Forum Donation Link?

I’m probably overlooking something obvious, but how does one donate/become a forum supporter?

They will "ask" when they need $$$ for chipping in.

It should be coming up, the last time was April 2020.
I have requested that the donation link be left up all year, but the mods are pretty humble people as far as running the site and they only ask for donations when needed.

JohnBG, the site owner, will emerge from hibernation and post the appropriate solicitation thread(s). They're easy to notice, once present. A PayPal link is usually provided.

After your donation is received and processed, the yellow Donor icon will appear beneath your User Name. Hero status will be created or updated to the current calendar year as required.

His Royal Eminence, JohnBG, only asks for donations when the server rent is due ( or when he feels it’s time to upgrade due to more SS users online)...

Be quick on the keyboard when you see the donation thread (last time it was something like: “Passing the Hat—server rent due”) donations come fast and furious until John says STOP!!!

John, Marty and their underlings (that would be We: The Moderators) provide their services free-of-charge to keep the #1 Ural site up and running smoothly...

I'll be hitting you all up soon as our web hosting fees are due again in July. Wanted to get some of the wonky out of the site first (which I think I have) before I hit you up for donations and get a lemon in return.

That’s quite an odd first post… and only a year and a half out of date…

I gots my eye on you… Festus…
