donation edicate
« on: March 21, 2009, 10:35:13 PM »
I've been writing freeware as a hobby for over ten years, and only in the last few years have I added a donation link in my applications.. And no one has used it, that is up until yesterday.   :D

Someone sent me, what I consider to be a very generous donation for my text-to-speech plugin for trillian ( TalkBack ).

So, I'm kind of a newbie with this.. Should I send a thank you.. add a donation credits page to my site.. or something else...

What do you guys normally do to recognize someone for their contribution...?

Every time I've donated to this site I always get a personal thank you e-mail from mouser. If you've ever gotten one from him then you can take a look at that to see what mouser usually does.

send them a nice email.. tell them what you've told us -- how much it meant to you and why.
you may find that in doing do, you've made the act of donating even more enjoyable and meaningful for them  :up:

Thanks for the advice, that was my first inclination.. Since the donation was through paypal it just felt odd getting his email 2nd hand through the process instead of directly..

I'll send him a thanks email  :Thmbsup:

appreciate the advice as always..
