Seti just won too. Had this scatcher laying around here for the last week and decided to finally play it. Won $10 bucks.
Since I was reading this thread, I donated it, before I could spend it.

In case anyone is interested total donations since 24th November

$1998

Yesterday was $1335!!

Well done Mark for starting this off.

Of course this includes ALL donations since then not necessarily from people in this thread!

If you want to see the donation totals since November 2010 look here:

For just pennies a day you can feed a SETI@Home staff member.

Perhaps they should implement a star ratting system. Sort of like the eBay one I imagine. With different colored stars to show how much has been donated. This might entice people to donate more to get their preferred color of star. Perhaps an option that doesn't indicated an amount for those that like to show they have donated, but don't wish to indicate how much.

My preferred star color is transparent/anonymous.

I would strongly oppose a "star rating system".

I am no longer working full time and have to be a bit more careful with money, because I can only afford a smaller amount. It would not worry me but others who are on lower income or retired should not be "discriminated against" with a "lower value" star.

I would probably donate anonymously or stop altogether.

Bernie, as Ang has posted, the different coloured stars are in the works. I would like to see the green one as a default, as I don't have a lot of extra money either.
But I do volunteer work and I get paid zip. Still a nonvalue contribution to Seti.
That said, some of the big donors should have bragging rights, if they choose too. Or just opt out, as some do.
