Title: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 04:26:26 PM
Ok. Here's the deal. I've been paying $180 a month to keep this server. It fucking blows. We can get a new server for FIVE YEARS for $4,199.40 $4,252.70 (forgot taxes and fees).

As in we won't need a donation drive for FIVE YEARS.

YES, FIVE.

FIVE.

HOLY SHIT FIVE.

Here are the tiers:

$50: Nothing

$100: Pick your own title. We don't believe in inflation.

$250: I pick your title. I will work as hard as I did before. If you don't like what I gave you the first time, now is your chance to get a new one.

$500: Ban someone from politics for 3 months. (NO STAFF)

$1000: Unban a user. No one is off limits. If they get banned again you don't get a refund.

$2500: Ban someone from politics forever. (or until they pay to unban themselves at the next drive - hopefully in five years.) (NO STAFF)

$xxx (at least $100): Pick your number. Message me with what you think your amount is worth. We will negotiate based on what you're willing to donate. You may make awkwardly strange requests.

This is not a joke. This is what pay to play means.

DONATE HERE (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=9272671)

There is no soft goal. I want this fucker paid for. Also, we want to upgrade to the newest version of SMF and kill Wordpress and just do articles in the forums with upgraded forum tech. So forums might look a hair different for a while.

Post by: ezrast on February 16, 2017, 07:03:00 PM
I'm curious what services add up to that $180? It's higher than I'd expect for a couple modest PHP apps and a database but I assume there's more going on that I haven't thought of.

Anyway, I'll throw 100 bucks into a pool to unban WUA. :why_so_serious:


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 07:24:00 PM
Old server, previous pricing, new server is the same and much fucking cheaper. Remember, the last drive was two years and four months ago.

Edit: hmmmmm i guess if people want to pool donations to unban someone I can allow that.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: Chimpy on February 16, 2017, 07:28:45 PM
Can we pool donations TO ban someone?

Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 07:44:23 PM
Can we pool donations TO ban someone?

Hmm.

You can split in in half. So $1250 a person.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 07:47:18 PM
5.6% of the way there!

(When you make a donation for a specific tier, please message me and tell me) (thx).


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 08:06:50 PM
Note: If you put in between $100 and $250, you still get to pick your own title. These numbers are just baselines. Also, you do NOT have to give, say, $249 to not have me grief title you, just don't tell me who you are and I'll never notice. We got a lot of $49 and $99 donations last time. It was silly.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 08:09:18 PM
9.7% of the way there!

I'm only going to do these at 10% marks now.

Why not start a donation drive to donate money to ban someone in the donation drive?  Erp.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 08:26:25 PM
If Hillary had won, I would have had an option to shut down the politics forum.

But honestly, discourse is too important.

On the banning option - I mostly just want to see who hates someone so much they'll throw $2500 at them to make them go away.

I'm shocked someone hasn't put in $1k to unban Angry Bob - though given the attitude of the rest of the staff that unbanning might be a waste of money.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: HaemishM on February 16, 2017, 09:06:28 PM
Who the fuck would hate the rest of us enough to unban angry.bob?


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: schild on February 16, 2017, 09:08:30 PM
I never wanted him banned, well, not as much as others. But much like Magic cards override the core rules, the donation drive overrides our rules.

WUA would certainly be the more fun unbanning.


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: Chimpy on February 16, 2017, 09:23:04 PM
Yeah, as nuts as WUA was, some of his shit was actually kinda entertaining.

What are the mechanics of picking your own title at the 100 dollar level?  Throw in the dough and let you know what you want it to be in the special instructions?


Title: Re: DONATION DRIVE 2017: PAY TO PLAY
Post by: Strazos on February 17, 2017, 03:57:40 AM
Are the reward tiers cumulative?

I wonder if either he or WUA would even post again were they to be unbanned. SB ego is huge but he's got to have found a trolling home by now. WUA probably lost interest a while ago.

ed: Google is evil. Never Google people from the internet. SB moved to Columbus to run an online M:TG store. That's a bit close.

Just message me the title you want.

I want to say no. But it depends how high you're going?

Merusk, I plan to email anyone that gets unbanned.  :grin:

I might have to see about swinging a donation to get a title this year.  Maybe.  No promises.

He doesnt. But why would anyne pay to unban him? He wont post. Hes a terrified mutant with the mind of a toddler.

I'll throw in $50. Would be more, but my parent's 50th next month is looking like its going to cost me a fortune.

My $50 is to be pooled towards unbanning either WUA or Angry.Bob, whoever gets closer.

We currently at: $952.

This is 22.xx% of the way there.

Yes, that basically means we have a year paid for. I'd really like to knock out five years and not have to pay for a server again until we have a sane government. Let's get there. Please. Pretty please?

Honestly, it's going to stop at whatever set of years we hit when I'm bored with keeping the drive open.

Welp, instead of donating, I've decided to give $800 to my mechanic, because apparently radiators aren't supposed to have holes in them.  That would explain why the temp gauge kept shooting into the red zone whenever I was stopped for more than a few seconds at a time.

Sorry, Schild.  I'm going to have to keep being a filthy leech for a while longer.

After a late donation today, it looks like we ended at 3 years and 3ish months. I have no way to add 3ish months so uh

I guess that money will just sit there. Or I'll buy software for the server or something, I don't know, it's not enough for me to care.

I'm probably gonna buy this in the next few days.

It could take a bit to go active though as we're FINALLY going to update SMF or possibly switch to something new. The theme, regardless, will change. But I'll get it back to black ASAP (hopefully before anyone sees it).

Anyway. Thanks everyone. Seriously. Means the world to me.

Just please leave some non-grey on black option for those of us with old eyes?

Yes I'll leave the default theme but it will default to dark. You'll have to switch it yourself.

^^^^^THIS!

Thank you!  I personally abhor dark themes and have been using the light grey theme forever.  It makes seeing a few names difficult (the light blue admin ones, especially) but it's a small price to pay.

Me too. I know we're in the minority, but light grey background is much more readable than infinite blackness to me.

I like the black, and have preferred black background/white text since reading Maddox way back in the day.

Yeah, I will cut people if you change the default theme.

Nope. Not even to the next election, unless you meant 2021.

I just figured you were betting on his impeachment before 2020.
