If the forum has helped you, please consider a donation!
« on: April 02, 2016, 05:37:37 AM »
If you have been helped by the forum and all the amazing work our members have done, please consider a donation to help us continue helping folks like yourself.

While this community provides a way to meet up with other folks to share the joy of conventions, it takes a lot of time and energy to put together the buying groups as well as the hotel exchange documents and forms, in addition to maintaining the threads and forum areas.  There are also expenses that go with this venture, including hosting fees, outlays for lanyards, marketing to expand the community, etc.  Many plans for back-end improvements are in progress, which could potentially provide a more robust environment for the badge buying groups and the like.   

We would gladly appreciate your support as we strive to plan for the needs of the community going forward.



There are currently four ways of helping:
[1] a regular monthly donation via Patreon.com: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
[2] a donation through the forum's subscription portal:
     Go to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions
[3] a donation through PayPal without incentives: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
     If you just want to donate any amount (and aren't interested in the lanyard or ad-free option), this is the option for you.


Currently, the incentive options are:

Donate $20.00 USD and get no ads on the forum for 6 months.
*Please use the forum's subscription portal by going to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions.

Donate $40.00 USD and get no ads for 12 months.
*Please use the forum's subscription portal by going to your forum Profile > Actions > Paid Subscriptions.

Donate $50.00 USD and get no ads for 12 months, plus a complimentary (free!) Friends of Comic Con lanyard shipped to your door.
*The lanyard is a $12.00 USD value!
*Please use PayPal (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) and include your preferred shipping address in the "Notes" box.




Regardless of the incentives, any and all donations are gratefully accepted!

Thank you so much for your contribution and support to our wonderful community!

Just made a small donation.

This is a great community as I've both benefited from and helped others here.

Thanks!
