Help Upgrade CD

Just a thought after discussing with some people. CD has been a great service to FIRST and all of those involved. I was wondering, without talking to anyone at CD, if there was say a yearly fee of $2- $5 (voluntary) would people be willing to help out to continue this exceptional service. I will start a poll and just see what happens. Be honest.

Re: Help Upgrade CD

I would be in on that. What you can do is if you have a paypal account, they have a button you can put on your webpage that says donate paypal and you can put money right into the account. So brandon or a team 47 paypal account can work

looks like that

Re: Help Upgrade CD

By my math 2 dollars times 4600 active users is about 9,200 bucks...I bet that could do Chiefdelphi a lot of good...I'm up for it! Look at it this way also...if 4600 users average 5 dollar donations Chiefdelphi would have 23,000 bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is one heck of an idea!

Re: Help Upgrade CD

why not get a bunch of empty water bottles stick a number 47 on them and put them around the place at nationals. that should be able to get quite a bit because at competitions i have change in my pockets from lunch and stuff that I'm just begging to get rid of.

Thumbs up Re: Help Upgrade CD

I think a small donation to CD would be a great idea to help improve service (not that its not already great) even with 1000 users $$$$$ thats still not a small sum of money ill dish out the money for CD

Re: Help Upgrade CD

CD is already awsome but to help make things run more smoothly i would be willing to contribute. Thinka bout it. over 9,000 memebers. Say that only half are actualy active somewhat on CD if we all give 1 dollar it would be awsome.

Count me in if we decide to do it.

Paypal is the best way.

Re: Help Upgrade CD

I would be willing to pay a small fee to use the website. CD is really in need of some beefier hardware. I believe this site currently runs on an Intel Celeron with 512MB RAM. I'd like to see dual Xeons or preferably dual Opterons with about 2GB of RAM. I'm all for chipping in

Re: Help Upgrade CD

I'd throw in a couple bucks to keep the site running at optimum. Chief Delphi is a resource that has been there for me, I'd like for it to be around for future generations of FIRSTers as well.

Re: Help Upgrade CD

This is not a fundraiser yet. I started this post to see what the reactions would be. If CD decides to take us up on our offer then something could be put in place. Remember please that this thread is not started by, or sanctioned by anyone at CD. It is for informational purposes only. (end of disclaimer)

Re: Help Upgrade CD

i also like that idea. i remember seeing on a different forum, if you donated money toward the forum you got a cool thing next to your name and got some special privileges. would that be possible here?

anyway i would donate some money toward this good cause!

Re: Help Upgrade CD

I'd suggest have a box at your pits at nationals, I wouln't be willing to use pay pal, but I'd be more then willing to stop by with change when I have it and a couple bucks.
