I wouldn't mind donating however I have an issue with bitcoin, not the currency itself but the processors, as I've been burned more than once before.

So here is a thought, a bit drawn out but do read through it.

You need to setup a company, so acquire a dead relative's name and social, use that to get an EIN for your company from the government for a sole propreitership, which takes very little paperwork in most states. Use that new company to get a P.O Box for an address to open a bank account in the business name. Use that to open a Stripe account and use the API with theanchorapp (Anchor invoicing) to allow people to donate monthly automatically.

It's not very difficult to do, just takes time, it'll let folks donate, and when you need the funds for the website you just draw them out from the business account instead of your own. Let's you stay relatively anonymous too.

I'd love to donate. But I will not donate with Bitcoins. If I give you $100 dollars I don't want you to be gambling with the donations in hopes that Bitcoins is up or even to the cost you need.

IMO that's the perfect thing to offer people that donate, no locked content or such, just make it easier to browse.
Other things you could offer is non-resized image (full resolution).

The donator captcha idea is great along with the full sized images, another idea would be the ability to hide hated/blacklisted comics to make browsing much easier, if that was the case I'm sure lots of us would pitch in

Why don't you try what Sh├Ądbase is doing? I don't know if there is a difference with original artwork and what's going on here but maybe it could work, personally I don't trust bitcoin but if there was another option I'd be happy to help when I can.

I would donate, but only if its without bitcoins :q

I don't feel safe converting cash to some virtual currency with no representation.

I hope you, Cerealguy sir, can find another way for us to donate without use of bitcoins.
I love the site you've built for us and I wish for its longevity as much as you and other users do
