    Hell, the bf takes 4 travel hours every day and works in a group home - a car would make the travel better and moving the kids around to school, drs etc....I couldn't really see getting someone else a car.

    dionysus - I sympathise with your bf. I'm the same for travel, it's a nightmare. A car would just be a dream come true and I thought I'd give the gofundme site a bash :oops: Thanx for reading and for your post.

    For some reason I don't think this is a place for people to ask for money. It doesn't feel right.

    I suggest you post it on your Facebook or something instead or we'll risk see hundreds of them here soon.

    Your intentions may be a good, but for a car for yourself is a hard sell - we could frankly, most of us, use a car.
    If it were wheelchairs, etc, I could see it being viewed differently

    Like I said, nevermind :)

    I thought the site was a great idea for people to help each other out. Pay it forward type of thing.

    Helping a stranger get new wheels based on the unknown intentions of someone relatively new..probably not.

    By the way, did you clear it with the admin before posting?

    wow...

    Firstly, not new, very very old wheels haha I was looking at spending about 500 max on the car the rest is for insurance.

    Secondly, you are right I am quite new here but the point of that site is to help others.

    Thirdly, nope I didn't realise I was supposed to run posts by the admin as I haven't in the past.

    wow what?
    it is only common courtesy to ask your host before using his site as the vehicle (whoops pun) to solicit funds, no matter the cause

    wow at the attitude that is coming across in the posts.

    I seem to have offended you by trying to use the other site and posting a link here, I'm sorry for that but you know what, I'm not going to defend any actions to you.

    er Claire...why not help yourself? looking back at your posts, you obviously gamble.

    Let's take the tact out.
    You spend $ online gambling and have the brass ask for others to help you get wheels. You want the best of both and someone to foot the bill. If you can play online, you can buy your own dang car.

    edit: max or bryan can sort it, decide whether someone soliciting funds should defend the action.

    Oh simmer down.

    I won't defend anything. I have explained my actions and I only posted here because this is a forum I am on regularly reading.

    The section is for raising money... Anyway

    It's not a matter of "offending" anyone, it's a matter of pissing people off for having abused the site. Big difference.

    Your ask for money to buy something hardly qualifies as a charity. In fact you might want to have a peek at the Posting Rules regarding "personal agenda".

    This has been totally twisted into such a negative thing.

    I read the post bryan sent out, i thought the site was a great idea - such a good concept for people to raise money for various things.

    I didn't mean to break any rules.

    it isn't negative - it's pragmatic...youre asking people to spend their hard earned money while you spend your own

    as to Bryan..hello..it's his damn site

    as to other 'charities' theyre vetted before going live

    My first post in a while, the idea is a good one but one that could be misused and bring in non gamers by the folds , we have members on here who need help with new wheelchairs and other medical issues and also the children of members whom have passed that need help with education costs, Ted and Pina's children come to mind.

    I would give to funds that help our members and their families that we have come to know over the years , I do believe in what goes around comes around and we all should help when we can.

    A car does make life easier but its not the end of the world if you lack one for a while.


    I do wish you luck.

    Laurie
