    Exclamation My Way Out needs your help!

    Since February 2017, the My Way Out Community forums have been managed by a dedicated team of administrators and moderators. I'm sure we can all agree that prior to that date, the forums were being overrun by trolls, troublemakers, and spammers.

    We think we've accomplished a lot since then: we created clear forum rules and removed users who consistently violated those rules. When the forum was demolished by a malicious attack last year, the team banded together to get it back up and running within a few hours. Spammers are promptly banned, and we try to respond to reports in a timely manner. And we hope we've gained the trust and support of the community.

    Here's our dilemma: the team members along with a (very) few subscribers have been footing the bill for the forums. We need your help to keep this community running. My Way Out does not have any other revenue source and we do not advertise.

    We are hoping to reach a modest goal: $200 per month in donation revenue to cover our hosting costs. Any surplus will go towards future upgrades. The MWO staff are all volunteers, and nobody is pocketing this revenue.

    Subscribers will have access to a number of benefits:
    - Increase in PM limit over Registered Users from 100 to 500.
    - Increased post editing time over Registered Users from 120 minutes to unlimited.
    - Ability to delete own posts if desired.
    - Ability to see which users have visited the forum in the last 24 hours.
    - Ability to browse the Forum anonymously.
    - Users can have their username in color, clearly showing their position as a subscriber to the Forum.
    - The knowledge that their financial commitment is helping to maintain this Forum, a safe haven for so many people.

    So we're asking for your donations. Currently, subscriptions are set at $20/month or $100/year. We are open to discussion regarding whether people would be more willing to donate if it was $10/mo or $75/year. Comments are welcome.

    The "Subscribe" tab is at the top of the forum next to the "Home" tab, now highlighted in red.

    Please consider supporting the forums, and thanks to everyone for making our community a wonderful place.

    Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.

    You can use the paypal link to pay by card without registering with pay pal I understand.

    It looks as if it opened a pay pal account linked to my credit card, as you say. I'm ok with that. I didn't see a way JUST to pay by credit card.

    Doesn’t work for me, maybe because I’m in Canada, they want me to set up a paypal account and give my banking info. Not going to do that sorry.
