Re: Quick/small Friends of GNOME change

Actually, I would be changing the definition of philanthropist to be anyone who gives anything.

And I think we need some option that has no minimum. People gave $1 amounts. I think depending on where you live, that might be a significant donation. We shouldn't turn it away.

I am not opposed to lowering the Philanthropist amount if we are
finding that few people donate $1200 or more, and if we think
lowering the amount would encourage more people to donate larger
amounts of money.

However, I think there should be a minimum amount.  Just saying "Name
your amount" seems like it would create confusion about what it means
to be a GNOME community philanthropist.

Rosanna pointed out that we removed the option to donate less than $25 and we had people that donated small amounts.

On the other hand, in the last six months we've had two large donations, one for $1000 and one for $750.

So, I was thinking we could change the Philanthropist option from:

     Philanthropist $1200 or more

*You get:* A framed print of GNOME foot signed by the GNOME Board of Directors and recognition of your contribution.


     Philanthropist: Name your amount

*You get:* Recognition of your contribution.
