    And many of us do, then once again I have to stress the importance of joining VIP, and/or donating a few dollars to keep this thing going. Folks the ad servers and few VIP and donators we do have do NOT cover the cost of keeping the lights on. There is a very real danger that this place could turn off the lights and leave us forever, what we've built here as a community is nothing short of amazing, and something i've been proud to support for years of my life.

    Please, please take this seriously, join VIP and then donate a few extra dollars.

    Is there any way to make it more obvious the "forum error enforced thread" page is trying to redirect you to read this thread, and not actually an error page? I'm embarrassed to admit I already deleted all of my internet history trying to figure out what was going on and then just left for the day figuring there was a problem with the forum, then came back and wondered how the heck other people were posting on threads.

    most of the addons for xenforo are paid, and well, we don't have a budget for addons at this time, so free is what we get. and with free....

    I made a donation with Paypal not too long ago, but I don't see a 'donator' under my avatar. Is there a system error?

    Thank you for your donation! Donator is a badge that we haven't re-implemented. If you want VIP privileges, you'd have to click on the JOIN VIP link at the top of the page.

    Why doesn't the forum add an Amazon Associates shopping link so users can make their amazon purchases through FH? During the holidays I guarantee it would earn the forum several thousand dollars in affiliate commissions and it costs users nothing. It's a very simple thing to do for some extra cash.

    I would too. It's a great way to support a place.

    The link could even be added as a sticky bar at the top of the page so people would know about it. During holidays, given the consistent traffic that FH gets and the many devoted users, they could easily get several thousand dollars from Amazon affiliate commissions.

    Two thumbs up. May be the Wildbill can create a badge for member who is a frequent Amazon shopper through finheaven. I for one exclusively shop at Amazon, and would like to go through finheaven portal.

    Amazon affiliate is a great idea. Times are difficult but I'll find a way to get the VIP this month

    I'll see about adding a link. I think we had one before that kinda got phased out with the old format.

    I’m a donator, super donator and VIP, but I just donated $25 more bucks, cuz I couldn’t live without you guys! Well I’m sure I could continue to live, but I’d be even more miserable without you all, in this “Fins Football Hell” we all share and choose to live in!!

    not sure of the requirements, but another possible option could be amazon smile. I know my family uses it for all our purchases on amazon and a percentage goes back to the group identified in our amazon account. Might be worth a look?

    Getting ready for a big international move, so gotta watch the cash at the moment, but will be chipping in more once we're settled. In the meantime, I would absolutely use the Amazon link. I do most of my shopping via Amazon, particularly for school stuff ($$$$$$$$).

    Thank you guys for being so generous this month! I can't tell you how much this site means to me personally, It's like a second home where even if i'm having a bad day, I know I can come here and find something that helps with my day, or helps with a team loss etc. And it's almost like a family member that i've helped to grow and watched it change and mature over the years. Love comes to mind.


    A quick update, we should be able to provide a portal soon for both ebay and amazon that if you use it, and you buy something Finheaven will get a kickback. So shopping at places you already shop will help keep this place open too!

    Guys we are making great progress on our goal to keep the lights on, with ad revenue turning to crap (ad blockers, poor payouts, etc) it's more important than ever to join VIP and or become a super donator, or even just to donate a 5 spot when you're able.

    Hell if everyone who posts on the site donated a dollar or two a per year I imagine FH would have very few money problems.

    Huge props to Bill, Henrik and im sure others who were here before my time for keeping this site running. I have no doubt the site has run at a loss to you personally throughout the years. FH is a huge part of my life and I would sorely miss it

    I thought I was already a VIP but apparently not. So I have just paid my $25 for the upgrade.
    Would love to do the Super Donator but can't really afford it, when I have to pay a hefty sum to get NFL Game Pass so I can watch my beloved Fins!

    Another good option is to set up an affiliate store with Fanatics. People can come here, get links to buy Dolphins stuff, and Finheaven gets a commission (targeted affiliate programs like this are likely to have better yields than the Amazon ones, because people's minds are already on Fins stuff when they get here, rather than the random things they need to order on Amazon). http://www.fanatics.com/pages/affiliates

    There is also VIP chat that you get, and your own ladies lounge. If you need the password let me know. John

    Pleas like this usually fall on deaf ears because they seem very vague.

    I think if you were to outline the actual expenses, the income from VIP and donations, and how much is in the coffers now, it would spur more people to contribute.

    Making things "concrete" makes it more real.
