    donations to the site or a donating member gift type thing

    with the money it takes to keep a site like this going, is there a way to give the site some money? i dont really want to see paying members getting more access than anyone else kinda thing. like a paying members only section. i think everyone should have the same access, paying member or not. instead maybe donating member get a small "gift" with the speedfreaks logo. like a sticker or key chainor maybe some small fuzzy dice or something cheap along those lines. i would love some fuzzy dice to hang on the fastjeep's rear view. maybe a sticker for every 10 dollars given or a sticker for 10 and a keychain for 20 dice for 30. with the economy the way it is i don't think donating members should get anything beside or under their name saying they are. some people do not have the funds to donate or just don't want to.the stickers/key chain/fuzzy dice/one hitter could be the incentive. hell if someone has a better idea of a incentive so be it.

    i know that stuff is hard to keep up with and i dont know if that would make you haave to have a business license or file taxes on the site . it would depend on which state it is based from maybe? if that is the case it would not be worth it at all. after the thanks thread, seeing how much most people think of the site and how much tech for grands are here, it would be nice to help it stay around and going. . i would just like to help the site stay going since its a great place to hang out and talk tech.


    and i want to throw this out there to the power that be. i know a lot of people have been asking about stickers including me. i have access to a diecut business. a friend of mine has one and can pretty much put logos on anything. i would donate the stickers and mail them to anyone interested enough to request them for no charge as my good deed to the site. well let me throw this in. i dont know how many have curently requested them but if there is like 10,000 people i would have to rethink the "at no charge" part. if that is something y'all would be interested in , hit me up. i would be glad to do it. just need an idea how many we are looking at for me to get a price on, and a couple other things. like size,color, etc

    This suggestion was made shortly after the site was changed over to the new format. I for one don't need or want any gift for making a donation. I'm happy to assist financially. Don't need to be recognised for it either.

    If the forum owner would provide a PayPal "send money to" address I would be pleased to make a donation. I'm sure there are others that feel the same. This site has elevated my interest in my Jeep and offered such great advice. I like playing here.

    i will give some money with out a gift either. i just know there were some people , including me, requesting stickers and i know those can get expensive and time consuming to keep up with and just give them out for free. that is why i was suggesting a "gift". if someone wanted a sticker it would not hurt them to give 10 bucks. the site could take .50 cents of the 10 dollars and send them a sticker or 2 and use the rest for the site. the only thing i don't really know about is the taxes part of it. depending on how much money was given as donations, i dont know if it would require taxers being paid by the site or person or persons that own the site or if its a non profit deal. which all of those have their own headaches. i was thinking the "gift" thing might let them slip by on the taxes deal. i wasn't offering it as a way to get money, more as a way to get money without the fawking government taking it all. sorry for the confussion.

    i still stand by my offer of sending the stickers out for free. seems mexijeeper is not interested in any stickers. if anyone else is interested in them, and if the site doesn't mind, i can start a thread and get names and do it all on my own if they do not want to get involved. i just do not want anyone to have me in court for giving out free stickers with the thespeedfreaks.net logo on them without permission.

    if someone had an image of the logo that would be ok for me to use, if they could send it to me i will be use it or if i need to rob the one from the home page is fine also. i used to do a little diecutting mysself. or if i need to stop thisw idea all together, will an admin or mod send me a pm. thanks guys.




    "i will not be asking or receiving/taking any money for the stickers which i do send out. anyone wanting to give money should inquire about giving it to thespeedfreaks.net website. i have no affiliation with thespeedfreaks.net website or its owners. i also will not guarantee that everyone will get a sticker. it will be a first come, first serve basis till i run out of people or run out of stickers. "

    we were in the works of such a thing but are trying to find a way to do it. if we did it thru paypal they take a huge percentage. but yeah you guys are right...its not cheap or easy hahahahaha. its not a huge priority in our lives right now so thats why it hasnt been done. and yeah we wont give donating members special treatment but we will prob put a thing by the screen name that says donating member or something along those lines.

    If I send or receive a PayPal payment I check "gift" and they don't take a commission fee. Oh and by the way SUPERJEEP it won't be too long before you hit the 2 million posts mark. Very impressive.

    let me know I'm in for one. And with the donations thing tell me where I'll send some money in cuz I know the cost of this stuff (went to tech school for computers and webpage design). This place keeps me sane during boring periods at work.

    SuperJeep should have the original image file as I got the stickers from him ( he made a wack of them when we started out, I have a few left to mail to Canadian forum members as it was easier for me )
