donations to the forum
« on: June 14, 2009, 08:39:04 PM »
hey guys, i know its not required and there is no set fee for being a member here, but i think every once in awhile we should make a donation to Wal for all his work to keep this forum going. i know we all forget sometimes but its because of Wal that we have such an active forum. the best one i have ever been a part of. i know because of this forum, i have had several favors done for me,  and has because of the  knowledge of members here, helped me solve tons of problems restoring these old bikes. i seriously doubt that anyone that is a member here has not helped them as well. if it was not for this board can you imagine how many of these v4's that would be in the boneyard???? so on that note, if anyone can spare few bucks here and there, anty up some cash for Wal to keep this forum alive. thumbs up to Wal!!!!!!!!!!!!  :thumb :thumb here is his paypal addy. wshults@v4hondabbs.com if you don't have paypal, you could send a check to

Give it up ya cheap barstards.  ;)  Unless you are among the unemployed, then we'll let you slide.

  Maybe the point needs to be made that it ain't to pay Wal for his time, it is to pay the server fees. Now if Wally chooses to buy a 6 pack of the cheap stuff every now and then far be it from me to bitch. Hell, he's a school teacher. He's rolling in it.  :pot:

Will send a donation this week. Being relatively new here, I've found everyone both friendly and helpful. I look forward to reaping the membership benefits in the future and offering any help that I can also.

Everyone except for that Billy guy.  He's bad news.    ;D





Seriously though, I'll be sending a donation to Wal shortly.  After all, I get more entertainment here than anywhere else on the web.  Except for Google News, maybe.

Hell... All I have to say is that as much time as I spend on here, I should be paying rent!!!  Since I became a Magnaholic, I am frequenting this board at least an hour or two each day... God I'm sick...

Sending my donation this week!

Server fees are a monthly thang. So once a quarter or so wouldn't be too often. Sent.   :beer:

I have been running a hi-fi enthusiast forum for about 5 years.  It is alot of work... 

Best thing I ever did was to get Google Adsense on the site.  People click on the ads and I get paid... :beer:

I get about 45 dollars a month from Adsense.. give or take..  this pays for all my hosting fees and software upgrades...    Of course I have to declare this as income, report it to the IRS, etc., but that's OK...

Wal, you should look into this....   

donation is on the way.

Will send this week. Any idea what the average contribution should be? I don't want to offend if I only send $5 or $10 bucks.
Thanks

I have never given WAL a cent......
However, everytime I send a small part to someone, I eat the shipping and require them to send a donation to WAL. I hope he has received MANY donations from me as I send MANY parts out.

The first post under the donations section gives the paypal addy but says "I can not take a Credit Card funded payment".  That doesn't make sense to me so I posted a question to that but it went unanswered.  Maybe we could clarify that thread? I"ll throw a few bucks at it anyway though...

I got 8 payments in my inbox when I came home... I figured something was up  :beer:  Found the thread - thanks guys!!!

As far as the no credit cards - I have a free account on Paypal and it doesn't let me that CC funded payments.  I'm not in business or anything, so I don't see a need to upgrade (and pay Paypal fees!).  

I don't advertise or make regular pleas for donations.  I figure that this is something that I love to do, and I am giving back to the community that helped me IMMENSELY over the years!!!  Some years I've been ahead and some years I've been behind; I have NO complaints or ambitions!  

Not including this go-round, I have had about 10 people send me money this year.  BillyC has sent 3 times!!!  I try to tell him to stop, but he won't listen.  He is consistently the most regular contributor keeping us alive.  I can't thank Billy enough - we should ALL thank Billy!!!!  Don't give him a big head though.

BTW - I'm on red alert for the baby girl.  She's due any time now :-)

I'll esplain it as I remember it. If your paypal is setup for bank transfers only then there is no fee (or the fee is minimal) when recieving bank transfers. Once you set it up to take credit card payments the fee to recieve goes up for payments on everything recieved by credit card or bank transfers. That's also why you'll see some have 2 paypal accounts. Why pay extra fees if not needed.

HTH,
Big Al

I reckon I could help a little too......being just a newbie and all. So I will hold-off on the dishwasher/partswasher thing a little longer, you can get a 6 pack of your favorite and get the newbie that's due in your life something too.
Congratulations for when the baby girl arrives!

Thanks for all you do for all of us......

If you haven't picked out a name for her yet,
I think Boogity has a nice ring to it.


Enjoy that kid, Wal. They're awesome.
Heck, mine can even fly.
It's a bird!  It's a plane!   No, it's a little Boogity kid!

the flight looks ok, but the landing gear is questionable.  I think it will be a bumpy stop; water landings only!

had me going for a sec...  :lol8:

I haven't used Paypal in quite a while, and now it seems that they take a cut no matter what!  I kept the "free" personal account for 10 years avoiding fees, but now everything except bank transfers get a fee!  Greedy SOB's!  Must be since eBay bought em out that they are getting uppity. 

THANKS TO THE GUYS THAT SENT SINCE MY LAST THANK YOU!!!!
