Subsux needs your help

Postby ratch » Wed Mar 15, 2017 2:16 pm

Hi Everyone,
For over 10 years this site has informed and helped thousands of people. I have always turned away advertisers and paid out of pocket to keep things going. With the exception of some small donations.. Well lately my pockets have been pretty empty, and once again the hosting fees and IP renewal are due. This site is also long overdue for an update (the donate button has been busted for almost 4 years..if you ever tried to try to click it.) ..Anyhow I hate asking, I was always turned off by pay sites and I think information should always be free. But getting that info out costs money and I need everyone's help to keep doing that. If we get enough donations I want to get a Subsux AP so we don't have to adjust the screen when using our smartphones and tablets which were barely invented when this site was started. Anyhow please give what you can..it is for a really good cause. If the site has helped you in even the smallest way, Your help will continue to do that for others. We need a update to 2017 and all the addicts who continue to come here to a judgement free zone.

My PayPal account is: Hrratchet@yahoo.com
(it is only used for this site)

Thanks to everyone,
Ratch

Not really sure how to do it without PayPal. It's how I pay the hosting/ IP registration.

This thread is a copy from General. I just want to thank those that have donated so far. And let everyone know we still have a long way to go for the mobile version. Thanks again.

Once again, thank you so much for your hard earned dollars....even ten bucks helps. 8-)

If you can't donate now....please help when you can. Remember all those asapca commercials on tv. When you cried? Think of this place the same way....mop the sweat off and go to PayPal. Every little bit helps. Cash in that jug of pennies, the Feds want them back anyways. :mrgreen: :banana:

Hey, did you guys notice that the forum isn't updating properly on browsers? I'll post something but it won't reflect on the main board. I have to go into the thread to see if the topic was updated. This is happening on work pc/home pc/iphone. It looks like threads aren't updating but they actually are. Weird. Maybe it's just me! I'm tarted. :wired: Love you guys.




The board is being wonky.....this is why we've ben begging for money. It needs updating....it may be the end soon. I hope not....we've had issues before and ratch got it straightened out. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Be very careful about your PMs. It's a good idea to clean out your inbox and sent folders if you worry about privacy issues.

I don't keep up with this site as much as I should. Of course I am willing to help out. Just to be sure the need still exhists, let me know if you still need some monetary support. Of course I know you are 100% dedicated but things change and I want to be sure. Let me know what's up. Saying your work here is important is a huge understatement and I personally have benefited from it. Anyway, let me know. I have no idea what the financial aspects of running a site looks like. But if the need is still there then so am I.

I am logged in as myself (not as another user) so is this site fixed now?

DD....ratch stabilized the site but we are still working with an IT guy to actually do the update....so the donate button is still fucked up and if you check ratches first post on this thread, he tells you how to send money. He has paid for the domain for another year but is now saving money to get a mobile phone friendly app. This is a major expense....upwards of a couple thousand I believe he said. So many peeps are using tablets and phones so he considers it a need instead of a want.

Thanks for asking!

When the time comes for the changes, we will try to do a big "heads-up" so everyone can be on the same page.

Yes, we take PayPal. If you go to the PayPal page....put in ratch's email.

https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/s ... lsrc=aw.ds

hrratchet@ yahoo.com

And follow the prompts. Sorry for that long link but that's what it is to get to the page.
