Topic: Donations to site?
started by: Magpie
Posted by Magpie on July 16 2002,10:38 amI have been active using this site while traveling on business trips for caching, though not as many caches in other areas I have noticed that the ones there are seem to always be fun.
I enjoy the cache page set-up quite a bit and the site is a very high quality addition to the sport. This said I was wondering how do I go about making a donation to help out with costs of use as I can see that server space does not come free. The fun I enjoy is well worth a few bucks from time to time to help out. I figure a movie or a amusement park would take my money as quick as I could get it out of my pocket, and I would much rather it go to the folks that do this for us and have yet to ask anything in return. I am not much for talking and would prefer to just keep caching, but thank you all for everything.
Posted by Road Kill on July 16 2002,3:08 pmWelcome Magpie. The best contribution you can make is posting your hides here and keeping in touch on the forums. OK so you claim to be not much on talking, but the ice is broken and everyone here is friendly. This is still a cash free cache site, so the more caches the better. The only danger here is that your face could freeze with a perminate grin. It's true, I've had the dang thing a year and a half now.
Posted by Quinn on July 16 2002,4:46 pmActually Roadkill is a bit wrong...the contribution you can make is a million dollars and a new corvette for each of the crew members here at navicache, but we understand if you can only send the cars
The site is a free site and we do this by any small amounts of money sent our way via donations from people such as yourself. We don't ask for money as we dont like the feel of a paysite and dont want people feeling pressured. But if you think you would like to help out you can go to this link < CACHE PAGE (SEARCH) > and at the bottom you will find a paypal link where you can send your donations. These funds go far towards server time as well as any enhancements we need to make. As the site gets bigger and bigger so does the space required to run it. Every dime taken in goes directly back into the site.
Posted by Guest on Dec. 07 2002,4:18 pmThe Hughes Family has been using this site for almost a year now and would like to make a donation to this site. Navicache
has brought our family closer and there is never a boring moment in our house. I use Navicache to the fullest. To getting the boys in shape for sports, to keep myself in shape,
and just plain fun. Upinyachit has enough pictures and logs
to use up space and just want to contribute to our favorite site.
Is there any other way to make a donation other then pay pal? A money order or a personal check is what I had in mind.
Is that ok, and can I get the Navicache address so I know where to send my donation.

Not sure if Quinn has contacted you yet with an address, but you can use a persoanl check to pay via the PayPal link.
