I would really, really love to be able to make a one-off donation. I was a regular contributor on the old, blue OGS site, and would be again if this were possible.
Is it the advertising that keeps this from being a possibility? If so, would it be possible to turn off advertising for a year in return for a donation of a certain fixed amount ($60 say, to average out to the $5 a month suggested donation…or perhaps more if you want to encourage people to give monthly but not exclude people like me)?
I posted about this back in December 2015 and check the donation page every few months to see if there’s a change… I know I could make a larger one-off donation and then immediately cancel the subscription, but then one doesn’t get the membership benefits after the first month. This puts me off, given that ads are involved. Instead, I keep checking back for a one-off option.
If I’m the only person who won’t sign up for a monthly payment, I completely understand that it’s not worth the dev time to change things, but I thought it was worth bringing up again, just in case others might feel the same…
Thanks much and best wishes,
