I spoke with b-rad the other day, there is a pay pal issue currently. We'll have to wait to see what b-rad works out

but RavRob is correctly, currently available firmwares are available for free, no donation required

My paypal got cancelled for ambiguous reasons without any ability to appeal. The only thing I was told is that I broke an unspecified rule.

What I can figure out is that apparently you are not allowed to use a 'donate' button, unless you are a provable npo or other entity which is allowed to accept donations. Note that this is different from years back, when those groups had their own lower rate donate button. Apparently that option does not exist anymore and paypal taxes all organizations equally. Disturbing to me was not even the option to change the buttons from donate to some sort of purchase, even after being a paypal user for 14yr or so.

Oh well, no donations for now. This is also the reason why ads have popped up around the site. Somethings gotta pay the bills :)

I had forgotten about the paypal issue,

I guess we need to think of some way for people to participate/help in the community
who & how do people get access to Area 51 & Donors Lounge without the use of paypal donations ?

Maybe low priority issue for now, but something to think about
Originally Area 51 was by invitation only, I guess we're back to that for the time being

German paypal customers dont need to be a verified non profit org until they reach
10000$ funds ..after that they have to formaly declare themselves to deduct balances.

Gazillions of developers still use paypal for donations.

Deutsche Paypal Spendenempfänger bis 10000$ müssen KEINE non profit org sein.
Sie müssen jedoch nachweise erbringen ab 10000$ einnahmen.

Es gibts 100tausende kleine Appentwickler die immer noch problemlos per paypal
spenden bekommen, ein blick in den mozilla oder google addon shop reicht.
Ich habe erst vor kurzem noch 1 dollar an einen addon entwickler gespendet.
Der ist ganz sicher auch keine gemeinnützige Org.

If you cant use paypal consider FLATTR

Services like uploaded.to are goddam annoying to distribute files with 100mb+
took me fuckin 40 minutes to download that file .

All that doesn't help if paypal cancels your account and is not willing to discuss this with you...
