    In the unlikely event of a surplus, funds would most likely be saved for future expansions. At the current rate of growth, it's quite likely that the forums will need a managed, dedicated hosting package within a year or two and those can cost $150-$300 a month or more:-( That doesn't include the costs of the chat room, software and domain names that add up to another $25 a month or more at current prices.

    I would expect that there could be a few server/hosting moves in the near future, depending on how the load of our forums is tolerated by providers, especially those who have submitted the less expensive quotes that are possible with the current rate of donations. I'm not making any promises of course, but in any case, I don't forsee my plans for a vacation house in Malibu moving forward anytime soon... I'll just be happy if I can avoid any additional personal expenses beyond those I've made over the last 7 years lol.

    Re: Please Support Car-Seat.Org

    I never thought you'd put it towards a vacation house in Malibu (LOL)... maybe one in Maui? Could it be like a time-share? I gave my $50, can I have 2 nights in August?

    I just wasn't sure if you had considered that possibility, and I didn't know if you'd put it towards the forum, or your SafeKids/Seatcheck, whatever it is you do up there in IL.

    Don't ask me if I'm having more, I may be tempted to say yes!

    Re: Please Support Car-Seat.Org

    Maybe there should be a "Timeshare" level of donations;-)

    Another option would be a "Hire Shellebelle for a Car-Seat.Org Makeover" level! That might take a big corporate sponsor, too...

    Just to be clear, donations for Car-Seat.Org will be used only for forum and website costs, including but not limited to hosting, domain names, chat room, software, addons, skins or other services/enhancements. If this policy changes in the future, I will make a post about the details.

    Seatcheck.net is my own inspection service and a set of webpages for Illinois specific information. DuPage Safe Kids is the local Safe Kids chapter I coordinate. They do not support and are not supported by the Car-Seat.Org forums except that they all depend on my time and effort. I do host a webpage for them, of course, but that is the only real connection to the forums and website.

    Question Re: Please Support Car-Seat.Org

    I just donated for the level 2 membership (via Paypal). Will I get the Car-Seat.Org Benefactor title too?

    Re: Please Support Car-Seat.Org

    Hello,

    As long as your subscription has cleared (eCheck Paypal payments can take 4 business days to clear), then you will have the appropriate title choices available. To choose among the titles, go into your User CP and the "Group Memberships" area.

    If you don't see the expected option, please let me know and I will look into it. If you can see the Senior Community Member forum and Chat Room link on the Navbar, then you should have the Benefactor/Supporter titles available to you.

    Thank you for your donation!

    My wife and I are both readers of this board. Both of us are in EMS with my main job working with Neonates and critical injured children. We both paid to support this site and will keep doing so. Child saftey is so very important and we want to thank all the techs for the hard work they put into teaching and inspecting seats. We just had our first child on 11 Sept and we are very excited to have him around. Again thanks for what you do and for trying to make our jobs easier.

    Within the next few hours or so. I know I did not gain access right away.

    Re: Please Support Car-Seat.Org

    Thank you for your donation! Usually, once Paypal has processed the transaction, it should only take a few minutes.

    In some cases, like if you are paying from a Paypal account with no cash balance and funded from a linked account, Paypal issues an "eCheck". These often take at least a few business days to clear. If you check the transaction in your Paypal account, it will say "Uncleared" and give you an estimated date. This type of delay is beyond our control and you would need to contact Paypal for more information.

    Once an eCheck clears, Paypal should issue another notification and the forums should automatically update your account here. If that doesn't happen on the day of clearing, please send a PM to Admin to double check and update manually if necessary.

    Thank you!
