Perfect timing for this question.
Now that we've got the DonationCredits system in place i feel like we can finally provide a reasonably easy way for them to receive donations, and have a more symbiotic relationship to the rest of the site.
This was a major motivation for the DonationCredits thing - to make it easier for programmers and reviewers to receive donations.
Now we just have to figure out a sensible policy for adding more software and authors.. We need to discuss this more here at the forum.
some other side notes:
anyone on the site is welcome to put a link on their own offsite pages to the donation page for them at DonationCoder.com.
here's some sample html code that shows a gold coin that will link to your donation page, just change ######## to your userid number, which you can find by clicking the profile button above and then clicking "account settings on the left", and then look it the url address above and copy the number after the u=<img src="[url]http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/Themes/Dc2/images/dcgoldcoin.gif
" style="vertical-align:bottom;margin: 0 0ex;" alt="donate to author" /> Donate to author.[/url]
when users click that they will be taken to your donation page here where they will read your blurb donation profile and can either donate to you with credits if they are a member, or visit your offsite paypal donation page if you've configured one. for more info on configuring these see: http://www.donationcoder....um/index.php?topic=2942.0
we are about to start a huge C++ Builder programming contest which might be perfect for making a windows version of your program; prizes for the winners plus we'll be spotlighting winning programs to try to get them some donations. seems like might be a perfect match
