    BG Forums Donations Drive 2011

    Oh hey, look at the time, its about to be 2011, and while the world will end soon and we will race away in the arms of John Cusack, we still have trolling to do for another year.

    Forums have maintained a steady pace of insanity over the year, breaking our record, the birth of final fantasy 14, the painful death of final fantasy 14, and the bringing back to life with frantic patching of final fantasy 14, the death of the dev team, the brand new final fantasy 14 dev team! Its been a rough year for SE in general, but they keep going and hopefully will learn from the mistakes.

    Money is tight as always, so we understand if you cant donate, in fact, if you cant afford it, save your money. Food and rent is more important than trolling.

    This year we will need the same amount as last, approx. 2500 USD. And just as before we will document everyones donations so there will be no question that your money is going to fund this server. This year we also hope to have more raffle donations than the previous years and weve been given a few already.

    As I said, the immediate goal is 2500.00, the extended goal for server extras and emergencies is 4000.00. Being as the second number is quite large were going to aim for the first and just go with the flow. So without further delay I give you....

    RaffleCopter III: Heralding the Raffpocolypse

    ----

    You can IM me at SonomaaKitty or send me an email at Sonomaa @ gmail.com with any questions, or PM me on the forums. We will grant custom titles for all donations over five dollars.

    The paypal system is different this year, we are using set amount buttons. I know thats not ideal for some people, but we actually lost a little bit of money when people donated pennies for giggles. So please use the buttons, if you need to donate something bigger, contact Sonomaa directly on the forums and Ill work it out or just push the button multiple times.

    Coming soon, a cool bar showing our donation amount!

    Thank you for the continued support!

    FAQ:
    Q: Is there a min amount to donate to get in the raffle?
    A: You must donate at least 5 dollars to get in the raffle.

    Q: What other cool shit can I get for donating?
    A: At least five dollars gets you a custom title of your choice, twenty dollars gets you a ban credit (A ban credit lets you remove most bans from your account, some restrictions apply). Fifty dollars lets you pick a spam forum flavor of the month. Fifty dollars also lets you ban a non-staff member from the forums for 7 days. You must pick your bonus when you make your donation by sending me a PM once youve made it. Im sorry but I cant go through a few months worth of notes because you forgot you made a donation.

    Q: Can I get a drawn avatar if I donate more?
    A: Ill talk to some people.
    (artists, give me a buzz, great way to show off your talent!)

    Q: Why does Ragns hate spiders so much?
    A: Spiders attacked Ragns village when he was just a small server operator, wiping it all out. These giant spiders let loose a decade long imprisonment, forcing Ragn to administrate from 56k speeds. Thus, once rescued by me and Nikkei and brought into the loving arms of the BlueGartr server, he has been unable to stave off the fear associated with these ten food tall bone, sinew, metal, and stone machines we call 'spiders'.

    Q: u?
    A: no u.

    Q: Whats the chance your going to head to vegas for blackjack and hookers.
    A: Why would we need blackjack if we had hookers?

    *Terms and restrictions apply. Not valid in Hawaii, Alaska, or Quebec, because for whatever reason no fucking contest/giveaway/prize thing ever is valid in Quebec. I mean what the fuck. I fucking love poutine. Bastards have to be French Canadian in the first place, but they're like perma-banned from getting a fucking send-away prize from a box of Cap'n Crunch. Or should I say, MON CAPITAINE CRUNCHAY. Let's have a moment of silence. If you pony up the entire amount (and we're talking the full 5k here, in small, unmarked bills), you will be eligible for a SPECIAL PRIZE. Proof of aforementioned ponying up must be supplied in the form of a picture of said ponier rolling around in money ala Indecent Proposal. Upon confirmation of receipt and analysis of proof the ponier will be entitled to a digital photograph of a regular user of IAS. Choice of who said user will be will be the decision of the governing body of ISLAREICH CORP, GmbH, LLC., and is non-negotiable and will most likely be Callisto doing a stupid face, at which point you'll have spent 5k on a photograph of the skinniest, whitest motherfucker ever. But just in the interest of facilitating ponyage, yes, Virginia, on a scale of 1 to UNLIKELY there could be a chance of settling the age-old question, iykwim. ISLAREICH CORP, GmbH, LLC., is not in anyway responsible for any inferences drawn by the use of 'iykwim' or any of its variants. For external use only. Please consult BG medical to find out if BEING A MAN is right for you. Allow 6 - 8 weeks for delivery. Tiny tiny text is fucking awesome.

    Donating $10 again like last year. It's not much, but I figure the odds of at least 249 others pitching in $10 are very good if last year's drive was anything to go by.

    Title: Resident Raccoon
    (was too lazy to request one last year >.> )


    How are you guys going to track the donators this year btw? There wasn't a comment box like last time where we could post our BG names.
