    On a quick scan I can't see it. I'm sure it used to be in the top left of the main screen. Asking Aurifex as he might know.

    I'll fire £5 in as well, mate.

    Edit: I realize not everyone can or even should do this but seeing how I don't really contribute to the forum in a constructive way (translations) and I have a spare five spot, then why not.

    That's a bit like how I feel. It'll be a long time before I'm earning donation thank-yous from the painted people, so I think it would be in order to put in a bit myself.

    I don't see it either. Furthermore, people who I know used to have "Patronus" banners (indicating they've made a donation to the forum) have lost them (of course, we all lost our banners, but they also lost the "Patronus" title along with them.) It seems like the forum no longer wants to take our money. ;)

    It's not a problem I am too familiar with... :)

    Same here. No donate button. Maybe, as a mod, you get to see things we don't. I have tried using the link on Cinefactus' signature but it won't let me proceed.

    Same here.

    Edit: apart from trying the link. But that doesn't work.

    Does Godmy see the donate button? I wonder if it mightn't be, perhaps, that only former donators get to see it.

    Donors. 'Donate' is a back-formation, like 'enthuse', and came in for hefty criticism at the time it was coined. I think most people have accepted it now, though I'm not sure if 'enthuse' can claim the same.

    Incidentally, I tried logging in with different browsers to see if it made a difference with respect to the button (it didn't), but I had to try to log in with Opera three times before it accepted the password. I know you're thinking I can't type properly, and you're generally right, but it was an assigned unmemorable numerical password, so I C&P'd it. In other words, I know that whatever was on my clipboard was rejected twice and allowed in the third time. If anyone can offer anything approaching an explanation, I'd be grateful.

    I realized right after writing "donators" that "donors" was the more usual word, but I looked up "donator" to see if it existed, and it does, so I decided to leave it.

    I have that as well. But I take it you don't have the button I showed above?

    I have it as well.

    When I click "Monthly Server Costs", I get to a page where there's a "donate" option as well.

    Did you donate in the past?

    Since the recent change, it's been visible from the Latin Fora home page.

    So it isn't only former donors who can see it, nor is it only mods, since you're neither.
