Donating to RAWK
« on: December 10, 2022, 08:02:41 am »
I may be a bit thick but I can't find the donate to RAWk page.

I've just tried to scan the main page and look at some other pages but can't find the donate link.

Please try to make it easier with a donate button on the home page somewhere

I just came across it in the Boozer page.

I would suggest making it way more visible. Even looking for it, it is really hard to find.

Anyways, thanks for keeping the site to a good standard and troll free (mostly).

Even then you have to go back to the first page of the thread to see the donate link.

I think it needs to be way easier to get to the donate link and also to see that the site can take donations much easier.

John C has been, for the last few years, the unofficial guardian of all donations.

Claire has been the de factor architect of the site.

Your feedback raises a great point - donate now button now!

I'm going to add a little clause in my will......

Sounds like I have a holiday a year on the site :)
Years and years ago I received money and posted it to Ben's house but everyone seems to trust paypal now and it goes direct to Bob Kurac (Simon).
All donations are grateful because the site really wouldn't exist without contributions.
Thanks all.

I’d agree it needs to be easier and more transparent to donate. I’ve made two donations this year via PayPal but I’m still not sure how I found how to donate and who actually ended up with the donation. ;D

Maybe a link in the top right with the ‘unread posts’ and ‘my messages’.

Or a a big pop up that appears every 15 seconds getting more and more threatening each time.

I donated 50 quid a month or so ago but not sure if it was received by Bob. I did pm him but I guess he doesn't check in all that much these days?

Thanks for that mate, very kind. It will be getting to him but he rarely logs in. I'm sure he'll get back to you in due course.

Thanks again.

Reader since 2005. Just embarrassed that my stupid arse had somehow missed the donate links. Anything other than paypal lads? Regulations in my country make Paypal a right pain in the bollocks.

That is probably a good point. There are so many easy mechanisms to pay now. I would suggest a dedicated RAWK donations page somewhere that has all the payment mechanisms

paypal
cashapp
zelle
venmo
whatever else you can do to from one account to another direct

Paypal is a total pain in the arse and you lose 3% every single time. Cashapp has no fees but hold on to your cash for two days before you can pull it out. Which is fine for me as you get to keep 100% of the money.

Almost embarrassed to have not donated before - this site has done so much for not just me but also the wider community and this is long overdue
