You would still need to fill out the form for credit card information, including billing address, etc. even if SETI used a Wikipedia format for donations.

Unless you're actually suggesting that there's a direct link with your SETI account and your bank account. If so, then I'm not sure SETI wants that kind of responsibility were it to come to hacked accounts and stolen money.

I don't believe SETI is asking for your family history. So... I'm not sure I understand your comment.

I mean that if I want to donate it will be easy to me just to fill 3-4 fields - amount, recurring, in case of CC - CC number date and secure code, in case of paypal - nothing. Click and go. Well I'm web-developer, did this many times before. Whatever...

Why do you believe it's not the same here at SETI for at least your credit card? There's a donation link right on the home page: Donate.

Yes considering only the stuff marked with red asterisks are required.

[Edit] The problem is that SETI@home has no control of the credit card donation site as far as I can tell. I believe they are required to use the University's "Give to Cal" program, then you are allowed to specify where you would like the money to go.

If you want the process to be easier or simplified, you need to let the SysAdmins/Website Administrators know over at the University of California, Berkeley.

I hate it when that happens!

I've often thought that they should give two stars (of different colours). One colour would indicate that you have donated in the past and the other, like the current green star, would indicate your current status.

I just checked this years donations vs last year.

From sept - dec 2012 a total of 102,070.39
From sept - dec 2013 a total of 59,557

That's 40k less, a pretty significant amount if you ask me.

Possibly since the colo, 1 April 2013, and the project is now running historically smoothly, some people may think the project doesn't need $.

Isn't the fall of 2012 the period we had major fund-raisers for new servers and hard-drives for data transport from Arecibo and Green Bank?

Your lack of attentiveness to the web pages makes me a reluctant person to contribute when I see little information as to what is going on and updates...

Stark comparison to other projects where the people involved write regularly and give updates ...

Sorry but until you start telling us what is going on and post on a regular basis it appears to me as if I am asked to support people who havn't the time to let the people processing their data what is going on...

Volunteers or not, underpaid, etc, academics and researchers who cannot keep people informed and involved aren't going to get much support...

All you others who use these pages for attacks on people who state the truth... Well...
