So this is crazy, apparently it did charge the donation for January as it won't work with my prepaid card anymore.. weird.. not as easy as I thought but hopefully my donation goes through ok. Best I can do for tonight.

I have changed settings to charge first donation immediately, then next on every month first working day.

OK cool. Worse case I have to remake my donation next month. It was a prepaid visa I received for a rebate. I was only planning on using the balance here anyways. Glad I could contribute.

24hrs and we'll see if my card balance goes to zero with that donation. If not, I will remake it as stated.

In Patreon panel I see you status as "declined".

Yes it didn't go through, the card is still showing a balance. I'm going to try to redo it now.

Apparently my idea to use this prepaid card is not working. it won't go through, so, I will just make a donation with another card and use this one where I would have used the other. Not a problem. Trickier than I thought to support this, but I WILL get money to you.

I think the goals on Patreon site shows clearly where founds will go...

I just need to manage where I have to put my time. The project don't get any funds from long time (only space in server room and it's electricity).
I'm not an CAMK employee (never bin)...
Currently I just have choice - continue managing the project or spend my spare time on other work.


Hi Krzysztof,

Are you trying to say that you would like to get paid for managing this project?

Why wouldn't he? I don't see anything wrong with that. It could at least defray the costs of his own dedication for years, after all he is the originator of the project, isn't he?

Until today I thought this was run by an institution, not just one person.


It is under institution but... Without funding (before had a grant which expired some time ago).
The only current financial support is a space and electricity in its servers site.

So you have been keeping this project alive on your own, without any grant.

I think this is very commendable, it shows your dedication. I hope this project gets even more volunteers.

Also, now it's not simply "setup, run, forgot" kind of project. It require loads of work, as some major work need to be done, including major tasks regarding to server updates (last just finished, but more in progress), server maintaining (there is quite complicated infrastructure as the project operate on large data bases) etc...

All of this tasks should be done on daily basis, not just when I have some free time between other jobs...

You need someone to assist you with this. Or are there already other people besides yourself taking care of the daily maintenance?

On server side I'm the only person here, but I got some support now :)
