    BG Forums Donations Drive 2012

    What the hell? Its 2012 already? 2011 just started!

    Anyway, its that time again. 2011 was a banner year for BG forums, as in we banned a ton of people, got rid of some trash, made up reasons to get rid of others we didnt like, and generally caused a ton of mayhem. Servers held up fine until about midway through the year when we started getting overloaded. Many of you might remember these hours of downtime, one was almost close to a day long. After having to pick a fight with our host, we got our new machines and migrated over to them in short order.

    The forums have maintained a massive precense, growing again to around 1200ish users on at any given moment, rarely dropping below 1000 users, even in the middle of the night. With BG-Wiki taking off like crazy and the random image thread giving birth to the BG Bucket and the new chat that most of you forget is there, its been a huge jump for us.

    Our latest get rich quick scheme didnt work either. Kryes insistence that people would pay a handsome reward to get him unbanned didnt work at all so once again we look to you, mighty forum readers of BG to help us with our goal.

    Same as previous years, our goal is 3000, and as always we will document everything so you know that we are buying the best quality blackjack and hookers that can be ordered on the internets.

    I will, once they come in, post the information about the awesome donation prizes that people send in for you to have on the raffle. Please contact me if you have any donations, 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.

    2011 saw the rebirth of the new FFXIV project 2.0, heralded by the mighty Yoshi-P, who on SEs dime flew me and Ragns out for a knock down drag out interview in which he answered every question we had plus a bunch more via email. Keep on rockin SE, show us what you can do with this XIV stuff.

    Because of PayPal QQing, we have to use one of their buttons, sorry about that, it doesnt give you a lot of leeway with custom amounts, but we set it in common amounts.

    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.

    THUS, BY THE HERALD OF HERALDING!

    RaffleCopter IV: The Last Year Before People Stop With That Mayan Talk



    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?

    Q: I used to be a BG server then I took an arrow to the knee.
    A: Oh, havent heard that before, fantastic.

    Q: Pony?
    A: No.

    Q: Seriously, how much money to get nudes of Isla.
    A: What the fuck is wrong with you, she's married.
    srsly though she is hot as hell.

    Dole Edit:
    Hello, Blue Gartr! This is your friendly neighborhood horse god wanting YOU(not you aurara!) To donate your unwanted steam games to the donation drive!
    >BUT VANDOLE WHAT DO?
    It's simple, add me on steam or simply use my steam URL to gift the prizes. http://steamcommunity.com/id/vandole/
    >VANDOLE I GAVE YOU SOME DLC FOR THE TRAIN GAME AM I STILL GETTING A CUSTOM TITLE?
    Well timmy, since what you gave me was valued over $5 USD you ARE getting a custom title, sir! Also, if the game is worth $50 or more, you get a free ban ticket! This has the same rules as the monetary donations, but we would much prefer a monetary donation. This is the communities gift to YOU! Also, if you add me on steam and I message you and your name is Dickgirl124 DO NOT be surprised when I say "who the fuck are you?" instead of Hi Isladar!

    *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.

    I never got my kraken club from last year. Also, after payday, you can expect the usual lump sum from me.

    made up reasons to get rid of others we didnt like
    Precisely, but who is to say you won't just make up another reason later to get rid of me if I donate and un-ban myself (unless I can't lol).

    Is it possible to link a prepaid credit card to Paypal? If so I'll be donating 20 bucks as soon as it's activated.

    Chipped in $10. I'd donate more, but I'm currently buying an engagement ring that is making me very poor this year, heh.

    Here's to another year

    You'll shutup and take my money come Friday, maybe at the end of the month depending on how the turn-of-the-year fuckery goes with my insurance.
