Donations...

Hi

I am planning on donating to FIATforum and I would like to know whatthe money does and has gone toward? Rather than asking a mod this, I have made it public as i'm sure it probably crosses other peoples minds on here too?

Cheers,

Re: Donations...

why? seems like a valid question to me?
Like many people, if I donate I would like to know what my contribution is going to do and help so I can at least know what is happening to the money I offer and that I can get something out of it because of that.

Re: Donations...

It came down to the fact that Ben is putting in thousands more than is coming out, put the thread was a bit argumentitive.
