Questions to #Tails supporter and potential supporter that like to donate:
1. Which issues did you came across, that could solve if we change something?
2. Could you imagine to become a regular supporter, if we would change something about the donation process? What is hindering you, that we could improve?
3. Do you prefer regular or one time donations?
You can download, use, and share it with no restrictions. Forever!
@tails from your donation site: "Your donation goes entirely to Tails and will be handled by RiseupLabs which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the USA."
does riseup run the tails project or just handle the donations?
You should add another way for ppl to contribute (small) amounts on a regular basis. @Liberapay looks like a good candidate as it's #freesoftware as well and (afaik) doesn't violate your privacy as PayPal does.
Patreon is probably more familiar for most ppl, so adding that makes sense as well
BTW: you should add a bech32 BTC address as well as it saves a lot in network fees. You may also want to look into joining the Lightning Network (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_Network) and sth like btcpayserver
@syntax @tails Stop using #Paypal. PP shares the data they collect on your donors with 600 companies: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2018/03/the_600_compani.html #Tails project should not be subjecting donors to this privacy abuse.
