I think many of us are attached to Moodle as a part of our life. Imagine that one day, the Moodle leader says (Sorry, i just imagine, it's not real) : "Stop download and purchase our package. " . Many sites will be closed and many students will not have opportunity to learn online.
So I as a member of Moodle, will make a small donation the day Moodle 1.6 released. So, well, I suggest a campaign of donation for Moodle. 10 US or 1000 depends on your pocket. Let's help Moodle developers' team! We all know that they continue to work days and nights without donation!

Good idea, Giang.
I hope many people follow suit. Let's wait for 1.6 stable release with great expectation.
I totally agree with you. I'm finding a convenient way to make a donation for Moodle.
and use it as a communication tool also to spread moodle mood...everywhere in the business world ... there is life besides Wall Street...
Maybe other schools could do the same. I'll definitely suggest it to schools in our area. None of our schools could afford Moodle if we had to pay for it - so this is the least we can do.
Hoping to sell lots of cake ,
Sounds great to me! Count me in the campaign!
P.S. Can't wait until 1.6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MOODLE FOR EVER!!!
I'm very touched when there are more people in this campaign. I suddently realize that there are NOT MANY people who visit this "Open social forum". Usually, Moodlers go directly to the forums, which are related to their interest, issues or language.
So, I'm posting the same suggestion for donation in all forum. And I am sorry about this "unique" spam (I've never done it before.)
Please announce this compaign to your Moodle local language forum too!
LET' SEE MOODLE DEVELOPERS HAVING A GOOD DINNER WHEN THEY RELEASE STABLE MOODLE 1.6
Two things though:
1) Moodle will always be free and GPL. This is a better reason for supporting Moodle than a scare tactic.
2) Please do not spam the forums as you did. If everyone did it these forums would be unusable. I'm going through your profile now and deleting all your recent copies. (This is time I could have been spending on Moodle instead.)
Great idea, Giang!
Let us know how we can do this... you know, how and where do we send the funds, etc.
Thank you for the opportunity, Dinh Lu Giang
Keep us posted!
I love your campaign for donations for version 1.6. I am joining it!
By the way, I just twenty of your posts in my mailbox--just like spam. This is called cross-posting, and it is good thing to avoid. In fact, it might make people irritated enough to *not* donate, so be careful not to hurt the wonderful idea you are promoting.
If you want everyone in Moodle to get a post, please go the the Open Social Forum and post just once, and lots and lots of people will get it.
Count me in.
Any ETA for 1.6?
I hear that paypal can't be used in quite a few countries, including Russia. It might be a good idea to provide a variety of such services.
THE MOMENT HAS COME. We have been waiting for the message by Martin Dougiamas, our captain. And i would like to thank those who have joined my compaign and look forward to welcoming other moodlers who join.
You must install 1.6 to understand how Moodle team has worked so hard to make Moodle in its new, fresh, strong and powerful life. Can't imagine 1.7 but 1.6 is already amazing.
Just click here and in one minute, you can give something to support Moodle to TAKE OFF.
Best regards and best luck.
