Hey Gav maybe you need a colored barometer on each page to remind us of the plus or minus situation of $$$ and usage. Lynton


Yes good idea Lynton and whilst I could do this manually, I don't want people to think I'm manipulating the meter ;). So I've been working on a way to automate it, I started last night. However there are a few things to work out in order to do that first.

I like the idea of having some sort of Balance Sheet to show donations versus expenses each month. Gav I reckon you would get a lot more people throwing in when a short fall occurs. Obviously it's not at the forfront of the members minds and if they don't know you are short then you might miss out.
Cheers


Done, the homepage now has a widget that shows how much we have raised toward hosting costs each month.

Maybe try Shift F5 (refresh) to see it. Could be a cached version on your machine.

Good to know, it appears to be almost real time.

I decided to use this widget because it saved me having to do it all manually. Seems to be pretty nifty.

Just checked and thought I should mention we received a $50 donation on the 1st of June. Unfortunately I could not add a start amount to the progress bar.

Great job Gav. It's good to see how we are all adding to the target. Hopefully it helps to prompt us for donations.

Cheers.

Gav, Does that system use Paypal? Or do you have to register with them?

Payments are done via PayPal. This tool (widget) just pulls data from the PayPal API to display the total amount donated.

just donated $20 yankee dollars

Thanks mate, and thanks everyone so far. If I had known the response would have been this impressive I would have put this up ages ago.

Yeah I think this might even get more newer members to donate, especially when the bar is really low. It really hits home the constant ongoing costs of the website.
