So I received an anonymous donation...
So I received an anonymous donation today of $100! When I first got the email I was almost positive it was spam, but when I logged into my PayPal account the money was there.
The donation came attached with the note: "use for advertising the fairfax underground web forum"
First off, to the anonymous donater, thank you very much! But I am a little concerned about your request as to how the money should be used.
I don't think traditional advertising (in a newspaper or what have you) is appropriate for this site. Advertising is what businesses do to increase profits, and this site isn't concerned about profit.
A site like this would benefit far more from "guerilla advertising." For example if I spent the $100 on something like FairfaxUnderground.Com stickers, and then gave them away to whoever wanted them (hopefully to be plastered in visible places). Or hell, $100 worth of white bed sheets and spray paint, and hang them on overpasses. Although that's probably illegal.
To the donater, I don't know if you even read these forums, but if you do and have a more specific idea of what you'd like me to do with the money, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and let me know.
To everyone else, Uhhhhhhhh, so I got $100 bucks for "advertising." What the hell should I do with it?
