Donations To GAM *Now taking Postal Donations*
« on: April 28, 2007, 07:29:25 AM »
14th March 2010
Since im back in the UK and setting up bank and postal accounts for myself i can now take donations by post. You MUST stick coins to a piece of card/paper, minimum il take is 2 pound 50 so i can gather it up and send in bulk to the account. If its a note, then wrap it up in a piece of paper. PM Hayley for address details for postal donations.


Hi

For our first 2 years that we were online for, we felt the need not to ask members for donations.

We grow constantly each day and this meant we could no longer use shared hosting and had to buy a more expensive "dedicated" server, and the bills now rise due to the forum increasing in traffic and members. Sadly, we now have to ask members for donations so we can continue to meet our bandwidth & hosting costs, and keep Girls Aloud Media running for the enjoyment of everyone.

We do not run any adverts on the forum like other forums do, as i dont like them and they get in the way. But to do this, we need donations or i will have to add adverts in the future.

If you have a couple of euros, pounds, dollars to spare, we would appreciate any donations, big or small, it all adds to keep us running. A minimum amount is $4 as i think this is a sufficient enough for what you get in return. Plus paypal can be greedy and take some away.

My paypal email is  hayley_deakin@hotmail.com


What You Get In Return

In return for your generosity:

  • Donators will be moved to a Donator's Usergroup.
  • They will have a Blue username on the forum, so they can stand out and be proud of donating to the forum.

  • Donators will be able to see under hidden links without the need of replying!

  • Theres also a secret donator forum, where they can chat and share to other donators, what they dont want seeing in public.
  • Ability to have a 'yourusername@girlsaloudmedia.com' email address! cant do GAM emails until dave is back but can do NRUK and nadinecoylefan ones

  • Able to download and share the latest movies, albums, singles and tv shows
  • Able to request HQ or MQ pictures from various agencys of another artist
  • Have login access to various picture outlets
  • Able to request pictures untagged if tagged by me on the main forum
  • Ability to add and change your custom title (under your username)
The above list can be change at anytime

You wont be moved into the Donator group until we check you are the right user that has donated.

Our paypal email is hayley_deakin@hotmail.com


A minimum amount is $4 as i think this is a sufficient enough for what you get in return. Plus paypal can be greedy and take some away.

If your paypal email is different to your username on here, please PM me with your paypal email so we can confirm you sent a donation. Only then will you be moved into the Donator group.


Thanks again,

Hayley


Girls Aloud Media, Administrator

Feel free to talk in this topic if you need any help on donating, or if you want to let us know you have donated.



P.S You money soley goes to the costs of this forum and i can provide invoice's as proof if needed, this includes:

Our new Dedicated Server for the forum - $50 a month
AloudSound.net Server - $76 a month (this has gone up due to traffic we are getting) Now on a free server with adverts to keep it online.

FileFactory Premium (to keep media files online forever) - $79 every year

Photo Agency Accounts - To get them lovely HQ pictures (especially first!) costs money :(

Domain name extentions - $10 a year each (we have a few domain names)

A little goes to forum competition prizes, although mainly a lot of members make competitions and use their own money. If its a competition i do, it is from my money unless i need a little help.
Any surplus just helps for future months, and an emergency fund.

Dave only recently maybe the last month agree on accepting donations through post. Its not an option we would like, and im sure dave doesnt want to give his address to many people, but if you really cant donate by paypal, then its best to pm dave about it  :) He handles all the monies, im rubbish at 'book keeping'  :lol:

I wish I could donate to the forum but my parents wont let me  :( I wish I could. I am going to beg my dad tomorrow because think he has paypal. One question: If we only donate for one month do we loose the blue username and donater area and all the other stuff when that month has finished?

I dont think so, because others havent donated this month and they still have their blue name
