Pardon me for being dense but... why are so many users' names in Orange? Is it a special user group? I assumed that maybe once you'd posted so many hundred times it changed? Just curious! :)

If you look at the bottom of the first page, you will see that those members whose names come up on Orange are "donators" (as opposed, presumably, to "donors". No, I don't know either). So if you want the future to be orange, get your hand in your pocket. :thumb:

Orangeness should require annual renewal.
It would remind people to keep donations coming in!

I didn’t even know this was possible, I tried to round things up evenly but PayPal must take a percentage too.

Yes paypal take a cut although there is a way they don't but it involves sending it as a gift rather than a donation

@Westbeef I never even saw that 1p paypal took it in fees :lol:

I just didn’t think they would take a cut with t being a donation at the end of the day.
