Donation Goals

Create a stable stream of $100/month to pay for a dedicated server to expand dextroverse services.

Our ultimate goal is to be able to have the site pay for itself, but in order to do this the site needs sponsorship to pay the bills. If you, your company, or anyone else you know would be interested in sponsoring the site please feel free to email [email protected] so we can have an informal chat.
Monthly Donations

This is the most helpful type of donation. After you have continued to donate a monthly donation for a while, you might be eligible for a few extra features on the Dextroverse ( email, forum perks, ect.). Please help out as much as you can.

Below : $5.00 a month;_name=Dextroverse+%245+per+month+Donation&item;_number=001&no;_note=1&cy;_code=USD&a3;=5.00&p3;=1&t3;=M&src;=1&sra;=1

Below : $10.00 a month;_name=Dextroverse+%2410+per+month+Donation&item;_number=001&no;_note=1&cy;_code=USD&a3;=10.00&p3;=1&t3;=M&src;=1&sra;=1
One-Time Donation

You can also help us by donating any amount of money through the PayPal 'Donate' option below. Any amount makes a difference. Click the link below to donate any amount.;_name=Dextroverse+Donation&no;_note=1&tax;=0&cy;_code=USD

We've chosen PayPal as it's simple, easy, and secure. If you don't have a PayPal account, it's quick and easy to create one! Or if you have any donation related questions then please feel free to email [email protected].

Please do not feel obliged or awkward about making a donation, but if you've found anything on the site useful and would like to say 'thank you' then you have the way to say thanks!
A Few Notes About Donations

1) All donations go towards *only* the website, not towards buying anything else. All money will go twoards dedicated servers, web space, and server software.

2) All donations are non-refundable.

3) Donations do not gaurentee service of the dextroverse, or the site (though we will most definantly be open for bussiness for a long time to come--if we can help it).
Larger Donations

All Larger Donations may be eligable for a variety of different perks/benifits from the dextroverse, please contact [email protected]com for details.

Who is the knowledge bot? And when would I get a tote bag if I donate?

Posted by: VisionQuest Nov 20 2003, 12:32 AM
True... I'm interested in donating, but don't have a credit card or PayPal account... Can I just send money/checks/money orders or what...? eh.gif

Posted by: Hamletthunktoomuch Nov 20 2003, 11:27 AM
This would help me as well.


Posted by: Drosserden Nov 20 2003, 01:38 PM
Yeah You'll have a package "Coming" to you in the mail.

has this question been answered? Economicaly the better the acessability the better the return. In this case the example of acessabilty could quite possibly include money, checks, and even more preferably for me money orders. sly.gif

Also, in light of the updated navigation bar on the default Dextroverse Skin, I have decided this is a good time for a bump.

Yes! If you want to contribute by mail, please contact me on IRC.

Posted by: C20H25N3O Jan 4 2004, 11:15 PM
I should still contact nitin on this, right?

Posted by: PeoplesMind Jan 5 2004, 12:28 AM
Yes, either contact me on IRC.

Or you can contact void.

hello I just donated $20

Posted by: Sgt Hydrochloride Salt Sep 1 2004, 07:37 PM
Are the one-time donations listed somewhere? Just curious.

Posted by: vmgravity Aug 3 2005, 07:30 PM
Bump for my $10/month.

Posted by: nazrhyn Aug 3 2005, 09:41 PM

Your donation(s) is(are) much appreciated.

Posted by: ranticalion Aug 4 2005, 04:36 PM
The counter at the top was at $80 before I started donating $10/month and now with vmgravity donating is the server now paid for monthly or did some people stop donating or what?

Posted by: greengovernment Aug 4 2005, 05:12 PM
I would really like to help out the dextroverse because it has helped me so much, but I would rather pay like $2-3 a month seeing as how I am pretty poor as it is. I think you would get a lot more supporters too if you could just select your amount, even as small as it is, every little bit does help.

i donated! one dedicated shoutcast server, with a broadband and dialup stream. and tomarrow an eggdrop. go me. im bored. feed me. play with me. ;) play with me hahahaha, whats on TV?

