@julius2 suggested this,
Something like: "Life without Please Donate."

Ideas? @abhijithb21 can you update the front page?

Hey, the image is not really an svg. just a high res. bitmap with the text. I can share the bitmap and then others can put text on it.

As for the new height:width ratio I will make it right away. But could you suggest the text. I would like to space and edit the text itself so it looks better.

Here is the bitmap in double size. 880 x 1408 px. ups... is it a landscape format?

OK. Praveen @praveenarimbrathod

  1. I make a new one for the campaign banner. Is it ok with "Christmas fund-raiser," or could there be a better text?

  2. I think that we should also have one directly at the menu. People should see it, so they at least consider donating. It's only fair. I don't know what you say, but I can make one fast using the same image and text.

Adding to sidebar or menu needs code changes. I'll try those. If anyone else who knows programming can try, that'd be better. @balasankarchelamat @nandajavarma @vamsee @anisha @shafeeqk

Sure... Here it is 704 x 440 px. for the generosity page.

Write when you want one for the menu.

Thanks! I have updated the generosity page. If anyone has any suggestions to update the campaign text, please suggest. Otherwise we can start promoting the fundraiser now.

Great work you guys. All looks really good and I completely agree with Jakob that it is on left side and permanent or semi-permanent. It is a gentle reminder that Poddery is not free (as in beer).

Hi everyone,

We got our first paypal Germany contribution today, a recurring monthly donation of 1EUR from France, so 12EUR/year. Every bit helps! It hasn't actually put in money yet but is set up for automatic monthly payment,

I wrote a thank you note, I assumed that would be nice, text below. Suggestions for future notes welcome, or if something like below is good:

Hi Jean-Luc,

Thank you for your contribution. From all of the people behind

Happy Holidays!

1st Quarter "take" from Poddery PayPal account. Overwhelming, Activity from start of account to 3/31 attached. As you can see Our French/Spanish connection donor quit after 2 "contributions".

What I don't understand is after all the discussion about this there is STILL no link on each user's LeftSide bar on stream page for making contributions, at least not on mine. Why hasn't that been done?
