Who Am I Talking To?
This chat channel is open to all, though there are usually one or two user in the channel who are moderators of the DonationCoder website/forum who can provide official support. Please do not share your login information or other personal information with anyone other than moderators.
Our chat channel is occupied 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, but please remember you are not speaking with paid support employees -- you are speaking with members of the DonationCoder.com forum who hang out in there spare time to chat about all aspects of life, and will help out with problems you might have if they are able to. We are always happen to have new people join the chat to talk about life, projects, anything that's on your mind.
Don't Forget the Forum
While the chat channel can occasionally be a good way to get a question answered quickly, we always recommend our forum as the main place to find answers and request assistance. That's because the forum has a much wider reach in terms of people who can help, and doesn't rely on someone being online when you post your question. It's also a much better way for people to share lasting knowledge on the forum.
Lots of clever free utilitiesThe Donation Coder site is offering hundreds of free utilities all full-featured with no nag screens. They use a novel licensing system: you have to register to get a free license key which allows you to download any number of programs on the site. This key lasts six months after which you must return to the site to download another free license key. After a year you are given a permanent license. Alternatively, you can make a once-up donation of any size and get a permanent key straight away. It's a clever and ethical way to encourage users to recognize the work done by freeware authors and I support it fully. The quality of the utility programs offered is very high and a number are unique in what they do. Highly recommended.
