Great news from Kurt DeMaagd at YAS! He was listed as the financial contact on the YAS donations page, so I sent him a note. He gave me permission to post his reply here.

Excellent idea. We do track the donations, but that donation page is horribly out of date. Now all of the donations get grouped in with the general YAS donations. I could change the donation system to specifically track that. That would probably also address some of the concerns expressed in the discussion about giving to this faceless entity called YAS.

So, here's my counter-proposal. Give me a week to make some revisions to our system. Then we (and you) can specifically track the progress. Then next week we could go forward with your challenge.

Subject: perlmonks membership challenge proposal

I'd like to offer US$250 for a perlmonks donation
challenge. Originally I thought that this would be
pretty simple, but <laughs at self> the page I thought
was perlmonks donation history turned out to be
something else entirely. (Look at for
the details.)

My idea was that if 10 or more people donated US$25
each to perlmonks by Oct 31, I'd donate US$250.

Is there any way you can help me do this? If it
works well, perhaps you could solicit other people
to put up other challenges.

If you aren't the right person to talk to, could
you please forward this in the right direction?


- Ken

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
