Donation Drive Update #4: OK, Start Panicking

As of a couple hours ago, we are now caught up on applying tags to our generous donors. We can't thank you guys enough for your support! The drive will continue until September 30th, which is when we'll pull the Paypal link down again until next year rolls around. If you've been procrastinating, there's no time like the present!

If you've donated and you're not on the list, email [email protected] your paypal email, name and your forum ID post haste! We want to make sure everyone gets into the big draw.

Read on for the full donor list. Bask in the love of all this awesome community support.

I'm back in the saddle again! I'm baack!

Why take down the paypal link? You may not be having a real donation drive behind it afterwards, but you're just letting people who can't spare the cash right now completely forget about donating for another year. Especially without ads on the site, even a random $5 here or there might go a long way.

Yay, I'm on the list. I'm a member! 8D

Woot! I'm on the list!

Leaving the paypal link up could make the site look significantly less classy to first time users. Could give the impression that the good folks running the site are panhandling.

This has always been site philosophy. Besides, we like having the donations be an event, a thing with some pomp to it. I can pretty firmly say that having the link up all year is something we're highly unlikely to consider.

Just a note: I may not be able to respond to every email, but I promise. I am following up with them.

Any longer and I would have gone in my pants!

Hey! Finally. Sweeet.

Classy? We've got a thread on Mex getting a hooker. You can't buy class like that! Well okay technically you can, but you need to watch out for the po-po.

Ok I am officially panicking now ..... ahhhhhhhhhhhh omg I am not on the list .....what should I do... you will all pay for this insult.... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ok Ill email elysium *sigh*

What's the over/under on how long it takes for this to get sigged?

Damn you Legion! I was this close to being top of the list.

He didn't just get a hooker this time, though, he dated one.

Hey, hookers need love too.

So many donors!

Hear me, heartless GWJ masters! You have crushed my dreams of winning a console with cold, unfeeling statistical improbability. I weep bitter tears.

Sir, the possibility of winning the grand prize is approximately 316 to one (not taking into account the extra entries people get for donating more.

Holy mother of GLaDOS..
That's one long list..

You guys are going to need a separate Donation Drive Database Server next year if this continues

Never tell me the odds.

First time flashy icon test!

*edit*

zomg key.

Yay, I'm on the list now! And I get a shiny key to the washrooms. If you will excuse me...

*sniff* I'm not on the list...

Are we going to get a rough estimate on how much was donated? I'm really curious.

For everyone asking, we don't talk about the total donated. It's a decision we made way back when we ran the first drive. We prefer to keep the focus on the people supporting the site and helping us keep it going.
