems like a very reasonable contribution by each member to make for all the fun & resources this site makes available to King & book collectors. Of course, this is just my personal opinion and thought process.

    Also, again JMHO, but I would hate for him to have to turn to alternative methods to raise the funds. Namely "Ads" and such that would clutter the site. JMHO, its up to each and every member to make the choice themselves.

    Probably because some people have lives outside of this forum? I think our staff jumped in rather promptly and efficiently given it was a weekend.

    Not for nothing, but where were you? lol lol lol

    It seems Banning does not get the user logged off the site. I have now deleted all offending spammers so they no longer appear.
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King
