You are exactly right - If your description is "Site supporter" then that is the key to being able to post in the forum.I should add that i tried logging out and back in and that made no difference. Is it to do with where the donation is made? I made mine to 'site donation' instead of 'machine donation'. Does that matter?
I see that it has converted into a 'site supporter' descriptor so i was hoping it would work.
Might be worth considering a minimum donation, or a two tier system like Pinside.You know - thats a fair point. Let me think on how i can make that easier
My thought process. I suspect it will have to be manual, however investigating today as to the "best" options. But i do agree - those that donate a significant amount should be acknowledged....Might be worth considering a minimum donation, or a two tier system like Pinside.
e.g. £10 and above gets you the marketplace posting access for 12 months, less than that is just a regular donation - perhaps with a perk of some kind. And if you donate over £X you get longer (lifetime?) access.
i also have donated several times but dont sell my pins directly on here so im in the same boatI have been a member from day one and given 100's of pounds to the site in donations but because i have not sold a machine in a while i now cant post in the machines for sale thread.
wouldn’t this have been much better sent in a pm rather than a public post@Paul what happens with the excess donations after the running costs of the forum?
Is the forum ran on a non profit basis and any excess donations given to charity... Or is it ran as a business and the excess donations after running costs pocketed?
Apologises if this information is posted elsewhere, must have missed it?
Don't feed the Trolls Chris they rely on causing a reaction just ignore it and they go awaywouldn’t this have been much better sent in a pm rather than a public post
I don’t see any site donations from tilt so no need to get your knickers in a twist about where your money is going
