[CLOSED] Tchin-tchin: Call for donations 2021-22

Post by Bre901 » Fri Oct 01, 2021 9:49 am

Starting October 1st, we are launching the traditional "Call for Donations" to those who attend our forum and its daily flights, as well as the competitions (Grand Prix, Tchin-tchin Race, etc.). This call for donations will be maintained until we can ensure the operation of Condorsim.fr during the year 2021-2022.

Why make a donation?

There's no such thing as a free lunch. We don't own any equipment (servers, forums) and are therefore obliged to pay for their rental. We are currently paying for the rental of a very reliable server with good performance. It allows us to run the daily flights (Tchin tchin) and competitions with excellent performance. We also have to pay for TeamSpeak and the domain names Condorsim.fr and Condorsim-ts.fr. All in all, our expenses amount to about 400 Euro/year.
The financing of our system has always been based on voluntary and confidential donations, and this has always allowed us to exist until now.

How much to give?

The amount is of course free: it is a donation, not a contribution. Nor is it an act of charity, nor a gesture of thanks to the admins who, of course, do not derive any personal benefit from it. But we want to avoid (at all costs :) ) the installation of a system of membership fees or paying competitions. Everyone gives according to the use and the satisfaction they get from the Forum and the organised flights. Let's compare this with a meal in a restaurant, an overnight stay in a hotel, a cinema ticket...

How to give?

Acknowledgements will let you know that your donation has arrived and has been received. If you do not see anything after a few days, do not hesitate to send a PM to an Admin (Marc, Bre901 or canastel9g).

Distinguishing sign of donors:

Although the amount donated is confidential, a blue colour is assigned to the nickname of the donor on the Condorsim forum (the specific colour of some special categories such as tasksetters, moderators, etc... does not change). The current blue colours of the 2020/2021 donors have been deleted and will be reallocated to the new 2021/2022 donors.

With many thanks from the whole community :) .
