Do you guys have it set up where I can make a monthly donation, say on a certain day every month? I know with the last site, and have heard from others, that "sometimes" it would be taken out twice a month for the same amount. It's no big deal, I guess. I'm not, and this is probably going to sound retarded, but I'm not familiar with how Paypal works. I know paypal wasn't used on the old board unless you called it, "Gettin' Paid Pal". I kid. But, I was just curious.

I'm not sure of the answer to your question, Sea, and Michelle has taken a well-deserved evening off.

I can tell you this--paypal is easy even for a non-tech person like me. You can either link it to your bank account, or just have the amount you want to send charged to your credit card. Takes about 2 minutes to sign up for when you go to their website. So far, all the donations we've received (and for which we are humbly grateful) have been through paypal.

We definitely are NOT trying to make this website a for-profit effort, and I'm not sure that we'll ever be set up to take credit cards or anything like that. Michelle can fill you in further tomorrow on the best way to help.

While it's really sweet of you to want to help us out with the costs, the best thing is just to have you and all the rest of our family back HERE together again.

Thanks Verb, for the timely response.

What I'm asking, is, that if I set up an account with PayPal, can I have it just take my "donation" monthly without me having to "pay" it once a month? Sort of like automatic withdrawl method?

I said a lot of stuff without actually saying much, huh?

I'll go look at the paypal site and see if I can figure that out.

I emailed PayPal about this. I couldn't find any answers just looking at their site. Hopefully, they'll let us know today.

I'm checking with Paypal as well. I know i'm going to add a paypal link here on the site, that you can just click on to pay, but i don't know about Paypal doing billing for a specific company on a monthly basis. I'm waiting to hear back as well.


There is a built in subscription service on this site, in the control panel. It can be set up to take monthly payments, i'm pretty sure. I'm checking into it now.

I appreciate all the interest in helping out with the site. Very much.

I was a semi-regular visitor to the O-State.com site a few years ago when we played each other for three years straight, and really came to respect Oklahoma State, its fans and all it stands for. Heck, Ryno (I guess it was him) gave me the tag "coolest non-OSU fan" which I considered a great honor (and still do).

When the news first hit that Fedora may be our new head coach, that was the first site I went to, and I was sad to see it wasn't there, and I obviously have no idea why. I am glad I found this new version of the site!

Best of luck in everything, Cowboys (and girls)!