Posted by: nazrhyn Aug 5 2005, 12:21 AM
The counter at the top is updated manually; and, as you surmised, often when it /is/ updated, some people have stopped donating and others have started.

As for your questions about lower donation amounts: you could always just donate $2-$3 per month manually using the one-time donation link. smile.gif

It's only adjusted for registered monthly donations.

Posted by: ranticalion Aug 6 2005, 05:28 PM
So... we're still at $80 then?

Not sure if nitin has updated it recently...

Posted by: the_phoenix Sep 8 2005, 10:06 AM
I would donate if, say, I knew that this month the $100 mark was not met. So if you can make the info available near the end of every month, I'm sure there would be enough response to meet $100. We don't want the owners to dig into their own pockets, I'm sure I'm not alone in this line of thought.

Posted by: Sgt Hydrochloride Salt Sep 8 2005, 10:57 AM
I have donated before and I'd generally consider doing it again. However, what irritates me is the lack of transparency. I had an automatic monthly payment in place for a couple months, yet the display ("we currently have 85$/month") never changed. If we actually have like $150 a month already, I won't donate. If we have $30, I'll strongly consider it. I just wanna know what the situation is.

Posted by: Starman Nov 1 2005, 06:03 AM
I donated, but I didn't see the bar move. Did my money make not make it or what?

The bar only moves if you do a "monthly subscription" donation. Also, I think Nitin said he updates it manually.

update the ammount of money the DV has and i will donate...

Posted by: Vertigo Nov 3 2005, 05:12 PM
I think another donation incentive should be custom tags for payment. Now, I know you have your 1000 posts or whatever and you get custom tags....which would probably be erradicated under this new motion. The kicker is, you cannot buy your own tag, you can only buy tags for others. This is done on the GenMay forum and it's really successful, and a lot of fun. I mentioned this idea to Nitin, and I hope he didn't forget about it. What do you guys think about it?

Posted by: Hamletthunktoomuch Nov 3 2005, 05:24 PM
Good idea, Vertigo.

Posted by: dawhiterabbit Nov 3 2005, 05:58 PM
i donate $10 a month....why not it is a place that i like and care for so i want to keep it thriving.

Posted by: Hamletthunktoomuch Nov 4 2005, 04:05 PM
I will put a 5 dollar bill in the mail today if my name gets changed to Ryan in the next 30 minutes.

i just dropped 15 dolla because this is a very well run website. i truly do enjoy coming here and sharing with people and i'm glad there are so many strangefolks here that are REAL. i have rarely come across a site that offers so much accurate information (besides erowid) and where people will really respond to your questions (sometimes even relatively quickly). anyways, just wanted to share my love for tha DV. and thank the moderators, cuz all in all, i think you guys do an excellent job. thumbs-up.gif peeeeace ninjas

Posted by: FDR Sep 5 2006, 05:17 PM
I just donated twenty bucks to the DV for no apparent good reason other than it's the first time in awhile I've had a steady job.

I hope my hard earned dollars go to good use in preventing the harm associated with DXM.

Posted by: Eloivore Jun 15 2007, 04:54 PM
Since I was asked, it appears you can do regular donations of other amounts of money.

For example:;_name=Dextroverse+%2425+per+month+Donation&item;_number=001&no;_note=1&cy;_code=USD&a3;=25.00&p3;=1&t3;=M&src;=1&sra;=1;_name=Dextroverse+%2450+per+month+Donation&item;_number=001&no;_note=1&cy;_code=USD&a3;=50.00&p3;=1&t3;=M&src;=1&sra;=1

Or any amount of money, really [1]; the URL (remove ALL spaces and line breaks, and replace BOTH instances of XXX with the amount of money in even dollar amount) is:

https: //;_name=Dextroverse+%24 XXX+per+month+Donation&item;_number=001& no_note=1&cy;_code=USD&a3;=XXX.00& p3=1&t3;=M&src;=1&sra;=1

[1] Well, OK, not really. I tried a link for one BEELYUN dollars per month, and it didn't like it.
