Full Article Attached Help Keep MozillaZine in Business

Sunday February 16th, 2003

It's time to bail out MozillaZine again! If you think MozillaZine is a valuable community resource, please consider donating to us. While other organisations looking for donations may be happy to accept time, equipment or expertise, we're looking for cold hard cash.

If you donate to MozillaZine, you will help to ensure that we can continue to provide the Mozilla community with up-to-the-minute news, first class forums and informative developer weblogs. If you don't donate to MozillaZine, the Mozilla community could just be left with bug counts and bad grammar.

Our preferred way of receiving donations is via PayPal. Use one of the buttons that appear on each page. Think big numbers. If you prefer to receive something tangible for your cash, there's also our store but that doesn't make us nearly as much money.

Thank you.

I for one am very glad you're going to donations route. Unlike going with subscriptions or ads, it assumes people visiting the site care about it and are willing to invest in it without being forced to do so, which (luckily) often becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy precisely because of this, while also making sure not to alienate those people who for whatever reason are currently unable to donate. I myself fall in the latter catagory for now. Next year however...? I'm not certain, but chances are that by then I will be able to pay. Hopefully at that time there'll be some other service than PayPal though; I've seen a few too many horror stories about it to think lightly about signing up with them.
