Title: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on March 18, 2010, 12:35:19 PM
Hi guys

we tried this a while back and failed miserably because of the strict South African Forex Laws. After months and months of jumping through hoops, filling in forms, being inspected, extraction of DNA and blood samples, we think we are ready to try it again.

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/donatescreenie.jpg) (http://www.sas1946.com/Contribute.htm)

Direct link to donations page: http://www.sas1946.com/Contribute.htm (http://www.sas1946.com/Contribute.htm)

We will now (As of 28 May 2010,) be accepting all donations through PayPal. For South Africans, getting this working was a great trick, usually only reserved for bigger companies with runners and lawyers and financial departments. But after much slogging, I got it all done.

All the guys who contribute will be named and thanked here. No stealing of your bucks will happen here. We will not pull any TV evangelical BS on you like "I need $10000 by the end of the week or my children will be executed", or blackmailing you with threats of shutting down the site and such crap. Neither are we going to buy a big fat commercial server and expect you all to pick up the tab. The site will go on regardless, and while the expenses are not life threatening, I do pay them, and some help would be cool. :)

Please include in the PayPal transaction notes, your SAS screenname also, so I can know who to thank!

Q: How much money does SAS need to run?
A: We cannot say exactly. We would (and did for a long time) pay for it ourselves, so, technically nothing :D There are 3 hosts we use, one big account that runs the forum sever, and two smaller ones elsewhere that we use to store files. After last year's attacks we have learned to keep our stuff dispersed. So there may be others we cannot mention just yet. To this you can add unknown costs, for example, we are constantly outgrowing ourselves, and having to upgrade bandwidth or space on servers. We are also trying to save so there is some leeway for us to make better decisions when doing these upgrades. And then there are bank-charges which is a small but noticeable part, for us operating from South Africa, with it's strict forex and paypal laws.

In April we took out a Mediafire Pro Account, the only way I was able to host the UP3 static downloads ,the FBDSM and the DBW updates, before passing them on to mirrors. This has proven immensely popular, and up to mid July, we have had more than 25000 files downloaded from there, totaling an amazing 5 Terabytes of data. Unfortunately this has come at a cost, and so I am adding $40 to the total target (even though it routinely costs 3 or 4 times that per month.)

Note for Feb 2012: I have set the monthly target back to $170 from $120, as it was till Oct 2011. This is to build up out VIP account at Mediafire for the release of our Large packets of single downloads for Official Patches, DBW, FBDSM and UP3. I hope it will be enough as I think a lot of guys will want to "clean" downloads of everything. If it is not enough I shall scream and ask for more :)

Note for Aug 2013: We have been able , after a year's saving , to get the host provider of our choice and move our domains and accounts, and build up a good savings cushion to protect the site for the foreseeable future. This means also that we can now drastically revise the monthly targets for the costs of running the site. Thanx to all who helped us reach that!

Note for Dec 2015: Re-hosting of images from Imageshack indicated a need for more storage space on the server, which was possible to do using donations and savings. This also require the increasing of the monthly target by a few bucks from March 2016 onward.

Note for May 2016:All the images we rehosted and also the continuing growth of the forum, along with the demise of some other forums of IL2, necessitated the move from the cloud to a more stable and faster physical server that allows more data transfer, space, and less performance drop when doing the daily backups.

Note for Mar 2018: After lower data usage reports we are able to slowly let go of some additional data extras from our hosting package, which lowers our monthly target by about $20, and will see if we can save more as we go.

Note for Jan 2019: After lower costs passed on by our provider to us, and lower data usage reports we are able to slowly let go of some additional data extras from our hosting package, which lowers our monthly target by about $20.

S!

Many many thank to the guys who have made a contribution. I have to tell you it is greatly appreciated and very helpful.

As promised , here is a complete list of the SAS's benefactors so far
If I get your Screen-name wrong, just yell. If you have made a donation and I missed it, please post in this thread about it.

woofiedog and Le0ne has come through with great donations, and since we are well covered for Feb, I decided to put these towards the March target.

