Just a thought

With viglink now rolling out with 3.2 to try and generate some revenue for phpBB will we see how much has been generated and what the money will be used for?

Speaking from experience people like to see figures and also what funds are used for as well as targets if phpBB has one in mind

Having something like this could encourage more admins to enable viglink if they see what funds are used for

That would be 2.384.785 $ per year just for this board alone.

How about a progress bar so we can see how much people donate on top of the website and ask people to donate?
Like on http://www.fsf.org/
I like to see the progress bar, it feels like we are going somewhere. If it moves that is.

You can set a goal for 6 months and let it run and see how maybe will be donated.
If the bar does not reach the goal you write "Donate or VigLink extension will be enabled but default".
I agree with what this user says

I would make my donation to PHPBB3

I can't believe I was so far behind updating my forum that I'm just seeing this. :oops:

I'm not going to read through ALL the pages to see if this has ever been mentioned but I was wondering, could PHPBB make a youtube channel they could use for income? There are a LOT of things people come here to get help with. you could add videos to some, or something. Even if you just put out videos discussing future updates and things of that nature... There could be SOME revenue there I'd think. Just a thought. I'm guessing it's been thought of before but it never hurts to throw a thought out there right? :)

We don’t request money for anything, that’s the way we roll, you get 1-2-1 support for free so there’s no need for videos.

Also YouTube changed their monetization policies recently so now you have to have at least 1000 subscribers before any revenue is generated by your videos.
