So, for the last month or so, donations have been...well, kind of wonky.
No, this isn't going to be that kind of post.
I've been trying to figure out if there's a reason why donations have been off. Is it the slow pace of development, or do people just not have requests? Or is money tight this time of year?
I used to have a policy of, if I didn't make donations for a given week, the following week would not have any game releases. I stopped doing that because a) it was kind of malicious, and b) I like it when people play my game and give me feedback. I would much rather encourage donations through positive reinforcement instead of negative reinforcement, which is why I stopped doing that (and no, I'm not going to start doing it again, no worries).
So I guess the question here is, what can I do to encourage donations? I know the last couple of weeks have been weird, what with being sick and Mass Effect 3 getting in the way, but I do like to know that I'm responding to the requests of the community. So if there's something I'm doing wrong, please let me know. If you have a better idea for donations, leave a comment.
