Right now I am paying for TypeDrawers out of pocket. Hosting costs me $50 US per month, the domain name is another $20 a year. Some people have offered to donate to cover costs. If you want to donate please use Paypal, my address is james (dot) puckett (at) gmail (dot) com.
Also, I have a quote from Vanilla for a custom plugin to require users supply real names. It will cost $390. If $390 worth of you want to chip in for this feature we can make it happen. But remember that if it does get implemented, we will still have to deal with people who supply fake names. In the case of Ben Dover and Rod Johnson it will be easy to deal with, but there will be people who provide fake names that seem legit.
(of course, feel free to use it for the plug in if you prefer)
Keep up the good work!
Hope that helps.
@Jan, no offense taken and I understand your point of view.
But a Real Name Plugin would accomplish what exactly? A first and last name? Would that be in King's english only? I mean how tight do you think you can construct what you regard as a real name?
Prince ... is that not a real name? To name but one
I don't mind using my real name at all, but fundraising for something that can't even be truly justified isn't that a waste of time, effort and money?
What's in a name ...
And don't forget, there are many who also enjoy doing the same.
Just wondering tho, what difference does it make anyway?
When someone really wants to use its "nom-de-screen", it would be nice if this person would provide its real name in its profile.
