Reminds of this investigative report of Las Vegas housing where people break into the countless empty homes and make it their own. The sheriff went into one and told them to leave. They had children and all. Just when you were shedding a tear after them saying they are homeless, they all got into a Mercedes car and drove away!!!2. Don't let the potential donors know you drive a Mercedes.
Yes. I just created it. But have not tested it since I hate paying myself.Any update on the PayPal option?
Thanks a lot Don. It did indeed work! It is much appreciated regardless of amount.OK, I gave it a shot. Let me know if it went through. Only second level; cheap, been an expensive year, and still saving to pay the tax bill after my Dad's passing. I suggesting making it accessible after the first time in case folk want to contribute later (the option to give seems to have vanished after I gave once?)

The donation is good for a year after which you get a notice that you have already done so. Did you think you would want to donate again during that time?
Also, what do we want to the title to be? For now I gave you the Patreon Donor title but that doesn't fit anymore. And for paypal I created three levels so what do do about that?
No worries. And yes, my thought was I (and others) might give more later, like after getting through the holiday and tax season. I have been subject to enough ID attacks and unexpected expenses that I am hesitant to give monthly, but am quite willing to contribute as I can (like after my next round of RSUs vest in April). And if something comes up during the year, like a rash of new projects you want to do, then I'd like to help out if I can.
Another forum I help moderate went the advert route earlier this year and I do NOT like it. Some of the adverts are very annoying, like pop-up videos (I use an ad blocker), and there has been a lot of pushback. Of course, the folk complaining loudest about the ads, are usually the ones not interested in donating to support the site (isn't the Internet free? ).
I don't actually care about the title, nor really wish to distinguish by level (a college kid giving $50 is in reality donating far more than I at the same level). If you add titles, I would simply call it "Donor" or maybe "ASR Donor" and leave it at that. It might be nice to recognize donors, but whether they gave $1 or $1000 I figure is their business, and don't care to know. If folk feel they need special recognition for higher levels, fine, but that is not why most of us are here IMO. Frankly, I am amazed at the amount of time and money you've poured into this place, and am glad to help as I can.
