Donations

Postby Dr. Goodword » Tue May 08, 2018 7:50 am

Back when we were having trouble with out e-mail server, a couple of you suggested that you would be willing to help with the expense of a new server. Well, we have one now that works, but it is costing me more, $150/month. As you might know, I'm a retired university professor and that, added to the cost of the web server, it a significant sum.

The Lexiteria, a company that supplied word frequency lists to those who wanted them, was a profitable company for 10 years and some of the profits went into supporting the website and GWs. When I closed it in 2014 we still had money in the bank, so Lexiteria continued to support us for three and a half years more. That money has run out now just when we need it.

So, I feel compelled to ask you for your financial support. Please click here to do so. The entire staff donate our efforts without compensation; all donations will be used exclusively for the maintenance of our servers.

It still will not allow me to donate by credit card without
a PayPal account, which I do not want.

I'm sorry I can't help you. We've received dozens of donations with no other complaints. The problem is with PayPal and we simply can't afford the cost or responsibility of putting up our own payment page.

You contribute quite a bit to the Agora. Let's let it go at that.

I'd be more than happy from time to time to send a check.
I appreciate the site too much to let paypay dictate this.
But I cannot find an address for the site. Do you want
to share one with me?
