    FI donations

    Dear FInteristi,

    How are you guys doing?

    As you surely have noticed, our forum has gone through considerable changes over the past week.

    We have bought the new vBulletin software to ensure that Forza Inter Forums uses the newest and best forum software there is. I know that right now, the colors, designs and features looks completely different compared to the old version but once again I'd like to remind you that this current style is a temporary fix as these are the colors that comes in default with the new software. It's will take some time but rest assured that it will eventually look like the old forum.

    We have also taken a radical step to move away from the previous free hosting which comes with advertisement. Now, we are privately hosted and are paying the server bills ourselves. Our goal is to make sure that our members enjoy the forum the way it has always been intended to be. It also has a lot to do with our pride. Surely we cannot accept any advertisement in the best and biggest forum of the European Champions!?

    Eventually, as far-fetched as it may sound, our long-term goal is to be recognized by our beloved club themselves. Be it to become an official Inter Club, or affiliated through inter.it or any other measures that haven't crossed our minds today.

    Obviously, all these came with a cost. We'll be perfectly open with the numbers. The vBulletin software cost us US$170 and the forum private server will cost us US$30 per month. I have paid for them both so far. However, if some of you old-timers remember, our forum expands greatly (there are about 800 posts a day in 2010 compared to 200-300 in 2004) and the server bills may grow much bigger than right now.

    Thus, it would greatly help me and the forum if we can secure the forum's financial security for the next year or so. So I'm asking for your help for some financial donations to the forums.

    To make it much simpler and less complicated, we'll only accept donations through PayPal. The PayPal ID is handoyo.sudarga@platinumceramics.com

    I'll update you guys regularly with the forum's account so you can rest assured that I'm not gonna use your money for my own personal food bill or something.

    Jokes aside, if there are a lot of excess in our financial reserves, I can be creative such as buy an Inter jersey for the Prediction League winners (like I did a few years ago) or to the winner of the FI Oscars or for the FI Special ones or maybe design an FIF polo shirt and distribute it to the senior members, etc etc.

    When Inter won the Champions League 2 weeks ago and achieved the Triplete, we immediately set our own Treble goals. To get the best forum software, to be independently hosted and to give our forum financial security. We have achieved the first two, now let's complete it!

    Forza FIF!

    I was wondering about this. I see no shame in advertising. Subtle, well-placed advertising don't bother me. But it's your call.

    Another option could be Forza Inter merchandise. Many people might feel better buying a shirt or a coffee mug where part of the money goes to the running of the forums. I don't know how much money you can make that way though.

    Inter Forever has just donated US$60 to our PayPal account.

    A very warm thank you to Inter Forever, and especially for being the first donor.

    I was working on an Excel template so I can display the financial account but couldn't finish it and I'll finalize it on Monday at the office.

    Thank you Jnr.

    Every dollar is appreciated here people. One of the scariest thing about moving to a private server is this financial thing. It may get blown up as our forum grows and I'd really like to see us accumulating financial reserves that can finance the forum's operation for the next year or two...

    Added a financial account statement in the first post.

    Come on guys, I honestly thought that there'd be more donations at this time. When we first did it back in 2006ish, we received a few hundreds after the first few weeks!

    i asked my mum to give me 10 bucks to donate, she said fuck off...

    No really i did, but she says no way I'm gonna give you money for donating.. and i am unemployed, student, so donating would be unlikely If i find something extra, be sure i'll donate.

    thanks to those that have already donated

    Suneet has donated US$50 into Forza Inter. Now you know why I love him.

    blackmore, I'll be in Singapore from tomorrow till Monday.

    Pajo, it's OK bro. It's the thoughts that count. You can also donate some of your time and be more active in Forza Inter.

    Btw, fucking PayPal...I just logged on to check the account and discovered that Inter Forever's and Five Stars' donation were left untouched but they charged US$4.20 to Ehsan's US$100 and US$2.25 to Suneet's US$50 donation. What's up with that? Maybe IF and FS donated via PayPal but Ehsan & Suneet through credit card without opening a PayPal account? Or maybe PayPal gave 2 free initial transactions? Anyone who's familiar with PayPal can help me on this?

    It's always free to send money to friends and family when you use your PayPal balance or bank account. Fees apply only if the sender uses a credit or debit card, or if you receive any payment for goods or services.

    The standard rate for receiving payments for goods and services is 2.9%.


    If you are going to donate, it is best to have a PayPal account and transfer the money from your bank account.

    My bad. I've updated the pic to hide them.

    On a more happy news, Enricos have donated US$100 to us. Thanks Erik! Even if you haven't been posting as much as we want you to do, FI still have a special place in your heart.
