Hey guys...

I'd like to donate $15 (it's a bit overdue)

The link to donate via PayPal leads to the standard CKA 404 page saying "This module isn't active"...

Probably if you send money to trevor@canadaka.net on paypal it'll find its way. That's who it shows as a recipient when ive donated.

Gave that a shot, this happened:

$1:
This recipient is currently unable to receive money.


:(

"This recipient is unable to receive money." That might be the saddest thing I've ever read.

I wonder what happened, hope it gets fixed soon
There's another link thing on the donate page, but it asks for US dollars and I need this to be a specific Canadian dollar amount. There's only $15.07 on the account and I have no idea if that other method carries bullshit "additional charges" or otherwise fails to properly convert Canadaian to American.

Gunny and OTI have a bet. The first one who insults someone on CKA has to donate $100 to CKA. Gunny is convinced OTI will lose :)

And no, Mr.C, baiting is not allowed ;-)

I pm'd Trevor months ago when I tried to donate the same way. He'd responded that the paypal function was not working but I do not remember if he said whether or not it would be fixed in the near future or not. I cleaned out my pm box a couple months ago so I can't refer to it now. You can donate via credit card but it goes through a different service company that I'm not familiar with and am uncertain about using. I just check the paypal option now and again.

I may end up using that other option, I'll do some math and enter in the American converted rate. I can't at the moment though, I used the card to buy a tablet keyboard for college, and appairently there is a $2.99 for 7-10 days because of that. I could donate now, but it'd only be about $14, I want to donate the full amount

Thanks for the help!

The Canadian Dollar is apparently doing decently. $15 Canadian Dollars is $15.22 American, according to Google at least.

Okay, so I paid $15.22 USD to Trevor's Authorize.net account. Sadly the currency marker was a lie, it actually does charge in Canadian dollars, so I paid $15.22. Oh well.

The main reason for making this post is that I notice in my transaction history that is says this money was paid to "WASTED TALENT"...

That's how you know when a guy really is in a deep relationship... Even the confirmation message came from her website, ;)

Anyway, $15.22 is hardly enough to pay for the 6 years of babysitting this website has done for me, so hopefully I can donate again soon. Cheers!

ugggggggggggggh, I HATE PAYPAL! All our Paypal accounts were banned last spring/summer, I can never use Paypal again for my entire life. No reason was given and no chance of appeal, utter bullshit.

So for donations I am using the Authorize.net credit card payments I setup for my wife to sell her books. It costs $20 a month to maintain so its not worth it for me to get my own, I don't even get $20 a month in donations lately.

So yes it will look like you are donating to www.wastedtalent.ca which is my wifes website.

The bonus is you can donate without needing a Paypal account, just a credit card. I can also accept donations with the Canadian Interac email money transfer. The links to both donation methods are here http://www.trevormay.ca/donate/

Also! thanks for the donation Public_Domain!
