    We have the biggest international community.. any cheap server and we wil have to upgrade again. Changed server like 3 times.

    Since it's managed I have much less to do, security wise. Furthermore Alizee-Fanpage is on it as well. The Gallery too and that uses a lot of bandwidth....

    Maybe I should rent a server in the states, due to US-Euro currency but I just don't have time and the Server has been stable...

    So yeah, I could risk going to a cheaper version but I don't think anyone woudl benefit from it.

    160 is what needs to be paid in total, i will take off my part of the costs from the total price. It's now 140.

    In case Alizee will. retire, I hope not, I def will go back as I can't finance this myself....
    Just wondering I Donated thru the link and Paypal, but the amount on screen didnt go up, just wondering why, and also I think those that do donate should get some sort of symbol next to there name, Ive seen it in other forums im on and in a way it encourages others to get this.

    Cheers Steve

    I have to confirm that something actually went through Paypal... otherwise everyone would just donate but nothing actualy was donated :-) We would have millions of fake dollars :-)

    Ok, well my automatic donation did go through this month and I have no idea if that was part of the total there. It still shows 50Eur. It sounds like you, Riccardo, are going to manually update the amount. I did the thing you said and clicked on the amount, though I don't understand why. So, whatever. I think I'll go back and increase my amount since I'm using cheap American dollars. (our currency will go back up in value. You'll see.)

    I hope some people noticed the message from Riccardo regarding losing some members who donate to the site. If this continues AF will be lost so we really need anyone to give a little if they can, doesn't have to be much, we all know how tight things can be, but the thought of the forum going offline doesn't bear thinking about does it.

    subscribed? I think that means that you intend to send a donation/payment at a regular interval for a specified period of time. It should give you that information and options if you do it with PayPal. The advantage to that for you is that you don't have to remember and take the time to do it each month.

    Hey, i wanted to donate too, but everyone knows i don't have a card.. yet. Everyone knows that i beg people to buy me things from different sites and then i send them the money... Now, with everyone having that "VIP" under their name, i feel bad..

    No one should feel guilty because of this. We know people like yourselves are great Lili fans, and donating to the site and seing good people on it is reward enough in my opinion. You can buy us all a beer in Paris to make up for it.

    Just kidding.
