    Default Donations System

    You my have noticed I added a donations system to the forum yesterday.

    Between Blivett and I we spend hundreds of dollars every year on hosting, VBulletin upgrades, modifications and add-ons, etc.

    Using this is not required and the site wont terminate if no one uses it, its just there for anyone that feels like helping out the UA community.

    As confirmed donors will be displayed on a public list here:

    A trophy may be possible.

    I was trying to donate $10. When I select the $10 amount in the drop down menu, I get an error pop up message saying "The minimum donation is $5."

    Actually it's kinda picky... it only likes you to donate either $5 or $50.

    just by reading others what not to do posts and others explores this sight has helped a lot. I figured Id help with what I can. But Im continuing to lay low key on these forums especialy being a young explorer (newer to UE), and especially with what has been going on in this forum latlely. Not to mention all the places I have explored everyone else has been to time and time again.
    Poor Spelling and A fowl mouth my signature mark all the way. How I passed the national certifications because of this no one knows.

    Just gave you some green, Figured you could use a little. Sent me to a list of all the smilees so I don't if that means your so happy you can't express it or that there might be a glitch. Either way, just wanted to let you know.
