Donation Drive 2011 Update

With a week under our belt in the 2011 donation drive, the first thing I have to say is: Thank You! As always you guys prove that a community supported website, even on a relatively small scale as ours, is not only viable but can be successful. As is true every year we need your support, and you guys come through every time.

To date we are closing in on 200 donors, and you can find that list of higher-order human beings after the bump. Last year we came within a breath of breaking 600 total donors, and though we are a little behind against our 2010 pace, I still think we'll take a good long run at breaking that 600 ceiling. Whether you donate $5 or $100, know that your contribution goes to continuing to provide the podcast, the front page content, the community support/events and just keeping the lights on. Ok, before I call all NPR on this and start offering tote bags, let's get back to more important matters like making sure those who've donated get the credit they so richly deserve.

Now, please be aware that this is the first year that I'm handling all of the clerical duties, including fielding e-mails, sorting donations and making sure that icons get handed out properly. That almost certainly means that there will be at least a few people who have donated and are not listed. Panic not! If you have donated but are not listed below or have not received your new icon, please send me an e-mail ([email protected]) or PM with the name you donated under, the amount donated and your forum name. I highlight that part because people sometimes forget.

If you have not donated and would like to please follow the paypal link on the sidebar and read this for all the information you need: http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/1...

Now, to thank those who've donated so far and should have their new or updated icons (current as of 11:00 cst today)

Thank you to:

If 'we' break 700 donations this year, I will double triple down.

Just for the record, I would tote so much stuff in a GWJ tote bag. An unreal amount of toting would occur.

Woo, I'm on the list!

EDIT: only posted to make it 3 cars in a row and to see that I got rid of my weiner bomb before it exploded. I waited til the last minute last year and moved on as quickly as possible this year. By the way, what is the fuse length on a standard issue weiner bomb?

C-c-combo breaker!

Weiner bombs ftw!

I will miss my ship :(.

Ooh a tote bag!

The swag link is broken. I was going to see if there already was a tote bag.

Some days you just can't get rid of a Wiener bomb!

Your welcome! Wish I could donate more this year...

I loves me new Wiener Bomb!

In the interest of full disclosure I must make it known that I am only posting here to see what my new icon looks like.

Yeah, I also want to see the new icon.

EDIT: Shiny!

Happy I was able to donate this year!

New icon! Woo hoo!

Hmm. Haven't seen one of those yet.

I was just telling Clover that a GWJ flask would probably sell.

Haha! I love the new icon.

Not mine, but I believe Polq's is the newest one. Am I wrong?

Yep.. looks like this year we get a golden parachute.

Weiner Bomb is the new black.

How did I miss this? Edit: All done. Donated.

Just donated! Yay!!!

Sad to say circumstances won't allow me to contribute this year. On the plus side that's another year with the weiner bomb.

Shazam! Donated.

Well, that would be okay. I don't even know what's after ships. It might be a spaceship! Or a golden c*ckring! Let's hope for a spaceship.

I think we should get a golden Thunderhammer as the next one.

By the way how do these icons get picked? Do the Sean/Shawns get together for a sit-down and go over the most silliest?

Is the golden parachute an indictment of mega US corporations and their executives and CEOs getting nice financial send offs? Is this a hint that the Seans/Shawns are spending TOO much on hookers and blow as previously mentioned by Julian Rabbit Murdoch?
