    I have just diverted some US dollars from the "baby's medicine fund" to go to this site. I appreciate the new changes and hope to learn how to use them. :confused: jd

    I also sent some US dollars through PayPal. Little price to pay for the "solid" information on this site.

    How long does it take for the 'Site Contributor' banner to show up by your name. I contributed to the site on 3/3/2016. I really enjoy this site.

    Just sent my annual $20 in. I still see a lot of frequent posters who don't donate. Everyone to themselves but would be nice to see more.

    I set up a recurring donation yesterday. After many years of looking around I figured it is worth keeping this vast knowledge base going for a few more.
    ETA I guess it takes a while to show you are a contributor.

    We want to thank all the folks who have donated. There is no direct data connection between PayPal and this forum. All "contributor" status changes have to be made manually by comparing PayPal activity with Forum member records. That's why it's important to list your Forum name in a Paypal note. With respect to donations (regular or recurring), we ask that a minimum of $20.00 be received before the "Site Contributor" status is conferred.

    I sent another donation via PayPal last week to be above the amount needed to be a contributor. Thanks for the site.

    Just mailed a donation today. This is a very valuable site for me. I visit every day unless I am off to a match. I would like to see more users contribute, especially those that use the classifieds.

    I did a donation on June 22, but have not seen the Site Contributor banner appear on my name. How long does this usually take?

    Paul and his helpers are busting their butts keeping this site up and running.Every thread must be watched to be sure there are no rule violations is just one of the necessary tasks. Give them some time and be happy in knowing that you are one of the GOOD GUYS. IMHO,Tom.

    Just put my donation in as well, had some sales from the forum here in the past week and figured you guys should share in the proceeds.

    Thanks for everything!

    I made a paypal donation but there was no area to leave a note for my forum name. Banner isn't shown on my name yet.
    Thanks for all you do!
    Great site

    Another donation headed your way. Thanks for all your hard work creating and running this site. Not many know how difficult and time consuming a process it is running a website. HTML may is a whole other language.
