MozillaZine Soliciting for Donations

In order to make the site more reliable and responsive as it continues to grow, we are soliciting donations of money, time or spare computers (donations are not tax deductible yet but we are working on getting 501(c)(3) status). If you find to be a useful resource for the Mozilla community, please visit our donations page or email for more information about how you can help."

We just discussed a donation system in the forums. Any chance that this may be used for feature request bugs?

Well, I guess I should have taken a look at Mozdev's donation page first. My initial impression (donations to help projects) was wrong. Oops. Still, a good idea.

There was a discussion on MozDev on whether donations should be able to be given directly to projects, but in the end it was decided that MozDev, as the main supporting organism, should get the support.

After all, if MozDev disappeared, probably *the* most valuable place to get exposure for your extensions to the Mozilla browser would be gone.

You'd do better if you had a sad-looking animal like they have up at

I'd prefer to stick with PayPal (already donated to mozillazine :), any chance to also have a PayPal account ?
