Disclaimer: I am not an employee of GitHub nor a member of the Atom Core team. I’m just an enthusiastic volunteer.

GitHub takes care of all of the hosting expenses for the https://atom.io website, including this message board. So donations to the site aren’t necessary. If you want to monetarily contribute directly to the cost of developing Atom, I can ask them if such a thing is possible. Or you could perhaps just get a subscription to GitHub.

On the other hand, you may want to consider donating to one of the following charities. I have donated to or volunteered with all of them in the past:

  • Child’s Play — brings stuffed animals, toys and video games to children’s hospitals and domestic abuse shelters around the world
  • Project for Awesome 2015 — A charity of charities … read the site, it’ll make more sense than me trying to explain :laughing:
  • App Camp for Girls — helps middle-school age girls learn about software development
  • Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network — besides educating about sexual abuse, they operate a national toll-free hotline (1-800-656-HOPE) for people to get help of all sorts. A friend of mine called them when they were considering suicide and it really helped.

These are just the charities I have personal experience with (that’s why they’re USA-centric). Please everyone feel free to suggest charities they have experience with.

It would be odd to donate to a for-profit company. (grin)


#4

Oh, interesting. :slight_smile:

So Atom is a direct product of Github?


#5

:laughing: Very true.


#6

Yes, it is.


#7

Yea, that’s what I meant. :slight_smile: That was my intention. I like to support the programs that I use regularly when I can.


#8

It came directly from github and is now open-source, but they keep full-control. They have a team of 4 or 5 employees supporting it.

I suppose you’re right lol. I’ll provide a link back at the bottom of my website like a “Created With” icon then. That’s probably the best thing to do in this case.

Thanks for all the info guys!


#11

I’m not all that good with making buttons and images and graphics but I did the best I could! :smile:

I’ll be putting this image on the footer of my website to show support!


#12

Seems like an opportune moment to mention that Atom ROCKS!


#13

I would suggest using the official logo (with text), main point being making it more recognizable at a glance. Using the same green the editor uses would help, too.
Also please, provide a link to your page (if you don’t mind) so we can check how it looks :smile:

P.S: Of course this is just a suggestion. You’re the one to decide how your page should look like

I had to take it down, it looked butt ugly as I’m just terrible with graphics lol. My website is http://www.thexeno.com and the forums are located at http://www.thexeno.com/forums

I’ll probably just use the official logo I guess w/out the “created with” text.
