Subject: [xsl] Say thanks to XSL-List with a tip? From: "M V" <htmlhack@xxxxxxxxxxx> Date: Tue, 11 Feb 2003 15:50:49 -0500
Hi all. I don't know if this idea has been kicked around before but, since
I've received so much help from the XSL-List, I was wondering if there was a
way to express gratitude with something else other than a simple thanks --
as much as I'm sure a word of thanks is always welcome.
What I thought of was, if a person helped me with a specific problem or gave
me some useful information, I would be happy to toss a tip in a PayPal tip
cup. I don't have to give a tip, as much as someone on the list doesn't
have to answer my query. But, if I post a query, and someone posts a useful
response, I personally wouldn't think twice about throwing a small tip their
way. Tips would be small, I'm sure, but I'm also sure they'd add up for
helpful and active respondents.
Perhaps a second additional way to say thanks is to offer tips to Dave
Pawson for maintaining the XSL FAQ. In that scenario, maybe Dave could use
the money to defer the cost of hosting the FAQ and, if there's anything left
at the end of the year, donate the balance to charity.
Either way, if an individual helps me out, and I know they have a tip cup,
I'd toss some money in there. Same for finding the FAQ useful. I bet
others would be willing to do the same -- and hopefully enough to make it
I thought I'd make the suggestion at least. Anyone else have some thoughts
