The forums at DonationCoder.com are open to the public.
You may make posts once you create a profile and login.There are a couple of forum boards which are for Members Only. These boards contain the current discount codes for software, as well as occasional beta releases of software, the debates about upcoming award nominees, etc. These boards are only available to those who have officially joined the site by making a donation (of any amount).
Once you have made a donation your member profile status will be upgraded to Charter Member and you will be able to see the previously invisible boards which are in the same section/category as this one.
Note that when you make a donation, an account here at the forum is not automatically created, you still have to create it, and then I have to upgrade your profile, which usually occurs within a few minutes but could take up to 8 hours.
These members-only boards are our way of encouraging you to make a donation to the site, even if it is only for $1.
We know that it's a pain to donate, and that's why donation-based sites usually fail. We are trying hard to strike a balance between providing a great site and making enough money to survive, and that's why we're trying these efforts to encourage donations without becoming jerks about it. I hope that makes sense.
And if you make your donation via Amazon.com don't forget to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the info about it since amazon doesn't tell us who donated.
