Meldrew Just received this email and as I have not recently donated, thought it might be worth posting in case freeflarum has been hacked
No don’t worry, it’s just been slightly fecked by upgrades. I updated a post and you got a longform notification of database code words, not translated into what probably would look like “there has new a new post re donations”. The one below in Announcements.
All donations go direct to them (and you put a note saying Coffeetime), no member will ever be solicited for subscriptions by e-mail. I don’t even know who donates. I just get an e-mail like this, and I update the total on the news ticker.
I did this because it’s easier for me…I never have to handle payments or transfers and it’s completely transparent to the member where their donation is going, rather than any hint/doubt that it might be going to me. I would also stress no member is ever required to donate and donating doesn’t mean we can’t get removed from the free service, or the free service could stop tomorrow? Of course the more forums that donate, the more likely Freeflarum volunteers can continue to offer free hosting.
