If possible, how?

the reason I wanted to ask for donations from my phpbb forum is the center for the community forum phpbb Indonesia. and that my donation will be used to buy my domain. because I still wear Free domain.
The answer is yes please admin.

phpBB is free already.

You can install a MOD that allows you to collect donations, if you would like.

Well, you can't "make" anyone donate, as then it would not be a donation; it would be a payment.

However, if you want people to be more likely than not to donate, here are some things to help:
1) Place a non-obtrusive donation link/button somewhere on your site that your users will see but will not get in their way or appear to be over-done.
2) Spend time with your users. They are more likely to donate if they know that their money is going to a person that they like and that they know deserves it and will properly use it.
3) Ask for donations. I don't mean every time you post, but here and there, it can be acceptable to occasionally say something to the effect of "and if you feel particularly appreciative of the services we provide, you are welcome to support us with a small donation".
4) Provide incentive for donating. Perhaps a contributors or supporters group with a special forum access for anyone who has donated a certain amount. Or maybe people who donate a certain amount don't have to see ads. Of course, keep in mind that some people consider this kind of thing less of a donation incentive and more as something they are paying to receive, which is different.
5) State a need and a goal. Let's say you are wanting to do a project to benefit your board and you need X amount of money to achieve it. Put a portion of the board's current funds toward it and then open it up for donations. Adding a progress bar can help, as then users will know that you still need a certain amount more to reach your goal and will be likely to donate toward it. But do be honest and don't put up some never-ending goal just so you keep getting donations.

Those are by no means the only ways to encourage donation on to your board, but they should get you on the right track.

Are you saying that you can't afford $5.00 to $15.00 per year for a domain? Unless you're using a free Web host, I would think that your yearly Web hosting bill would be more than that.

As another suggestion besides those that David provided, you could include a donation link in your signature (on your board, not here). You could also use something like the ChipIn BBCode.

Get rid of those pop-up ads. You'll be lucky to get any members with that garbage on your site, nevermind donations. :x

Aren't the phpBB header images at the top of the forum copyrighted? Or are they GPL?

They are owned by and licensed from Vlad Gerasimov for use here at phpBB.com. Others may of course obtain licenses from Mr. Gerasimov.

For personal websites(ie not making a profit), you can use Vlad's images, but the bottom of the pages containing the images must contain a clickable link to his site such as :

Code: Select all

Header illustrations by <a href="http://www.vladstudio.com/">Vlad Gerasimov</a>
You must also host said images yourself.

Don't beg. Nobody is going to sympathize with you. Go buy a domain for less then ten dollars. If you seriously cannot afford one, you shouldn't be running a website.

I do not beg, but I wanted to see first, whether the forum would help me improve ... if I had a lot of forum members, then I would try to buy a domain :D
