from the results of the first two days, we definitely can say that the new download page is a huge success. From a gut feeling, I'd say we are seeing an increase by factor 5-10, which confirms the experiences other projects have made.

Be advised that it is not about nagging the user, not at all - but as the feedback we received confirms, many people simply do not read the donation request and the information that TDF needs money, unless you prominently show it during the download, the very moment when the user "receives" something from the project. Despite concrete funding goals, where we received a lot of donations, this so far proofs to be the most effective way of fundraising for us.

The approach definitely needs improvements, no doubts, especially about downloading help pack and language files, and I have just seen Goran's proposal, which really looks like a very good compromise.

I was in Berlin for the last two days and am on my way home, but I will follow-up later next week with details on how to process.

Thanks again everyone for your help and feedback,
