As you're all probably aware IPB4 is a fucking disaster. A disaster I now regret walking into. Now, instead of trying to fix Invision's mess, which we shouldn't have to, Soti (Spanner to eveyone else - yeah, I've got a habit of knowing members by their old names instead of their newer ones - not my fault I've been in this community for over 1 and half decades) and I chewed the fat about a week or so ago. The result of that discussion was moving from the clusterfuck that IPB4 is to something far more stable, and the destination chosen was XenForo. Now, at the moment I don't have the cash available to pay for a XenForo licence, and I won't have it until sometime in late March or early April. But, I've heard along the grape vine that some of you would be willing to donate cash towards getting a XenForo licence sooner, rather than later. Who could you blame you? I seriously couldn't. I've had enough of IPB4 myself, and have done since way before upgrading to 184.108.40.206. Ask Soti, I told him I was ready to throw in the towel and fuck off a few weeks back, and all because of the nightmare that IPB has become. IPB3 had it's problems, but it was a damn sight easier to work with. Anyway, I've set up a new PayPal account for those who wish to make a donation towards a XenForo licence - which costs US$140 (~US$170 when VAT and PayPal fees are factored in - see next paragraph for explanation). The e-mail address to send your donation to via PayPal is:- firstname.lastname@example.org. This isn't my own personal PayPal account, and the account will be used solely for paying XenForo. Any excess cash will then be either refunded (with refunds being proportionate to the amount donated), or kept for SHC prize purposes. Which ever donators prefer. I will be kicking in the 50 bucks that would be going to Invision for the licence renewal fee that's due in a matter of weeks, a fee they will no longer be getting. I should stress that the PayPal account is a UK account, as PayPal now require a credit/debit card and billing address upfront. I haven't created a PayPal account in about 10 years, so I wasn't aware of this requirement, and so I had to create a UK account, seeing as I'm UK resident afterall. I was hoping to create a US account to avoid paying the 20% VAT (sales tax) that XenForo has to charge all EU residents, and to also avoid PayPal's self-imposed exchange rates that benefit them, which in turn is a hidden PayPal fee. So, if you wish to donate to the XenForo licence fund, then feel free to do so. And, please include your forum account name in the optional message box when sending your donation. Cheers.
