Sorry, but I donīt think so. I was around DF for more than one year, got a loan raise and also was able to donate
80 (well it was 100 but we tried a new payment method which turned out to be pretty expensive). Of course not everyone can donate that much or even more, but as said, every Dollar/Euro helps.
But for the free ride.... Hey I realy enjoy my donating
member functions and donīt want to miss them, so I will donate at least once a year. According to the FAQ
(if I remember correctly) this has to be at least 50 Euro to enjoy all functions for a year. If possible I try to donate more. But I think people are not aware of the nice extras you get with an upgraded/donating account. Also the paid time scale wasnīt checked, so even members who just donated once had their extras for several years.
So my opinion is to point people more to the nice extras through donation
and to cancel extras as soon as the paid time runs out.
Additional this is no happy-hippo-hippie-bullshit, this is a platform for information and knowledge sharing, so making it to a pay site for access, how would you get new members? There are several more free drug
discussion boards, so people just would switch to them.
Or I got another personal idea, everyone has something in his/her flat/appartment/house/garage which is not of use to him/her anymore, but still usefull to others. So maybe everyone can search for such an item, sell it over eBay or another platform, to achieve some $ to donate.
For example, even if it is just a computer game/console game you donīt use anymore, it would just lay around and dust would settle down on it.... so it is similar to throwing it away, better selling it for DF
