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.

Maybe I could clarify here, since I was one of the proponents to use advertisement.

By using advertisement,

I meant for mozillaZine to carry ads that they are able to vet, and hopefully _not_ via an agent(like doubleclick). Think selective.

I meant for ads that an advertiser would like mozillaZine to carry specifically. Think targetted.

It may or may not be a viable _single_ funding model, but it could be one of the income source, besides donation. Think composition.

For example, there could be ads to recognise those people that have made a donation. Think rewards.

Tasteful ads well placed can be non intrusive and non obstructive. Think LOTR trailer in tv commercials.

And of course, if mozillaZine can stay ads free, it would be the best.
