Greetings,

Before I endow you with yet another fine example of technical prowess ineptitude/cognitive dysfunction to endure, just a (relatively brief?) "thank you!" to you folks @ BOINCstats for taking the time and effort to create and maintain such a huge collaborative project, which appears (from a layperson's point-of-view...) to involve coordinating with a hundred or more <?> projects and teams, at any given time. I applaud you for your efforts and success, and I will gladly provide a small, yearly donation, despite having little to no understanding or appreciation of how many hundreds (thousands?) of hours you have dedicated, or monetary investments you've personally contributed to make BOINCstats available to the public. Regardless, it's clear, to me, you need all the help you can get, with so much on your proverbial "plate"!

And now, on to the show... I recently made a small, repeating donation of 25 Euros/year, via PayPal, to BOINCstats. I recall reading that, with an average donation of 2 Euros/month, an option should be made available to remove the ads, when visiting BOINCstats. Here's a brief overview of my shortcomings:

1. Logged-in to BOINCstats
2. Opened BOINCstats "Settings" page at "https://boincstats.com/en/bam/boincstatsSettings/"
3. Found "Show ads (disabling requires a minimum average donation of €2.00 per month in the last year)" checkbox, near top of page
4. Attempted to remove the aforementioned check from checkbox field, which appears "greyed-out"
5. Failed
6. Did quick computation to calculate whether 25 Euros/year averaged out to at least 2 Euros/month; it appears to, just barely, meet this criteria
7. Thunk about it, re-read prerequisite(s) necessary to remove ads from website
8. Might be because I haven't waited at least a year after donating?
8. Decided that "Tier-2 Support" would likely be necessary to remedy my technical shortcomings

Thank you for all you have done/continue to do to make BOINCstats a success/reality! I apologize, in advance, if I missed something blatantly obvious

-Tim- (aka Phlewyd)

Sorry, the function didn't look at recurring donations, that's fixed now.
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.

Actually, the last two times I've logged-in, the option didn't save

Is there a "save changes" button I'm missing somewhere?

Thanks!

Strange... when I login, the "ad-removal" feature seems a little intermittent, in function? Not sure how the setting is "saved", via the website, or via a cookie on my computer?



I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, regardless, but I figure the BOINCstats admins might want to know?

Take care and thanks!
