The 2012 GWJ Donation Drive Is Live!

It is once again time to open the site up for donations! In case you haven't been around for one of these before, the GWJ donation drive is a one month event in which we ask the community to kick in and help support the site. It keeps us lean, mean and free of annoying ads! As Sean mentioned in his post last week, this year will be different as we're setting aside the raffle in favor of a more Kickstarter-esque system that give everyone some cool stuff and lays out some of our hopes and dreams for the coming year.

For all the info, hit the donation drive page. Together we can continue building this community in a strong, positive direction!

Yup, it's not a big deal if you want to keep your icon. The one thing we might not be able to do is track if you skip an icon, so if you hold on the WB for a couple of years having donated, and then eventually want to move on, you'll just move to the next icon, not all the way up to wherever you might have otherwise been.

Vroom Vroom. For now..

Donated for the first time $25. So excited for another year of great podcasts and forum threads!

Glad to be in a position to contribute more this year. I've also become obsessed with the donation tracker. Go, go, go!

Be careful man. I may end up asking you to do a dramatic reading about SparklePonies.

The thought came to mind. Glad you said it first.

Edit: Vroom!

As do I. See, here's the problem; I now have the ultimate icon. Do I actually want to give GWJ any more money in the future, because I'll lose my weinerbomb-ness?

Tough one.

Ah, but when you make your donation, you can simply request to retain your current icon, and our benevolent overlords will make it so. Problem solved!

Edit: Damn you Stengah! Well at least I can say I've been Tannhausered now. Is there a prize for that?

Stangah's finger -> Your butt??

True, but I'm not quite as... Attached to the weiner bomb as some folks are, so I have no problem moving on from it when the time comes. Still, it will be a good year.

I donated but it's a little less than last year . My wallet have been hemorrhaging money this quarter . I told my wife the 130$ on steam was a once a year event but I spend more money since then .

Done, a VERY worthy cause!
Thanks for the hard work you all put in.

Still waiting for my Company Yacht key.
No worries since the water's rough but I want to take the girls out for a ride (on my boat).

I may lurk, but I'm happy to contribute to all the great stuff on the site and the podcasts. Keep up the good work! Happy to donate again this year.

Edit - though it seems I should have posted last year to test out my cool icon...ah well, I'll get the upgrade this year:)

Well, that's what the $200 tier is for. Will use that one in a future donation drive to change my icon

I shall wear my four-year car icon like a badge of honor. Though I have no idea what kind of car that is. A hearse?

I only regret I did not discover the site/podcast sooner.

That's be one tiny coffin. 50's era Oldsmobile is my guess.

You fools! My clever ruse of supporting the site, listening to all the shows, and greatly enjoying everything that comes from being part of such a great community for the last 3 years in order to gain the coveted wiener bomb has finally paid off!

Spoiler:

*Maniacal Laugh*

Finally got around to donating. Enjoy the green.

Donation made. I don't get around to playing many games these days but I still enjoying lurking around the forums here.

First time donor. Keep up the great work with the podcast and site! As a parent of small kids, I love the discussions about gaming and parenting.

Finally! I've been here long enough to attain the Wiener Bomb :D! Next personal achievement unlockes at Choose Your Tag...
I don't mind giving to a community that I visit nearly everyday. Always meeting awesome people here and more through the occasional Slap & Tickle. A superb place to discuss/design/discover games/movies/books and everything else.
I raise my glass to you GWJ!

Can we make one of the stretch goals be that the founders of our illustrious community replicate this scene?

Primary goal hit. Still 20(!) days to go.

Congrats all!

Congrats on crossing 15K!

I want to be on top.

No, wait. Bottom.

No, wait. Top.

No, wait ... I'm not doing that.

Finally clicked all the buttons that moved my money over to Gamers With Jobs.

Keep doing what you're doing!

What if there were a pillow in the middle?

The bigger the cushion, the better the pushin'

Weiner bomb... hooray!

Now I have to decide next year whether to keep it or not after I donate.

Did I have a boat before? I think I had a boat before.

A wild icon appears!

Edit: And again!

Does that mean there's a secret moon icon we can get if we max out our bank account, collect every treasure, then beat the game?

$20k! DING DING DING!

Came here to say congrats on passing $20k!
