It's not often we ask for something from our members, in fact while we've had a donation spot on the site for some time, we rarely mention it. Our philosophy is to try and fund the site via sponsors as much as possible. However, in order to upgrade the site (a direct benefit to all of our members) we have run into additional costs that our income from our sponsors simply doesn't cover. While we are busy looking for new sponsors, we have decided to start a fundraiser among our members in an attempt to raise additional funds to help with the site upgrade.

You can donate in 2 different ways:
1) On the Home Page fill in your donation amount in the box below this column and click PayPal Donate

2) Click Here To Donate

Those who donate will receive a special badge next to their name:


They will also receive our gratitude in helping to move this site forward and improve the functionality and capability for all. All funds received will be put towards the site upgrade, an endeavor that is well into 4 digits in cost if all goes well. We will likely run this campaign for a couple of months, but should we somehow receive more funds than are required, any extra funds will be used for future prize giveaways and/or other site enhancements.

Please take a moment to consider that we don't charge for memberships here and that there is a vast amount of helpful information here available to everyone worldwide essentially for free. We don't require VIN numbers of exclusive club handshakes to be a part of Planet-9. Won't you help Planet-9 grow and improve by making a donation today?

:thanks:

I should mention that I have awarded the badges of honor to everyone who has donated thus far as of this post. As other donations come in I will work as quickly as I can to give out the awards to each member!
:cheers:

Here, I posted a picture of what he would look like. Now you will be able to recognize him.



P.S. I am in also.

$25 sent via Paypal.

Cheaper than a lousy dinner your waistline doesn't need at some stupid restaurant. And way more fun.

I should be in marketing.

I'm in. A bargain for the amount of helpful information and how-to articles. This forum has saved me thousands in mechanic's bills by showing me how and giving me confidence to do things myself. Among other things, I was able to successfully install a Wavetrac differential by myself.

$28.55 sent via PayPal ($25 U.S. plus the pesky 14.2% surtax to convert Canada bux to American...LOL). In my view, this is one of the more informative and better run automotive forums, and I'm happy to support it.

Hey Ken I want to donate, is there any other way than just Paypal? Would I need to open a Paypal account?

Yes when you go to PayPal click that you don't have an account and just want to pay with a credit card. PayPal accepts all major cards. In the paid subscription area of the site there might be an Authorize. Net option as well, I think there is and they take all major cards as well.

Wasn't able to open the click here to donate link page, weird :(.

Guess since I am currently overseas there is a firewall or something in between preventing the page from loading properly.

Just donated via PayPal directly.

If I'm being honest... I think this site is actually going to end up COSTING me a LOT of money I may not have otherwise spent. So... umm.. thanks? :D

That aside... I just sent you a few bucks. :)

I donated on Saturday. No badge so far. :burnout:
YEah that was before the campaign officially started so what I'm going to do when I get back in front of my main computer is go back through all donors for January 2014 and give them the badge as well. I'm on the road and just able to deal with the new donations coming in at the moment. Thanks for your support!
