Let me know how to move money to support your great efforts.
We have some stuff to sort out before we start taking donations. As a bare minimum we need to make sure we meet any legal requirements (regulations, declaring income, etc). Equally necessary is the need to set ourselves a set of standards. Sure, the mod/admin team is lovely and made up of responsible individuals (all my opinion) BUT a) things can get funny when it comes to money b) the forum will hopefully live for a while, that means new mods at some point and it'd be easier to already have a precedent for financial conduct c) it's good sense. We also, need to come up with an idea of how much the forum needs and for what.
Thus actually asking you to put your hands in your pockets is a little way off. I wanted a poll so I could get an idea of the general feeling and so I had something to take to Rdearman and Emk when I raised the idea of fundraising.
