chipIn - A way to thank the at-least-5-years-long hosting?

Post by Bertram » 08 Jun 2010, 08:59

Hi there,

I wondered whether adding a small chipIn box, right of the mana world main page to help Platyna buy her 4GB kingston rambus-or-whatever memory addon would be a nice addition.

See here: http://www.chipin.com/

Hedgewars is using it, and it seems that it has brought some results.

What do you think, Platyna, the others?

Best regards.

Sounds nice. ;-)

Code: Select all

<object width="250" height="250"><param name="movie" value="http://widget.chipin.com/widget/id/6f60e4ccfafa4022"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://widget.chipin.com/widget/id/6f60e4ccfafa4022" flashVars="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="always" wmode="transparent" width="250" height="250"></embed></object>

I also have good personal experiences with chipin.
This message used to be meaningful.

I guess it's not hurting if we push Platyna's changes there?

Hi,

I pushed it to the website repo:
http://gitorious.org/tmw/website/commit ... 55899a5038

The chipIn box paypal page needs to be displayed in English, and you should put a description about the use of the money in the chipIn options, I guess.

Btw, Platyna, did you see my mail about access request for dev.themanaworld.org?

Best regards.

Problem is I did not gave any link to paypal, it must have chosen it by the TLD of the paypal id... kinda sux.
Also that chipin seems kinda buggy, eg. one person made a donation through it, I got info via email but the donation was not counted.

Yes I have seen your email, I will process it today. I have so many exams that I barely have the time to sleep. XD

Hi,

Now that the chipIn for RAM is over, what's up with this?

Shall I remove the chipIn thingy and replace it with a thank you note, or not?

What will be made with the money? Used to start another nuclear war, thus preventing us from ageing?

Comments?

Stay tuned.

Regards.

What will be done with the money? RAM will be bought, and installed, it may however take a bit as I have to travel to different city to do so, if something will be left, it will be kept on the server's account, for future use.
