Donation Drive '07 - Multiple Choice Is Just More Fun

Every year we come to you for two weeks asking for your contributions in helping us continue operating Gamerswithjobs.com, and we hope that the service, content and community we provide throughout the year justifies the request. We take great efforts to make GWJ an uncommon home, even a safe haven, on the internet where we can talk without suffering the usual antics that become so tedious elsewhere. We provide you with articles by talented writers, discover and cultivate new talent and bring you the quality of written word that is sought by the most respected publications in the industry. We bring you a weekly podcast with increasing quality of on-site reports from places like Gencon and Comicon as well as interviews and special guests discussing the finer points of the gaming industry. We run game servers, organize community events, strictly moderate our forums and make constant and consistent effort to create an adult environment for adult gamers. So, we come along once a year, for two weeks, and ask for whatever contribution you think Gamerswithjobs.com is worth. Oh, and we give away prizes too.

So, enough of why you should support GWJ, and on to what you will get by supporting GWJ. We have quite a bit to giveaway this year, but our Grand Prize is up to you. This year, you pick your grandprize from the following choice:

Grand Prize: An Xbox 360 - OR - A Playstation 3 - OR - A Nintendo Wii - OR - A GeForce 8800 GTS

As always donors get a special forum icon added to their name. Readers who have donated once get a golden key, twice gets a gold watch, three donations gets the iconic weiner bomb, and our new four years gets you a company car and ... well, you'll see number five soon enough.

How to Win :

As always we offer multiple entries for those of you who donate a little more.

The scale for this year is the same as previous years.

Donations/Entries into the drawing (U.S. funds)

$50 - $74 = 3 entries
$75 and up = 4 entries

Only one prize per person! Winners will be drawn and announced during the 50th episode of the GWJ Conference Call, which will air on September 19th.

If you're not from North America, you can still win the grand prize provided you have a local Amazon.com site we can order from!

You don't have to sign up to pay pal. On the right side of the screen you just click on the "Don't have a paypal account."

Here's to the excellent writing, the thoughtful forum moderation, the wonderful artwork, an overflowing friends list and hours and hours of gaming fun.

Donation sent. It's not much but I hope you will still visit me Certis.

Will yours?

Sent. Keep up the great commentary and thought provoking podcasts.

Will you let us know how much total donation moolah you received from the masses?

Sent. Glad to be able to support the site I got used to call home.

The money should be reformulating into a cohesive unit after electronically zipping to you. Thanks for another great year.

I'm in!

Same!

Donation gladly sent.

I want to thank you guys for the work you do in maintaining this site. It is rare to find such a community with a high level of standards and the maturity of the members. It is for this reason that GWJ is the only free site that I financially contribute to. Thank you for providing a place where I can get a break from the daily grind.

Ok, I've given up my paypal virginity for this site.

Dont let me regret it in the morning by like suddenly banning me or anything... Certis threatened it that ONE time I killed him in GoW... at least I think I killed him once in GoW... oh who knows, maybe it was my imagination....

Dreaming of Certis is the first sign of madness...

Sent. Because I <3 you guys so much.

Sent. Thanks!

See, I sent my money as my thanks and my endorsement. I'm sort of feeling there should be more posts saying:

Sent. You're welcome!

But maybe I've been listening too much to Andrew Ryan.

"My name is wordsmythe and I'm here to ask you a question. Is Certis not entitled to the sweat of his brow?"

That still doesn't sit well with me... i swear it should be "off"...

My boss doesn't need to see my IP showing up in more Wiki edit scans. Otherwise I'd take care of that for you.

You guys are paying a bit too much attention to each other colons. I mean, it's not like any of you have a Phd in colonization do you?

Well, I did beat the game. Man, that was a sweet game!

Donation sent! Gentlemen, such praise as I'd like to give is not possible through mere forums. Such praise can only be shown at the end of a spinning, wet chainsaw. Thanks for the last few years of commentary, and the last year solid year of community.

Donation sent! I just made it!

I'll be locking down donations at around noon CST today (Monday).
