Quote from: Clinton R NixonWe would like to discuss whether you would or would not be offended by the opportunity to donate...
Quote from: Ron EdwardsIssue #1 is whether to have people donate money at all, and I'd like input about that.
Quote from: Ron EdwardsThe big issue for me (call it #2) is whether to have the donors be publicly acknowledged. Will doing that imply, overwhelmingly, that we do "favor" or "like" or "respect" donors more than non-donors? Will any disclaimer succeed in allaying that perception? Will donors expect certain treatment or respect from other Forge members because their names are in lights?
Quote from: Key20JasonI say set up a little Cafepress action and get some shirts, shorts, hats, etc up in here with some Forge-sport! Heyyeah!
Quote from: ClintonJason Blair sent me some neat ideas regarding CafePress, and the one I came up with based off his is this: as another way to contribute to the site, I'd ask all you artists/graphic designers to design a Forge shirt for CafePress. It wouldn't have to use the Forge logo or anything, but just be a cool Forge advertisement. Each month, we could sell a different Forge t-shirt. I think it'd be cool as all get-out - imagine a crazy raygun-badass Forge shirt one month, and a darkly surrealistic shirt the next.
Quote from: Fang LangfordThe second problem is overage. What if the donations far and away exceed the needs of the site? Where will this money go? What if you are getting more in donations then you can think of things to improve the site?
