I’m not being critical, but why does this site go down for 2-3 days? Makes me very anxious!
The server at the ISP is inadequate to hold the necessary data. We are working on upgrading the capacity of the host hard drive. If you would like to help with the upgrade cost, please check out our Patreon page, https://www.patreon.com/ketogenicforums
Paul, can I give a one-time gift?
One time gifts are also accepted.
Will do; thanks, Paul.
Somewhat confused. Is a “custom pledge” a one-time pledge?
You’d have to ask the Patreon people that question; I don’t know the answer.
I would be quite pleased to provide financial support. Hopefully some other way (e.g., direct Paypal payment?) become available at some point besides Patreon…
If the forum’s leadership ever establishes a direct path for financial support, please advise.
Meanwhile, you have our continued deep gratitude for everything you do for the keto forum!
Supported. Best wishes with the upgrades!
PayPal would be nice. I’ll pass on the idea.
Thanks. All it takes is an email address of an individual trusted to forward funds appropriately. Perhaps set up a KetoForum-administered email account registered with Paypal to make collecting funds more straightforward.
You do this by doing a donation one time then canceling the membership. I pay by Paypal and support both the forum and Daisy’s podcast.
I’ve been a Patreon member for several months now hoping it would help make things more stable.
Well, this has been embarrassing. I’d have bet my life that last December I made an annual contribution using PayPal and I was going to check whether the address still worked. After searching all my old emails, I searched PayPal. It’s not there. Apparently I’ve been skating this year.
I’ll fix that.
Did anything ever come of that, or is it strictly by Patreon?
I pay several creators via Patreon, using my PayPal as payment option.
Ah, got it! Thx.
As you may have gathered, I’ve never used Patreon, but I’ve had a PayPal account since about 1998. I’m used to it, and they’ve worked as I’d like to see for over 20 years, now. For the most part.
