    Showing Appreciation

    I have had a lot of benefit from the forum. Forget which forum but at the bottom of posts there was a charity suggestion for people to support. I wonder if some arrangement made by the forum to click and contribute. Obvious everything voluntarily.
    I am grateful to a few people that I would like to make a tangible recognition.

    Personally, I don't think these forums are the right platform to post charity requests.

      Apologies, I've obviously not been clear. I was not meaning postings charity requests. However, some of the help I've had from the forum would have cost around 250 pounds at least from a solicitor. I will make my own private charity contribution, but thought it wouldbe nice it it were to a charity the person who was so generous supports.
      If not thought a good idea then that's fine.
      Thanks for giving an honest opinion.

        All advice offered on these forums should be freely given, openly stated charitable donations in response might seem fine, but other people receiving advice should not feel obliged to follow suit, and for example a signature line like 'If my advice has been useful please feel free to donate to ....' would not be acceptable.

          When I posted on Garden Law I had a signature which said: "If you have benefited from advice on this site please consider contributing to a cancer charity." No one objected. I cannot think what is objectionable about it. Some of us spend a lot of time on here for no reward knowing that the site-owners are making money. I have no problem with that, but making a general request to consider a charitable donation (not necessarily to a cancer charity) is a more than a reasonable quid pro quo.

            Why should anyone feel obligated to give ?
            I think it gives an opportunity for people who are grateful to feel they are giving something back to a cause valued by the person giving advice.
            However, if not wanted so be it. I see no problem with it.

                Forum software is being stupid.
                I'll try again later.
