lol man I understand you have to eat. I'm not at all saying dont eat or make money.
But the amount of time you have complained about not having donations, you could have fixed this already.
I promise as soon as I win the lotto, you will be one of the first social developers I donate to.
The cool thing is, that people love your plugin - it in return is something we use to help run our business combined with other plugins. I'm not picking, nor do I think anyone is picking on you or your lack of time invested in this plugin. We obviously are saying we love it and would love to continue to use it with this other great free app called WordPress.
I totally understand your side and how you feel my expectations might be too high in wanting to see if you can fix this issue.
On the flip side if your purpose of developing this plugin was only to get donations, well... that sorta goes against what makes wordpress so great. Donations are great.
Think of it like this - Say we are all riding a public school bus(not a short one) and then the bus gets a flat in one of the tires. (yes I know you didn't put the nail in the road or tell us to upgrade - but none the less we have a flat) We are all riding the same bus to school, and in this case your tire is flat. So asking for donations to fix the issue at this point is like saying "well sorry, I know you cant do work till I fix it, but... tip me because it makes me work faster"
Yes we all have places to go, things to do, mouths to feed. But we are ALL riding the same bus. I told you that I cant help with money, but I sure offered to hold the jack, flashlight, tighten the lug nuts. Whatever I can to help this process so we can get back on the road.
I'm not asking for you to add all these new snazzy features or things that will make my job easier. I'm just simply saying, "we have a flat" can you take a min look at it, and assist in getting us back on the road.
Money will come man, you will see that. I know it sometimes feels as if your putting all this hard work into nothing and nobody cares, but I think you can see now, we do.
So get a work around for 3.0 I will knock out some new graphics or help get your site looking amazing and we can all move forward. Fair?
