Seems to me you don't make it very obvious how to donate. I just spent some time looking and can't see anything in the links at the top of the page.

If you search the site on "donate" it doesn't bring up a link that tells you how.

If you click on the little trophy that says someone has donated, as new people may do out of curiosity, it doesn't take you anywhere.

I'd donated before, the only obvious way I could see is to find a post by someone who hasn't donated and click on the link below their name.

Perhaps donations will increase if if is more explicit/easy.

The first time I donated I just clicked on the 5.00 link on the opening page, perhaps it should be clear there that if you want to alter the sum it can be done there, I found that paypal wouldn't allow me to edit the amount. I didn't try that this time so you may have altered it. But if people want to give more they may not bother and just give the fiver, those that want to give less may just back out.

So it is, but I only noticed it because you told me. I haven't noticed in a year of posting on here! And I did just just go look, my expectation was to find the link in the top banner with guides, events, chat etc. I think making the "has donated" thing a link may be effective. After all Ben wants to net as many people as possible.

I often wondered why FF isn't paid membership, I'm sure many wouldn't mind

Re: new ads under 1st post

Suppose its annoying that people here can help someone save often hundreds of pounds & that you would think it would be a nice gesture to donate few quid...saying that some do which is really nice

From an advertisers point of view, they'd be pissed off if their ads appeared at the bottom, money wasted
