+1. I wouldn't want to feel like a lowly miser donating just $10 when Joe
RichBoy over there has given $100.

I'm in favour of a monthly wall of fame with just names of people who have
contributed, not how much they have given. $300 may not be much in USA, for
instance, but it's a graphic designer's monthly salary here in India.

Remember that there are also a fair few people (all on this list) who
devote time and effort for free to keep the community going. They may not
be able to donate money, but they donate time. Time = money. Expertise =
