Thumbs up Donations

I would like to give a bit to help out the guys making these great roms and such, but I have a question...
What is generally considered a fair amount? Im not a rich guy or anything but I dont want to make a donation that might be considered insulting.

Any donation is better than none. The devs will be thankful for whatever you can afford. I have seen donations as small as a single dollar all the way up to 100 dollars.

There is no minimum or maximum amount ...as mentioned above...

I've donated to several developers over the years...and generally spend $25.00 to $50.00....

It is money well spent....and also lets our devs know we appreciate the countless hours of work...

$50.00 is a good chunk of cash...but if a dev takes 24-48 hours to compile a rom....then they get $1.00 to $2.00 dollars per hour for that $50.00 given...

A buck an hour isn't much for all of that time away from Family and Friends to give us great work....

The more we give...the more we get...

Don't break the bank....but give what you can...and I promise it will come back to you....in many forms....g

And please, donate to your favorite developer...
Without them, we'd be writing on rocks with a stick...g

Lots of developer donation links say "buy me a beer" or "buy me a coffee", so anyone can afford to do that.
