    Donation button


    Hello there,

    i am wondering, there is a donation button on the freesound homepage.
    It's good to see that the goal is reached now.
    But i wonder, what was the purpose of this money?
    What is freesound goïng to do with this money?
    They set a goal for example: $1500,- so they must be saving money for something specific, right?

    Best regards,

    Sander

    i can only make assumptions since i'm not involved but running/maintenance of a website/server costs money, development of the software costs money, advertising etc. etc. etc.

    and everytime they reach their "goal" they instantly reset it and make a new goal, i've seen it happen, im not trying to say bad things about freesound but don't think too much about it

    @kodack so what do you think, how much does it actually cost to run/maintain/improve a reliable service like freesound?
