    Now, that being said, there's not really much more to discuss in this thread, going forward, IMO. The owner has made his position clear and now we have a great idea in place, with the patron page. People are signing up to help out and therefore our end goal of keeping the forum running for the members should be achieved, as we progress further into 2020. There's no need for people to keep musing about the situation in here and/or saying the same kinds of things over and over.

    Let's all forge ahead, shall we.

    How are we keep tracking of how much we still need for the month?
    The amount still needed after Patreon donations will be displayed using the donation bar near the top of the forum.

    That’s great. How often does it update? Currently it’s still sitting at 0 for next month. Once a month, when the Patreon donations have been collected?

    Gaz will update the total needed soon, to reflect the current Patrons. And then any donations made through PayPal will show up on the donation bar. Unless we get a new influx of Patrons the amount still needed each month isn't likely to fluctuate that much, but we'll keep it up to date. I think we're currently still over $100 short of what's needed for this month.

    Oh. Let’s hope a few more will sign up for the Patreon.

    Good idea! Please everyone spread the word, far and wide!



    This is a reminder to all members to please restrict discussions and questions in this thread to the topic of donations and patronage.

    Questions about the status of other members are not appropriate and disrespect to other members or staff is definitely not okay.

    I'm not sure what's going to happen with the bar now. Gaz is going to clarify the situation for you guys. He's in charge of this stuff.

    In a nut shell guys, I will add what the amount is from patrons to the donation bar each month, the goal is to get the patrons to the full amount thus I will then be able to get rid of the donation bar and we will never have to worry about the cost of keeping this place again, so yeah as the patrons go up the less will be needed on the donation bar.

    I'm now about to update it so we can see where we are.

    Even though this site can be confusing sometimes. i'm glad it's still up and running. a lot MJ forums shut down in the past due to Michael death and not funding the site. so it's really good that site still going and really good due to the fact all the courtcases and things coming up this year and probably next year. it's 2005 all over again. and i wasn't even around on this site back then.

    I really hope this site can last as long as it can. things cost more then they did in the past. it will also be nice maybe one day to even update this site with enough money.

    it can be difficult sometimes but this site is a blessing. keep it up.

    It´s already the 16th and we still need so much money for January. Then, every month it will be the same ... Can we do this? Will this work?

    It seems to be so much money every single month.

    I'm actually amazed that it seems like most people in here simply aren't willing to share the burden. The amount needed actually isn't much considering the amount of traffic. If only a very small part of our community is willing to pay $ 1 a month this place will be saved. For something that gives us so much joy a $ 1 a month is nothing. At least not for many users in here. I figured that shouldn't be the problem, but i might be wrong.

    The Patreon group at this point only reached a monthly collection of $ 90. Still if only an additional 60 people in here are willing to pay $ 1 a month this place is save.

    I'm amazed that if crowdfunding is started for concert videos we raise thousands of dollars in only a couple of days and this community is actually at risk.

    Don't forget people, without this community crowdfunding for rare footage will most likely won't work either.

    Please chip in.

    Thnx!
