Thanks again for your suggestion. We haven't decided whether to use flattr. If we do, there will be a button on each main page.

We now have a flattr button on the tracker main page (which may not stay - we're in beta). Thanks again for the suggestion!

I guess it didn't make the cut. I'm not seeing anything on the left side of the tracker main page now. No Payza or anything. Below my Account/Stats and the Theme selector it's just blank white space.

Intentional?

This comes at a really bad time. I'm barely making my own bills this month and I feel a need to donate since the bill is over due already. If we have a few more days maybe I can "chip in", but I'm not sure yet.Confused

There, the validation process was successfully finished. Donated $15 from me. Concen is almost there this time around, only $10 still short.

RE: ConCen will die 1 September unless... (Server Bill Now OVERDUE!)
I think you have a typo in the title, ConCen didn't die on Sept 1 although we are still not current with the rent payments. I can donate 40 dollars once we get our shit together. Fast Tadpole has problems at home with his son's health and yeti said he would assist us in the transition but we don't have a finalized plan as yet. I don't know if it is wise to discuss our options out in the open on the site because eppinoia may still be in attack mode.

RE: ConCen will die 1 September unless... (Server Bill Now OVERDUE!)
Yeah we'd totally get rid of the Payza link altogether but we're at a loss while the yeti is semi-retired and edit access is password protected, so I hear.

As for the out in the open discussion .. may be prudent but a moot point in eventuality as there WILL be a new payment provider whether there is a group with vicious intent on our tails or nay. We're a public site with a semi-public community. If we weren't we'd go hide somewhere in a deep dark slice of the .onion.

PS Updated the Title

PPS If I hadn't mentioned it before publicly HUGE thanks goes out for the donations to get us over the last Hump.

RE: Server Bill Now OVERDUE! (Yes Again)
For the UK: Govt passed The Electronic Money Regulations 2011 so some provider results might come from searching for "email money transfer" or "electronic money" + transfer, found e.g.

http://www.neteller.com/
https://www.ikobo.com/ - site certificate broken, service suspended.

-- at a glance I don't see the main banks providing a service for payments to email adddresses particularly abroad.

RE: Server Bill Now OVERDUE! (Yes Again)
Thanks h3rm35, we need help checking these sites out for ones that will actually work well. Payza is not a viable alternative, too many payment processing delays and unauthorised withdrawals.

Flattr seems like something we might want to incorporate into the site at some point but they only payout once a month and as far as I know it is them that pays out, we wouldn't be able to do a simple withdrawal.

RE: Server Bill Now OVERDUE! (Yes Again)
I'd be happy to help in free time, but If you could provide a list of reasons why other services haven't worked and the "must-have" criteria for one that does (beyond those already provided) it would be helpful. Is it an absolute no-go if they only take CC's and not checking acounts or vice versa? are transaction fees on the user's side or the site's side a deal breaker? etc. Also, I'm not sure how paypal worked as far as different currencies - did they convert it for you at the current exchange rate, and because of this, what country are the funds now to be collected in? Maybe staff have already posted this, but it would help to have it all concisely laid out in one post.

Ditto! Thanks for the life support round #X

We are still in arrears for our October Costs + we're likely moving servers (to a cheaper (VPS) one in October. If we don't get one lined up fast we're pooched because keeping our current host isn't an option for reasons on on a couple of fronts including the fact that it's a dedicated server.

ConCen Crowdsourcing note: We are still looking for a good VPS host with liberal terms of service rules (or lax enforcement) about content distribution and free file sharing among friends and family - like the ConCen community.

List any suggestions for VPS here if you will...

Thanks again. ConCen Roxx!

Paypal converted at their own set rate which was always less than the current rate. If they only take credit cards they are probably no good for us imo.
Transaction fees that are reasonable would probably be ok. The funds would be going to Canada at this juncture.

Not sure this will suit the needs but it is a Canadian Company, I believe.
