I think at the moment I want to hold a bit on this decision . I need to decide what effect if any this would have on development for the site by pmdev or others. I would like to see the work on the node cache completed and think tye is in a unique position to complete it. However I also like PerlMonks as a grass roots kind of operation. I don't want people to feel like their work isn't important or valued if they haven't been paid for their efforts. I also don't want "who's on the payroll" to define who has power within the community. I like PerlMonks to be a place where everyone has a voice, and everyone has a chance to rise to the top. I don't want to see adding money to the equation, divide people within the community.
