Sadly I can't donate money to this because of paypal doesn't like me for some weird reason.
Also I think that not having a link to the forums is quite bad idea. Yes, the forums are nowadays more often dead than not, but that doesn't mean you should kill them by not having a link on the main page. The fact that you guys have an official forum for your band where you actually respond to fans has always felt as a sign of how nice you guys are. I don't see a reason on why the facebook would be better than official forums.
