Exclamation Support Maple Leaf Up 2.0

Dear members,

As pointed out before, the transition to the new URL www.mapleleafup.net of this forum has now been succesfully completed. Some small issues have been ironed out and the forum currently has a much higher availablity & reliability. An upgrade to the latest version of the software the MLU Forum uses is planned in the near future. Thanks go out to the MLU Admin Team making this possible, not in the least place Geoff's son Shawn who takes care of the technical back-end of the website.

But apart from the time the volunteers spend on keeping Maple Leaf Up & running, we need financial support as well. We have bills to pay for hosting the website and software license fees. Therefore we ask you for your continued support for Maple Leaf Up. After many years on a "free" forum, we have been in operation since 2003 in this format and we plan to continue doing so for many more years to come!




Here's hoping for you continued support. Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Hanno Spoelstra


PS: We have chosen to use PayPal as the medium to accept donations. Although there are costs involved, this is the best medium available to accept donations from our global community. If you cannot donate through PayPal, please contact me to discuss other possibilities.

Hi Hanno

The Donation Link in Euros is in Dutch. Can you change that please?

What about posting an IBAN/Swift Number for a bank account as EUR wire transfers inside the European SEPA area a without any bank cost.

Greetings
Chris

Default Canadian Payments..

Hanno..
I always pay cash...
Can We send Sean cash by mail here in Canada..??It is a lot cheaper to pay Sean here in Canada..
Or do we have to pay you ..??
I will send this duplicate posting to you by e-mail.
Further why not have European and British MLU'ers pay you...Canadian's and Americans pay Sean and Anzacs pay Keith..
Saves a hell of a lot of exchange expenses..You three should have identical access to the account to pay bills or account for the cash to each other and to the members..and it gives credence to honesty on the site that there would never be any question of "Getting Ripped off" by MLUers or administration..

Alex

Just kicked $20CAD over. via PayPal. Not a lot but if even a small percentage of the members do a similar donation, it should cover the basic fees.

Keep up the good work, its very much appreciated.

vBulletin Launches vBulletin Mobile Suite to Propel Online Forums Into the App Ecosystem

vBulletin Community Operators Get Custom-Branded iPhone and Android Apps for Just $99

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) - vBulletin today launched vBulletin Mobile Suite, an all-new mobile solution that enables vBulletin forum operators to easily offer their users custom-branded iPhone and Android apps.

"Forum operators have been vocal in telling us they want a mobile option that lets them break their communities away from the desktop and take advantage of the mobile explosion," said Fabian Schonholz, Vice President of Technology at vBulletin. "We think vBulletin Mobile Suite is the simplest way ever for forum operators to go wireless and have a solid presence in the app space."

Comprehensive web-based customization allows forum operators to maintain the unique character, functionality, and comfort of their existing vBulletin web presence in their iPhone and Android apps. vBulletin handles development work and packages apps for submission to the iTunes and Android marketplaces.

"Not only does vBulletin Mobile Suite allow forum operators to get a customized set of apps without compromises to branding or usability, it allows them to do so at a fraction of the price of hiring a dedicated app developer," added Schonholz.

Features

vBulletin Mobile Suite breaks new ground in the forum-to-app space in a number of ways:

Custom Styles: Customizable logo and mobile skin provides ample look-and-feel options.
Mobile Ads: Best-of-breed mobile ad integration increases revenue potential.
User-Friendly Interface: Simple, efficient UI allows users to quickly view and post messages.
Moderation Tools: Multifunctional moderation capabilities enable swift community management from mobile devices.

See these and more features in action at http://www.vbulletin.com/mobile.

vBulletin Mobile Suite currently supports vBulletin Forum Classic (version 3.7.x to 3.8.x & 4.1.2+) and vBulletin Publishing Suite (version 4.1.2+) software, and supports Apple iOS 3.1.3+ (iPad, iPod touch, & iPhone 3 & 4) and Android operating systems (OS 1.6+).

Pricing

vBulletin Mobile Suite is currently available for the special introductory price of $99. The price is all-inclusive; there are no cost-adding options to the product.

For more information and to purchase vBulletin Mobile Suite, visit http://www.vbulletin.com/mobile.

OK just sent a donation hope it's enough. Hanno keep us updated on amount needed as the volunteers running MLU shouldn't be out of pocket as their time input is highly valuable.

Alex,

Have replied to your e-mail, we will work something out for you as a long serving member and supporter.

But PayPal is a global platform, so one does not need to have local representatives in each country to go around the membership with a tin money box - dude, it's all about electronics these days!

Regards,
Hanno

Hanno...
I am up on all the electronic world wonders but have dealt cash through the mails for years..
Was out to the bank and post office and mailed out $20.00 to Shawn already ..then came back and got your e-mail and this posting..
If Shawn needs beer to lubricate his throat while he slaves away over a hot laptop,while zapping curmudgeons and whackos that are infesting our MLU FORUM..Then he will need some cash...The Beer store doesn't take Pay Pal..
We want to cover ALL our expenses and if beer is an expense for us then it is money well spent..

I have always considered beer to be an allowable business expense...unfortunately, Revenue Canada doesn't agree.

Done. It should have generated a code in English, but apparently the combination Euros and English is a no go

Transferring funds via PayPal are without any cost for the people who make donations. PayPal takes a percentage from the donation for handling the payment, but it is worth it compared to the handling of separate bank transfers.

Again, if anyone is unable to use PayPal, contact me to work out other options.

Thanks,
Hanno

  • changing the standard messages sent out when one signs up, etc.
  • adding a forum
If you or anyone else has some spare time to get oneself acquainted with vBulletin, please do and post your findings here. Their forum seems to be a good place to start reading and asking questions.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Hanno.
I know you are doing yeoman's duty on the MLU site as well as the rest of our admin troop and am not really familiar enough with computers to volunteer for admin status,but am sending in donation money to Shawn again this year.
I have his address in Waterloo and am sure he has expenses that I can contribute too.
Not into Paypal ..cash is my best weapon.
Anyway I tried to PM Shawn but he is not listed on the site under his real name for maybe obvious reasons..
But will post here as I assume he will get it that way.

Shawn
My yearly donation is on the way to you..
Put it to use where it helps best.
Alex Blair
Ottawa

Will be in the mail Monday.

Hello Mike,

As far as I know, PayPal knows no borders: click on this link to donate in Euros. Donations in Euros are preferred, PayPal will make the conversion from your available funds.

Alternatively, go to https://www.paypal.me/MapleLeafUp and use your available options to donate. Much appreciated!

Hanno
