Bengal313;40569 said::confused: :(Okay let me start by saying that this mod is great and wouldn't hesitate paying for it or making some sort of donation. I'm sure he put a lot of work in to it and wants to be compensated. But making it mandatory to donate for the 6.0 code is somewhat misleading. "Donate" is that something that should be done from the goodness of ones heart and to show appreciation. This stuff is open source and should stay free. If someone wants to sell their code they should just come out and say it's for sale.

With as many hits as some of his Pages have gotten, one would think adding Advertisements would yield a better return - but all in all it isn't free to Host a Website and It certainly doesn't pay to develop CODE for an open source project. Maybe he is just trying to break even to pay hosting costs :)

I know that together he and I have spent hours and hours and days troubleshooting and fixing problems that people have reported with the reports mod, adding new features, tweaking, documenting, etc. He's spent a lot more time than I have. I say this because while I agree that people should donate for this great mod, the reality is that people don't. [Okay correction, they really haven't.] I don't think that Scott's really looking for a hand out or a pay day, but it sure is nice to make a little money on the side with all the work that we [the community] have put into this project, mods, etc. I've contemplated doing something similar just to attempt to cover the costs associated with webhosting, domain registration, etc. :)
