    Forum donations for upgrades.

    The mods and I have been talking, and Gsnarls really like the idea of when you add someone to ignore, you don't see their posts anymore, or even the "You have this person on ignore".
    I said to have something like that custom done will be about $100, probably less. Gsnarls said he would pay for it (bless his soul), but I said there's no need for him to cover the cost.
    So I set up a donation page. The donations isn't mandatory, it's simply for anyone that wants to help the site out, and contribute for improvements. I will not take any of the money from
    donations. The donations will strictly be for forum upgrades, modifactions, and any costs needed for the site. It costs some money for the forum, and monthly costs for the server, but I
    really don't mind paying it, I'm just glad the forum turned into what it did. But some guys said they'd like to donate, so I'm setting this up.

    Also, I'd like to mention, I told Gsnarls to send a $1 payment to test it, to make sure it was working, and he went ahead and sent $50. So thanks so much. I told him the whole point of this
    was so he didn't have to donate a lot lol.

    And if anyone has any other ideas for forum modifications, let me know. If we all agree on it, we can do it. I've been trying to get something to link the stands off the forum, but it's been
    hard finding something that works. I think MLB doesn't like their content shared for some reason, as you can tell by rarely seeing any MLB videos on youtube.

    To make a donation, please visit:
    http://www.bluejaysmessageboard.com/donate.html
    You can pay by paypal or credit card. All transactions are safe and secure, and done via PAYPAL, not our website.
    Also, if you wante to put your username in the message, I'll try and give a little "donator" tag to your name, if you'd like.
    Thank you for all donations, it is appreciated, and will help the site grow.

    We are not affiliate with MLB or the Toronto Blue Jays. Any donations will not be taken as profit.

    The ignore list will be about $100, at most.
    Any extra money will be used for any future modifications/costs etc. Any upgrades that are decided upon. It's not mandatory, don't feel forced.
    I wouldn't mind seeing if I could do the standings thing, or maybe even live scores somehow integraded into the site, if that's possible.
    There's just been a few posts where guys said they wouldn't mind donating a few bucks towards site costs, so I figured I'd put this up for those that want to.
    Gsnarls covered most the cost for this upgrade, which I told him not to!
    Some sites take donations to make money, this is donations to go back into the site.

    I'll take a look at that. I kinda like the paypal one though, as I can just keep it in the paypal account, rather than the money going into my bank account (which it does for email transfer).

    lol we can use it for that too!
    We can always use the money towards contests, and stuff like that too.
    Signed jersey or signed bat giveaway would be pretty cool.

    I'd be down to donate if the upgrades were worthwhile.

    My suggestion/request (if possible). If you put someone on ignore they wouldn't be able to see your posts either.

    Based on hype and a 60 sample? There's not a big difference between a good and an average goalie, and the leafs paid a second round pick to improve the backup goalie position slightly.

    This gave me a good laugh. Somehow streaking at a Jays game with bluejaysmessageboard turns into profit. Brilliant! I can actually see this working, strangely enough. Or at least it would in a movie.

    You should be able to get plugins/mods like this for free on the vBulletin Customization forum. I can help if you need it...I've run four of these forums before.
