Fundraiser July 16-22, 2006
EDIT: EXTENDED UNTIL JULY 30TH !!


I'm offering up a challenge to users of this site to take a moment in the next few days to donate some money to Haken, he being the fellow who created this board and has maintained it for 4+ years and counting.

FollowMal brought up some good points recently about everyone's anxiety for the future of FFF.net when she was down for several days earlier in June. Many (myself included) could not imagine trucking on without this place to hang out and scheme and dream and dissect our most beloved FF/S Jossiness.

So, please click on either the Amazon or PayPal links on the left hand sidebar on the homepage any time during this week, July 16-22. The donations go to Haken, to use on any website improvements he sees fit to throw money at. No amount too small! Except for maybe, uhm, zero (nothin', inta nothin', carry the...).

Let's help support this site that we beat up on a regular basis! And for Haken, who in true Kaylee fashion keeps her flying.

-Hera

Here's the original discussion in the Serenity Summer Campaign thread:

I sent some coin just a couple of weeks ago.
I try to make a regular donation, since I feel I would be lost without this site.

Any idea if Haken will be adding links for pre-ordering the Firefly Visual Companions? I have been holding off ordering them in hopes that he will so that I can benefit this site.

Thank you Hera.

This kicks off our official week for doing this folks. We all know the site has been in jeopardy lately... I myownself would be lost without my "home"!

I'm going to donate this week. Haken has mentioned a move for the site in the next 6 months, perhaps we can help lessen down time by helping out ahead of time.

I got some extra cashey money this week, I want to say thank you to Haken for giving us our shiny home!

I'd be just about all kinds of lost without this place to call 'home' and all you guys around.

I've been holding off ordering The Existential Joss Whedon waiting for a link so that I too can help Haken with my purchase.

After our June scare...I would urge my fellow browncoats to use their paypal accounts and support Haken. It's worthy, it's easy, and hell, it's just the right thing to do.

I haven't donated for months, so this thread has been a timely reminder, thank you.

But a strange thing happened when I went to donate via Paypal... an extra amount (10% of my donation) was automatically added for Post and Packing. I wasn't able to remove it.

Anyone got any ideas how and why this happened?

I guess it may always have been this way with donations to this site and I've just not noticed it.

Sorry about that, BritChick. I'm not sure. Mayhap it's some sort of handling charge, but I don't remember them applying that to any other purchase types.

I'll look into it later today.

Back with some info, britchick. Seems PayPal charges the amount for their involvement in the transaction, much like a fee you get from an ATM. On this side of the pond, the charge is called "Shipping and Handling". Seems the handling part is what the charge is for.

Anyone have a similar experience with the Amazon link?

OK, we're half-way through the week, folks, and not sure if we're doing well or not on the fundraising.

If you donate, please post here and let us know! Or if you have a comment or story on how FFF.net made your life a funner place to be.

We need the bumps! Appreciate the help.

Ok, just donated! And that's a good idea, Hera, telling folks how FFF.net has had an effect on our life.

When I saw Firefly on SciFi and fell head over heels for it... I immediately got on line and ordered the series.

Then I googled Firefly and the first thing that came up was this wonderful place. I wasn't here one day and I already felt at home and wanted to stay, in fact knew I'd stay.

I'm holdin' til Mal gets back... right here...
literally!

Hey Kurya, anytime you can donate would be fine!

We're extending the fundraiser for another week, to give wandering 'coats a chance to maybe mosey through and notice this thread.

This thread sure is hard to keep up on the main page. We're a busy lot, us FFF folks.

Money money money for Haken!

Post those shiny stories about FFF.net if you got 'em! Any inspiration would be a boon right now.

Thank you Chindi, for the bumps too. Sometimes I can't watch the board like I should.

It being Sunday and all with me not making it to church.....of course , seems to me that a bit of tithing is in order. And sure enough, the time to donated has extended.

Now, isn't that special ??

I donated! Thanks Haken!

I noticed that the Amazon honor system seems to charge a smaller service fee. I had never used it before, but it was easy (I had an Amazon account already).

Also, I *think* if you link from FFF.net's amazon link, a portion of *any* purchase *during that session* goes to Haken, and an even higher cut if it's one of the featured items. I am not absolutely sure of that, but based on reading some amazon stuff, I think that's how it works.

Thanks again Haken, and I hope everyone can give a little coin for this corner of our 'verse.

Well fellow FFFers, I think we managed to get a little money sent Haken's way. Thank you for supporting our little grass-roots fund raiser.

Thanks to those we know about who donated. You folks make me proud to call myself a Browncoat. If’n your name ain’t on this list, it’s ‘cause you didn’t tell us.

See, I was thinking more of Book from 'Our Mrs Reynolds', where after YoSafBridge had made her get away and they're talkin about the 'Goodnight Kiss' effect,"So there was kissin',.. " and he casually looks over at Mal and says 'Isn't that special ? ',just to remind him of their earlier talk. But of course, never can pass up the Church Lady on a Sunday morning either. Works either way!
