phpbb Donation?

Post by Nevset »

Is there a need for cash donations to keep phpbb going and up to date and secure? If so what is the best way to donate and ensure that it will be used to develop phpbb? Thanks and keep up the good work! -Nevset nevset@gmail.com

The team makes 0 profit off those bears, they are sold at manufacture price.

One excellent way of assisting with the project is spending a little time in the phpbb.com support forum now and then, helping people and giving advice to those who need it. Theres always someone new who needs a helping hand :)

If you're gagging to lighten your wallet, then have a gander at OSUOSL's Rackathon 2006:

... also hosts many projects aside from phpBB. :P

well the whole phpbb project is a non profit one :roll: plus they do gain something from the bears. Bertie Bear helps to spread phpbb into the world ;)

Who gets the money from all the ads on phpbb.com then? That's got to be pulling in at least several thousand dollars each month, if not more.
