I got an email from somone who wondered if writing and submitting a coding snacks program meant that the program became the property of DonationCoder.com.

No.  Any code you write is absolutely your software, in every sense of the word.

We don't want any rights to it, you can put it anywhere you want, sell it, discontinue it, etc.

We will host it for you on the CodingSnacks download page, and if you want to write a separate html page for the app, we'd be happy to host that too, but the program is entirely yours to do with as you wish.

And if you want to set up a donation account at paypal or amazon we'd also be happy to list the donation button next to the program on the coding snacks page, etc.

You are encouraged to submit an announcement of your program to freeware sites, and we are happy to host the download bandwidth and be the official download site for the program.

Our view is that the more useful content we have on the site, the more useful the site is to people, which is what we are trying to achieve.  And if we can do anything to help make the site a good experience for you we will try.
