Unfortunately, there is a financial cost for keeping our forums ad free. As Admin of the forums, and someone who would rather put pins in his eyes than have ads on the forums (maybe this is a slightly irrational hatred of ads, but what can you do?) I offered to cover the initial cost, as discussed with the devs and discord users.
However, the current run of ad free-ness runs out on 16/07/2020, and I am unable to fund the next run until Monday 20/07/2020. Therefore the forum will not be ad free between those dates. I hope the temporary forum ads bother you less than they will me during this time, please bear with me.
Many Thanks Hippytaff Edit - Thanks to donations from the generous Bodhi Linux community, the next run of ad-free-ness has been covered. Thank You, you're awesome!
Had to cancel my donation due paying car repairs on a very high interest vehicle only credit card, making monthly payments. As per what I post in this topic over at LQ, also high interest monthly payments on a new computer.
Doesn't leave much for myself, I'm retired and have limited income. Those above needed done. Live well out of town, can't live without a computer.
Thanks again to all the people who currently donate when they can and those who did when they could, past and present. Also those who donate their valuable time! It all helps to keep the Bodhi community alive!
