Dougz - I would like to send you money

Hey Doug-
Could you put up some sort if donation box on Iso that accepts credit cards (PayPal, square, something)

If you do I will send you some cash.

Isotropic is fantastic. Now that it's going away i'd love to donate something to you for your work.

I will likely be giving goko my money for a far inferior product. Only right I should give something to you.

Thanks again for building isotropic. Best free thing on the Internet since google.

Ed
Ps. Google: if you ate reading this I will not be making a donation to you. I think you are doing fine with the ads and the self driving cars and all that.

Now that you wrote this, you will always see sponsored ads asking you to donate money to Google.

Or maybe we could pool some funds together and buy a worthwhile, memorable gift?  No idea what though.

dougz@isotropic.org is a registered user on paypal...

In addition to any donations that we would like to make to dougz, we should also ask our companies to make contributions for him taking down the site next week.  The productivity they will all start to get out of us will be well worth the donation

I took the initiative and just blind sent him some $ via the paypal e-mail. BTW, PayPal has an option where you can send it as a "payment" or a "gift". It seems to me that we are not "paying" him the money but "gifting" it.

Accept the challenge! The fact that he hasn't even posted on here to help this process along makes it even nicer to give him a nice little something.

..yeeeeah, except I'm not gonna send money blind.  That's kinda silly.

But seriously dougz, I've gotten at least as much entertainment out of iso as several games I bought on steam, so let's see a gracious acceptance on here!

I would do it except that I'm nervous that dougz won't accept it and then paypal will keep it... and lets face it - I'd probably rather burn my money then give it to paypal.

There is a Doug Z_____ with a mailing address in Palo Alto which is easily googled.
Just sayin'.

Or you could probably get away with just mailing it to Google's main campus with his name on it.  Especially since that's what he used on isotropic's registration...

Ok, ok, I'll be as gracious as I can.  :-)  It's totally not necessary the site was a labor of love, mostly but dougz@isotropic.org is indeed my paypal account and I stopped turning down free money years ago.

The Palo Alto address is no longer good; I moved a couple of weeks ago (remember downtime followed by a week of frequent disconnects?).  It should still forward, actually, or you can email me for my address if you prefer avoiding paypal.

Thanks for confirming the address Doug.  Spoils incoming...

Thanks so much for your hard work on isotropic.  It's an amazing feat and wonderful contribution to the Dominion community.

I would like to say thank you also.  When my wife was overseas we played a few games a few times a week.  Made the communication much easier.  A gift is on it's way.

Also, thanks for KILLING many boring hours at work (my fmaily doesn't appreciate it it as I got much better than them saving my losses for this)

I also plan on giving. I'm not sure we all realized how great a thing you gave us until now. Thanks for everything, Dougz.

Man. I would pay $25 a month easy to just keep playing what's already developed. But no, the modern economy demands some overproduced slow thing that's blocked at work with music and buggy moving parts and lots of kinds of fake money and microtransactions. Sigh.

Competence and quality seem to have so little monetary value for some reason. I don't know why that is but I'll help a little by giving $100 to Dougz and 0 to Goko.

Cool beans, will send a gift. I love your work-- thank you, and I will miss text mode Dominion! (Although I'll be starting a job I'll actually like, so I suppose that's good timing.)

On a complete side note, I don't really think of my appreciation of isotropic as part of a zero-sum-game where Goko has to lose out-- sure, it kind of sucks now, but I don't think it will in the future. I think the idea of not supporting the official product solely because the unofficial isotropic is so much better is a bit dangerous to unofficial, unlicensed labors of love, no? It gives some credence to the idea that these unofficial fan-created versions actively take away potential revenue for actual IP holders, which lead said holders of other properties to crack down and kill off potential awesome fan projects like isotropic. In a parallel and only slightly different universe, RGG shut down isotropic long ago because of this threat.

Not giving Goko money because they're lousy is one thing, but if isotropic's existence itself influenced that decision-- if, had isotropic not existed, we were all so desperate for online Dominion that we hurled cash at Goko without a thought-- then I think it's our responsibility as consumers to support the spirit of fan creation and prevent IP holders from viewing them as a threat. It's in the same way that pure pirates who never purchase music or movies can't make the argument that piracy leads to more eyeballs and thus more sales; as someone who does pirate things, I feel somewhat obligated to also support various media industries as much as I can, so that I can at least personally justify my behavior. isotropic's definitely no pirate project, but I think you get the idea.

Just my two cents...
