1. Other ways to accept monetary appreciation can't hurt.

While it is important to create better options, and while Flattr initially looked promising, it is inappropriate for this kind of project because it requires a monthly subscription.

Recurring fees incur a very large administrative overhead and are generally dangerous for non-profit and not-for-profit organizations. If administrative overhead starts approaches %3 then something is *very* wrong.

If there were no subscription fees involved, that would make it more attractive. However, realistically managing a subscription costs time because it has to be checked on at regular intervals.
