Avlis Financials - April 2016

PostAuthor: krackq » Tue May 10, 2016 12:50 am

Way past time for another peek at the Avlis financials. For those that are new to Avlis, welcome (after the reunion weekend there might be a lot more of you!) Welcome back returning players as well! As part of FOIG, Inc's mission to keep Avlis alive and running, we publish all of our financial information for the community to see. These give everyone a chance to see where our donations/subscriptions stand against our monthly bills to keep the world running. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

This is long overdue. The last few months have been crazy and Avlis has been quite busy! Some of you may know, but many of you may not know that in order to keep Avlis running, we rely entirely on player donations and "subscriptions" to help pay the bills. We have very few bills.. basically web hosting service and our dedicated server(s) hosting. These are pretty much fixed expenses so we always know how much we'll have to pay each month. Monetary donations tend to come in two flavors. There are the one shot donations (ie.. I donated $20 for the month to help out) and then there are the recurring subscriptions (ie.. I automatically send $15 every month) At one time, we had enough subscriptions to sustain our expenses entirely. Things happen though as people come and go and over time numbers slide so our subscriptions go down. The last few months have been steadily on the down with red months. As we've been down now for several months my goal now will be to keep these postings monthly (I have a calendar appointment now and someone to pwn me if I don't!)

Thank you to everyone that has donated these months! A special shout out to those that maintain a monthly subscription! Remember, if you love the epic awesome that is Avlis and want to keep the place around as long as possible so that you can stay up and be sleep griefed with awesome, then please consider a donation!

Ok, on to the details!

Thanks to everyone who contributed!!

Donations are listed differently from Subscription payments in the Income section. Subscriptions are monthly recurring and donations are usually one-time shots from the Community.

[*]The "Paypal Fees" listed is Paypal's processing fee for taking donations and subscriptions.

*signed up on a sub* :-)

Rather donate to this, then the trash I've seen made by gaming companies over the years. Avlis is totally unique in my eyes and needs looking after.

It don't let me, i have this message:

If you were making a purchase or sending money, we recommend that you check both your PayPal account and your email for a transaction confirmation after 30 minutes.

If you came to this page from another website, please return to that site (don't use your browser's Back button) and restart your activity.

If you came from PayPal's website, click the PayPal logo in the upper-left corner to return to our home page and restart your activity. You might have to log in again


Any idea how to work it around?

I would be willing too, but PayPal isn't a way of transferring donations.. in the past mysterieuze account was hacked so I don't use it..

Is there another way to get a one time donation in..?

Cheers !

For those that get the warning message, I'm guessing its towards the completion of the transaction itself. I've seen others report this online. It's usually related to a web browser problem or a cookie problem. The only thing I can think of is trying to clear you browser cache or trying a different browser. The subscribe buttons are code that paypal gives us that pretty much just takes you directly into their page and links to our account for the subscription. If its failing to complete, then its usually something relating to your local browser most likely. Unfortunately I'm not much more help than that other than googling the issue some more.

Missian, we don't really have another method set up yet just because it adds more things to manage. I know that paypal will let you pay directly without actually using a paypal account to log in if you prefer. Towards the bottom of the donation page is a link that says "Don't have a paypal account? Use your credit card or bank account (where available) Click here" It will let you just make a credit card style payment like you would purchasing something from any website. I don't know if that will help.

I'm going to get my subscription back up and probably a donation, It's just that I've just done a hard re-boot of all my financials and PayPal went with it.(Apparently I was a paying member of the Norwegian Heraldic Society??)
