I've just paid £20 by PayPal gift to **out-of-date paypal address**, and I encourage you to make a donation as well.
Edit - correct PayPal address is firstname.lastname@example.org
TheFretboard launched in August 2013: the founders asked for donations at the time, and I said I'd chip in £20 a year as a "Friend Of The Forum" - every August therefore I make a donation, and encourage others to do the same.
We enjoy this free forum off the back of the stupendous generosity of the founders and admins and moderators, not just in money they've spent on server costs etc, but most especially in the vast amounts of time they have all devoted to this place. For this reason, every year I also request that if funds permit, my £20 donation be put towards treating them to some token of appreciation, and once again you might like to do the same - perhaps alcohol, a slap-up meal, a Netflix subscription etc may help the noble modmins to feel appreciated for the saintly and thankless task they do.
