    What benefits do you talk about? Yes, I donate as I feel good about that I actually can help someone in need. Not only my own satisfaction but I actually want to help people that are "less fortunate" than me. I hope that answers your questions correctly.

    I have donated little amounts to blogs a few times to get a backlink from there :p

    However, I think thats not really answering your question is it?

    I think he means being a donor on BHW. OP, there's a difference between being a donor and being a Jr. VIP. Jr. VIP carries useful benefits, being a donor, not quite as much. Read up on the rules on how to be eligible for Jr. VIP if that's something you're interested in.

    Donating is a way to say thank you. If you are talking about this forum? If you have received value and you appreciate the information and the community then you "pay it forward".

    Best,

    Thanks for the replies, just wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing out on any pay-to-use features :p nice to know that there aren't any essential ones for a casual poster

    Not sure why it keeps being mentioned that if you find the forum helpful to donate. The value is being provided by member and mods, last thing I know is neither one of them get any share of that money just the owner. Let's be real it is a business like anything else so this kind of donating well you can go with JrVip and get your sig and that ...

    I donate about once a month. Sometimes goes for animals, sometimes humans, sometimes some cool projects.

    From what I've seen over my time at BHW, most of them who actually make serious money IMing, dont browse BHW much, post very less and don't give a damn about Jr VIP status ,Thanks etc.

    But if you donate for Jr VIP status, you get access to Jr VIP section where apparently there are less saturated money making methods being shared.
