Donations are online again
Posted 14 February 2011 - 10:06 PM
It certainly has been a while since the Donations were shut down, and for those who wanted to contribute a little something to our cause, i apologize for why it took so long.
As some remember, we had a high post-limit on the Full Games section (27+ Posts to view) to not fall into the 'file-sharing' category on the Internet, we are more in the 'brains' category after all. (no, not the Zombie 'braaaains' kinda thing)
(also that high post limit was kinda absurd, now that we look back at it, now it's down to a very manageable 3)
While Donations were on, some people came to the ridiculous idea of donating their way into the full games section, and this was not OK.
Things here are free for everybody, and we intend to keep it that way forever, i shut down donations to prevent said terrible above.
Things have changed since then, and i was getting a good amount of 'hey, can i donate?' messages over the time.
We do not like to beg for money (or have an urgent need for it) as some other Websites or Guys on Youtube do to pay for our online services (the little banner above helps a bit covering the costs), so we've come up with another good cause for donations.
From every Donation we get, we will donate 50% of it all to the Wine Project, since these guys are magic behind the Wrappers, and they do lots & lots of work on Wine.
For our part of the Donations, we can make little contests in the Forum or buy other things that could help us all, like a mac Cydia repository or a server to help seeding Wrappers or Engines.
If you do want to donate, have a look at the top right of the Forum or the Blog, instructions are there.
(currently Paypal only, Google Checkout can be if enough people bug me into it ^^ )
Every Donator get's a nice golden 'Donator' Badge below his Avatar (example: waves), and he/she will be added to the 'Donator' Group.
Amount you want to donate is up to you.
Don't forget to write your Forum username into the Paypal description field before you press 'submit', to let us know who donated.
If you miss this, you can still email your Paypal transaction ID to firstname.lastname@example.org
Adding you to the Donator Group can sometimes take up to a few hours, time-zones and work are at fault here, some of us have to sleep sometimes ^_^ (no, not at work of course...)

I would like to think everybody who takes one wrapper would donate a little something as they all get something out of it. (But unfortunately i know that's not how the world works)
I like my shiny badge though!
