A way to make additional donations to PBN

Ive searched this site, and I cant find a single way to send donations, other than a once yearly ASM. I'm someone who likes to give back, and I would like to make further donations to the site to see it grow.

My suggestion is for there to be a way for members like me to donate money. I dont think it would be hard to do, and I dont see why anyone would be against it

ASM is technically a product from the company that is PbNation and not a donation.

I'd imagine that there is a reason they do not accept donations.

Legal reasons? There could be a loophole. Give another banner that says something about being a supporter. If they arent allowed donations, couldnt this be a "product"?

I dont really want it to be about the banner. I was only mentioning it as a workaround if donations arent allowed for some reason.

However, if thats what everyone else wants, then they will get more donations what way. I'm not against a banner, I just dont want it to seem like we only want to donate for the banner

While we appreciate your willingness to donate to pbnation, we don't accept them because we are a for profit company.

ASM is a service that you are paying for and we greatly appreciate your support through it. You can also support us monetarily by using the other digital goods such as Gold Ups.

Thanks guys.

So there is probably no hope in getting to donate then. Oh well

The banner idea wouldnt work either?

Ill go ahead and delete the thread if there isn't a chance, I don't want to clutter up the suggestion box

They could make ASM have different levels. Like a $25 level, a $50 level, and a $75 level. (for example)

silver, gold, then platinum ASM memberships. They wouldn't have any more perks than the current ASM, but the tag would be different and it would be the recognition.

Could be a mix of additional perks such as more gold ups, or more b/s/t trusts. Then there's the custom tags.
