We're improving the Unofficial Docs - Support us!

Hi everyone,

Tens of thousands of users visit the Unofficial Documentation. Now FichteFoll and I want to make it better. And we have a plan. :)

Please tell your friends and all Sublime Text fans you know, and help us spread the word!

Great project and I would like to support it! But I don't really want to sign up for another platform just for one thing (they ask me to sign up even when I say "log in with github). Is there a way to support the project without going through bountysource (e.g. paypal account)?

Thanks a lot for the encouragement! :)

The BountySource team have been very responsive (kudos to them!) and they've tried to fix the problem.

Gregor, It'd be great if you could try again and confirm it's working. As a project owner, it's hard for me to see if the process is the same as for a regular user.

If the problem persists, however, we'll set up an alternative payment option.

Yes, I understand. It still doesn't seem to work for me. Happy to try again though. Here is what I am doing:
Pledge Now -> enter pledge amount -> select paypal -> click on Checkout -> on screen "Sign in or create an account", click github -> confirm on github page -> Now I am back on "Sign in or create an account, Complete the fields below to sign up for Bountysource"

So it looks like I have to sign up for a separate account despite clicking on github...

No payment option is the best way to be clear from the beginning.Is out of range $4000 without justification.Is the first time i see this "support"in the web.

Sigh.


I don't get where you come from calling the community lame. There are many of us who only come to these threads to try to answer questions and give help. Some of the most useful resources are provided by the community. What is "lame" is the people who obviously only come to the threads to troll. They find out what the current hot button is on the threads and post "feature xxx is broken for me". Then when we ask for more information, they leave the thread and never respond.

As for the other, that's a matter of perception. Am I frustrated with the apparent glacial pace of SublimeText development? Would I love it if SublmeText 3 were released tomorrow? Heck yeah. If only so people would stop complaining. But then they'd probably just find something else to complain about.

That took longer than expected... Apparently BountySource require the creation of an account with them, so we've set up an alternate payment option for those of you who prefer not to.
