#thankyou and #donate
I would like to propose changing the UI of diaspora's stream page in the following way:
On the left side of the page, where one can see "Invite friends", "Need help", "Connect services" etc., I suggest adding the section "Donate" which would allow users to donate to diasporafoundation, also adding the #thankyou hashtag like "Do you wanna...say #thankyou?" apart from the #feature, #bug, #NewHere, and #question hashtags.
Why do I propose this? For various reasons. Firstly, people like to appreciate and be appreciated, and we can make it easy for them to express their gratitude by introducing the #thankyou hashtag. I think it would make the community more interactive in all sorts of ways. Secondly, the core developers (and other developers) would be more motivated if they were offered some financial support. Therefore I think it is vital that we introduce the donation section as suggested (or if you come up with better ideas, anything goes!). We need to show respect to programmers and that's one way to do it. It's not all about the money, but it might work out as a motivation, and I hope you do understand my concern.

There's not so much of an interest in this topic and at the moment I don't feel like being really motivated to promote diaspora* any longer. Hopefully other enthusiastic people will get involved and change diaspora* for better. Unfortunately things move slowly and openness to change is hard to be achieved under such circumstances.
On the left-hand side of the diaspora* client main page, where one can see “Invite friends”, “Need help”, “Connect services” etc., I suggest inserting the #thankyou hashtag in this way:
“Do you wanna…say #thankyou?”
in addition to the #feature, #bug, #NewHere, and #question hashtags. That will make promotion (one thing that I did for the diaspora* community during the past weeks) easier, and diasporians could say thank you to developers or to other divine instances ;)
Agree - Yes, it would make promotion easier
Disagree - No, it won't make promotion easier
Block - Useless feature
Abstain - I don't really care about this
