TIL that supports donating to an arbitrary github/twitter/bitbucket account regardless of if that person has a liberapay account, and if they join and claim an identity that has funding attached to it, they automatically get it transferred

@modgethanc But what I still don't understand: When they claim that bounty do they get all the money since my "promise to donate" or do they only get the value starting from the date they claim it?

@liberapayΒ 

@rugk @modgethanc The latter. Although it would be interesting to ask the donor if they want to send an initial burst to compensate for the time elapsed.

@Liberapay @rugk @modgethanc the reason for this is to avoid holding money in escrow for people (donees) without their permission.
