Thanks for the reminder, here is the monthly update on forum finances.

 

Last months FundRazr overshot the £100 target and we reached £117.00, thanks to all who donated and those who tried to donate but were thwarted by the paypal goblins, it is very much appreciated.

 

Costs this month have been a total of £83.00 for the hosting and backups. The forum software renewal for the next 6 months was £25.93. Fundrazr admin costs and paypal processing fees were a further £11.70.

 

Combined, the costs were £120.63

 

The current balance in the account is therefore +£351.22

 

As before, we'll keep this as a reserve in case of unexpected costs, and open a new Fundrazr campaign to cover the costs for the next month. The target will be £100 to cover Fundrazr fees, hosting and backups. The forum licence software is renewed through to May 2018 now, so no costs on the horizon for now.

 

The link to the new FundRazr page can be found HERE

 

Again, all donations are very much appreciated.

 

I followed up with FR support about the problem donations and they pointed the finger of blame at PayPal as the processor. I'm a bit sceptical so lets see how this month goes and we can look at other crowdfunding platforms in the new year if it continues to be a problem.

I have chipped in - first time I've got in there before it closed.

Fundrazr fights you every step of the way, doesn't it? Got there in the end though - I think.

Monthly update on forum finances.

 

Last months FundRazr overshot the £100 target and we reached £115.00, thanks to all who donated - It seemed that the PayPal bug wasn't as prevalent this month, or people stopped bothering to let me know... Anyway -  it is very much appreciated.

 

Costs this month have been a total of £83.00 for the hosting and backups. Fundrazr admin costs and paypal processing fees were a further £11.50

 

Combined, the costs were £94.50

 

The current balance in the account is therefore +£371.72

 

As before, we'll keep this as a reserve in case of unexpected costs, and open a new Fundrazr campaign to cover the costs for the next month. The target will be £90.00 to cover Fundrazr fees, hosting and backups. As we're increasing the money in the coffers each month I'm going to reduce the funding targets to use up some of the surplus.

 

The link to the new FundRazr page can be found HERE

 

Again, all donations are very much appreciated.

 

Please let me know if the PayPal issue resurfaces, I hope we're past that now.

I had the same issue with PayPal, though I can't guarantee it wasn't because I put the password in wrongly. Card worked though, so apparently I have had Social Impact. Well, that's a first.

Is FundRazr helpful? Seems a bit half-arsed to me. Up to you though.

Whatever, thanks again for keeping the old ship afloat so well after it was very nearly scuppered with all hands.

Usual update on forum finances, y'all

 

Last months FundRazr overshot the £90 target and we reached £92.00, thanks to all who donated - Didn't hear much in the way of PayPal problems, please let me know if they do reoccur though.

 

Costs this month have been the usual total of £83.00 for the hosting and backups. Fundrazr admin costs and paypal processing fees were a further £9.20

 

Combined, the costs were £92.20

 

The current balance in the account is therefore +£371.52

 

As before, we'll keep this as a reserve in case of unexpected costs, and open a new Fundrazr campaign to cover the costs for the next month. The target will be £90 to cover Fundrazr fees, hosting and backups. As we're increasing the money in the coffers each month I'm going to reduce the funding targets to use up some of the surplus.

Only fair that I contribute this month as I sold the Picarso via the site, so split the net profit with the site! Don't get excited, I only made a tenner after all costs were factored in :-)

 

PayPal worked fine

Is there enough in the kitty for a bunch of flowers for Hendrys funeral or owt? Do we know someone who would tell us where/when it is? Or a floral display in the shape of a Ford escort, with brown flowers for the rear arches...

Sam, whilst I understand where you are coming from, the kitty was originally established for funding of the hosting cost of this site.

Given the past issues over the transparency of what money was going where, I would suggest that any whip-round to other causes outwith the original remit should be separately raised and processed, even if it is under the collective banner of Autoshite.

FWIW I’d be happy to see some forum funds being used for this. If we can’t agree as a website to make a small gesture like this, it sort of seems wrong.

I can’t see it not being transparent as it’s being suggested up front, but again that’s just my view.

I would expect most people would be more than happy (happy isn’t really the appropriate word in this circumstance is it) to show a bit of respect collectively with a wreath or mental health charity donation.
Maybe autoshite should adopt a mental health charity....

There has been talk of a sort of AS nominated charity before, but cannot remember where we ended up with it. It'd be a nice gesture imho, but obviously up to everyone really and it goes without saying it wouldn't be a 'forced' donation if it did go ahead.
