    Dear members the recent attacks have caused us to look seriously into investing a lot of hard $$$$ into keeping DFI online, the expenditure henceforth would surpass the collective effort of just a handful , All voluntary donations on a monthly basis are therefore much welcome and appreciated.

    Donations via paypal :- Donate button

    Donations via local bank transfers :- PM me

    Donations via cheque :- PM me

    We appreciate and thank you for your support in everyway , dont forget apart from donations visiting and posting on the forum daily is also a very good way of supporting us.

    guys chip in with what ever little you can, and dont go by the donation goal amount of 150 usd for this month because the requirement is many-many times that, and dont feel only big amounts have to be donated, those who can do the bigger amount please do but others dont shy away if the amount is not as big. whatever can be donated, please donate.

    Contributions to DFI

    Starting this thread for those who make any contribution big or small to just say that they have.

    Simple one sentence. No need to mention any amount as even Rs 100 from a genuine member is appreciated as a gesture of support and solidarity with DFI.

    Those who cant, well your support to just come here and post and not go to Pakistan or Fakistan forum means a lot as well for us.

    Starts with me,

    "I stand by DFI and I have done my bit"

    Hi AV & Guys.....I would be happy to make a small contribution like $50 USD, but I dont want to give my credit-card info over this website given all the hacking that is done to this site. I dont have a Paypal account.

    DD.....If you can provide me with an address, I will be happy to mail you a Cashier's Check. ( Please specify who I should make the Cheque out to)

    Remember Obama became a President beating all odds through contributions that were hardly large!

    Every penny counts!

    All those sending contributions, please ask for confirmation. We will send you a PM to confirm the amount.

    Can I suggest something? Back in the day when I first started foruming, I was a member of several forums on what was then known as Ezboard. Nowadays, it is known as Yuku (yuku.com), and basically what it is is a company that offers both free and paid discussion boards. There used to be thousands of forums on Ezboard, and most of these were absolutely free. The paid forums have more features, but both are essentially immune from Ddos attacks like the ones DFI is constantly suffering from.

    I'd like to suggest that the admins of DFI move this forum to Yuku, thereby insulating ourselves from further attacks. I am aware of the sacrifices that have been made by the mods and admins in terms of effort, money and time but to keep such ano ambitious project alive in face of such massive attacks becomes unsustainable after a while, donations or not.
