I think Vlad and Co have the right to NOT give us a minimum required donations.For two reasons:
privacy and more importantly because that’ll become upper limit that we’ll barely hit.
Vlad and co have every right to keep a growth opportunity alive.
Only this “opportunity of growth” will ensure our SDK future.
Do we game devs get paid based on users growth or do gamers group and decide to pay us constant dev salary ? we are in it because it can grow.
I suggest Solar2D give a hint for its intended users on what is expected of them.
Donation page could look like this:
