Contributing Member Update


Just wanted to let everyone know that we have switched billing providers, so if you have any problems please let me know ASAP. I am also looking for ways to make becoming a contributing member more attractive as membership has slowed as of late. What features/options/whatever would you like to see? How can we make the system better? Thanks for your feedback.

For a refresher - http://www.linuxquestions.org/member/index.php

Ok, I know this has been done to death, but is there absolutely no way you would consider accepting Money Orders? I dearly want to help out LQ, but I don't have a Credit Card, nor do I have any plans to get one.

I would assume that there are quite a few under 18's, and starving students for whom credit cards are not an option. Also, there may be a few people such as I, who detest dealing with banks for any reason, (I find it morally and ethically repugnant that banks charge ME for the honour of making money off of MY money) and I apologize if I sound like the unibomber but...

I think if you got a PO box, the money orders would come rolling in, and LQ members who are not "creditworthy" could do their part.

Again, I am sorry to beat this dead horse, but I would sincerely like to help keep this site alive, and until I am able to mail a MO, I (and I suspect many others) will simply not be able to contribute.

bulliver,

Let me look into the costs/etc of a PO box to see if it is feasible.
