    The best way to donate would probably be to buy from shoptemp.

    ^ The above ^ [​IMG]

    Other than that we've never accepted donations (and I presume we never will) but thanks for the offer. [​IMG]

    the best way is to wait for the Homebrew Bounty, to come soon.
    Your donations will be *received* by GBAtemp, so they will be welcome.
    However you cannot tell us how to use that money. [​IMG] We will use it to redistribute it to homebrew developers to encourage the development of new homebrew.

    Use it how you want I just wanted to make a contribution to the community that has helped me so much. But without buying from a store cause they get a %age and then all that corp BS I just wanted to flat out donate. But I will sit aside the money and wait till I can donate and then I will.

    I guess the other way to help GBAtemp outside of buying from Shoptemp, is to also encourage others to buy at Shoptemp.
    I do it all the time, it helps GBAtemp through partnership, myself through a small commission, and the buyers from helping them buy wisely.

    Ok I am going to bow out of this thread gracefully cause I think I might have stirred up a hornets nest, when all I wanted to do was help. I am sorry.

    Soon, as soon as Costello and others get it organized.

    I'm glad that GBATemp is so useful to you; we hope you enjoy it for as long as you stay! [​IMG]

    So, if all 245,000 'temp members donated £2, that would mean the 'temp would make over 1/2 a million £s?

    god, i'm clever.
