By donating money to OneGuyFromBarlick, you help OGFB to continue to provide and maintain a strong presence in the local Community website projects. OneGuyFromBarlick continues to grow at a significant rate, with large numbers of new users joining the site each month. Through your financial contribution, you can help offset the expense involved in the hosting of this site and the development of new enhancements and features, as well as help fund our plans to expand the OneGuyFromBarlick site and service offering (including the redesign of a number of existing services to be more feature rich and user-friendly).
No, we ARE NOT enabling donations to try to "save the site". OneGuyFromBarlick is not in financial trouble, nor is it going away. We are adding this donation feature because OneGuyFromBarlick hosting is not free and we want to continue to develop and add the features and functionality that we know you want. If you like what we are doing for OneGuyFromBarlick; if you like what we are doing for the local on-line community, now you can make a donation and help us out.
Yes, since OneGuyFromBarlick accepts donations through PayPal, we are able to accept contributions from many different countries. PayPal will handle the currency conversion on your behalf. Additional information regarding currency conversion is provided on the PayPal website.
To the best of our knowledge, no. If you live outside the United Kingdom and you believe this donation may be tax-deductible, please consult local tax laws and/or a tax attorney. To the best of our knowledge, donations to OneGuyFromBarlick are not tax-deductible anywhere in the world.
OneGuyFromBarlick works hard to provide you a free-of-charge local community website. You will also get a special 'glow' around your member name (IE only) and a special contributor icon. Both of which will be displayed just about everywhere your name appears around the site. You will also have the happiness of knowing that you have helped to support the world's greatest local community website!
We cannot guarantee that as a donor you would receive a higher level of support than we already provide, but may well take this in to account when processing your requests.
We maintain a Supporters page (a publicly-accessible page) of donors and their comments. If you opted-out of display of your donation by stating such in the PayPal comments area at the time of donation, your name will appear on that page as 'Anonymous'.
You may remove your name from the Supporters page after-the-fact (changed to 'Anonymous' or to your member name) by contacting an administrator of the OneGuyFromBarlick website, and they verify the information.

OneGuyFromBarlick is an open source content management system with nearly unlimited potential in terms of extensibility. The only limitation being imagination, time, and money.
If you require that the OGFB software suite be implemented on your own website along with your own logo's, design and content then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
If you, your business or organization is looking for the implementation or creation of a specific OneGuyFromBarlick module or enhancement, we invite you to contact the OGFB Development Team about Development Sponsorship opportunities. If the module satisfies a general need and has benefit for the entire community it is probably best implemented as a core framework service. The benefit of a core module/enhancement is that it ensures the feature remains compatible with future product development and is maintained through each software upgrade.
Funding a Development Sponsorship project increases the priority of the module or enhancement and allows the OGFB Development Team to focus on its creation/implementation. This allows you to confidently plan the availability of OGFB product features within the scheduling expectations of your organization.
Depending on the scope of your specific requirements, sponsoring the implementation of a key module or enhancement feature in OneGuyFromBarlick will likely be less costly than investing in a comparable Content Management System.
If you wish to pursue a sponsorship opportunity, please contact email@example.com
