Gaz why we can only pay via paypal? I Dont have a paypal account and dont want to have one. But i want to donate!! Dont we have a way to pay with credit card?
If people donate to keep it alive what happens in the future? Do you rely on donations for ever? Or are you expecting a change to come soon?
Just asking as I'm not aware of the situation..
Bumping this guys as we seem to be coming back round to it being a concern again due to getting all but only $30 over the last month which falls far far short of the cost to keep MJJC's server online.
The short burst we had which was like wow paid for the three month bill and I now have half the next so when its due I can't pay it.
Please help guys and rather than me begging and getting massive burst a trickle over time will suffice
And so you can see thus far for August (now on 17th) we have only received 30% of the bill
July we only received $160 of the $250 equalling about 70%
Thus the above now putting us way down on our next bill as that's 100% of a month's fee's missing thus my shortfall now.
Going forward I am looking to to reduce server to reduce costs, but as I've stated with reducing server means being able to cope with less traffic thus if it gets busy MJJC will go offline - I have been putting this off as what we have now is a good box and can handle lots to ensure its never offline, but if needs must I will have no choice.
Anyway thought I'd go into little more detail to ensure a bit of transparency but in a net shell the monthly bar target is the cost of keeping MJJC online.
And a short note to nah sayers/haters out there who keep screenshotting this post to continually berate me for posting such calls for help - in what world do you live in where servers are free? MJJC is a large and active site and needs a large and good performing server to ensure users have a live site to enjoy and continue their Michaeling. the world I live in businesses supply servers businesses that want to make profits, pay employee's and costs of data centers, they then for a service we need "Charge" a fee the bigger the server the bigger the fee, MJJC is a non profit fan developed fan club, we are not sponsored we are not corporate owned thus this bill falls on a person that person being me as I made the choice to create a site for fans to have a home online to honour/celebrate Michael - so kick me all you want (I don't care) but these facts are part of life and part of reality I can not change.
What is exact amount that's needed to keep this place up and running?
And just in case anyone is wondering as I'm always on the ask - Yes I add money to from my bank account
just donated - hope everything turns out right

I would, but I don't trust Paypal, we have numerous issues with it and all the spam that I get when I tried to set up an account 8 years ago. Is there another and safer way. I also live in New Zealand, so we have no idea what Switch is.
I will donate a little again next weeg Gaz
I hope it will be in time
Loving you forever <3

Ok guys in the MJJC paypal is this amount £316.19 but I need the below to pay the next three months server.
Given we are now at the point where we dont have enough to pay our bills I am now looking to action the first of the two next steps, first is to put us back to monthly as its lots less to collect however we will then loose the 5% reduction for paying quarterly thus it will now be more expensive. the second is to start looking for a smaller server thus reducing our monthly outlay, however this will come at a cost, when we become busy we will go offline as the smaller server will have less capability. so if anything major MJ happens MJJC will not be able to cover it.
So in the mean time I have 2 weeks to raise the remaining, no I'm not putting anymore more in as I've already put in £50 ($78.47)
