Another reason to have a suggested donation is if you are using a venue that doesn't allow a cover. I'll swing either way depending on the opinions of other members, but I would like to point out that this would set a precedent that non-free events are ok at Sudo Room as long as there is a door split.

My vote does not matter at all, but I vote to just let them charge
admission, let them give you half. Things cost money, I don't think
there is anything wrong with openly acknowledging it and being
practical about it.
