Donation history

I was curious how our PayPal donations stacked up over time, so I downloaded our history and stuffed it into Excel and had it draw a pretty graph:


Please note that this does not include donations received outside of PayPal (most notably $1200 from Paul Sharpe). Also, the December 2004 figures only include donations received before December 19, when we switched over to accepting donations via the new MetaBrainz PayPal account.

  1. I have a website that is purly content based and had a donation button on it originally and some of my closest friends said that they actually donated a nominal amount to the website but after logging into paypal, I never saw any record of such a donation. Is there any credence to this and have you ever heard of this in your pay pal studies?
    best regards and interesting stuff,

  2. I’ve never experienced it, but my donations are not tied to a specific service, so if I didn’t get it I wouldn’t know unless someone complained. So far no one has.
