Here we are again at the end of a year.  

Thanks to the common effort, the forum and the website are still in place.

This year, we started to discuss to find a new development team for Openelement.  Unfortunately, the software rights owners refused to give them away for free.  Therefore, there is no plan for Openelement's evolution other than new elements in the short term.  Despite this, with brolysan, we continue to keep the whole thing viable.

We will soon have to renew domain names, hosting and database fees and this comes with a cost.  In order to achieve this, we request volunteer participation to gather the fundings.

As a reminder, you can make a donation to support us and allow us to maintain openElement's software, WEB site and forum availability. https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=PKJD7BLUZ59RQ

Training videos were produced on a volunteer base and are still available for free on youtube.  These videos received near by 10000 viewings since since year 2020 therefore we are far away from getting money back from Youtube.

We need to collect "around a hundred euros" for the coming year.  

We haven't paid ourselves with last year's fundings but if donors wish to add a contribution as a "thank you" for us, we will accept it but only if there are surpluses and only if doners mention it with their donation.

Happy New Year's Eve everyone.

I figured that you may need the following explanation on the link: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=PKJD7BLUZ59RQ

If you follow the link you will find a paypal donation to Brice CALATAYUD.  It's not clear who he is for every one because of these nicknames.

He is known here as brolysan

He's the one who's proposing templates

The one who's providing support on the forum

The one who convinced OE owner to let him maintain the service when it was to abandonned

The one who found hosing for the forum without paying a fortune

Since he manages the hosting, he manages the funding.

Do not hesitate to provide minimum funding, every small donation will be wellcome.  We are the two remaining support guys on this forum and we won't add any personal money on it since we have done enough.  

If we can't get funding we will have to definitely close openElement.
