Half of the term for our fundraising effort to buy Mac to try and implement Safari support in SPAW Editor has passed but we only have pledges for less than 25% of the target amount. Judging from these numbers logical conclusion would be to assume that there’s no real interest in Safari support and investing significant amount (at least in this project terms) into this feature wont be highly appreciated by the community.
Sure, theoretically this could change in those 12 days that are left but something tells me that it’s not going to happen.
However we do understand the importance of support of all possible browser platforms. So, here’s the deal: if by the end of fundraising period (March 18, 2007) we will have pledges for at least 50% of the amount we will pledge the remainder ourselves.
In case you really want SPAW to work under Safari or know someone who is not aware of this effort or have a blog or participate in some forum where community would appreciate this feature, you or your friends or hardcore Apple fans or even Apple representatives can make a pledge of $25 or higher by visiting the page of this effort at fundable.org
You can find more information on the effort in the initial post.
And don’t forget that all donors (even if we don’t collect the amount and you won’t be charged anything) will get 10% discount on any commercial SPAW Editor license. So, if you were planning to purchase an enterprise license you will actually save money by donating $25! And if our campaign still fails you will just get 10% without spending a cent simply for showing good will.
If you make a pledge don’t forget to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you a coupon code for your 10% discount since we can’t see your full email in fundable.org’s interface.
