How do you guys feel about me putting a donation bar on the forums? Would it be sleazy, or would it be helpful?

It would look something like this.

I love the idea of a donation button on the forums mainly because I check the forums 100x more often than the website and often forget about donating.

I think a donation bar would be fine if it is conservative. If the upper end of the bar can be set to the 1.2x the price of maintaining services and the period is set to on monthly, then I'm fine with the bar. Other community feedback would be good on figuring out how to configure the bar so that we come across respectably and not "give us money or we gone" sorta thing.

Are you also able to attach a link to the monthly cost break down? Might make people feel better about donating if they see where it goes

There's only one monthly cost - the server. Everything else is donated.

If i actually had extra cash i would donate, unfortunately i'm broke. having a donation bar sounds fine and doesn't scream "give us money now"

So apparently the donation bar isn't compatible with out version of phpbb, so it's a moot point anyway haha.

It's still a good idea, maybe in the near future it will be possible.
