Thanks for your reply! It was very important and meaningful. Calling "sistema gratuito" was a big mistake, I do know the difference from free to opensource, and will correct it at once.
That part about ads and donations was really annoying me. I had seem something like that model in another site, but the part about respect the ethics and mission of the libraries is something very important that I had forgot, and the ads will really go against it. I was nearly leaving without it, and now I have the confirmation. I will remove the donations and the ads part, the hosting will be completely free, without asking for donations, ads or fees.
Asking for that don`t really make sense. openbiblio is a openproject, and my aim with that idea is to help small librarians, folks that have or help at small or medium collections, at home, work, churches, public schools, community centers and things like that, and don`t have the resources to have a server, or time and knowledge to deal with the installation part. So, asking for financial contributions don`t match with the idea.
Other thing: the domain finishes with "com.br". I wasn't able to found something nice finishing with ".com". But I don`t want to restrict the site for the Brazilian public. I`m planning make the site multilingual soon, but first, there is something that I would like to ask: do you think that the whole idea is a good one? Is it valid?
I`m completely open to suggestions and another thoughts.
