We take great pleasure in running this site and maintaining it for you, our visitors. We have done so from the start in 2006 and will continue to do so this year and the years following.
However, maintaining a site costs money and we do not want to use a large amount of ads to cover the expenses. That minimizes the options a bit - but given our prior experiences on another site with ads, we feel this is the best approach to take.
Making a donation
Starting in 2010, we have this donation page up and running where we ask you, our visitors for a contribution. If you feel you do want to contribute, then please do so. There is no minimum amount of money: any donation is welcome.
You have the option to enter a message with your donation to the seller ('Add special instructions' option), if you enter your name, forum handle or nick name in this message, you will be listed as a donor during one year on this page and in the forums (if you have a forum handle). If you don't enter a name, your donation will be private and won't be listed on this page or the forums.

This is somewhat higher than in 2014 as we will be moving to a new server again (which we do every two years) and have two servers in parallel for a few months, plus the new server is slightly more expensive.
This brings us to the following overview for 2015:
|Result previous years||Eur 430|

Note that if your name is not in this list and you did donate in 2015, then I'm either slow in updating this page (look at the last updated time above) or you did not add your forum account name when you made the donation, in which case you can just send me a PM with the details.
