Thumbs up EAB's Donators Awards 2015

Let's celebrate our EAB's Donators for 2015 !

First, I would like to thanks the 10 members who have subscribed to our monthly donation paypal help.
They are the fuel of this board, thanks guys

Boulder
Dejavu
FrodeSolheim
Geijer
jman
Mr.Flibble
neoman
seuden
slaapliedje
Tmw2n

I don't forget the others Donators !, even if they did not subscribe to monthly donation, they also help us a lot.
This year, the most important donations (20 or more) were made by:

brendank
DamienD
ghosty777
giovanni
nogginthenog
Overflow
Tweeky

Finally, the EAB Supporter group is working well, with 1000 per 4000 members with the option active.
(this group help us by displaying one advertisement in the header of EAB)

However, the number of daily click is now very bad, only 1 per day
It's sad because we were at 3 per day at the beginning of the year.
But yes, I can understand it's boring to look at those ads


At last, I would like to thank you all, for keeping the Amiga alive !
This board would be nothing without all of you

If you are logged in, the link takes you to the donators list. If you are reading it as a guest, you get to the smilies page.

Question: What kind of reciept can I get for a donation? Just asking because of tax reasons. I need something "on paper" (where PDF would be sufficient).

Slightly offtopic rant.

First of all, congrats to Rick for such a ginormous effort: 13 years of EAB and counting. Compared to that I'm just a baby here
There is some precious technical knowledge here that beats every other forum.

Now, people are more and more aware of the nuisance of ad-supported sites, apps and so on. More and more are using ad-blocking extensions.

As far as I am concerned, I am not intersted in *any* kind of advertsement (the same way I used to skip them on TV), so I prefer a subscription/donation model coupled with stuff like gadgets or custom Amazon links (they give back something to the website).
Heck, you can pull all the money you want from people, just push the right "button".

There is already an ongoing crusade against adblockers and reports quantifying lost revenues are popping up. IMHO, these reports are questionable, to say the least, but the path is clear: this business model needs to be replaced or improved because people are fed up of flashing banners and scam sites.

Happy Holydays

Not a regular donator, but still proud I found myself among "other donators" 8 times.

Whoops! I did to start with (click an ad) but stopped when I started to see adverts repeat. Then obviously completely forgot (I have Ad block disabled for EAB). Will get into the habit again. Unfortunately, I have very limited funds and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to donate if and when my circumstances change so if clicking on an ad (once again) helps then I will do so.

Keep up the excellent work, RCK and long live EAB!

*EDIT* Hmmm. since posting this, I'm getting no advertisements showing on EAB's Index page - just the text "Advertisement"

From what I read on the paypal donations developer page, you can get and print a receipt on their website as donator.
https://developer.paypal.com/docs/cl...ation_buttons/

Can a recent donator try to find a receipt on their paypal account ? (asrael, avh_2009)

Thanks

I honestly didn't know I had to click on the ads to support it, I thought just showing them would be enough.

I'll be clicking on them more often. I just did it in fact

Just made a donation; I think I've had way more value than I've put into EAB over the years. Thanks!
