why are you always pluggin useless crap and donating money to pointless shit (dog surgeries ETC.) when it can go to better places? I mean cmon the chats been waiting for the last how many years.
please tom enlighten me.
Do you guys want to donate money to get chat done? I actually have been considering the option of having donation categories as part of the store.
For example if a specific community (such as the Audio Portal, which could really use a dedicated programmer) is able to raise enough money on an annual basis, they could fund a full-time employee to work on their part of the site.
There are other areas where people could help too. For example we're looking into solar panels on the roof of the building. I have no idea what the quote will be for the cost... But let's say it will cost $100,000. The government grant pays 30%, which leaves us paying for $70,000. Theoretically the expense would be paid back after 6 years of energy-savings and NG would be more financially stable long-term as a result so it could be worth the investment either way... but it would be kinda neat if 2000 people each chipped in $35, and got some "NG Green Initiative Stage 1" badge that shows they were part of it, and NG didn't have to incur a short-term expense which cuts into the present budget for other things.
