Enetation Donation Drive
Enetation costs a bomb to run and I can only subsidise it so far, and have never
before asked of anything from its users. To cover spiraling costs I am asking
for a donation - with a difference, that you get something back ;)
What a donor gets:
(i dont like begging so I coded some groovy features
- All donors will have their accounts located on a different server than the
main original system, which will be limited in users. As a result it will be
like having your own dedicated commenting system :)
- You can choose to be emailed when you get a new comment, and not just 'there
is a new comment' it will say who posted it and what they said :)
XML and CSV Exports:
- Export or just backup your comments. People seem to like this :)
No Enetation Advert:
- The originial enetation now has a small plug for itself in it, by donating
you get rid of that.
- Code developments will surface first on donor accounts, likewise they will
get their support emails answered first and will be open for future updates
Guaranteed Long Term Commenting:
- For those who donate I will guarantee the enetation service will be online
for you to use for the next 12 months (and hopefully longer!).
Why should I donate?
Basically to keep enetation here for you the use. I want to be able to provide
this system to users, however I cant do that without your help. This is the
first time I have asked users for anything back, and I dont like the idea of
begging, so thats why you 'get something' when you donate. Enetation has currently
been funded in server and bandwidth costs by my pocket, and my incentive to
spend all night awake coding / fixing things has been to provide the service.
I dont want enetation to become yet another system that dies and thus to ensure
its around costs need to be covered.
How does donating work?
Donations can be made using your debit or credit card here
or via Paypal below.
Its quite simple, you stick your existing enetation username and paypal username
into the boxes below and hit 'donate'. Your then taken to PayPal and
are asked to donate $14 (about 10 quid). Within 24 hours you will be emailed
new code for your page and you get to play with loads of new features with the
nice warm fuzzy feeling that you get for donating.
Why £10? (14USD)
Most people I asked said they wanted to donate 'between £10-£15
quid' so I stuck with the lower amount. Also it will mean that enetation can
certainly contiune to provide a great service. It also makes those who want
to donate more save money, and those who want to donate less stop being scrooge
Ok, I want to donate!
Thank you, just fill out this quick and easy form:
We need the enetation username and paypal username as donations are processed
If you wish to donate and dont use paypal you can donate
via credit or debit card here
Again, thanks alot for donating, enetation needs it to survive.
