We get lots of traffic. Servers are expensive.

We run a monthly donation drive. And then we share the wealth.

August 2014 Month-to-Date Goal: $65

Advertising revenue has always paid for our absolutely enormous hosting costs. Until now. If you have ever found DaniWeb helpful, useful, fun, a great learning experience, a place to meet, talk to and share ideas with smart, talented people, or has in some way enhanced your life over the past decade, please help us out with a financial contribution.

Better, quicker answers to your questions …

To show our appreciation, every article that you start gets a featured priority listing. That means any question you ask is more likely to be seen right away by the right people. In fact, featured discussions receive 1000% more views on average. You can't beat that.

Not only that, but when an expert helps you to solve your sponsored question, they make money. The more people who vote on their answer, the more money they make. Because sponsored questions are strongly incentivized to produce lots of quality responses, "bounty hunters" even flock to reply to them.

Recognition …

You get an awesome badge next to all your posts, articles you start and in your member profile so everyone knows how generous you are. Plus you get a warm and fuzzy feeling seeing the counter climb closer towards reaching our monthly goal of paying our web hosting bill thanks to generous sponsors like you.

All benefits last for a month following your donation. (Donating monthly keeps this perpetual.)

One-time donation

Monthly sponsorship

We collect donations, but then we pay it forward.

Earn money for helping others …

Isn't it about time forums rewarded their contributors? We understand that it's you guys who make us who we are in the first place. So we want to return the favor. And that's how our Rewards Points system was born. Here's how it works: There's a big pot. People who donate contribute to the pot, and people who help the people who donate earn money from the pot.

… and automatically receive better answers to your own questions

As an expert, not only can you make an unlimited amount of money posting in sponsored discussions, but you can also make money by posting in discussions started by community members with a lot of system kudos of their own, too. This is because we want our members who might not give their money, but certainly do give a significant amount of their time helping others, to also get the best answers when they're the ones with the questions for a change.

That means that the more you invest in the community, the more money you make, the more respect you gain in the community, and the more incentive you give others to help you out when you're the one with the questions.
