I myself, at this point am putting myself through college, working full-time and paying many bills. However I believe $35/year is a very small price to pay for a community as great and helpful as this. If Jeremy didn't start this site (I assume with his own money) we wouldn't have a place to get help and share our knowledge. It's sites like this that make Linux. I'm happy to contribute.

Have you set things up for money orders yet? If not then I will not be able to become a contributing member. Why? Because I do not have a bank account and my credit is to shity for a credit card. Which you need one or the other for a PayPal account. I set up my account, then called their toll free number and found this out. So I cancled the account, can't use it anyways. Sorry. I had the money put to the side for this and I planned on getting the 30 dollar e-mail on top of that. If there is another way please let me know. If not then that's that.

I second this.

I believe I asked about this over a year ago, and Jeremy said he would look into it. Really though, accepting money orders is the only way many of us poor folks (read: no CC) can contribute $

I've only been using this board for a week, and I am already happy to part with $35 for a years membership. Is there anyway of disabling the automatic renewal payment? Can I cancel the renewal after joining?

Well depending on how Busy he is it may not happen. I hope it does but if it doesn't it is understandable albeit frustrating.

1) If the only way you can contribute is via a non-online method, please contact me. I don't have a system in place for this, but I'll work with each member individually.

2) You can cancel the auto renew the day you signup, if you'd like.

Can you outline what your donations / contributing member fees go towards? And yes, buying you lunch is an exceptable answer considering the amount of work you do :P As long as it's not 100% I suppose Thanks!

All money, whether it be Contributing Member funds, donations or ad revenue go toward the cost of running the site. At some point it would be good if they could also cover things like LinuxWorld costs and items of that nature. I have plans for funds once we get beyond the covering 100% of expenses mark, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Quite simply, there is no other site on the internet which has moved me to donate money towards it. That is how good LQ is and long may it remain so. The community feel is one of its strongest aspects and I am sorry to learn that contributions and advertising do not cover costs. I truly hope that funding is heading in that direction. As a poster commented above, with the exchange rate at the level it is for us brits, even though I am also a student, 20 is nothing when I can easily spend that in one night. Well done to Jeremy and all the mods here are LQ.
Regards
Chris

I believe asking a (opt in) nominal fee to keep a wonderful service going needs no justification. Many of my long outstanding problems have been resolved within days of using this forum. Now to my question, I too wish to become a contributing member but hold no credit cards (don't like them) I live in the UK and would appreciate any advice on how I can forward any monies.

I look forward to my warm, fuzzy feeling...keep up the good work LQ.

PayPal and Amazon are also payment options at this time.
