Haha, diolch yn fawr :)
I still need to get used to hearing welsh spoken conversationally though :P

I've never really thought of it as "studying", seems a bit weird :P

-just about to sort out payment for the intermediate, quite exciting really :P

Ah! I'm getting really confused by this payment thing! :s Would I be able to like "opt out" of payments during holidays (unless I get a job in the mean time) just to make sure that I don't "miss" payments or go overdrawn? (sorry to drag this out)

Cheers

Mmm, not really - the automatic month by month thing is very much how all our structures are built now.

Maybe we could set you up with access and leave you to send one-off Paypal payments through whenever you can, on an honour basis? That's about the only way round it I can see...:)

That would be better, at least until I can guarentee the money each month :S at least so long as it's okay by you, I'm sure we can work it out though... Wel, dwi'n gobeithio :P

Aran, is there a way that students can pay in bulk when they get their student loan? That way they can forget about it until the next semester - perhaps 2 or 3 payments a year? I'm happy to pay monthly but some people might prefer it. Just a thought.

Hi Vaughan - no, I'm afraid we just don't have the manpower to add that kind of extra admin burden. Monthly payments are particularly important for us because they can be set up and then left to run - and we're trying to keep everything apart from content creation to an absolute minimum.

The only way we can do it otherwise is on an honour system - which we're happy to do every once in a blue moon for people who have become part of the community, but which obviously wouldn't be the right pattern for us to offer as standard.

Would I be able to send payments manually every month, rather than automatic, that way if I can't afford it I can just let you know and something can be worked out?

Sure - just send to admin[at]saysomethingin.com via Paypal...:)

And I think you need to fix your avatar...:wink: And look up at the top of the board, where you'll see the members lounge, and your welcome thread:

Or better still, make a direct payment via your bank to our bank (they charge us less!). Details on the members' joining page.

Payment has been sent (via paypal this time, may change in the future) I'll get cracking on the first lesson tomorrow afternoon as I have no lectures :D
