My question is: where will we go to find information like on MalariaWorld if it would shut-down tomorrow due to lack of funding?
Ofcourse I would gladly pay for this fine service. Somebody has to pay for it and invest the enormous effort required to keep a 8000+ users platform running...
How can I pay my share?

Hi Bart

First of all thanks to you and all the MalariaWorld team for all the work you do in developing this valuable and engaging platform.
While charging is a reasonable model to subsidize running costs, I wondered if it might be very valuable to keep a wide door open for other non-monetary ways for MalariaWorld members to contribute.
For instance, could members contributing their time be an alternative to cash payment for some e.g. writing 5 comments over the period of a year or posting a blog entry be promoted as an equivalent to a cash payment?

To offset non-monetary contributions, maybe a non-credit-card way to pay a subscription can be found so grant holders could be encouraged to easily contribute at a much higher rate?
