Donation Drive Update #2

Another day, another set of tags done! Some folks have been asking exactly what these tags are and how they work. Every year when we do the donation drive, we create a new forum icon (the little golden symbols under user names) to signify your support of the site. It goes in order, so the first time you donate you'll get the golden key. Here are the icons:

1st: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/officekey.gif) - The key to the executive bathrooms.

2nd: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/watchdonate.gif) - A gold watch. It tells time.

3rd: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/goldweinerbomb.gif) - The golden Weiner Bomb. If you have to ask ... well, I'm sure someone will tell you.

4th: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/donatecar.gif) - The company car.

5th: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/goldenjet.gif) - The company jet, perfect for sealing the deal on a hot date.

6th: IMAGE(http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/sites/all/themes/gwj/images/ranks/cruiseship.gif) - Rounding out the luxury travel options.

I hope that clears it up! For more info on the drive and our awesome prizes, hit the main post. Read on for the list of donors we've tagged. Don't worry if you're not on here yet, we have lots more to do. Thanks for all the support!

Is it a little too early to suggest a golden bust of Ken Levine for next year's icon?

I can certainly imagine donating for the rest of the life of the website (set up some rotating trust fund), but is it possible to "freeze" my donation icon at the wiener bomb?

No one needs to move up the icon ladder if they don't want to. Just let us know!

Yeah, I'm kind of liking the wiener bomb too.

Ah, the executive bathroom, where all the big nobs hang out.

Thank you, I wish you could un-read things.

Also, is it just me, or is the list of people who donated not up yet?

Edit - I swear it said see the main post for the list, and that it wasn't here when I started typing... Hey, I just went through a hurricane and all, and I'm still shaken by the whole thing. Yeah, that's it.

Weiner Bomb! Weiner Bomb! Weiner Bomb!

EXPLODING FOOD HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN!

<-- Weiner Impossible

Every time I see it, the theme to Mission Impossible starts playing in my head.

I wonder when that Certis guy is going to donate. I mean, man, I see him posting all over the place, but he doesn't even have a key yet! For shame! And he's always talking like he owns the place!

I am just sad that I don't have my key yet. I'm not sure I can hold it much longer...

next year!

<- w00t. Time for relief.

I wouldn't want to unread that, it's way too funny.

I need my key quick, I gotta go!

Hooray!

Woo hoo! I'm all keyed up!

*looks at his watch*
Oh damn, now I know how much time I spend here.

BTW next year maybe access to the company pool and spa area might be cool.
Or access to the company retreat for some R&R.

Next year, I'll donate just after the first site update so as to ensure the maximum time between when my donation is received and when I get my watch.

Why? So I can give myself plenty of time to say "Look at my wrist! I have to go!"

(And if you don't get the joke, shame on you!)

Well...

OK people, stop donating. My name's on the list so the rest of you are just ruining my chances!

Add me to the list. I love my Wiener Bomb!

Y'know Certis, it probably wouldn't be TOO hard to make a program that let people pick their own icons and tracked which ones they'd "unlocked."

Note: This is where my idea gets stupid.

Then we could add more that people could unlock by doing special stuff on the forums! One for X number of posts in each forum (get grinding, folks!). One for making a Thread of the Week. One for sending in an audio e-mail for the podcast. One for gender bending in MMOs (wear it proudly!).

Oh, and then for a $5 donation you could get a CUSTOM one!

C'mon, work with me here!

Yay, finally got my key....

Donation and email sent! Bring on the jet!

It is actually a pleasure to donate to such a great online community. Certis and Elysium, thank you for all that you do to make this site stand head and shoulders above the rest.

I sooo want my watch, but it's not in the mail yet. Overseas postage and stuff I presume.

Yeah! I'm special now, too!

edit: So, wait a sec... If I say donate some more money later in the week, I'd get an upgrade?? Because I may want a gold watch!

No, you get one per drive. Multiples won't cut it!

*Ack*

Sending again Just In Case. I want my little widgit.

Remember guys (and folks PMing me) that we still have a LOT of tagging to do yet. Most donations happened in the first three days of the drive, and we're still not caught up.

Okay, whew. I was going to say, I just donated.

In case folks want some perspective, I believe I donated on day 2, and just received my key with this update.

Oh hell now I have a golden key and I'm all sucked in.

Forget the Dow, I'm investing in GWJ.
