Upon joining, I immediately looked at donating - but decided against it when I couldn't do so without providing personal information or tying the donation to my account by logging in, even by Bitcoin. Am I missing something? Is there a way to donate anonymously?

I also looked at making an ad, but it appears that "payment options" gets skipped and I'm forced to pay with a credit card, I can't win!

Edit: Donated direct to Voat's coinbase wallet address, but I'd still like to place an ad and pay with Bitcoin.

The Coinbase link (https://www.coinbase.com/voat)) should have a "Use bitcoin address" option which shouldn't require an account unlike the "Use Coinbase wallet" option which will require one.

If you click the bitcoin address in the coinbase page, it will open your default bitcoin client.

Yes yes yes yes yes. This. I had committed to a donation until I realized I needed all my personal info.

Plus there's this. Which does not inspire me to hand over info.

I'm glad I'm not the only one, I pointed this issue on the front page post about donating yesterday and got downvotes and an insult... For being wary about not having more secure options. I noticed the store doesn't say it's secured by paypal or other business protection services.

I bit the bullet and donated $5, but will be watching my card like a hawk. Don't want to see this site go down.

(Also, it's been proven what the admins have been up to and have the power to do, but only 160k people checked Voat out? Wonder how many of those made accounts...)

Yeah, new to Voat, I'd like to help out, but don't care to expose any more personal information. Good luck Voat, but I can't afford anything more than that under the current setup.
