Donations for LJ

Donations for LJ

Short, concise description of the idea
Provide an option for paid members to add a donation above the cost of their account fee.

Full description of the idea
On the account renewal page, you can select to buy/renew for two, six, or twelve months. There should be an additional option for users to add an additional amount as a donation to the site. For example, if I were renewing for a year and wanted to donate an additional $25, I would choose the "renew and donate" option and enter $50 for the total amount.

An ordered list of benefits

  • 1. Easy way for users to help out LJ's cashflow issues above and beyond the cost of an account.
  • 2. More money for bandwidth = more site stability = happier free users who are more likely to upgrade.
  • 3. More money to pay for a sysadmin.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • 1. Someone's time to add this to the code and test it.
  • 2. Possible issues with the exact amount being entered by the user. (If the amount is added in the LJ site and not through the PayPal part, then this could be covered in the code, I believe.)
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I think that's fairly straightforward. :)