I am also ammending the target total for each month, to cover a project that will help a worthy historical museum. At the moment the project is still secret only myself, Vtrelut from C6 and the museum management know of it, but details will be forthcoming over the next few months. :)

Big thanx woofiedog and Le0ne! :)

Post by: SAS~CirX on February 18, 2011, 03:46:35 AM
Maico just popped in with a great donation, which is going under the March donations, but is going to help tremendously, since the FTP servers are renewing this month, and that Secret Project I mentioned in the previous post just took a big chunk out of our savings.

As yet I cannot reveal what it is..hehehe!!...I will in a few months. (dont worry, we are not builing a new sim that you'd have to buy lol!)

All I can say now is...if the SAS ever got the opportunity to realy physically help with the preservation and promotion of WW2 aviation history, the closest thing to our hearts...would we do it?

Hell yes. ;)

Cheers Mark!

snoopy also put some bucks into the piggybank today, a great thanks to you my friend, and for the nice message accompanieing it! :)

Thank you guys for donating even when we have reached out monthly target, because with the savings, we may be able to one day move to a better server if needed, as well as do other things to the benifit of this site and of the aviation history world. None of it goes to anything else.

Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on May 31, 2011, 07:41:21 PM
Docholiday from Germany, pjhmaka from Holland, and Ivan le rouge from France got together to make the 1st of June a good one and get us off to an even better flying start than what we began with.

Since the exact date that SAS started is lost to history, and I only know roughly the time, I always considered June 1st as our unofficial birthday. If I am not mistaken, we are 3 years old today! ;D

Cheers guys! Thank you very much.

A thunderstorm of bucks this month?

yes, and quite welcome too, since the mediafire direct download account we are using to host FBDSM and UP3 is currently eating bandwidth like chocolates  :D
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on June 26, 2011, 01:57:50 PM
Got a great donation from S.H today, with a cool message too. I think it is close enough to the end of the month to open next month's tab. Cheers!  :)
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on July 02, 2011, 06:18:18 AM
As always , IKolincak has "officialy" kicked off the month. Thanx bud!

I want to extend a request: We have taken out a mediafire account for direct downloading, to be able to host UP3, FBDSM, DBW, and the new large modact family, all of these are very big files, much too large to host on our already over stressed regular servers.

To give you an idea, a small forum, like some other smaller il2 forums , may on their busiest months use as much as 60GB of tranfer bandwidth.

The SAS Forum uses as much as 120GB on a regular month for the forum alone. The servers hosting much of our smaller downloads regularily clock up up to 200-300GB a month each! Hosting the large stuff now, is eating up about 1 Terrabyte every 20 days or so :o . I dont think this situation will carry on indefinitely, at some stage most players will have downloading the big packs and things will settle.

But untill then, my expenses a month easily outstrip the usual monthly target. So if you are one of the guys who have benifitted from our mediafire direct download account, please consider shooting us a few dollars. :)
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on July 05, 2011, 12:51:34 PM
my big thankyou to 2 German guys and a Spaniard (sounds like a formula 1 team :D ): Snoopy, El_Marta, mik88, 3 relatively quiet guys, and all three among the first members of SAS, with Martin's (El_Marta) going back to July 2009, the birthdate of SAS! In fact, this intrigued me so much I had to go look it up. July 2010 was the time we outgrew our first free sever and everyone had to re-register.(for those interested, this forum as it is was born on 15 July 2009), it existed for about 3 or 4 months before that in different format). He was in fact the 262'nd member of the SAS. Not bad!

cheers guys, and, thankx for the help, and Snoopy, thanks for the message, mate. :)
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: mik88 on July 05, 2011, 01:11:17 PM
I'm Portuguese actually but I've been living in Spain for along time now.

This is my little contribution to thank everyone involved for all the great stuff you keep churning out and for keeping Il-2 very much alive and kicking (and more!). DBW is probably one of the best ideas so far.
Keep it up!!

Cheers to all

Hi Mate

I am on my laptop at the moment and will only be home at the proper PC tonight. So I have not checked any emails or financials since early last night. So if you made one, appologies for not seeing it yet, but if it is there I will be home and see it in a few hours (about a half hour after the grand prix), and immediately come say so. Sorry for the delay mate, but I dont access banks or paypal from the lappytop, and I have not the webmail setup on this one. Ill make a point to look as soon as I can.

