Contribution Ware?
No ads? No fees? How?

 4:18 pm on Jun 20, 2000 (gmt 0)

I've already had a couple of questions about how this site is going to progress. Obviously some have thought the current setup was just a precursory step to adding advertisements. No.

There is no plan to add banner or any other type of advertising to this system now or in the future.

I certainly reserve that right should the need arise, but I am adamant about giving contributionware an opportunity here.
Please see the About link at top of page for more information.

Actually, you're tracking our click patterns and selling them to DoubleClick. (I'd better use a lame smiley/wink here ;) to avoid another "dark & evil" panic)

Killer concept dude. I always thought systems worth using and reading were worth paying for.

Do you have a figure in mind Brett?

No figure in mind at all. I think I will also put up a page of donations so folks can see exactly how much was donated and what the site expenses are running.

And no, I will not be adding credit card acceptance.

Thank you. We received our first contribution yesterday. If the two people who contributed would like to standup, that is up to you.

I would like to start a contributors page with links back to your site if possible. Maybe folks want to remain anon, that is fine.

Thank you.

Thanks to Steve and Cindy for effectively paying the hosting fees for this year by virtue of hosting signup referrals.

Thanks to NFFC for the major contribution. He registered several related domain names for us. Thanks NFFC.

Brett - we were glad to do it, and there's a few more to come...

Thank you for the westhost advice in the first place!

Steve and Cindy
