Owen sent an email to the list a short while back about a
FoG fundraising drive for a sysadmin:

There have been occasional conversations on IRC about having
a progress meter we could put on our web sites. I know some
other people have been in talks about this. But I decided
to JFDI.

Cool. As you saw on IRC, Andreas did a mockup which is based on monthly
subscribers (instead of total amount of money) -- this is what we were
planning to do. We can probably do some mix of the two (assuming we can
do it in a non-ugly way ;-)), though, since both views are interesting.
Can't we do one of them first, and the other one after?
Say we run one campaign for 3 months (or something) and pimp that really
hard, and then do the same with the other one for the following 3 months.

Heh, funny that you say that.  I wrote to board list today:

I suggest:

- We set our goal to fully funding a sysadmin on subscriptions (say, by next year. So aiming for 360).

- 90 a quarter. Count number of new subscribers. If we reach our goal before the three month period, we take the ruler down and add a Thank You note for the rest of the quarter. Like Wikipedia does.

  - May want to add a note like "Be the first Friend of GNOME today!" every day.


Shaun: Would you like to hack together some code based on the X number
of donors as well?
svg here:
(or do we need one with 90 people on it and make it run for 90 days?)

Hats of to Shaun for JFDI, we need more of that!
