Thanks for your great contributions in this forum! At this point, I would suggest opening an account on “Patreon”! I would be glad to invite you a coffee via Patreon…
Opening a Patreon account is hard for us in China.
Your thanks are the best reward.
I’d like to repost the following insightful excerpt from a Chinese forum.
I have had numerous heart-to-heart conversations with several major contributors on the forum, and one topic that inevitably comes up is — What is the purpose, or rather, the significance of sharing resources?
Some say it’s to use resources as a means to gain the reputation of a Lei Feng (good Samaritan) in the digital realm. Others say it’s to use resources as a stepping stone to connect with distinguished contributors in the community.
Peeling back the layers of “Living in the ‘Cloud’” (cyberspace) , the understanding of sharing for most people is straightforward. This is precisely why many sharers start with enthusiasm but few keep sharing for long — Based on individual expectations for the future, fame is finite, and so are the leading lights. Sharers are human too; they may also experience a “midlife crisis” on the web, where their passion fades.
After such a transformation, the meaning of sharing comes full circle — Sharing is still about “a labor of love”, neither for the benefit of others, nor for personal gain, but with love as the voyage and time as the oar, to question, strengthen oneself, and ultimately understand and enlighten oneself.
That is a beautiful way of expressing how important is to share… I hope that my little contributions in the forum would help you and many others in China!
Our friend @Wankata is very active collecting resources for FreeMDict Cloud to the collection of 400 GiBs of dictionaries. I have always seen his work with great admiration! After I read that passage from the chinese forum, I couldn’t stop thinking about the great work of @Wankata ! Thanks, dear Friend!
I hope that more enthusiastic people would join the forum and benefit from our small contributions…!
Thanks for your effort and please keep up your good work!
