Hi Mike,

You are correct about new users. However, we probably have regular
users, like me, who download every new versions. So, potentially a good
reminder to hundreds of thousands of regular users who would now see the
ad before going to the next page that is so familiar to them where they
just look for that download button.

The return-users are probably the ones who will donate a bit for

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the idea! Although we don't have a donate button on the
download page, as soon as someone clicks the yellow "Download" button,
they're prompted to make an (optional!) donation. We could add a button
in the previous step, but I think most people won't want to donate until
they've actually decided to try the software. But maybe it's worth
trying out...

I just noticed the small ad-banner on the TDF/LibreOffice blog. Congrats
on the ad! IMO, it is effective and gives all the good reasons to donate
to the project.

Is there a way to add this to the site? Especially on
the download page []?

As a general rule, there should be some space set aside on the download
page for donation especially for an ad like on the blog page where it
seems to hit all of the right reasons to donate to the project.

I would also suggest to add to the revolving reasons an additional
"Imagine the possibilities with the right funding." or something of the
sort, just to tie in all of the arguments revolving on the ad. This will
give a potential donor some time/reason to reflect on what was just shown.
