    It's just a donation, so whatever you want. I have given 5 bucks to some, 10 and even 20 bucks. As a theme creator myself I hardly ever get any donations, very rare, but it does keep me going when I do. It is a nice thing to do, but if your like me and don't have much to give, just give what you can.

    With all the fun I have had with this phone, I cannot pay the developers that I feel is right. So I just give something. Up to you...

    While we are on the subject of donations, please donate either to the signature link or the devs/themers web sites only. Please do not create threads requesting donations. I know this isn't the case here, I'm just reminding people. (also known as don't shoot the messenger);)

    I don't know, we had a really bad waiter once, really bad and the bill was $29.68 or something like that and instead of leaving no tip, I just evened it out to thirty, he came outside and gave us a dirty look on our way out of the parking lot. He looked like he wanted to fight, it was classic.

    My Grandfather would leave a penny and put a cigarette out in the plate if he didn't like the service he got.....

    Backnblack - Haha too funny... I'll keep that idea in mind (and have to buy a pack of cigs beforehand since I quit hmmm)

    hookbill - Have people actually made threads that just say please donate to me? I have not seen them, thats odd.

    We have people who are what I'd like to call "enthusiastic followers" who will campaign for donations to the developers web site. Had one this morning I had to delete. That's what I'm talking about, the devs themselves don't do it.

    When someone downloads your theme don't you give them the opportunity to donate at that time? I would think that would be the best way to do it. I've heard good stuff about your work no doubt, you should have something set up.
