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.

there are so many sites out there that are littered with flashing animated crap that its almost impossible to read the actual articles. non animated ads provide so little revenue that all sites will move incresingly towards these if they want ot support themselves on ads alone (look at slashdot). ads like this are utterly killing the interent experience. as soon as moz is able to block other content types like flash, i will block them all and be much happier. ever obtrusive and distracting ads are a dead end source of revenue, the future is a pbs like subscription model that k5 and mozzine are pushing, and i'm very fond of's "do 1 long click through add and get access all day to the premium content" model a lot.

(and yes, as soon as i get my next paycheck i'll be donating to mz)
