I'd only go for it if the money was going towards stuff that really helped OC3D to deliver more and varying content.

There is plenty of stuff that simply cannot be done because the time it would take to produce is not worth the number of views we could get. As much as we enjoy our work it is all worthless if the rent can't get paid.

It's a business. You need to be profitable - or at least break even so yeah it should be considered the same as any income stream and like WYP said the rent's gotta be paid.

I love the fact that ads here aren't in your face and hijacking your browser. I don't see anything wrong with having a donate button or even affiliate links as long as they don't conflict with your main sponsors.

I think it's an English thing maybe - much like Aussies we don't like to ask for help it seems a bit undignified. Just a cultural thing maybe the North Americans (yes Canada as well) have a different take on it.

Nope we hate handouts just as well.
Although if it genuinely helps in this case, I don't see a problem with it provided that it goes to say better cameras, audio gear, lights, etc. As long as the person receiving these donations are actively communicating and relaying what the money is being used for, I don't mind helping. It's just when LTT takes this way to far and begs for money almost everywhere..

Simplest way is to follow the Tek Syndicate model IMO they have done it correctly and there not begging for money (They might do it but it's in joke form) the only time they ever talk about it is on The Tek never ever in a product review video.

I agree Linus was good before the fame went to his head I quite enjoyed his earlier videos but I have not watched him recently. As a brit I was always taught to stand on my own two feet and not ask for handouts etc although I did get a motherboard from the generous TTL. I am nearly half a century old so I put it down to "old fashioned morals" but any handout I ever get I was always taught to be grateful that somebody has given it to me and they did not have to.
