Description

Create a more prominent donation button/link/section on the download and download-easy pages. As of today, we've had millions of downloads, it would be great if we had some percent of those people donating to us for the software.

What other sites have donate buttons on their download pages and do it well?

We might also find that putting less stuff on our download page will make it easier to find a donate button.

See e.g. http://www.bittorrent.com/downloads/complete?os=win

Replying to arma:

I haven't found any I like, so we're going to blaze our own path.

I think defaulting to download-easy will solve this.

Added in a donation widget to the download page. Everything is still served up locally so we aren't leaking download data to paypal.
