So, now it is the day to send your thanks!
- Remember to add [TADD] in the beginning of the subject line, to help filtering
- Describe in your own words why you like the software
- If you want, add a little text in the end of the message, like “PS. This message is part of Thank a Dev Day, a project to appreciate Free Software developers:https://thankadev.wordpress.com/”
Here is an example message I sent to one author of one bittorrent client (don’t copy it as it is, it is just an example how to thank a dev ;)) :
Subject:[TADD] Thank you for The Project
Body: Dear Author,
I have been using <the project name here> bittorrent client for about a year now, and nowadays I am using it every day at home (using Gentoo).
It is very easy to use, it is very stable (I haven’t had any bugs when using it),it has very simple GUI, and it does not consume very much of computer’s
resources (Hooray for C! :))
With it, I have been able to successfully download and seed large .iso-files for free software operating systems (of course ;))
Keep up the good work, I am sure I will have premium peer-to-peer experience in the future also, thanks to you and your team!
