So, when are the next discounts?
« on: February 18, 2013, 09:13:28 AM »
When I took this on, I didn't realize how much work it was!  Especially to do it right, as the supporting members here at DC deserve.  It's going to take a while to get enough things together to make it a monthly thing, but I haven't forgotten.  Right now, to make sure that we have a good amount of discounts and giveaways, I'm going to plan for once a quarter, which will make the next set up in April.  Hopefully, I'll be able to shorten this turnaround in the future, but I just wanted to make sure you know that this section won't go stagnant again!  Keep coming with the suggestions, and thanks for all of the messages of support!

I will try (emphasis on try because one never knows) to get one or two discounts and will let you know if I do. Thanks wraith.

I think you kind of went in at the deep end -in the sense you got such a big range of discounts- which was great for us :up:
but must have been a huge amount of work for you...

I think *any* discounts are very much appreciated. And I think once a month is too much work for anyone - oops just reread your post - quarterly is very good :D

Agreed, quarterly is just fine. Out of curiosity, how are developers usually contacted when you ask for discounts? A mail describing Donationcoder.com and a request?

It's surprisingly arduous to line up discounts, especially in any number.

Wraith,
Once a quarter seems a very good idea.
I wonder if vendors would agree to keep a discount open for the 'current' quarter.

@Wraith - whatever seems most doable and workable for you is fine by me. It takes a great deal of effort to do what you're doing, so who should know better how to manage the task? Just so long as you know anything you arrange - and on whatever schedule - will always be greatly appreciated by us all. :Thmbsup:

Why no try to unburden yourself by hitting up the various sites that offer discounts and see if they'll post themselves?
