    As many of you know, after months of not accepting donations, TF2Maps.net is now accepting donations again. Problem is, many dont have paypal or a debit/credit card.

    So, if you were to donate to the community, what would be the preferred method?

    I put CC. Never used paypal, even though thats probably a much smarter idea than just submitting my CC info. Could probably have a disnated, trusted person for checks/cash, though I've always found cash iffy (I did however get Milkshape back in HL1 days, where you had to send 20 bucks to sweden).

    I vote you don't have to donate if you don't want to.

    I don't expect anything in return for my donation, but at the same time, I don't want someone to vote for taking away donator's perks just because they can't donate themselves.

    i don't believe anyone said you had to donate... they are just asking IF you were to donate which would be the easiest method for you...

    I'd be comfortable with cheque, can you not use debit cards? I actually have a credit card but would rather use my debit. Since that's my money to start with.

    It would be much more helpful if you had a reocurring billing option, so someone could donate 10$ a month or so for a year.

    I personally dont believe people should need incentives to donate though.... Though I do really like having admin to the server :)

    I'm pretty sure you have a spare lung and kidney.

    God gave you two for a reason and i'm pretty sure he wanted you to donate them to this site.
