I'm guessing that most of the traffic here comes directly to the Forum Index, bypassing the Home page and missing the "Donate" button. And I'd guess that a lot of regular posters here do not read the News forum. If I'm right, this means there are a lot of people who are not aware of the current fund raising effort. How about putting something big and obvious at the top of the Forum Index page. Like:

SHOW ME THE MONEY! cheer


I think this is the first time I have looked at this forum.

I seem to be in a fund raising mode.

Another suggestion: Give those who donate an extra icon next to or below their username. The envy should boost donations.

thanks for the suggestion dustmote :D

the extra icon etc is a good idea too, but i have to adapt the forum for that, it is not possible right now.

Duh! I've totally forgotten about this myself until you added the top banner on the forum. Good idea ... and good incentive to dontate to remove the annoying thing.

i'm still waiting on paypal, but things should be open soon.

I kinda like the idea Dust Mote suggest about a special icon. I'm sure Q could easily add a special "financial contributors" usergroup and add members as she wishes, and have a special icon in the list we see now for usergroups.

However, this lead to my concern that privledges are provided to paying members and I dislike this idea.
A token of apprieciation seems nice but not a separate group with better treatment than those that contribute differently. My concern stems from the impresion new visitors might have when they see finances involved with member rankings.

Giving money should be about having enough financial resources to contribute to a wonderful site and forum, but not all of us can. It should not be about privilidges and boosting your ego. Just my opinion though (and it seems DA's also...)

yes i agree with you DA and xetrov smile And i don't intend to have something with extra priveleges or anything. Therefore i also don't want to create an usergroup for it.

I agree. Making a usergroup for financial contributors would be kind of strange, anyway. This might make it seem that only this group was responsible for/could donate to ld4all (such as Researchers are the only ones who can post topics in the Lab).

That's the first thing I thought of when the icon idea was suggested. Just a small icon [probably located below the actual part of the signature that users are able to edit] that Q or a mod puts there.
