Cool So what do you get for donating?

Hey guys. Been following multiple threads where people are complaining, etc.

I am not looking to bring complaints or what mods can do better, etc.

But what's in it for being a site contributor?

Any special perks, etc.?

Other sites give you a little "site contributor" line underneath your forum name, etc. I think this is good for a number of reasons, among them, it helps me reign myself in.

For instance on another site I am actively involved in, you get the site contributor thingy and access to ShoutBox (chat) and the ability to view the site without a top ad, and a link for post of the day, etc.

In the past year and a half I have donated $200 to the site.

I dropped this site $10 today, I will do more once I decide to stick around; but after donating today I followed a certain other thread that makes me question somethings. But whatever.

I just thought now that people are discussing the site mission, etc, perhaps we could consider donor perks, etc.

p.s. I am from Minnesota (there are lots of us here) and I sometimes post funny pictures of myself which screws up bandwidth.

p.p.s. Sorry

In the time of Photobucket, etc, I have no need for server space.

Plus there were complaints that threads that went on for 7 pages caused the server to run slow or have us run out of bandwidth at the end of the month. I would think they WOULD rather not give away valuable server space.

$20 Upload access to the gallery. Try to provide free items like the vinyls and business cards. Most money goes to the server, and the event banner.

Besides that haven't really set anything up, but I'm open to suggestions.

Are you serious? NO! How is this bull shit? COMPLETELY legitimate, no ulterior motives.

I am just saying things like "site contributor" are FREE, while giving people server space DOES INDEED take bandwidth, etc (don't know the proper terms).

Chill dude, I am not attacking you.

Your $10 is refunded. I'd rather not take money from you. Just enjoy the free forum.
