    It's been a long time since I visited the forums (been very busy at work lately :(), and after reading all the troubles Dark_Ride is facing I really want to help but unfortunately I can't, I cannot use Paypal from my country.

    Dark_Ride, in a way I personally now how frustrating it can be to look for a brighter future in another country, I've been trying to do that myself by taking many tests to get my dental license in the US in a process that has lasted more than four years, and two weeks ago, I was told that I finally passed the last required test, so now I can apply for an H1B working visa for next year! I know this may sound cliched, but in my personal experience, all I can say to you is to keep trying and never let your hope die buddy! You may find many obstacles in your way but there's always a way to solve them, never give up! :D

    Guys is there other way to donate than using Paypal? They don't accept credit cards from my country (even though we use U.S. dollars as currency here :rolleyes: ) so it's impossible for me to make a donation...

    Have you guys thought of another payment method besides Paypal or personal checks? I don't have a checking account either, but I can use any of my Visa credit cards to help you :)

    If you can figure another way of paying with international credit cards, I'll be more than glad to make a donation, keep it up Dark_Ride! :toast:

    o.k....

    i will be bluntly honest here.

    sincerely have doubts as to the validity of ANY private party online asking for donations...

    however, all hail the mighty 'techpowerup':respect:

    i will try to have a little faith in this community.

    just sent $50 through Paypal to pogeman1000@gmail.com

    hope it helps.

    If you can't trust W1zzard and TPU, who can you trust then ? ;)
    Thank you for the donation and no worries. The money will be used for a good cause.

    Thanks Slater. Will tell POGE to edit it.

    damn i wanted to donate money but i cant...

    some asshole sent me $300 for a card i sold to him, 3 weeks later after i sent the card, my paypal account is on -$300 cus he used a fake credit card and the credit card company issued a chargeback. :(

    if the issue is resolved sometime soon and i win, and my paypal account becomes 'un-frozen', ill donate :D.

    donated 12 USD, I Plan to donate another 20-30 dollars possibly more when I get my new cash/credit card. No tickets I'm staff. I would donate more, but I'm a college student so I dont have much money to begin with.
