As a community maintained platform, we depend on your contributions, for code, systems, moderation and more.
A short poll. Feel free to add your thoughts in written form below.
@gerhardbeck I didn't find such an option. But feel free to comment in free text, these comments are of more value to us anyway.
@codeberg some of us, like my friends, live in countries with heavy sanctions. This prevents many from contributing money.
@arh Thank you for your comment. Actually, we urgently prefer to receive more non-financial contributions at the moment, too.
Anyway, is there something we can do to accept money from these locations?
@codeberg I don't think so. Cryptocurrency is a way but many face trouble to trade cryptocurrency as well. Maybe you can ask someone who lives in EU to collect donations in Iran (and Cuba, etc.) and give them to you but that requires lot of trust.
About @fsf though, I still am struggling to convince myself. As a PhD student I can donate just so much and EFF so far has been having a closer melody to my heart. But perhaps after graduation I can allocate more budget.
@codeberg my three year old daughter, she uses up a lot of my time and energy.
we didn't get the village it takes along with her 🤷🏻♀️
@meena same. Neither did we get the villages it needs. They consume lots and lots of energy. And they are very rewarding.
@codeberg I only learned about Codeberg recently and just created my account. And I too have a young daughter who uses up most of my time and energy. But I will give it a test and see how it goes and hopefully contribute some day.
@codeberg As usual there is an initial effort required to get started. Like finding out what to contribute, how to contribute, finding confidence that your own contribution will be 'good'.
I noticed that you are actually doing quite a good job at making this easy. Regarding the Docs I can just look at the issue tracker and start discussing with people.
I think advertising 'help wanted' issues on mastodon might help. That's basically how I now decided to dive into one issue.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
