I recently discovered a renewal reminder as a GTT Site Supporter in my junk e-mail. I don't remember how long I was a Site Supporter, but I was happy to make a donation when Kenny ran the site.
When I looked at the Donation page this morning, it says to "Please PM Kevin for more information." Huh? Kevin sold GTT to VerticleScope in 2015 and it appears he hasn't been active on the site since June, 2016. Do I bother him with a PM?
So before I renew as a Site Supporter, I have to ask a few questions:
Where do donations go now that a corporation owns GTT?
What benefit is there to a member who makes a donation?
Do the site administrators get a raise if I make a donation?
If the only benefit to being a Site Supporter is removal of ads, I'll have to decline making a donation. The ads don't bother me and I have found them useful in a couple instances.
However, if a donation is important to the continuing success of GTT, I'll gladly show my support.
Any thoughts on this?