I was a little under the weather the past few days, and only now picked up a donation from Hans Svensson, who is AFAIK not a member of the forum, just a guest who enjoys the site. Thank you very much sir! :)

All the best!

Hi Walter

I have gone into paypal and pulle dup a report, and it seems that since 25 november Paypal has stopped sending me email notifications...there are quite a few contributions there that I did not know about, some have even been cancelled by what I think must be irate users. I will sort it out and update the records, and also try to find out why I am not getting the emails anymore.

All the best

As mentioned above there seems to have been a breakdown in Paypal communicating with me, so all donations received after 24 November I was not aware of. My sincere appologies, and herewith the update:

Big thanks for donations for December, from the following guys (screen names used where I could trace them):
Marcos Beltran   
walter solito
oldschoolie
Pierre1946
IKolincak
Blaubär

I will update the first post right away. Again, my appologies, and thanks. I dont know what Paypal is not sending me the emails anymore, but I will get that sorted if I can.

again today IKolincak made a donation, second one for February. As you can see I moved the total targets up, because with the upcoming large DL packages we are putting together, we are going to be eating bandwidth at a much larger rate for a few months. After this weekend the first large DL package should be up, for DBW, and we shall then have a clearer picture.

Cheers Ivan K for the help! :)

Cheers, boss, I prefer Costas, my full version of  name reminds me of despised (by me) political figures in Greece! Yeah, I was never attracted by the notion "someone else's greater misfortunes are your consolation", but, heck, life goes on, and we need to grab the bull by the ... erm, ... horns!

lol, I think I can relate. I had to ask my wife many times to marry me before she agreed. But when she did, I think one of the deciding factors was that her maiden surname of "van Schalkwyk" had been put to permanent shame by a politician here, and she thought that even my terrible last name would be an improvement  ;D

Since I made a little plea for help with the happening and upcoming bandwidth use at our Mediafire pro acount, I got great donations from Jonners, Toasted_Toad and pierre1946, enough to get us some nice bandwidth! And, I see this morning we are closing in on 100 downloads already! WTG guys! So far it all looks succesfull, and more "superpacks" are in the pipeline (for official updates, UP updates, ect...In fact, we may rehost the whole UP3 very soon)

also with cool messages:

Hope this helps towards the costs of hosting the files! Jonners

G'day CirX, This is for all your hard work on DBW (and the other great guys too).You have made this game totally stunning to play, hope it helps with the bandwidth. Cheers mate, Toasted_Toad.

Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on February 07, 2012, 02:52:32 PM
Many members continued to answer the call to help us firm up our available bandwidth at out mediafire account, and I am happy to say it is good as it ever was now. On last glance the new DBW superpack archives are the most requested files on our account, with more than 20 downloads in progress in any one time and almost 200 total downloads served since they were released yesterday.

It is now clear that we will definitely for sure be adding more such big packs. I think starting with a new static download of UP3, complete up to RC4. That will be a big one, so give us a few days! :D

Guys who have helped make this possible throughout today are Peter Gray, Georges44, Marsouin, and Korrigan. Thank you guys, you're the dudes. :)

Markus Maurer sent some well needed buck through today. Well needed because late tonight we are putting out the following "superpacks" for those in need:
 And all of them alreay include the latest direct to drive patches, and no-cd.exe:

4.07m to 4.101m
and
4.07m to 4.11m

And also the following massive ones, both including the latest direct to drive patches and the latest selector of course:

UP3 RC 4 all included with newest selector
and
4.07m to DBW 1.71 (including stock updates, UP3RC4,DBW, Direct to drive...everything you need)

There is a struggle with one problematic file we are taking a few hours to sort out (cross loading a transplant from another location), and then it will all get posted. The guy to realy thank for putting the above together is Storebror.

Cheers!

"We cannot process this transaction because this PayPal account has been closed. For more information, please contact the seller."

Post by: SAS~CirX on July 01, 2012, 08:03:13 PM
OK, what happened was last week when we battled the hack, I changed all my passwords and log ins everywhere, including my paypall primary email addy. We also replaced all the pages on the site and others with previous saved and safe versions. I think somewhere here we either uploaded an old donation button pointing to an old email addy, or forgot to update it with the new addy.

