Well check it out, about 40 people have posted a note on this, saying they would most likely contribute to the monetary sum.
That's already $1,500 bucks!!, keep it up all of your guys out there!!, we'll have an even more butt kicking Question forum for Linux!!
this is the coolest site I have seen for linux support, I have learnt a lot and did exchange a lot of info, for me 35$ in Indian currency would be 2000/- bucks which is abt 25% of my income, Though I would like to help I am filled with constraints, is there any other way I could help, any nominal donation or something and also how do I send it to you,
anyway pls keep this site going for universal LINUXhood
Thanks for this great site
I am not using Linux right now, but will probably be back with Linux when it gets a little less troublesome and arduous to use. I would be glad to donate the $35, as I know the next time I try to install some feature, I will be in trouble and need help.
I feel this site is one of the top Internet forums, well organized,
fair moderating and very helpful when you have those situations that manuals and FAQ's dont usually hit the target! I feel asking for $ 35.00 is very reasonable and I will certainly contribute. You
appreciate and respect a site of this high caliber. Thank you !
What about a rising thermometer showing how much money has been donated so far? You want to buy a real bomb, but probably not a big server so you need what? Five Thousand dollar? Show how much percent we got so far
From the positive response seen, it would appear that the whole board backs the move.
However, it would be good if anyone who has an opinion on this issue would say speak out (I'm looking for some ppl who have reservations against the move).
The fact that the basics of the site wont change, i.e you can still ask and answer for free, there shouldn't be too much of a problem, and in fact I have already stated that I would join up myself - its just the ppl who are not here all the time that I am curious about. Would they mind?

I would be more than willing to pay the $35 bucks to keep this site running. Having said that, I have one main reason why it may be a bad idea: while it has been said before, I think that there may start to be the resentment of the people who paid, but didn't "get" anything else. I don't know how true that is, or if it'd happen, but I have seen it happen other places, in situations similar to this one.

Any specific examples of sites that you have seen this happene to? I have studied very closely a few sites that have done this and I am really trying to learn from others mistakes. A few more sites to look at may help avoid a pitfall I overlooked. I would like this to go smoothly and make sure that we stay the friendly community that we are now. Thanks.
