Besides my local tavern! lol

I was thinking I would give a couple bucks to the effort and buy some support credits to donate. The stuff I am most interested in wouldn't be covered by that small amount so I figure I'll put it towards a feature that it would help to cover. Probably something Bob has started but not reached the goal yet is my thought. So without me having to search deeply to figure it out Bob ( or anyone else who's started a goal in the feature requests) where do you think I should put it?

Duck-

I'd say either the multi-categorization (which is supported by more community members) or the ability to filter/refine search results (which I consider to be the most important current feature request delivering the greatest usability improvement). Both of these are also supported by Chris which I assume means that they align with his long-tem strategy for developing ocPortal.

Another that I am not supporting but which is also supported by Chris and may be something more important to your site is the "Different content, different comment topic forums" feature (0000025: Different content, different comment topic forums. - ocPortal feature tracker). This seems like it could be a very useful feature for many sites with lots of comments from varied source content types.

There are a number of other 1 and 2 hour entries which you can easily view by hitting the "Easy" tab instead of "Popular". Many of these are under-the-hood, internal "plumbing" issues which I feel that Chris will address whether or not they have community support. For example, any item which begins (or sometimes includes) the word "Drop," "Remove" or "Rename" is usually a plumbing issue that Chris is likely to address at some point in the future. I am sure Chris will hate me saying this but I think that the community should focus on sponsoring new features while Chris (as would any prudent developer) will make whatever foundational changes to improve the quality and maintainability of ocPortal.

Whatever you choose, your sponsorship will be greatly appreciated and help to make ocPortal a better product and strengthen the community that is so important for any open-source software's long-term success. In other words, you are a winner no matter the choice you make.

How about in the "Chris and Robbie beer fund"?  :cool:

Only joking. We'd both rather see it go into development!

Actually I like the Chris and Robbie Beer fund idea best! Where's the link to that? I figure yu guys will develop a bunch of stuff without sponsorship anyway so that fund suits me fine.  ;)
