in thread PM Development Fund

I am in pmdev myself. I am also the author of Throw your money at tye!.

I don't think there's any conflict here - heck, personally I wouldn't want any money for my efforts. Compared to what tye has contributed, they're nothing. I can't speak for every other pmdev here, some of whom have actually contributed a significant amount of work, but I'm fairly certain the others will all say the same - there's no issue of competition here.

I don't see this as a matter of power either. I'm not proposing tye because he is The Boss, nor am I expecting it to have no impact on his past or future say in monasterial matters.

I voted for this this on the grounds that he is the one person in a position to take this project on which will benefit the site and its community, and on the grounds that his time is as valuable as anyone else's.

Much as I'd like to, I don't personally have the ability to offer to the site and community what tye can. The alternative I can take is to support others with the required capabilities in any manner necessary for them to do what I would like to be able to. Whether they accept the offer is at their own discretion.

In summary, I believe this has no effect on the grassroots nature of the community.

Makeshifts last the longest.
