MetaFilter is a community, and like any community, it's many people pummeling some resources. It's not just a single website done by and for one person, but thousands interact everyday and that takes adequate effort and resources to keep running. If you'd like to donate some money to MetaFilter, there are a couple options (the suggested donation is $5).
If you'd like to be listed below in the donation list, for amazon donations, please send me an email personally noting your donation and username. For paypal donations, put your username in the "special instructions for seller" field.
I wanted to say thanks to the people donating for the recent server upgrades, MetaFilter is what it is due to the contributions of thousands, and with the impending upgrade a few dozen members have even kicked in a few bucks to help with the process. I offer them my thanks, as it makes further upgrades possible.
Donations as of April 30th: $798.27 (after fees have been taken out)
