People who abuses the point donating button are not around much I suppose, I was told it was disabled because people are using it to game the platform by sending points to their Alts accounts. Its sad how there's always bad eggs trying to disrupt anything good, point donation is very important especially for under appreciated users/authors.
I have come across a few authors who writes even more than me but I wish to reward them more, especially when they feel ignored by mods. Moderators have a hard Job to read and curate everyone, hence the only other way we can help encourage these authors is to have use of point donations again otherwise we will lose many more pro publishers.
A special appeal of some sort I call this, perhaps a suggestion: can the point donations be opened to some level of users or something? Don't know how it will work but I believe its always doable with some coding tweaks. This is just to retain more undervalued writes still active on this platform.
