BUMP.
Why is it that the first time you do research, it is re-search, rather than just search?

The idea is not a sound idea, most ( the majority ) of the members on Cake Central are hobby bakers and a lot of those are stay at home moms with limited incomes, they are very comfortable coming to this site and getting what they need to improve theirs skills, vent, and "THAT A GIRL/BOY" each other...if we start charging fees and such...it's going to keep a LOT of great people off.

If you're looking to score some free video tutorials, you should really consider scrounging around the Pastry Forums and companies that offer quick ones on their web sites.

asking for contributions or donations is going to scare a LOT of people away from a wonderful resource like Cake Central. A resourse that may be the ONLY place they can get answer to their questions and get tips on new products and techniques.

Starting to charge fees for this forum is changing the "SPIRIT" in which Jackie and Heath started with.

The DVD's and Videos out there are not really that expensive, you can ask your parents to get you a couple for your next birthday. After all a person only turns 16 once!!

and this is something that you REALLY should've proposed to Jackie and Heath privately, let them discuss this between them and then you and THEN and only then bring it to the boards.

IMHO

I wasn't proposing charging fees I was saying if we could by the bandwidth for a year or something after making a fund specifically for this or something. IDK. It was just an idea. Usually Jackie or Heath come into the forum and say what they think, but you're right I should probably just contact them directly. Thanks for the insight.

You're talking to me again? icon_lol.gif J/k.

I wouldn't mind donating, if I had an international credit card. But I don't, and I asume this goes for at least some of the non US citizens here.

Perhaps the 'Suggestions' forum would have been a better place for this thread -- or PM'ing Jackie and Heath directly to see if they have something like this in the works? I know they are constantly planning upgrades for CC, and they both work on CC like it's a full time job already. icon_smile.gif

There are already plenty of free cake decorating videos on youtube, which we always share with each other when we find them. Even if there is a positive vote on this suggestion, I doubt highly that it would generate enough capital to pay for the time and work involved.

We already have plans in the development of CC to include instructional videos, however we have several high priority development items ahead of it in the pipeline.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

On another note.. I know people are just trying to help.. but Jackie and I would prefer it if people did not open discussions of collecting money for special funds to implement features at Cake Central.

If an solicitation of funds for Cake Central takes place, it needs to come directly from Jackie or I to avoid confusion in the community.

Thank you to everyone for your interest in the future development of CC, we look forward to hearing everyone's ideas.
