Thanks Makky!

I know it is tricky.  Just made an extra donation now to help!
Thanks MrSydney, one thing I haven't looked at or really considered yet is insurance. Mods(and all members) need to run a very strict policy regarding defamatory material, unsubstantiated  material, no heated arguments, no negative posts about lapidary suppliers and other businesses as the forum can't afford legal action against it even if it is baseless. Legal action against the forum for any reason would most likely see it close. I am hopefully this never happens.
CheersMB

It should also be noted that MB has so far not placed any new advertising or commercial links on the Forum, or even placed links for people to purchase his wonderful faceting design books (https://facetingdesigns.com/).

Just so you know - when I do that I'm not seeing any 'Donations' block to click.

That's strange, wonder what's going on. What do you see on your browser in the area highlighted in red in the image below?



Thanks,
RC

Mine has the donation button on the home page, same as yours, RC.

I'm using Google Chrome and no box!  I'll try another browser.

I can't work out how to insert the image I've saved with the snip tool here or in a PM to Makky - but I could upload it to the gallery and it appears to be visible.

I'll now try a different browser.

Solved!  See additional image just uploaded to gallery.

There is a REALLY small button that toggles whether the items on the far right are visible or not!  It is so small I've been totally missing it!  You may want to make the button larger and, if an option, to default to be open at the start.

Just donated some more!  ;D

I am now using Chrome having a look now, I might look at changing the donation block to the center.
Thanks
