PM those questions to me and we'll try to work it out. Sorry your attempt was not addressed sooner.

Why do queries about the topic of donations need to use PM features?

Because it may involve finding a Member that he trusts to receive cash and donate it for him and then Salty can put the donation in his name. Whoever the good Samaritan is may not want to publicize it.

You dont need a PayPal to pay to a PayPal account I believe, In the start here before I move permanent to the Philippines I pay 50USD monthly. That was before all this "double elite platinum diamante" things.
Personally I don't like a system like this, but that's me. 

I hope all that can or like to donate to the forum! And click on the add sometimes.

Couldn't agree more. Perhaps I can offer some insight on this subject.

Recall just before Xmas the subject of LinC donations was brought up. After some back and forth I offered up a compilation post which included questions and concerns that myself and others had on this subject. Right about then a heavy handed mod stepped in and posted a fair amount of snark about non donars especially ones who questioned the process. Perhaps some responded to the snark and donated----others perhaps not----for myself I just faded away.

In my compilation of questions/concerns post two of the questions were of my own.To date my questions were never answered. As I don't live in Cebu nor have a PayPal account, I believe that my queries had some merit.

Question #1   How can people that live in Leyte donate?

Question #2   Can I make my donation in PHP?

Never got a response back so had to conclude that the LinC fund raising season was over.

How would one contribute to LinC without a PayPal account?

Can you contribute PHP instead of USD?

In the past people have used Western Union. Others have given to another member with a PayPal account to summit their donation for them. 

Payments have to be in US dollars, or at least converted to US dollars during the transaction.

I'm not really involved with the actual transfer of funds. Once a donation is made, the owner contacts me with the information. Of course if a member donated via the donation link, I can see the information on the logs. A member can choose to be anonymous, but that just means others can't see the donation. Of course when you receive an upgrade to sponsor or a jeweled sponsor, it should be obvious you donated. 

I'm sorry if you felt my response to your post was not responsive. Especially since I answered your questions in 11 minutes and you even gave me a Thanks for it.

However you did respond later in the same thread, implying your questions weren't being answered.

When a persons asks a reasonable question about donating monies to LinC then a reasonable attempt should be made to get an answer.The response that I often saw to questions asked has been (paraphrasing here) blah,blah,blah well anyway STFU and donate you cheap F..ks. This is certainly not a very effective way to convince some one to do anything.

IMO this fund raising thing should have been sorted out and in stone years ago.The Donation Stats board as I posted earlier is ambiguous at best. Are there other ways to donate other than PP---no answer. Can you donate in PHP---unknown.How can people in Leyte donate---a mystery.How much is needed to get LinC into the black---no one will say. And finally when asked about who owns LinC so they might know where their money is going---NUNYA (a Dafey-ism, LOL). All these questions and more are being asked 5 days before Xmas when people are often their most generous.

If the owner is truly losing money on LinC then IMO he/she/ has no one to blame but themselves.

I stick to by what I said back in Dec after rereading it.

I have no PP account nor know anyone that does so your suggestion wasn't helpful. I probably missed the WU part of your answer since I never used their services.The other questions that you cite in my post were a compilation of questions asked in the thread that were never answered---most of which I had no concerns about but obviously the person asking them did.

I think Bama makes a good point.  If you DON'T have PayPal or a major western credit card.. then really.. how DO you make a donation?  We live here in the Philippines where people send money by LBC and others.  I think there needs to be some way for someone without a credit card or PayPal to pay.

Several people, including myself, volunteered to make the Paypal payment for him if he got the money to us.

I use a prepaid Visa card from my BPI bank. You just load it with whatever amount I want on it. I don't keep much on it so if someone hacked it they won't get far or rich. No problem with it since I got it a few years ago.

Do you normally send monies to screen names of people that you don't know found on a website ?

For your sake, I certainly hope not.

So with all the options that have been laid out for Members to donate, if they are still having issues using one I would thank them and say don't sweat it. We'll be fine and you're welcome to peruse the Forum anyway.

Because any more than that is just going to be far too painful and difficult to contemplate...

Sometimes you just have to have a little faith. 

Tell me which way you would like to contribute and I'll see what I can do.

I assume that you are being sarcastic when you say that - since it is not rocket science.

If someone doesn't want to donate  it is very easy to find an excuse- any excuse- why they  don't .   [ ie I dont want to send money to Salty Dog because I know that's not your real name.]   [ or I want a fully audited copy of Linc's last 10 years SEC and IRS filings !! etc ]

Well guess what - no one is asking you to send money to Salty Dog. But if you are honest about wanting to send money you will instantly be given the name of a real live bona fide living breathing person !!   So please don't come up with these obviously contrived excuses .

From what some people have said it seems that on occasion the mods/admins/owner have dropped the ball and not facilitated a donation. I have been assured by the very highest authority that that will never happen again !!!  

So it seems that there are no more valid excuses .

I don't think Bama was talking about sending money to me. I thought he was talking about sending money to someone else, who would then send it to LinC.

Davaoeno trusted me to handle P30,000 in cash that another member owed him for a deposit on a car. I think I may have met him once before that. In fact the member that gave me the $30,000 was taking a chance as well.

He was talking about Roger . I just used  you as a generic example . 

 

In the 9? years i have been on this forum I have only heard of one person soliciting funds which were not paid as expected and that person is no longer with us so I feel pretty safe sending a paltry $30 to a Linc member.  [ As Don said we trusted him with  a 30,000 Php deposit  to facilitate the sale of my car in Davao to a member in Cebu ]

Roger, the guy with his own tennis court, already has more money than he could ever spend anyway...:P

My screen name is my name, and it certainly wouldn't do our businesses any good to get a bad name for scamming some kano out of his hard earned $15.

I do say that with a twinge of sarcasm.

To pay without creating a PayPal account, scroll down and click on the Pay with a credit or debit card link. 5. Select your payment option (credit card or debit card) and fill out the form, then click the orange button at the bottom when you're done.

Yeppity do Ian ...I was being sarcastic ...and you are correct with the above statement ...to give or not to give is one thing ........but when the same whiny ass pops up in every thread about this with the same whiny ass shit ....you just have to admit there is a smell to it , simple as that... the rest of the guy's have been more than accommodating to it but my opinion is why bother , it isn't going to change things by being nice to this clown , you are simply wasting your time .....beepity beepity ...thats all folks...

(I am sober and coherent , just sick of this rot)

Given my not to reliable memory I set my donation up as a once a year re-occurring payment.

If I ever stop participating I'll have to remember to delete it :tongue_01:

This year I got a 'possible scammer' alert - bank trying to tell me something :scratch_head:
