    I think it's OK to ask for donations from people. After all they are called DONATIONS. My problem with Tazmo is that he has that NarutoFan PLUS membership which is extortion of Kishimoto's own work. I'm not really sure if NarutoChaos has the same problem of exhortion but I guess their way of doing it is that they have a monthly quota and once they reach it they dont ask for anymore. I'm not really sure if thats the same thing that Tazmo does though.

    On the other hand, if members wanted to donate i dont think it would be bad for the admins to accept donations. Its a DONATION afterall. But i guess asking/begging/imploring for donations is out of the question.

    I think we should donate. Then, if stoptazmo makes enough, they could give people an option of turning popups on or off. Personally, I download so much from stoptazmo that I would love to help out. Funny thing was I was just about to ask if I could donate when suddenly I saw this. Guess God is telling me something...

    To be honest I created this post as a means to let the admins of this site to know that their work is -greatly- appreciated. I have never seen a manga site that gives so much and asks for so little.

    I have been very disapointed in the response of this topic, even if that response was an overwelming majority vote of 'No, I don't want to donate.'

    To be up for so long and to only receive 8 votes is nothing short of sad.

    So I say paste your paypal donation link in a descrete location, I will send you my $10 of gratitude.

    The reason we have popups is because we don't get any donations. Have to make money somehow.

    totally agrees.
    We must never shed tears, if we give in to the emotions then it only becomes proof of our inablilty to control it!!!

    I like the idea of donations and I have, and will try to continue donating to this site. I do not expect anything from giving money towards this site, only that it stays up.

    It is one of my huge sites that I can get a bunch of manga's that I love and read them when they come up (Not to mention new mangas).

    I also agree with the idea of either not accepting donations once the quota has been met, or using the extra for the following months to come. Anyone that can't spare a couple dollars for all this type of manga, ImO must have a pretty valid reason not to.

    What if you had to buy these mangas instead of downloading them? I bet most wouldn't bother with half of these if they had to pay for each of the volumes/chapters.

    I can't view the second page of this forum so sorry if something was addressed to my post, I wouldn't know.

    I'd certainly donate, except that I'm only 14 and I'm not allowed to have a paypal account, but my parents totally back up stamp and envelope. So if Stoptazmo had such a system maybe more donations would come in?

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Ok this is my opinion.

    First of all, why are pop-ups a big deal? Dont tell me you guys are using Internet Explorer. Get FIREFOX. It rocks and blocks out all my pop-ups so i dont notice nothing. That means I dont mind if Kane increases the Pop-ups and increases the manga, cause i dont feel any pain from it.

    Second - I feel it is good for StopTazmo to have donations. Its like calling StopTazmo a Robin Hood in the Manga community etc. Rich people donating money so that poor people can download manga. It is completely safe as long as it is kept to a minimum and does not over do it like F**KN TAZMO.

    I dont mind if people object, agree or debate in anyway about my views. It isnt that big a deal.
