GWJ Donation Drive Update 2: Return of the Updatening

If you're like me, you probably ask yourself the same thing when the GWJ Donation Drive user list is posted: Just who these crazy folks are who give pretend people on the internet real life currency? You wonder what makes them tick. My own field work suggests it's a lot of beer and gin. But I suspect it's also heart. They know that every single day there's someone at GWJ turning their busy mind to entertaining them. Or at the very least protecting them from the ravening zombies at the gate who want their sweet, sweet brains. By this I mean the internet itself.

And so we honor those who have donated already and reach out with our dusty bowler hats for a bit of spare ching-a-ling in exchange for a jaunty tune. We also offer fabulous prizes that you can learn more about here!

On with the list! Still more to add ...

Quite the list there.

If donations are being taken still the first full week of October, I'll throw $5 GWJ's way.

Please note, I still have a somewhat substantial backlog of names to plow through, so if you have donated in the last few days and don't see your name yet, please don't panic.

Oh well, no way I'm gonna win any prizes with this huge list of do-gooders!

Would a few days extend to the 22nd?

Perfect!

Less competition for the wonderful prizes.

FTFY

I should get around to this. I let the PayPal page time out today.

Remember that there's going to be a good portion of people who get more than one chance in the draw because they paid more!

Beer, gin and heart? Is Certis the internet equivalent of Captain Planet? Now we just have to wait for porn and lolcat to be able to summon him?

Which reminds me, my paycheck has arrived yesterday. Donation and mail have just been sent, I'll take that snazzy xbox slim thank you very much! Or does the Murder of Crows statue actually give you the power to control a murder of crows? In that case, I want that...

250 names and more to come? Cool! This thing is growing each year. Do you Overlords Of The Site do pie charts and graphs and stuff to analyze monthly growth and have stockholder meetings and file SEC reports?

What does the IRS think of this? Why is love a spark inside wistful eyes? What is game?

Fixed for in-jokes.

Done.

Don't you know that the first thing a person does when told not to panic is PANIC!?
WHERS"S MY NAME!!!?

see? I can't even type right when I panic!
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOGMogmogogmogmogggm

That's a lot of names.

Quite a proper list of names if I do say!

Be a real shame if sumpthin happened to it.

This is what happens when hackers get into your site and leak the list of subscribers.

Wait!?! It's not hackers? It's not leaked? Well, how's this ever going to make the front page on Engadget?

Just proud to contribute to a sight that has given me much amusement.

And some abuse.

But mostly amusement.

Stockholm syndrome.... you gotta love it!

...and DONE!

Donated! Whew, almost missed it!

I have it on good authority, that all of the people on the list who are not me want me to pass on that you can simply remove their names from the draw for the prizes.

Donated (and glad to do it)! Hooray for wiener bombs!!

Donated some days ago and sent the email. Take your time updating the icon, really.

I too donated:)

More than happy to contribute, you guys have earned it! I did notice, however, that Elysium has no forum icon...you gonna support the cause or are what!?
