Because Letterrip said the institute is aware that the donate button is kind-of hidden so people aren’t really sure how to go ahead with donating.
But if the institute moved the donation button to be on a prominent place on the frontpage of Blender.org would you donate, whether it’s 10 dollars or euros or even 100 in order for Blender development to move along faster?
If they made it an easy to use I would be happy to donate for the reason of accelerating Blender’s development, maybe less than a hundred dollars to start with just to see how it goes and if all goes well maybe donate more.
Perhaps even have a counter showing how much was donated and the amount of people who donated, could also increase the financial resources for the Institute more than their E-shop does alone.
So would you donate if the donation button was on the frontpage so you readily know your donation is going to the Institute and funding Blender development?
