    The donation script, a third-party add-on, changes the color, the graphic is added by a modification to the code that I made. It appears that the color turns off after a year but the graphic which is more of a manual process continues on. Once a person contributes the graphic is earned as far as I'm concerned regardless of how often a donation is made. We appreciate those that help keep the forum open.

    I am, though, serious about taking care of your families first in this difficult economy. Nobody should feel bad about not being able to contribute.

    No stealing! Just a compliment to yours. I could have signed the quote "Ayn Rand" but that wouldn't be any fun.

    All I see is a way to donate through Pay Pal.

    How do you do the Debit card transaction?

    I believe, but am not positive that if you have them process a credit card, you just enter the debit card and it will verify that it is a debit card, but it has been a long time since I have done that.

    To donate by personal check, shoot me a PM and I will send you my address.

    Yep, just go to the Forum Donations link, select your amount, and select pay using paypal. That will take you to paypal's site and allow you to enter a debit or credit card. No paypal account needed.

    But - Once I did that, it wrecked my reputation if you can believe it:

    There was no connection between that happening and PayPal. I used the reputation feature in vBulletin, which we did not use here, as a flag to display the contributor graphic. Sometimes it works automatically and sometimes (for whatever reason) it doesn't. It's potentially a problem only on an initial donation.

    For those wondering what the "reputation feature" is, it's the basis of what caused the demise of packing.org - people get to "vote" on the popularity of threads, thereby increasing the OP's reputation in a forum....

    Out of the few gun forums i frequent this is the only one i support it is truly a great place where one doesn't have to be scared to ask a question. Keep up the great work.
