Thank you (for donating)!
« on: April 19, 2015, 07:37:03 AM »
On the other forum we agreed that I make a post that gets updated with the total amount of donations to the forum and a list of the contributors, the latter not telling how much each member had donated. If somebody donates but doesn't want to show up on that list, he can send me a PM.

Sorry, I forgot this post on here before. Now I gotta do from memory.  :-[

Financial donations to this forum amount in total to

THB 11,220

and the contributors are

Baby Fartrs

Chezandykorat

dawn

Georgeanddragon

Roger

Takeitor

Taman Tun

Thaiga

+ 1 non-member

Please send me a PM, if I forgot to put somebody on this list who has already donated. I promise to update this in time from now on.

Most of our supporters discreetly used that PayPal button on the top right, others asked me in a PM for a bank account they could transfer to at an ATM or via internet banking. Even if PayPal charges considerable fees I do prefer that, because they notify me of any donations that were made. The bank I have to go to and update the passbook. But that doesn't tell me who donated. Please send me a PM, so you don't remain anonymous. Thank you!

Hey! well done you guys, i will now retract what i was thinking. ::)

I know you enjoy doing it but just out of curiosity if it's not to personal 3 Questions

OK 9,000 bht in donations but for over how many years.

What is the charge for the webhost per annum.

in the about six years since this forum has opened.

What is the charge for the webhost per annum.
 

The webhost per year is €59,90. But I don't use that web account for this forum alone. Korat-Info.com runs on it, too. The domain koratfart.com, since I didn't register that as inclusive with the webspace, costs another $10 a year; with our webhost it would cost more than twice that much. And besides work there are more extra costs for the equipment and utilities at home necessary to run it, for example hard discs for back ups, wear of my computer equipment, electricity, sometimes for help when a technical or software problem cannot be solved by myself. Plus coffee, headache pills etc. ;D

could one earn a living out of doing it.


No! You would need a lot more people regularly sharing in the work, mainly doing ad acquisition, i. e. running around talking businesses into placing paid ads on the site. For making a penny by the web agencies like Google Adsense, Medianet, Bidvertiser etc. this site is too specialized; expats in Korat and Isaan are hardly a target group for them. Their ads are more nuisance than info to our readers. Ads to blend in would need to be from local businesses. Everybody who reads this forum regularly has seen enough of their attitudes. But still we need info about local businesses, so we know where to get what at decent prices. What other option do we have than taking that into our own hands and recommend those to our peers on a site we support ourselves, if the businesses don't meet us halfway by paid ads or supporting this medium by donations. So far my philosophy about this project. I elaborated my ideas already in the discussion about a Korat Expats Club on tv early 2006, just before the old kf was opened. They went into there, but the admin made a lot of wrong decisions and the project collapsed.

Edit:amount corrected
Up to 10,000 bht now - MRS.t paid in bangkok bank today 1,020 bht.

You might ask why 1,020 bht. well here's the story.

I asked her to put 1,000 bht into the said account, she said - wy ar u giv mony peple.
I then explained it was a little contribution to the upkeep of the forum, just like you give to buddha for the upkeep of the temple. hence the 20 bht.

So that's another donator.  :)