It should be fine now, and take you to a paypal donations page saying "Help keep the SAS flying in 2012" or something like that. Please let me know how it goes. And, sorry for the hold up.

cheers!

CirX,

I just tried to put in a donation, but PayPal rejected my card.  I use discover card’s one time numbers for all online purchases.   I tried twice and each time I get a message telling me to use another card.

A while back I had one of my regular card numbers stolen on line (had to completely cancel the card to get it stopped) and for a while that bad experience affected my credit rating.   So I’m very hesitant to use another card online.

Wish I could help, but even though PayPal lists Discover, apparently they don’t take it.

Hi guys

I have been away for a while so I need to thank quite a few people who have sent donations since 24 Oct. In case you are wondering, all donations still do, as always, go to wards the SAS site. We are working at eventualy transferring the conduit towards the new management team with Anto, but in the meantime do not fear, all is still above board and Anto and I communicate directly about everything.

there has been enough donations coming in to cover January and February 2013 easily, also since we were already ahead, having covered December by the end of October last year. So, a great thank you to everyone who contributed, and especialy those guys who do so regularily.

Here are the names of the guys who are paying for all our pleasure, for January anf February (remember if you did not send your screename with your donation, we cannot always find it, and then we use the name on the donation instead):

IKolincak (3 donations)
Taypay
wedge1047
Hanseat
Ian goode (I think this is Rogue?)
jfloren
Jeff White
Daniel Clancy
Ace (J Sanches)
dumpti
fatty finn (BIG donation)
Daniel Richebon
Thomas Schäfer (BIG donation)
Gustav Lindström
Mark Jackson
RVNFAC (David)
philippe peeters
Jean-Christophe ARLANDIS

cheers guys, and very sorry for the delay in response.

all the best

Apologies for not updating the list and thanking all the donors. Piet and I still haven't done a proper handover of the accounts as both of us have been very busy. Regardless, your donations are still keeping this site running. Thank you to all who still kindly offer their financial support here.

We'll post a list of thank yous soon enough.

Here is the up to date list of donations received since Jul 9. It has been a difficult month for the forum and I think this is reflected, but we are still good.
I want to take this time to say a very special thank you to Ivan Kolincak, who has supported this forum and kept us afloat for a long time. Even when all other are struggling, he is always there, every month, and I just want to say Ivan, you are a very special and great friend to this forum, and to this community and game. Thank you. And on behalf of everyone who plays IL2 modded with stuff from this forum, thank you.

Donations received jul 9 to Sept 30:

We have been remis in updating this list over December, so appologies for that. This means there is a long list of people to thank for donations. Recently, after the demise of imageshack, SAS~Storebror did an extensive and difficult rescue of all images hosted by our members there and rehosted and relinked most of them on our server. To ensure that this was possible, we bought additional discspace on the server, which was only possible because of the great support we receive here from our members.

So without further ado, many many thanks to the following people (Usernames we used where they were included or traceable):

Kraut1
Ikolincak (two donations)
Becky Mellinger
londo16 (huge donation!)
Airbourne
ordway

Ouch! I see it has been two months since I updated this list: I was sure I only did it yesterday! My dairy fooled me! The dog ate my homework!  :D

Sorry dudes, but here it is, the list of guys who have contributed donations to keep this forum spinning since June 02:

Firstly, in this time, we received 3 donations of $30 each from Ivan Kolincak, who has also been our most consistent supporter ever. And once again we want to thank him for this. He is a big reason why we are still around!

We also got great donations from the following gents:

Mars1986
Xavier Uzomah
Airbourne
Trainer
Oldsalt
darky1958

Thank you very much guys! It is great to know that come end of the month and come the renewal cycle for the server contract, we are covered.

As always, we reflect the full amounts donated in the summation and tally in the first post. Always, the 5% transaction fee that Paypal charges to each donation received, are made up by the SAS~ editors. Also, in Aug, we made our yearly SAS Forum donation of $50 to the Wikipedia Foundation.

All the best!

We need to mention a Special Thanks to Ivan (IKolincak) and Merfyn (Airbourne), who between the two of them carried almost  half of the forums costs every month for the past few months. Thank you very much gentlemen! I hope other members also appreciate everytime they are flying around in the virtual skies :) Airbourne, IKolincak, feel free to take a bow!

