so, we've talked in past about putting up a little thank you page to list people or organizations who have donated to the site (and who do not ask to remain anonymous).
it has also been suggested that we might have like a DonationCoder.com tshirt or something to encourage donations.
i don't have any expectation that this would be a major draw for people, but it could be a fun thing.
so i was thinking of putting these two ideas and maybe like a fun postcard, under the heading of a "DonationCoder Club"
it would be in the model of public broadcasting fund raising.. all those who donate would automatically be part of the DonationCoder Club, and would be listed (if they want) on our thank you / member page with picture and website (again only if they want to be listed).
if you donate a certain amount you would get a little thank you gift, postcard, tshirt, bumper sticker, etc. just something fun.
or a membership kit of some sort (secret magic decoder ring, secret handshack instructions, etc. hehe), maybe like membership card with charter membership id#. again just stuff that might be fun and very cheap to produce. each membership card would be stamped for authenticity with a pawprint by my cat using animal-safe ink.
