Donation Drive 2013 - Final Day!

If this was the mid-90's I'd have a midi version of The Final Countdown playing in the background. Thanks to everyone for all their support this year! We're very close to reaching our special GWJ Jobs podcast stretch goal and we've made the second edition of the GWJ Magazine a reality!

From there it's just a hop, skip and a jump to the GWJ Radio play we're dying to do. Keep at it! If you want to be a hero and help us in this last push to our final stretch goal hit the Donation Page and Indiana Jones roll right under the rapidly closing cave mouth.

After the break you'll find a list of our donors. These are the people who keep the lights on and enable us to make sure this is the best damn site and community we can be. Even if you can't afford to contribute this year, take a moment to read the list and offer a silent fist pump to our supporters.

If you're not on the list and you donated before the last few days, drop Elysium a line so he can make sure you're in the database. Don't worry if you're not on here and you should be, we'll make sure everyone is accounted for.

How on earth did you miss it? There have been multiple front-page posts, a donate banner all over the place, and a PM from He-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed! Were you on a secret mission in a remote part of the world and only just returned? ;)

I missed it last year due to travel for work and jet lag. It is possible to not catch up on podcasts and not get to the site.

I am alarmed by the idea that one could live without a constant connection to GWJ. Surely, you must be some creature of prophesy.

more like heresy!

Glad you guys hit the 30k mark, so rattling the tin can in the faces of passers-by helped. :-p

I was very sad. I think I got to the site once that whole month, and being new did not know the drive would end so quickly.

Congrats!

Partially off-topic question: Who did the logo image that accompanies this post? I love it!

That's the Bombsfall art for this year!

Did you get mine?

Congrats on hitting the 30K mark!

It was only a few months ago that I found the podcast, and it has revolutionized my morning commutes every Wednesday since. I've discovered all sorts of games (board games and video!) that I would have easily missed had it not been for the show. I'm super excited to discover such a large community of awesome gamers on top of all of that.

Next year, when I haven't sunk the entirety of my personal wealth into producing a feature film, I'll happily donate much much more! Keep up the good work and THANK YOU!

If that happens, may I suggest a different name for it? "Gamers With Jobs Jobs podcast" is, to put it politely, a less than ideal name.

Personally, I'm more interested in the radio play, so here's to hoping you guys have a great final day!

You could call it Employees with Games.

Or something.

Jobbers Without Games

Workers Without Games

Gamers About Jobs (my fave)

Grinding the Day Job

GAJers sounds right.

If we're voting, I say Jobs with Gamers is best.

Job With Gamers: A Gamers With Jobs production. Rolls right off the tongue.

A profound exploration of the role of God and suffering in games, I assume.

There's a side of me that likes Gamers With Jobscast.

I know someone else mentioned Gamers With Jobs Board Meeting, since the weekly podcast is the Conference Call.

Just imagine how good JWGers will sound when pronounced at the next PAX East.

Both not bad.

I like the board meeting.

Yes sir yes sir three bags full.
I got a key

30k and change, nice!

So is there place to view a new updated list, or is that list being kept up to date?

That's just because you want to subvert it into a podcast about board games, I'm onto you

I'm guessing there will be a final list, as I have my new car, but I'm not on the list as yet

Final tally was 810 backers and $30,025. I'm sure we'll add a bit with late-arriving checks by mail. Amazing.

Holy moley, I sure am glad I pitched in those extra 25$ I hadn't initially planned on. So now it's a double win, I helped make Juilian write about pigeon sex, and I participated in the final push over 30k.

I love this site and you people so much. I'll echo ccesarano's sentiment on page two... GROUP HUG!!!

And I approve wholeheartedly of "JWGers". ^_^

I'm not on the list and also don't have new icon. But as I donated on the last day, I'm assuming it's just taking a while to work through all the emails.
