    Good call; encourages those who enjoy using the website to donate and reminds all that this is funded by donations and CadTutor

    a nice idea - maybe a pop up?

    I do think it would alter the tone of the whole place to the idea that a paid team are there to fetch-me, carry-me though, instead of a community where we all share ideas and contribute

    The regulars here do all share ideas and contribute but there are also a lot of request from people who think we already are here to do their drawings for them - and I don't just mean the "oh dear, I forgot to pay attention in class" brigade. We do have a significant number of people asking complex problems who then bump their thread if it hasn't been answered in 20 minutes.

    I agree DB - I don't think they (or anybody else) should be encouraged to think so though

    The idea of a "Donate" button is a good one. What dbroda said is very true, especially about people almost demanding a service and from what I see it's happening more and more recently.

    I thought we had one too but don't remember its passing. I thought Lee also had one in his sig but that is no longer there either.

    There's a donate button at the bottom of each of the tutorials / Michaels Corner pages

    We used to have a donate button at the bottom of each thread - the hope was that the OP, on getting useful and valuable advice might be inclined to donate a small sum. However, I don't think there was a single donation from that button and so I removed it when I did the last design review. We do receive some donations from the tutorials pages, but never from the forum.

    Fortunately, the adverts do reasonably well here and that's what pays for the site, it couldn't remain online if we relied only on donations.
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.
