  1. James: S. T. Patrick of Midnight News Writer, whose interviews of guests on the JFK assassination I frequently post on the EF, would like to join the Forum. How does he go about doing this? Many thanks, Doug

      Douglas,

      James needs to contact Kathy Becket. There is an official link to joining, but might be quicker to contact Kathy direct: kathy becket  <criglett@yahoo.com>

      I am sure kathy will be delighted to assist.

      James

    David, I know he is not flavour of the month - possible even the year - but have you thought about Dale Myers second edition of "With Malice." Ignoring his views and conclusion he has has a lot of evidence there as well as clear 2D and 3D maps. Just a thought James.

    Credit/Debit card Donations

    Thanks Paul. I find PayPal useful. Looking at the donations, it was very easy to set up a Paypal system which was maily conducted within Invision. That is not the case with Credit cards. I have a Credit/Debit card system for my business and it costs me around $50 per months in charges. I could not sustain those costs for donation contributions. James

    Credit/Debit card Donations

    I have looked into the possibility of introducing Credit/Debit card donations. It simply is a no-goer. Unlike the Paypal system which is effectivel funds from friends for which there is no charge by Paypal for Credit cards there will be a charge of around $50. Unlike paypal we have to sign up with a Payment gateway like Authoize.net. Once set up there will be a charge of around 2% percent of any donation. Inaddition there will also be a monthly service charge. And finally there is a monthly Gateway charge. I.e. a charge for safely transferring the donation into the bank account. Even if no money is donated there will still be a monthly charge for having the gateway set-up. Taken together it will often cost me monthly in charges than I might receive. I am sorry, but this is not a practical solution. James.

    STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS HOW TO DONATE TO THE E.F.

    No problem Paul. I'll get onto it as soon as I can. I see one member has donated, so I can now guarantee that the Paypal system is working. I will get onto the CC/Debit version as soon as I can, James.

    Terry, The system allows auto/regular payments. I can look into that you you and others who might find that useful. James
  9. I believe I have created a means whereby members - who wish - can donate to the EF. At present it is a Paypal system. Soon there will be a Credit/Debit card system added. I have tested it and it appears to work correctly. If members however find issues please inform me and I will look into it. You will find instructions pinned above. James
  10. I believe I may have a working Paypal donation system up and running. J have tested it and it appears to be working. At present it is just a Paypal system. The Donation does allow Credit Cards but that is a little more complicated. I will try to get that up and running soon for those who prefer Credit/Debit cards. Step 1:- To access the donation system click on Store and Donation See below Image 1 Step 2:- Click on Donate towards this Goal. Image 2 Step 3:- Once in you are prompted for the amount you wish to donate. See image below. Image 3 Step 4:- After that you are taken to the PayPal donation and ought then to be directed to your own PayPal account through which you can make a donation. Image 4 Hopefully this will work.

    Thank you everyone. I agree that a donation system may well be a good first step. I believe I may have a working Paypal donation system working. I have already donated $2 through two test attempts. each time I was directed to my receiving account. I believe you should be directed to your sending account. However it you are also directed to my receiving account I will have to correct that error. To access the donation system click on Store and Donation See below Image 1 There are two PayPal systems. The top one is an earlier attempt. Click on the lower one. See Image below. Image 2 Once in you are prompted for the amount you wish to donate. See image below. Image 3 After that you are taken to the PayPal donation and ought then to be directed to your own PayPal account through which you can make a donation. Image 4 Hopefully this will work. James

    Cliff, Thank you. Mr. Niederhut The Donation systems has not yet been implemented. I will announce when it is up and running. Steve, the donations system will leave it to members whether they want to donate or not and if they do to indicate how much they wish to donate. I am against a system that asks members to please donate X dollars. James
