Donations made to deskthority are used to cover hosting and other costs (maybe in the future the members could choose to use funds to finance certain events, group buys or custom keyboards). Deskthority is a non-profit collection of keyboard enthusiasts, so all is payed for by the community and everything is returned to the community in the end, such as the hosting and availability of our website. All donations are listed in this topic for transparency.
Donate and get...
In return for your donation of at least 10 EUR, if you want you will get a deskthority email forward address (yourname at deskthority dot net to an address of your choice) and/or a custom title (mine is Wild Duck).
To make a donation, send a PM to group "Donations" (compose a PM, click on group Donations and click the Add button) with the following info:
- Whether you want to pay by IBAN wire transfer (free for lots of parts of Europe, but check your bank) or by paypal.
- If you want an email address and/or custom title, please state them (in case of an email address also give an address to forward emails to).
- Let us know if we can use your member name in the donations list below, or if you want to be listed as "Anonymous".
EDIT: There's now a paypal donation page here.
Add some comment to your payment like "for deskthority by your member name" (so the receiving end doesn't regard it as a spontaneous, personal gift from a random admirer).
We'll send you a confirmation when your payment is received, and update this post.