SAS~CirX, how can we donate if we don't have or use PayPal? I once had an account until it was hacked. None now and not really crazy about starting one up again.
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~Storebror on January 02, 2017, 10:52:20 PM
I'm not Piet, but let me answer nevertheless ;)

It's no big deal to donate without having a Paypal account.
Right when you click on the "donate" button, it will take you to a page where you either login to your Paypal account to donate, or enter your Credit Card details to donate directly from that card, without having to have any Paypal account yourself.

Thanks a lot to all our generous donors!

Best regards - Mike

Hy, I want to donate some euros whith my credit card (electronic ). I Try it here but I can't because I must have the exact amount  in euro no in dollars. Help me please.

We have updated the donations page. Please revisit it http://www.sas1946.com/Contribute.htm (http://www.sas1946.com/Contribute.htm) and find the new page, with two paypal buttons, one marked for USD, one marked for Euro.

PS: The "exact amount" you donate on your side is never what is received in any event, so one may make an approximation in USD based on a current rate of exchange. We pay the transaction fee. The transaction will anyway appear on your Credit Card Statement in Euro (Though I understand in some EU countries, like Germany, if any transaction amount in your account is not an exact rounded prime number, you get socially ostracized and officially audited, so I completely understand the issue).

For the small  sub $100 amounts we work with here this is usually not a big problem for people to just guesstimate the dollar amount. Paypal charges a steep transaction fee for donations anyway. Through Credit card is an even greater transaction fee. These fees do not get subtracted from the amount donated though. Instead the SAS Editors make up the transaction fee costs, and the member gets credited for the entire donation as they intended it.

Donating in Dollars also helps keep these thank-you credits simpler. Once we start receiving exchange-rate linked amounts, you are going to see some funny amounts in the target sections in the first page of this post lol :). But that is not the end of the world. We have learned to count (right after learning java).

S!  ;)

Hi

Unfortunately,afaik, japanese law prohibits the making of donations through paypal. We could set up another type of payment button, but that is a bit naughty, and in the end, not worth the chance of us loosing the account altogether. Thanks for the support though :)

Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~CirX on March 12, 2017, 01:31:02 AM
Another month has passed. We have started getting donations through the requested Euro button also :) There are some problems with this as Paypal wont reflect the dollar amount of it directly without upgrading to a business account. So there is no accurate way to calculate what the actual dollar amounts credited to the account it. What they do is to have a phantom separate Euro Balance where the Euro donations are shown, with the total final balance in USD, and thus no way to calculate each donation separately.

But that aside, thank you all very much! We will take it whatever way it comes, and we are very grateful. What we are going to do from now on is just pick a slightly lower exchange than current, so a similar rate like what you'd get on PP or another merchant account, calculate the Euro donations to USD with that and round it to the nearest (so we dont have to deal in cents). Hope that will be OK for everyone.

So, a big thank you to the following guys for donations received over the last month:

Kraut1
GEORGES44
IKolincak
majortom

Thank you very much gents! Beers on...you! :)
Salute!

Got lots of donations in Euros, so that system seems to be working pretty well.

So, without further ado, here are the men of the hour:

Bruce Mitchell
Dick Hoogenraad
1941UH
Korrigan
IKolincak
gmkump
printenduevel

Just a note: If you did not put a notation on the donation mentioning your screenname here, and your paypal email addy is different from the one you used to register here, we unfortunately have no easy way to find your screenname, and then we use the real name as on the donation. Hope this is OK. If not, just message me and I'll edit the info as needed.

All the best for the next month!

Another month has passes, and as I sit here with one eye on the last hours of Le Mans, it is time to tally up the donations received since last time, and to thank the guys who made them! There have been quite a few over the past month, and some of them were big donations. Thank you very much dudes!

They are:

Jazzmaster 
1941UH     
Airbourne
gmkump   
Darky1958   
REDVO   
Bowie57 

Again, big thank you gentlemen. Cheers and Salutations!

Remember if you make a donation to add your screenname to the comments section of the donation, otherwise, if we cannot find your email on our memberlist, we have to use the name on your paypal account. If this already happened and you would like your real name changed out for your screenname in this thread, just PM me and we will fix it.

All the best!

