GWJ Donation Drive 2013 Update - Stretch Goal Reached!

GWJKate

With 10 days to go we've hit our first stretch goal! Soon all of the podcast spoiler sections and Graham Rowat readings will be hosted in one convenient space separate from the main shows. Thanks everyone for your support! We're very close to our next stretch goal of commissioning all new GWJ mascots to feature on the new site design. After that, a new edition of the GWJ magazine.

Donating can also get you some amazing art, Infinite Lives comics, a special edition GWJ compilation of past articles with all new commentary from the author and more. Hit the Donation page for all the details.

After the jump a (not quite complete) list of all our donors so far. If you've donated in the first couple weeks of the drive and your forum name is not on this list make sure touch base with Sean "Elysium" Sands with your particulars. Detail on the donation page.

Awesome! And I know there are some slackers who will wait until the last moment to donate.

Woo Hoo first stretch goal down! Huzzah!
<------
Look at my shiny new key! Look. At. It. Do it now!

(Yeah yeah, I know you Handcuff, Golden Parachute and Fortress types are rolling your eyes, but the First Time is exciting, no?)

We're very close to our next stretch goal of commissioning all new GWJ mascots to feature on the new site design.

Really looking forward to this.

Woo!

Hey I resemble that remark!

Yay! I love this community. I hope we hit more of the stretch goals of 22,500 and 27,500. The jobs podcast could be fun. And congrats on the key Abu5217. I know how exciting it can be to get your key as I just got mine last year.

Hey, how much do you have to donate to get on the list twice like Mesa?

That's it, I've had it. Changing my name to *garion333*

FTFM

Spoiler:

Minor nitpick, I admit, but everyone's CamelCase name seems to be spelled correctly, except mine.

So glad GWJ hit the first stretch goal!!! Absolutely looking forward to the podcast spoiler sections and Graham Rowat readings!!!!
Really hope the next stretch goal gets hit, as I'd really like to see new GWJ mascots. Kinda contemplating double dipping to help things move along.
And yes, Abu, getting the key is totally exciting! I kinda miss mine, but I'm aiming for the cube (yup, you guys are stuck with me for a while).

I don't know what you're talking about, MeAtMaN...

EDIT: No, this is not a sly way of saying I'm amazing. I thought everyone knew that already.

Pretty sure I gave you guys money. Should be a certain amount from Nathan Low in PayPal. Please add me to the list if you can find the email.

Thanks!

When did the drive start? I'm not sure if it was the first couple of weeks but I donated on the 25th. Just wondering if I have to shoot a follow up email.

Same here. I'm just now able to finally put some of my chump change in. But there was no way I wasn't going to contribute something this year.

Hope to see another magazine next year. It was really great reading volume one.

Ooh, first time I get to say this, but.. I donated and am not listed

We're not slacking, we're just building the suspense!

Yeah, that's the ticket, building suspense. I totally didn't forget about the donation drive until I heard about it on the podcast yesterday, nope not at all...

Me too.

They got my money though, that's all that really matters.

You have to contribute the same double secret amount like brouhaha also did.

We can be rather prickly at times can't we.

I had this feeling that a Donation Drive was ongoing, sure enough coming to the homepage, there it was... I didn't get to donate last year so I'm happy to be in time to contribute for 2013/2014
My name is on the list, huzzah! \o/
Thanks for the great community and podcast!

GOLDEN WANG HERE I COME

8-4 Bumped! Let's see if we can hit the next stretch goal with the next update

Same here; I donated back at the start of the drive, and haven't seen my name up yet, despite sending the Paypal email. I imagine the guys are backlogged.

That, or there's a cabal plotting against us, tboon.

I vote cabal.

Donated once again. Hopefully I'll see my name on the next list of updates.

Once again I'll say this is a fantastic site with a great community, so I'm happy to donate a little something every year to help keep it going. Great job everyone.

Vroom Vroom.
