Donation Drive 2011 Update #2

We are fewer than 10 days out from the end of the 2011 Donation Drive, and as always we are impossibly grateful at the outpouring of support. I particularly would like to thank all of you who passed along a kind word or personal note; it's made an enjoyable task of managing the drive all that much better. While I've only been able to reply to a few of you, please know I sincerely appreciate the notes.

Along with an updated list of donors -- just under 410 supporters so far -- I'd like to go ahead and thank the team at Wizards of the Coast for adding on to our already pretty cool prize pool for the donation drive. They are sending along a bundle of Magic the Gathering 2012 intro packs and boosters for our giveaway. Add that to a prize pool that already includes some phenomenal artwork from our friends at Irrational Games, a Steam shopping spree, a custom forum icon and of course a console, video card and portable system of your choice.

I remain enthusiastic that we can break 2010's donation drive results, which saw 580 donors, and of course there is always that mythical 600 donor barrier looming just within striking distance. To support the site, help us reach our goal and just join the cool kids in general, see this post. But, for now I really just want to thank all of you who have donated to date.

Thanks go out to ...

Ah, I had the knob on the other side.

Is this a weird take on finger -> butt?

Over here it's 15:30!

It's 1530 for people who know how to use military time.

Hmm, let us see what icon I've obtained.

As a consummate lurker, who post so infrequently as to forget his user name, password and whether he ever signed up in the first place, I hope I have a stealthy icon....

The new golden icon makes it all worth it!

Really!

I'm serious here. I've been looking forward to the wiener bomb for years now. At least a couple.

Unless it's morning.

Yay! I remembered to donate again this year!

I'm on a boat!

Well, nobody except GWJ'ers.

Don't you ever forget!

I'm totally getting a golden stethoscope if I win.

Come on, this is gamers with jobs, that means we're mostly middle-aged and have just idea about doctor's visits...

You're all wrong. The watch clearly reads "Scotch O'Clock".

Hard to argue with that.

Golden speculum, here I come!

Trust me, those aren't fun for anyone. Well, maybe some folks with very specific kinks, but otherwise, no.

I thought his kinks were general and wide-ranging.

Good thing I can't win, or I'd request a golden red pen.

You should request the golden arm.

I'd probably shatter that one, too.

Hey Mr. Sands - did you forget to update my icon!

Put down that Corona, sir!

I donated on 9/7 and am not listed. I want to make sure I'll be in for the prize drawing!
