As some of our tech savvy visitors may know, vBulletin has recentely raised their rates in anticipation of their new software (vBulletin4). In the past, it has been manageable between staff to pay for the licenses every year...but with the new costs nearing the 200.00 mark we are now asking for your help to keep these forums active and lessen the financial strain it takes to run this website.

Donaters who have not donated in the past will recieve V.I.P. status, and access to a VIP only area of the forum that is not regularly available to public forum users.

If you are interested in giving money to LPA for the upgrade/future site changes, you may do so by clicking at the Paypal link at the bottom of this page.

Donaters:

CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=derek%40lpassociation%2ecom&item_name=The%20Linkin%20Park%20Association&no_shipping=2&no_note=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8)

Respectfully Yours,
Derek Oswald

Ugh I would, Derek, but I don't have a credit card or anything. I only have a savings account. And if I asked to borrow my parents card and then pay them back..ha, that wouldn't go over well.

When I do finally get a credit card, I will be sure to donate though.

That's ok :). We just need at least 70-100 combined from people. That right there would relieve a lot of pressure.

Paypal pisses me off and the AUS$ isn't that great against the US$ at the moment...

That's fine.

Again, we're not looking for people to cover the whole 200. Just some donations to soften the blow. If anybody could help it'd be fantastic.

Hopefully I'll get a credit card in a month and a bit, then I'd love to help out...

I don't mean to sound desperate folks but the vbulletin license expires in less than two weeks. Any help you can give (10,20,50 etc) would be well appreciated.

I would help, really. But I've no money at all. Though if I do come by some I'll try to help you with it.

I've got a pretty hefty speeding fine to pay, but I'll try and help after I get that out of the way. >_<

Seems like it.

Just a reminder folks, if anybody wants to help...the license expires in one week from today...so we need any donations by the end of this week, early next week at the absolute latest.

Sorry for the double post, but a huge huge thank you goes out to Mr. Casey Tucker who just donated 50.00 towards this board.

Anybody wanna follow his trend? ;)

You're now a V.I.P. To both you and Casey? Thank you so much!

If anybody else wants to donate...we could still use help with the monthly hosting bills (120-ish a month), so feel free to contribute if you wish.

And from us normal, cheapskates! Thanks so much guys.


I'll donate once I get a credit card, I promise. Not too long now, maybe next months hosting costs.
