I'm sorry you see it that way, certainly not the intention.

> Well, since it would be sent out in some official capacity by the OWASP Foundation, it doesn't say that it isn't mandatory, and it does not having a "we elect not to donate" option, it definitely has a "mandatory" vibe to me. It doesn't have to actually say "mandatory" for someone to interpret it that way.

>> I have some general objections to the idea of taking money from the chapters in order to fund the projects, but so far I've let those slide as this was supposed to be an optional contribution for chapters. This survey indicates quite the opposite.
>> To start with, it needs to say that this is "NOT MANDATORY" or "OPTIONAL" (which I don't care) in the intro paragraph. Preferably that text should be all caps and bold in order to avoid any confusion for chapter leaders.
>> Next, if you are not going to take me up on my original feedback to make this a fill-in-the-blank for a donation amount, then there unquestionably needs to be an "I choose not to donate at this time." option. As of your current survey form the minimum amount a leader could elect is 5% and that equates to a significant amount of money for a fair number of chapters.
>> Finally, I again suggest that this be a fill-in-the-blank for the donation amount. The current approach is far too restrictive and I'd also imagine many leaders would just select the "0%" option to avoid having to do the math involved with calculating percentages.
>> It also might not be a bad idea to highlight some of the projects that you plan on rebooting and what the money would be used for. "More visible", "higher quality" and "more relevant" are fluff terms. When you're talking about taking money from one group in order to give it to another you need to have a solid plan in place on what the money will actually be spent on.
