I suspect the only reason we don't have one is because I'm against it. I think people who want a spell for reasonable purpose X should be able to get one instead of lectured on why they really should create their own or the like -- but a lot of people disagree with me. However, a spell-begging board may not be the best idea (even with donations required) as that will just encourage even the silliest requests.

A spell-begging forum wouldn't be an impetus for me to donate, nor readings of any sort. But I could see where it could be of value to others. Which made me have these thoughts:

Perhaps it would be useful to consider, if you're to do this thing, to structure various levels of access. For instance, 1 month access to the hypothetical spell board costs X amount, and 3 months costs a little more and a year costs a bit more. What this could do is 1) encourage people to participate who may feel like they don't really need a spell board in general, but okay maybe just this once... 2) provide more than one "price point" so those who don't have like $25 right this minute could still contribute *something* and 3) implement the principle of volume which encourages repeat "customers" and a more continuous monetary flow. Because maybe someone needs a spell a couple times a year, but they can only afford to throw $3 in this month and could maybe do it again a couple months down the line.

Know what I mean?
