    We are now an Amazon affiliate! This means you can support The Hall while using Amazon regularly as you already would. This is completely free to you, they will kick a small percentage of every purchase back to us for providing the link.

    Be sure to update your bookmarks, especially on your wife's computer!

    Possible "app" support coming in the future but for now just use a normal web browser. I am still on a "trial account" until multiple transactions go through - so even buying a 99 ebook after following this link will help get things set up.

    By the end of the weekend I'll have a direct donation button set up but this is a great way to support the forum at no extra cost to you.

    ______________

    Short disclosure on funds usage:

    All income generated will go to the following items in this order:

    1. Paying for our site's hosting service (our main expense)
    2. Updating and maintenance of the new forum, which is running on a premium software suite
    3. New forum features, these installations are very low cost and should begin happening before 2018
    4. Any remaining funds will roll over into the next year's hosting costs

    Are you able to set up the same for Canada (Amazon.ca)?

    Edit: do you know if the credit still works if one were to navigate over to .ca after clicking that link?

    Not yet but I will have Canada and UK support within a week. For now it's just US residents. Either way we'll have a Paypal option on the way for anyone worldwide to support that way if they'd like.

    I sell old video games on ebay to fund my groceries, it's a very delicate microeconomy but the system works

    I am planning on getting a pair of netbooks though amazon.uk soon, so that would be good.

    Thanks to everyone who's helped me test it, everything's working fine - be sure to make that your bookmark though because clicking it only lasts 24 hours and/or when you close your browser window!

    More links for Amazon services here, these will also benefit The Hall:

    Free Prime is a popular one, I'd recommend doing this in November so you can get Black Friday deals

    Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial

    If you read ebooks there's a free program Amazon has to use on any device, it's free but they still support us for linking you to it:

    Amazon.com - Read eBooks using the FREE Kindle Reading App on Most Devices

    Unlimited Kindle books for a month
    Join Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial

    No they know about that haha, also no commission on alcohol sales since Amazon does sell wine.

    You can trade in old books/games/movies and other things by shipping them to Amazon and they'll give you a gift card to use, we do get credit for that http://amzn.to/2xyKCiS this is a part of the site few people know about, their prices aren't great but it beats having a garage sale or having stuff you don't use sit around forever.

    Amazon terminated our affiliate account, I'll try to see what the deal is on Monday. They're claiming I'm not the site owner even though I am (?) I didn't expect them to approve it that's why I removed our "Make Forums Great Again" subtitle for the week in hopes their cuckmods wouldn't immediately blacklist us.

    I do have a Paypal account set up that isn't going anywhere, you can send donations to winbot@thehall.us using this link https://www.paypal.com/myaccount/transfer/send
