digitalmars.D.announce - Issues Donating or Registering for DConf via Flipcause

Flipcause released a major upgrade to their platform last week 
that unified several different components (donations, events, 
online stores, etc) into a single system they call Universal 
Checkout.

I've just received an email informing me of two things:

* there's a flood of support requests right now, so it could take 
much longer than usual to get a response (up to 48 hours, where I 
usually hear from them within two).

* there's scheduled downtime this Wednesday, Jan 30, from 1:00am 
- 3:00am PST.

 From this, I will tentatively assume until I hear otherwise that 
the issues folks have been experiencing lately are related to the 
platform upgrade. I've sent an email to the support team, but 
likely won't hear from them for a couple of days. I'll cross my 
fingers and hope that whatever maintenance they're doing 
Wednesday resolves our issues.

In the meantime, if you have issues donating to the General Fund 
or the new Forum Server campaign, or registering for DConf 
through Flipcause, then please use PayPal. The registration link 
for DConf is here:

https://dconf.org/2019/registration.html

The donation link here:

https://dlang.org/foundation/donate.html

The registration link is preconfigured for DConf. If you donate 
through PayPal for the Forum Server Campaign, please include a 
note on the form letting us know, otherwise your donation will go 
to the general fund and won't count toward the $2000 target.

No chance... I updated my Master Card with the Secure Code thing, but the same result again. I tried again 2 times: only result => Your session has expired. Flipcause has been a better usage experience before. Sure I can give my 25 bucks via Paypal, but this is not the idea behind, isn't it?

Go ahead and go through PayPal if Flipcause doesn't work for you. They're working on the issues right now. They've credited our account with some money and have been running tests on our account and others. They'll work it out eventually, I'm sure.
