I think that there are members who have pre-paid card for Internet orders (me including), so the donation system should give also this option, charging such card.
At the moment I think we'll only be accepting paypal contributions.
The trol probably referred to the spambots we had and for those guys who registered and advertise anything (e.g that guy with the kitchens).
The forum software itself needs to be updated (on my to do list) - once that happens the occasional spambots would be blocked from ever posting by a secure captcha system (the prompts that make you prove you're a human).
Will the new site still allow posting by some image host? There are members who have many Mb in image hosts and the 50Mb limit will probably not enough.
Again, as I've stated several times, the "50MB" limit is not set in stone but is rather a ballpark figure to give everyone an idea of how it would work. As I said earlier, we're not even sure we'll need to impose a limit for storing drawings on the server. Once we get further along we will figure this out and let everyone know.
Also glad that it is not possible to buy influence, though would it be possible, for a certain amount, to pay for enough server space that raises ones personal limit, either individually or as a collective?
We will address this after we get a bit further along.
