* We need to make sure that the forum complies with the laws so that it won’t be shutdown and that the members especially the moderators/admins of this forum are safe. Therefore we need a lawyer to draft the terms & conditions and the privacy policy and give legal advices. However, the priority of this is low, and we will use the funding for more critical things like development or marketing first.

** This forum is costing about $10 per month for digital ocean services.

*** We have a list of about 20,000 emails extracted from the old litecointalk.org forum. Sending one announcements to them through email requires about $5.

Your forum work and the continuation thereof is very important.

Would it be worthwhile to create a basic funding page that tracks the bills that have been incurred (as you have listed above), the amount of :ltc: received in the fund and applied by you to each individual bill, and the amount of excess (or deficit) :ltc: ?

I think it may help to show everyone specifically which bills have been fully paid and which ones need additional funding. For example, I cannot determine how much was spent on the lawyer and if that has been completely paid for or is still outstanding. I can only assume that it was not cheap.

Just some ideas for later, I realize you have a great release to manage at the moment.


#9

Yeah, I will try to make it more clear by using a table to list the expenses and donations received. The lawyer is not involved yet. I need to make sure I will get enough donation first. I can surely pay myself. But I hope to see supports from the community.


#10

It’s much clearer now.


#11

That’s great. Thanks for the details.

我找不到论坛原来论坛费用的捐助地址了
#14

I will point avaliable miners to the adress the coming week. It seems you are better off with a 2% donation upfront :wink:


#15

Thank you!


#16

Someone keeps donating 10 LTC to the forum at 9pm everyday. Who is that? Anyway, thanks!


#17

See above. Payout in multiples of 5. I hope more people at the forum will donates the same way in te future :slight_smile:


#18

The GoldCoin (GLD) team will be establishing a rolling Litecoin development fund beginning immediately. Our new rebase is based on the new Litecoin and we want to give back to the Litecoin community.

Please let us know if there are any specific areas where we should direct funds. I see @SatoshiLite occasionally on Twitter, so I guess I could also ask him?

Thanks so much guys for the new forum. It looks awesome! :innocent:


#19

I just found out which pool it is. Thanks a lot! Let me know if you want me to put the pool’s name above.


#20

Thanks, but the donation is from me personally, and for a week. Let the pool make their own donations to the cause :slight_smile:


#21

Oh, good! I will put your name above then. Thanks again!
