Donations? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Kirt, Have you ever considered putting a Paypal donation link on your site?

Great idea  To tell the truth, I never thougt of it. I already use PayPal for software sales, so a donation link should be simple enough.

Do you get many donation? From what I've read, it does not usually generate much revenue. I've had a couple gracious souls donate occasionally, but that's about it.

I'm not currently using any donation links. I think in the future if any of my sites get busy enough to take more of my time and effort I will do it. The more users I have at the time of the annoucement of the new donation link would be bennificial. I know it probably wont generate much, but anything I can do to recover some of my out of pocket expenses will help. I would hope that anyone who really appreciates a site like this would be inclined to give something. I have been on the soap box for some time yelling about the lack of RF "portals" if you will. I have found more usefull links on this site then google and yahoo has provided me in the last 2 years. I'd be happy to be the first to donate to your site.

Keep up the good work Kirt. I'm spreading the word for you. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
