I setup 3 colors for donate link:
- red for less than 10 donators
- orange for less than 20 donators
- green for more than 20 donators

Last two months show me that more than 20 donators are enough for monthly cost
Thanks for all your support guys.

Last 3 months average donations show me that 20 donators was a good value to cover abime.net costs, so I have added a "/20" in the navbar to let you know our current status

I'd like to disable ads temporarily since it makes it hard for me to use EAB atm.

Attachments won't display, pages won't finish loading, and clicking PM also doesn't finish loading.

I just can't seem to remember how, help?

RCK: Do you mind telling us approximately what percentage the ads cover? Is it negligable or makes quite a difference? (ie. Would it be worth one average donation or 0.1 or 5 etc)

After those 3 months, I can now tells that ads only give money when you click on them.
I think that one click every 3 days will give the same than one monthly donation.
Unfortunately, even with 300+ members displaying ads, the total average daily click is 2, so no, ads doesn't cover donations at the moment

But it's only worth clicking on interesting ones, as they will detect daily clickers and cause more problems than it solves. I always enjoy when mega corporations ads come up like Dell, HP, Microsoft, Google etc - I have no quarms about them paying RCK when I click. They can afford them!

I'd say in the long run any click (rather than no click...) will help. It's just good to know it makes a difference to just displaying them

IMHO. these are the most authoritative words of advice in this thread on clicking advertising banners:

So far, there have been 75 donations made by 63 donators. Four of these have donated twice and another four have donated three times.

You got my donation in the tip jar.

Also, imo it would be interesting to enable Recurring Payments on your PayPal account for those willing to steadily support the forum - and not caring to put a POST-IT on the monitor as a reminder :-)

Hum, I have added three 6 months subscription options, but I don't really know how it will works between EAB and paypal.
If someone choose on recurring payment, please post here so I follow his paypal account to check if everything is OK.
