Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness.
I am kind to everyone, but when someone is unkind to me, weak is not what you are going to remember about me.

Of course we should be paying for Goods and Services when using Paypal!This way you get a proper receipt of your purchase.
If you are just sending money to Family or Friends that may not present a proper receipt in the eyes of customs.

It is best to use # number tag given in your PM as that is the closest thing among your username that identifies you to LT in this GB.
Original lists are not updated yet but they will most likely show your proper # given in PM .

Are we supposed to post that we’ve paid?

Preferably not. 555 messages with just that info would be even more annoying than the 100 or so this far. I’ve got to admit this message is not very helpful either, but it’s my quota for “i paid” posts, with the added benefit of someone possibly not posting a “paypal sent” message.

Just to quell a few questions I see being repeated around here:

YOUR NUMBER ON YOUR PM WILL MOST LIKELY DIFFER FROM YOUR NUMBER NO POST #3!!! This is because Post #3 is NOT CURRENT and people have dropped out since it had last been updated. Chances are, your PM # will be 1 or 2 or 3 numbers smaller than what you see in Post #3. I assume it is wisest to use the number given to you on the PM when you make your payment.

USE “PAY FOR GOODS AND SERVICES” INSTEAD OF “FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!” Someone correct me if I’m wrong but the chances of having Neals PayPal account suspended increases substantially when 555 “family and friends” across the globe suddenly send him money for no reason. From the perspective of PayPal (who doesn’t know nor care what a BLF GT is), this type of activity is extremely suspicious and could look like he is attempting some kind of scam, or that he is the victim of some hack or scam. The extra $.96 is so that PayPal knows that this is kind of a business transaction (and the fact that they added this into the payment should be a hint that they want you to use “goods and services”).

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO POST THAT YOU HAVE PAID although there is nothing saying you cannot. We are all excited about this project and the methods to release our excitement are limited. Smile

Anyhow, I want to seriously thank The Miller and everyone else who actively made the GT a reality. You guys have put some real time, elbow grease, and brain power into this project for almost a year and as far as I can tell, have not gotten paid for any of your efforts. If anything, you guys should at least be getting your own GTs for free. Please know that at the very least, your work is appreciated by a heck of a lot of people here!

oh yeah, I almost forgot to say… “PP sent!”

Ordered 2 GT separately.
Need to cancel 1 GT. Please give my 2nd order to a fellow BLF.
Payment sent for 1GT via PayPal.
PM sent to Neal and The Miller as I screwed up on the numbers in the Paypal payment note.
My sincere apologies to The GT Team.

Since thats no “goods” will sent to us with this payments, I think phone number can add to note when you pay for rest of payment.. (and GT will send to you).

Initially, I thought that too but I concluded it’s best to let the people in charge of this project make that decision.

I ended up PMing both Neal and The MIller with a brief apology. Surely they will understand (mentally preparing to receive a light with “NO PHONE NUMBER” engraved instead of “BLF GT”)

Hmmm I made the mistake of omitting my phone number as well Facepalm

Could Neal or TheMiller please let us know what to do as I dont think they want dozens of pm’s about it.

Cheers David

Nothing to see here folks, move along...

Guys slow down. Take time reading the details in the message, write it all down before you open PayPal . Check and double check before hitting send.
Remember this is an international transaction, don’t forget to put your country in the address.

Many thanks to Neal and the team, I don’t envy you sorting through all those emails.

This is very exciting, I wonder who will be the first to post they’ve received they’re light and that first impressions, hopefully that person won’t have to wait long for darkness to arrive and can post beam shots for all of us still waiting our turn.
Good luck everyone… LOL

I honestly can not believe the amount of issues people are having making one simple payment.

There is literally 4 simple pieces of information required and the team has already covered two of them for you in the PM!

You have 5 days to make the payment! Stop rushing and get it right, all you are doing is causing a headache for the team. Imagine receiving 555 PP payments and then having to go through and cross reference the payments and emails/PMs to confirm all the ones who put in the wrong details or no details.

Please guys take a breath and don't worry.

 

The world is not lost if you accidentally forgot to add your phone number, you real name, your adress or something else or if you used the wrong number.

 

Let them manage the PM's and the payments.

Neal is keeping a list with everyone who has paid so as long as your blf name and/or the correct number from the pm is in the description of the payment it will be oke in the end.

 

If you did not add your blf name and / or the correct number from the pm the description of the payment, please pm the Miller or Neal the information needed together with you PayPal email and the transaction ID.

Yes things will get sorted if things needs sorting. Yet providing the info correct with number given in PM makes it easier for Neal for sure Wink
