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:

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 got the golden c*ckring.

Close enough.

I'm only doing this for the forum icon...

Wow, Breadmanben, you must be like the highest ranked coffee grinder on the site. Senior Executive Coffee Grinder. You'll make intern by 2015!

In my mind that's what yours will always be.

with that one you can share with a buddy!

But...but...I donated! Oh it was in American dollars. Forgot those aren't worth anything anymore.

Hahaa! Finally, my Moby Dick reference has its golden counterpart. Or close enough. Now all we need is the next new icon to be a Miranda-class starship and I can stop there when I get to it in a few years.

The golden parachute works from a business angle, but I also like to think you had Just Cause 2 in mind.

I do find it funny that we get the Golden Parachute the year after the Golden Handcuffs.

It's nice that we talk about c-suite contract fluffers, but I think next year ought to be a golden dead end, or golden cubical wall.

As long as our balls don't touch I think we're fine!

Nothing wrong with a little ball touching...

You shaved?

I truly, truly regret the path I took this thread.

Well I donated, sent a PM , then sent an Email and nothing changed unless a key is for second timers (I thought it was a watch) . I always get the order wrong :lol:. Maybe I should write a longer email without numbers and symbols.

Depending on when you sent the email, they might not have done another batch of icon updates yet. Wait for the next update, and if you're not listed, then's the time to start panicking.

I will be doing the next round of donation drive processing today. Expect new icons sometime this afternoon or evening.

Finally donated. Damn you euro for being at the lowest point in 6 months!

There are people that let their balls stay hairy? I'm not sharing a c*ck ring with those types.

You wouldn't believe the places people grow hair! Some of them even have hairy faces!

Just did another big batch. _Most_ people who have donated and sent me the requisite e-mails should have their updated icons.

This is me putting this thread back on track.

Awesome, I've been keyed!

Happy Happy , Joy Joy! I got my watch!

C...c...c...c...Combo-Breaker!

Donated.

An unreal amount of toting would occur.

Oh yeah. Yoreel is right.

Donated (and hoping against hope for a tote bag).

I guess I'm ineligible for a quantum-state tote bag, but I donated anyway because I love GWJ.

Is the Donation Drive still how you get entry into the give away? From what I remember from the podcast it sounded like the were still going to be connected even though they take place in different months.

I have donated some of my Canadian monies to your cause. I had $20 Canadian in my Paypal account and then I transferred $12 USD to GWJ. My Paypal account then said:

You've got $12.21 CDN left in your account.

Did I make money? Donating rules!

Thurgrim, for reasons I can not possibly explain you didn't get updated properly. You should be all taken care of now.

Donating for the third year in a row, and I've upped the amount because you Americans seem to be having a tough time of it lately.

Yes, I know some of you call yourself Canadians, but you're not fooling me. I know there's no such place as Canadia.

Big hugs, keep it up.

edit: Damn, that's my username? Well, crap.

You found us out. Damn. Quick put the props back up and make Michigan look like Canadia again. Alternatively we'll move to Seattle and call it Vancouver. Again.
