If you’d like to support TheLifestream, and keep it ad-free, we offer the possibility for you to donate a certain amount of money to TLS through PayPal. Donating is easy and won’t take more than a few minutes (if you already have a PayPal account, that is), and will help keep TLS online and ad-free!
Use the following form to donate the indicated amount to TLS. If you’d like to donate a different figure, please contact us for details.
Donate to TLS through PayPal
Donating to TLS will – of course – have some benefits for you as well. In case the donations are unable to cover the costs for keeping TLS online, and we’ll be forced to add advertising to the site, we will offer ad removal to those that have donated – donators will never see advertisements that we put on TLS.
Second, Donators will – if they so choose – be upgraded to the Donator usergroup on the forums, which gives them bigger Everything (PM boxes, avatar / signature sizes, you name it), as well as access to the Donator’s section, where we’re a lot less lenient on the rules that apply to the rest of the forum, amongst other things.
In the future, as more features become available to TLS, donators will receive additional benefits. If you like, we’ll also give you credit for keeping TLS online, by adding a benefactor list. Please indicate if you’d like to have your name added to said list when you make the donation.
Donation Conditions and Usage
Some ‘legal’ notes apply to donating money to TLS. First off, no rights or guarantees can be given when you donate money. That is, you won’t have an extra say on site or forum matters because you’ve donated. The only extras you will get are the benefits as described above, and/or any future benefits. The conditions for donation may alter at any time (although probably just in the details). There will be no refunds, unless a serious mistake has occurred – contact us when that occurs, but, once again, no guarantees of any kind can be given.
Donations will be used primarily to pay for hosting of the site, and secondarily for additional TLS expenses, such as software licenses and other site or content-related purchases such as magazines or other content. As donator, you won’t have a deciding vote in where the donated money is spent on, however you can make suggestions in the designated section. No guarantee can be given if the suggestion will be executed though, depending on the suggestion itself and the available funds.
