Donating to TweakGuides
When I first opened TweakGuides.com, I knew that it would evolve over time, but I was adamant that it would always remain free, would not be covered in intrusive or annoying advertising, and would not have the explicit or implicit commercial bias that plagues many other sites. My primary aim has always been to provide quality, accurate, useful information in clear easy-to-understand English which benefits the widest number of PC users.
Fortunately readers appreciate these values, and TweakGuides has become quite popular. I receive a great deal of moral support from readers all around the world. However sadly the reality is that a site which provides quality original material requires a great deal of my time and effort, and yet releasing this material for free on a relatively ad-free, unbiased website means that my income is quite low and seems to be declining. This is obviously unsustainable in the long run.
So instead I ask for your support to help keep the site the way it was intended. If you find the information on this site useful, and want to see it continue, please consider donating.
Purchasing the TweakGuides Tweaking Companion
The best way to support the site and also get something in return is to purchase a copy of the TweakGuides Tweaking Companion, available for Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. This extensive PDF e-book has no intrusive DRM and only costs $4.50.
Donating via PayPal
Donations via PayPal are the preferred method. PayPal is completely secure, and you can donate any amount that you think is appropriate by clicking the button below and following the prompts:
People donating $10US or more will also receive a secure download link to the latest TweakGuides Tweaking Companion for Windows 8 Deluxe Edition PDF within 24 hours as a token of my appreciation. If you prefer a different TGTC version, please specify, either in the comments field for Paypal, or via Email to me right after donating. However, if you are donating simply to get the TweakGuides Tweaking Companion Deluxe Edition PDF, please use the links on this page instead to purchase a copy. Regardless of the amount donated, unfortunately there is no subscription plan for the Deluxe Edition, so again the main reason to donate would be if you want to support the site.
Note: If you're using any spam/junk email filtering software or settings, please make sure the domain TweakGuides.com is not blocked, as otherwise you won't get my return email.
Donating by Other Means
Unfortunately there are no other ways I can currently accept donations. It would be inappropriate for me to handle your credit card details directly for example, nor will I hand out my bank account details to others, and sending cash through the postal system is not wise.
Thank you for your support.
