More Server Woes, And A Donation Request

We are still not totally sure. It is locked down pretty tight, and because we are not sure, is the reason it will be formatted and rebuilt.

 

That's the part that bothers me, and you're right -reformatting is probably the only real option you have to prevent future occurrences. I'll send another pittance when payday arrives. :)

Glad to hear the ISP was willing to work with you! But, I'm sorry to hear (aside from is happening to begin with) that it means so much extra work for you, reformatting and all the associated headaches.

 

Sent along another little pittance ( :blush ) this morning (or will, when Mum drops it in the mail on the way to work), I just wish I'd won a lottery recently so it could be substantial... but a little here and there from many should add up!

 

I see lots of responses, guess that's just another indicator of what a greyt board this is, and what greyt folk work here...

That means that you made a donation last year on May 18 or thereabouts, and THAT donation is about to expire. But our supporter status is tied to our most recent donations, so if you just made a donation for the server woes, you're good for another year.

Thanks for all you do for us.

Even after reading all the other posts, and thinking to myself, "don't forget to add username, don't forget to add username" I forgot to add my user name. :blush :blush Last name is Barnes. Thank you, Jeff!

the 2 links I have on the forum (bottom of the main page, and within the User Control Panel) will both automagically include your username. The link I posted here in this topic will not. There is no way to include the code within the post to do that for security purposes.

 

I can find most users who do not include a username, but it just takes some additional time.

I can check for a match in the email address, though many, myself included use a different email account for paypal stuff, so that check often fails.

Then I look for past donations based on the email address, or the paypal listed name. For previous supporters, that works well.

Next I ask the moderators, Trudy and Wendy can usually put a real name to a username.

 

The next part of the equation is trying to personalize my acknowledgment with your real name. Many family's use a single paypal account, and I know if I see a donation from Bob Smith, and a username of LexiesMom, then it imost likely did not come from Bob :lol

So I begin a search for the first name of the user.

I check the profile

I check the signature

I ask the moderators :lol

 

I also try to verify everything in the ticket, my own notification email, and I enter it into a local spreadsheet for tracking in case of a server crash.

 

It can be a trying process at times.
