hey all

the increasing costs of running this forum are catching up to me... i now have to find a new host for our image/file server because our current hosts are fucktards (got a bill for $610 US.. should be $30 US.. of course their 24-hour support line is not staffed 24-hours... now i have to sort this shit out)

anyway, if you feel you've enjoyed this forum, which is provided to you free of charge with no advertisements (nor do i sell your email addresses), then perhaps you'd consider donating

any amounts are welcome, i appreciate the thought. to those who'd like to donate but cant for whatever reason, i thank you for your kindness anyway.

my paypal email is paypal - AT - uer - DOT - ca (no dashes)

thanks for your goodwill!

update: donations are now accepted in cash! mail your donations to:

I have a friend who runs a server. I'll tell her about your problem. Not sure how much she charges. I'll PM you the link with how to contact her.

Well, right now I'm looking for a good host thats not too expensive, who can offer me a windows 2000 server (shared is ok) with 5gb or more of storage space, and at least 60-100 gb of monthly transfer.

I've found a couple online but I'm not sure how good they are.

Could you give me a mailing address to send some money because I don't want to risk having money transferred over the internet.

I don't have a mailing address I'd want to give out... the only option is getting a PO box which is even more money spent each month >.<

The internet is perfectly safe... most credit card companies have zero-liability fraud policies so you're ok.

i dont have a credit card can we send $ the same POB that is at the bottom of the screen? (infiltration POB 13, station E toronto, ontario M6H 4E1 canada)

Ohh, i have an idea...how bout you add a "photo gallery" or something like that to the site and the people who frequent the forum can post up donated artistic pics of UEing, copyright em, and make it so you cant click on the image and save it to the puter, and then people can buy them. the pic would have contact info of the person who took it and them they would buy the pic but send the $$ to Av's paypal acct.

it looks chaotic in writing but its smooth in my head...

No, UE'ing should be, and should stay largely non profit. I don't like the idea of selling images like that. Thou I suppose that enough pro. photographers do it.

But you may want to ask Ninj if you can use his PO box.
I think that Gnometoy's addy is pretty public too. You may want to ask him.

I might get a P.O Box if i need it... it costs $7 CDN a month, I can afford that.

And no, the PO box listed at the bottom is not mine.. that's Ninj's. I run the forums for him. If you visit www.uer.ca, you will see the forums from "my website".

Anyway, the idea with letting people upload custom image galleries is a future plan for Urban Exploration Resource.

The plan is that people can upload a custom gallery of images, text, and so on, and other people can view and comment on them.

Take 5 bucks Open up a bank acc. and give us the bank name,acc# and the branch/location #.
Then we just go to our own banks and deposit cash into it at no charge at all..
I have done this many many times and its very safe for on both ends.

Actually, it would probably be easier for me to just get a P.O Box, so i'll look into getting one of those today.

Well, I can't give any money, but if you put ads, I'll remove my ad-protection every once in a while to click them...

Actually, money orders wont work.

The best bet is to mail cash, or to mail a cheque made out to "cash".

Well Avatar I'm going to mail you a cheque, I know who you are, so I trust you. Could you let the forum know if you've received enough money or if you need more? Keep us all updated!

edit added later... also avatar, could you let everyone know the average amount donated, it may help people see that every dollar helps... thanks!

Sure!

Let's have a look at a little chart:

(see the top of this thread for the chart)

As you can see, my effort to recover the operating costs of the forum is short by about $975 CDN, and growing monthly. Don't get me wrong, I DO appreciate the donation I've received! It was very kind. Unfortunatly, it's not quite enough.
