Donation Drive Update #1

It's time for our first update! To say we're crushed under an avalanche of well wishes and warm fuzzies would be an understatement. I've had the good fortune of meeting a lot of community members during my travels this year and it's still hard for me to get my head around what an amazing bunch you are.

There are a number of folks who have donated who didn't send in their forum name. You don't need to be registered on the site to donate, but you sure need to be if you want in on our awesome prize draw!

We're nearly caught up on all the users who have donated so far. If you sent something in before this past weekend you should be on the list. If you're not, be sure to let us know. More details on the donation drive, prizes and rules here. After the jump ... the good people who are helping us keep the lights on so far!

Just out of interest, what do donations pay for over the year?

Obviously, the cost of hosting the site, and audio equipment for the making of the podcast. What else is contained in 'keeping the lights on'?

Beard grooming products? Lobbyists? Hookers'n'blow?

I know that's how they pay for the trips to the game conventions and Elysium's beard. You couldn't imagine the maintenance cost of that magnificent mane!

I know, right? I'm assuming that he has a chin stylist on speed-dial.

So what's the new symbol this year? I will be donating Friday once I get paid.

Once again I have shaken down children and old ladies for their money, that I may lavish it upon this, my favourite online place. Not since the guy who staggered into my ER the other night have I been so enthused about an exploding weiner.

Wow, nice list so far!

Also: The plane, the plane!

Wait, wait, wait.... Come on now people! We've not even broken the post formatting!! We need more donators so we can blow this sucker wide open!

Good work so far, fellow GWJers!

Wow, somehow I almost missed the Donation Drive! I'm always glad to donate to such a great gaming community! Good job!

Last year brought in over 500 donors by the last week. Don't think we hit 600, though I'm not sure if anonymous donors were counted in the tally.

I still would like to know how I missed the donation drive the first year. The only thing I can think of is that it happened during our move, and I just flat out missed it. Forever cursed to be "one year behind" on the brand new bright and shiny.

Hey! That sounds like me with games too now that we have two kids....

I am impressed! A better statement cannot be made by the Goodjer community

*snikt*

Damn. Chained to the rad in the Executive Washroom...again.

Donation made.
As always, thanks for the great site and excellent podcast!

Quite a list already. That's great!

Just finished up some serious tagging. If you felt a tingle, now you know why.

I was about to dole out a rash of crap about not being on the list. I opened up Outlook to forward a copy of the email with my info .. when I found it .. in the Outbox. For some reason, Outlook decided it didn't need to send that particular message. Clicked on it, sent it again and away it went. Outlook has more gaming characteristics than some of the games I play.

Hooray! No site deserves it more than this one.
