I've been on MySensors for some time now, and during this time I "evolved" from a guy that normally added a new outlet to my house, to someone that now understands a "bit" more of electronics and even developed and build my own IOT devices/nodes. This has been a hell of an experience, and I only have to say thank you to all the staff, developers, and community members that help not only this project grow but also all of us (intellectually and in this hobby).
I know that the main focus of this community is not to make a profit, but lets face it, every thing in this world needs a bit of juice ($$$) to make it flow. So I came up with an idea, why not add a way to sponsor this project? Something like Patreon or a membership? It would be totally optional, but the members would have access to for example give aways or something. And what would you guys do with a money? Easy free beer... ...
The money could be used to pay for hosting (damm this things can get expensive when a community grows... respect @hek) or to help guys like @tbowmo (sorry to all others just the first name that got to my mind when I was typing) to develop new prototypes and get them at low prices to all of us!
Basically this post is only to say thank you to all of you guys that helped this community get where it is, by developing the software or by developing the hardware (too many people to name in openhardware.io.
