    BG Forums Donation Drive 2016!

    Presenting! BG RaffleCopter VII: The HD Demake



    We arent skipping this year obviously. Our goals remain the same though, expand the forums as needed and work on making them better for everyone who browses. Doing that required some server tweaks, which you guys will remember in our hiccups in early 2015 but weve gotten things working smoothly now and our transition to the amazon servers have been solid.

    Going there presented more costs as the startup was a little crazy for figuring out all the different levels of optimization but now we are going smooth and costs have stabilized. We also made a huge switch to https, which was a pain in the ass because it broke our bucket BB code generator but were getting there. FFXIV continues to be a solid amount of traffic and very good for the forums, FFXI, even in its last days, continues to keep lots of traffic, especially the wiki.

    Our initial goal is 3k but we are open to expanding to 5k if the donations come in smoothly. As always BG Golde is still the big ticket item and now a special tier called BG Platinum. Last year we had some people who wanted to buy Golde for themselves and a friend, so thats what BG Platinum is. Just a fun little thing for you and a friend to show your support.
    Current BG Golde members will be cycled back to standard accounts. As always donations are completely optional. We rely on your support but we absolutely do not require it.

    If you have stuff youd like to donate to the drive, just send me a PM, Ill get the items then ship them to the winners!

    Thank you again for being awesome.





    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.

    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 fighting with people on the internet.

    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)
    40 dollars gets you an upgraded custom title, complete with your choice of mini second avatar or colored or moving flavor text, and one for a friend too!
    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.
    150 bucks lets you ban a non-staff member from the forum for a whole damn month. You must pick your bonus when you make your donation by sending me a PM once you've made it. I'm sorry but I can't go through a few months worth of notes because you forgot you made a donation.
    250 dollars gets you BG GOLD where your NAME is gold and you can change your title as much as you want for a year, as well as change other peoples standard non-custom titles (within reason) to custom ones of your choosing.
    500 is BG Platimum, its Golde for you and a friend. Also Zetanio will give you a shout out on twitter
    BG Platimum purchases can also be redeemed for an FFRK subforum or a Fighting Game subforum
    1k lets you nuke the politics forum, forever. Must be donated all at once.
    2500 will let you ban ragns from standard viewing of the forums for 6 months (he will remain to maintain the back end but wont be allowed to view) Must be donated all at once.

    Q: Can I get a drawn avatar or other awesome crafts and shit 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: Hate is not the right word, ragns just doesnt like spiders.

    Q: Whats the chance your going to head to vegas for blackjack and hookers.
    A: Having gone to vegas for fanfest I can assure you that 5k is not nearly enough for blackjack and hookers, maybe hamburgers and cheap booze.

    Q: What happened to Isladar?
    A: She is a hologram that instructs us from her space station.

    Q: Whats with all the different mod colors now?
    A: BG Staff is still blue, BG Content is green, BG Tech is orange. BG Zetanio is black.

    At the start of this Rafflecopter we have cycled out all previous BG GOLD members, except Woozie and hey, who are forever Golden.

    *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. Isladar was cool, then she started killing everyone, and it was kinda awesome, then it wasnt.

    Quick question, if one donates items to the raffle, how does that translate on the scale of donations?

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Is there a way to check and see how many ban credits we have from previous donations?
