Precisely! I don't have a problem with donations as a whole. It's the way people go about trying to get them with phrases about it being "appreciated but not needed" in big letters right above a PayPal link for something like a modified apk that they got from another thread on this forum...or for a ROM that does nothing but skin the notif bar & battery icons.
I do not donate because as you said, most devs are not developers at all, simply modifiers and tweakers of software created by the companies selling the phones. A true developer (eg someone who can write fresh code such as a camera driver for ICS or similar) would be a much more viable candidate to receive a donation, however this won't happen as seemingly no dev is able to actually code, instead waiting for official software. Until "developing" becomes more than copy-paste with a couple tweaks, I do not believe donations should be requested.

I do agree with OP, if i were to be a developer i think i'll be more happier seeing people use what i created but if people wish to donate then fine.
I do respect developers who always try to make something for the community e.g madmaxx82 for 4ext .... i think people like this will always get donation even if they don´t ask.
hey man how about a little signature control there....thats a little too far bud for that virtuous image...ish shouldn't be near that big. And also since we are on the topic of things, that big giant "DON't 4GET TO CLICK THANKS BUTTON".....you might as well be asking for donations. lol
shouldn't have to ask for the things. lol
