Knew we could do it - listen though, we smashed this particular crisis, but the fact is, the site will require ongoing investment and development... Why not just make it a monthly thing and do $1 a month ongoing?
I've been campaigning for a paypal donate button for ages, because for me it's not about the site being ad-free, it's about future proofing it against unforeseen dramas. I don't want the uncertainty associated with a freebie site which relies on the goodwill of just a couple of coders. It's got to be more robust than that.
So we jumped this hurdle, let's just everyone stick in some monthly cash whilst we've got the option to do so??
