    i have never been what you'd call computer savvy

    i simply have no clue what it costs to keep a forum running - you could tell me it takes $10 or $10,000 and i wouldn't know the difference

    so, just out of interest, what is a ballpark figure for keeping an elysian sanctuary like broken running? - $120 was mentioned somewhere but i have no idea if that's listed as a monthly figure or .....



    either way, something sent

    "i know enough to know what's instantly forgettable"

    @$120 US would cover 1 year of hosting costs for this forum at the current price we are being charged.

    Thank you so much for your help

    Well written plea Jenny. I hope you are able to keep the forum online. I emptied my Paypal account and donated $110 to the forum. But I'm curious what happened to the $100 I donated two months ago?

    I used some of it kogi for the forum and meds as I left the hospital, it was an emergency and I do understand if you want that back and will refund it back to you. I am sorry and was going to message you about this but since you asked here I wanted to be open with everyone on what happened. I explain a bit here http://brokenforums.com/showthread.p...the-fundraiser

    I see. Thanks for the explanation. Keep the money and stay in there. I know that health care in US in terms of costs are shit so no hard feelings on my part. I hope you are able to keep the forum afloat.

    Just a thought - if your interweb access is going off, I'll presume that the donations will still be picked. You guys are switched on: it'll be in hand I'm sure.
