Nobody (well, nobody but the one who handles the paypal account, who isn't me) has to know how much, or even that you donated at all, unless you want them to know. I don't plan on broadcasting how much people give, if I even know- just a general figure of how much has been raised from everyone.

How do we find out if it went through properly? I'm a little worried because my address showed up on the form as the shipping address... I hope I didn't accidentally send the money to myself. (there were two "pay now" buttons and it didn't say which one was the right one). There's also a possibility the payment was sent twice, because I had trouble with refresh when getting my receipt number. Is there anyway I can confirm everything is fine?
I always have the worst luck with these online payment things.
EDIT: It's all straightened out now. I got through okay, I just misunderstood the meaning of the PayPal receipt after it went through, but it was fine.
Ah, awkward. I always have a bad time with paypal in the UK. Happy to donate though.
Hope you don't mind a couple of questions :
-what would happen if you got bored with the forum and/or stormed off in a tiff like people running forums sometimes do (been there, got the t shirt). I know it's a blunt thing to say, but sometimes you just got to ask these things. Presumably it'll technically be the forum's server and not personal property?
-Is the idea to let us know when enough has been raised so that it doesn't become a cash cow unnecessarily?
