I discussed this with @orenwolf and have permission to post this topic, though please do note that it is an initiative funded through Discourse exclusively and is not directly connected to Boing Boing.
We’ve done a number of “year in review” feedback topics in the past. Given the maturity of this community – it’s literally the oldest existent Discourse community in the world – while there is still plenty to do, we wanted to shift gears a bit and “give back” to the greater world based on all the beta testing effort community members have contributed since 2013 (!) to making this a great place to hang out and discuss things … despite the incredibly tumultuous times we find ourselves in.
With that in mind, the top 4 most liked posts from the charity proposal topic have been selected, and in this topic you can vote for which of those charities you wish your donation (sent on behalf of Discourse, at absolutely no cost to you) to be sent:
- Médecins Sans Frontières
- Black Lives Matter
Each individual vote is a donation to the charity of your choice, at absolutely no cost to you, with the following rules:
- you must be a trust level 1 member with an account at least two months old to be eligible. New (TL0) accounts should not be able to vote in this poll per the poll settings.
- if you’ve been a member since 2013, your vote donation (sent by Discourse) will be $7 + $8 years = $15.
- if you’ve been a member since 2019, your vote donation (sent by Discourse) will be $7 + $2 years = $9.
Thanks again for being a part of this community and all the time and effort you contribute to making BBS a great (and hopefully improving) place to spend time together.
Votes close on Saturday so please vote your preference – this is literally free money to help people less fortunate than ourselves.
