You should receive an email if you make a donation. Check your SPAM folder, and please let me know ASAP if you did not receive the email with the activation code.

Please note that donation is not compulsary or necessary. Snakeoil OS is designed to be free, and will remain so.  Thanks

My home Internet connection is down. Google Australia NBN and you'd find I'm now one of many with this problem.

Unfortunatley PayPal donations is performed from home. This means donations are no longer processed automatically. If you have donated and not receive a code, it's because of this. Please be patient while I try to get the Internet fixed, and also find time to process the emails.

And the Internet is working again. And donation processing are working... 

On hindsight my post above make it sound like there are a lot of donations coming in.. There really is not, and that's how I like it. :) Again a reminder that donations aren't necessary - Snakeoil will still sound good whether you're using the free edition or the activated edition.

This project's donations is really a social experiment on how much people are willing to fork out for snakeoils.

PayPal notfication appears to be breaking again. I'm relying on the email notification from PayPal to process this automatically, but for some reason PayPal is not sending me these emails now.

Please bear with me while I find out what's wrong, and I'd also explore alternative methods (WebHooks, etc).

So, I've been receiving emails about users who can't activate their forum accounts, and my standard response is - check your spam folder. This don't come up often, about once every 2-3 months?

Yesterday, I've written another standard "check your spam folder" post. Then it finally dawned on me. Could it be? Could the missing payPal messages be in my spam folder? So I checked, and yes, the emails are there!

I've made some changes and now all PayPal donations should come through. Took me a while, but hopefully we're finally there.

Turns out I need to restart the application when I made the change Big Grin, so things weren't completely working before. Moved those messages out of spam and restarted the application. Hopefully all working now..

Based on my pass records, let's not celebrate too early just yet Confused .
