Publisher wrote:Yes, helping support the GBN financially has its privileges, one of them being on the guest list for two Meet & Greet events upcoming in the next 3 months. And you get access to the PRIVATE sections of the Forums. And automatic access to the internal messaging system, so you don't have to rely on email.

What's the catch? Well, you have to shell out $25 annually as a donation to help support the costs of running the site, and so I can occasionally buy a bag of chips or a donut to devour.

If we could get just 22% of the registered users to see the value, we could RADICALLY upgrade the site. Less than 1/4. It seems rather odd that the GBN gets SO many users and SO many advertisers, and yet... so many don't see the value of contributing to make this an even BETTER resource.

So... you've read all this BS, and you're wondering: How do I donate to keep the site going and growing? Easy!

There are three ways:

1) Send a donation of $25 via credit card. After the transaction is completed, please send me an email with your username if the email address you use is different from the one you use here.

OR

2) Send it to:

Nobody Home Ent
PO Box 41
Savoy, IL 61874

OR

3) Purchase a Greendot Moneypak - just the NORMAL one, not a Paypal or Gift card, and send me the PIN.

Do you still accept the Green Dot - MoneyPak PIN as a way to donate/join? If so do I PM you the PIN?

I have never used the Green Dot things so I am not familiar with how the work. As I understand it I go to the store buy one with cash then how do I get the info to Pubs? Do I physically mail the card to him at the PO Box? E-mail a PIN or number.

I am feeling old and stupid at this point. Help?

From the Home page, select Contact Us and send him the pin number.

TY Rachel and Vorlon. I may indeed be old (I am) and stupid but I know a good thing when I see it.

And time for the folks sitting on the fence to get in before they miss the next event.

Is this still going on? I was just going too - I just joined - and noticed these posts are from 9 years ago.

This is awesome. I just donated. In my opinion, just the just the security of meeting referenced people is worth way more! The information alone & the opportunities I have read just this morning made the donation worth it. A meet & greet is exactly the type of hobbyist I'm willing to share my time with.
