Donations are (somehow) re-enabled. Somehow? Well here is the thing:
Paypal never offered donations for Asia-Pacific. I live in Hong Kong but Idid not know that. I simply installed a wordpress-widget that created a donation button and hooked it up to my paypal account. Paypal however does not know the regulations about donation legislation (taxes, declarations etc) for all countries in Asia (I guess for none). So they found out that some people have donation buttons and disabled them to save them from any legal claims – without telling me about it. So people who wanted to donate simply got an error message. After calling them 3 times where they told me that they are about to fix the issue I finally found out what the problem actually was. So donations are not possible anymore.
But guess what: You can still buy stuff. So instead of you donating money after which I give you donator status, you can now BUY the donator status. The difference is that there is no more an empty field in which you can enter any amount you like, but instead there is a drop down menu to choose from. I tried to make a reasonable selection of amounts to choose from.
All the same if you ask me. Happy to sell you some donator status :).