Another Month has passed. In South Africa we are in mid winter, but hopefully for the guys in the northern hemi it is a bit better.

Sadly we received just 3 donations the past month, and two of them from one guy.

Ivan donated twice, once for every month as usual, so a big thank you as always to you (IKolincak), and we also received a nice donation from resistor, thank you Matt! I have spread that one out over two months as well since the total target for the previous month was less than the total received.

Till next month, be cool and be safe!

It is almost the end of August, and time once again to thank those who have contributed towards the upkeep of this forum. Thank you very much guys, it is greatly appreciated!

The dudes are:

Toasted_Toad, who was interestingly also the very first person to donate to SAS back in 2009
IKolincak , as always, the best supporter any group could wish for
Airbourne, also a regular supporter
And klrster, who is also not a first time donator.

Thank you very much guys, cheers and salutes!

Our donations thank-you's were due to be updated today, but unfortunately we have to postpone it for at least a week. We apologize for this as I know that some guys are waiting for it. Sadly, we had some issues with our paypal account, and we have to wait for them to be finalized before we can accurately do the next round of updates. We are also not clear on what restrictions Paypal may have placed on the account during the incident, or might in future.

What happened is that a junior member here made a donation in August, after the previous thank-you's. Then changed his mind, but instead of just asking us to do a quick refund, he chose to lodge a case through his bank, at Paypal, accusing us of fraudulently stealing his $30.

We authorized a refund through paypal after being made aware of the accusation (after also as per usual, paying for the initial transaction fee), who took a while to sort it out with the member's bank, and who have now informed us of the penalty amount we have to pay to return to good standing, since we chose not to dispute it. We are now waiting for these transactions to go through, and our paypal account balances to be updated.

We did contact the specific member via PM here, and while we did notice he had been online every day since we PM'd him, he has chosen not to reply to us.

Dear SAS
I tried to donate today, by credit card,
but could not get it to work.
The box for "home telephone" may be the problem.
It stays red, no matter what phone number I enter ,
and I get a message saying more information needed.
I live in Australia
Title: Re: Donating to SAS
Post by: SAS~Storebror on February 09, 2018, 07:39:33 AM
Hi fatty_finn,

When you are entering your phone number on PayPal the country code should not be included.
As you choose your country in the payment dialog, PayPal will automatically add this for you.
Since you are probably including the country code that is why you are getting an error message.

E.g. instead of entering "+612<something>" for Sydney, just enter "2<something>" instead. Note that there's also no leading "0".

Cheers!
Mike

Tried to donate via paypal last night, but I'm not sure if it "took." I got some sort of acknowledgement from paypal in my email, but nothing posted at the bank so far. Please advise. If I screwed that up, I need to try again. Thank you.  8)

Hi guys

Due to a telephone line theft I have had very limited connectivity the last week (I can check in for short periods using a cellpnone hotspot). I can just let you know that since the previous update, 3 donations have been received, Ikolincak, Airbourne and merco911. Will update donations around the 20th again. Ehood, I will yell if that donation of yours clears and I get a notification on this side.

Using a more visible donation button on the entrance screen or home page might help some. And thanks for the BAT! It's awesome! Even the manual was a significant piece of work; I can't imagine all the man-hours that went into 80 gb of code!!!! Well, i'd say SAS and all the contributors have a well earned rest coming, :) Best regards ladies and gentlemen...

Happy new yeat to everyone!

It has been a month since the last update. Sadly, only two donations were received since then, they are from

IKolincak, macgiver

Ivan, as usual, thank you very much for making it a monthly contribution. He has been responsible of many years for more than a third of the cost of keeping this forum alive, and as always, deserves a special thank you.

Thank you also to Piotr (macgiver), who is also a pretty regular donator.

We are happy to report we can once again this year lower out monthly target, but please do not think that that makes everything free. What we do not reach from donations, comes from the pockets of the site admins. So if you have a few bucks to spare, do not hesitate to give this forum a hand.

All the best!

I donated 30 euros on 27th January but am not sure if it was received as there has been no acknowledgement which I thought would have been appropriate by now. If there is a problem please let me know.

Hi Chris

It was planned for this weekend, so I usually sit and recon the donations and update the thread on Sunday morning. You will be on it for sure.
