Generosity seems to beget generosity.

Many thank go to our newest generous Donator!

Since they didn't post here, I won't name them, but they know who they are, and it's greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You've gotten an Upgrade. ;)

Agreed Chris! Thanks to APC for allowing me to learn so much! After the pyro gods got me through this July unscathed, I figured I better kick a little cash down to keep the karma good. :P (OK OK actually my roommate did since I did all the research...there's a tip for you guys thinking of donating- find someone impressed with your creations and have them pony up)

I donated again today...? I don't remember that. Mumbles must have gotten ahold of my credit card at PGI :whistle:

LOL... well, I think it was a few days ago actually. But no matter. It's still appreciated.

And everyone's donations are being held in my Paypal business account for expenses.

I'll be using some of it to renew Support for our software today or tomorrow. We're in good shape, thanks to all of you. :)

No, I mean I don't think I ever donated a second time. I think you may be giving me the credit for another individuals donation.

Owell. You can keep the upgrade, you've contributed in a positive manner to the forum's content. :)

I'll fix the right account now.

And.... it turns out I edited the right account, but had a brain fart when I wrote down the name. And your name's aren't similar. Damned if I know where the brain went south.

You got kicked to a higher level of Donator. :)

It's transparent to everyone, since we aren't dividing donators by "who gives how much", but should have given you more PM space plus a couple other increases.

Thanks Sidewinder. Hey, a few people have mentioned the opening of a charity fund for mumbles but I'm getting tired of waiting for someone else to do it. I don't have much experience setting up paypal accounts and I don't know what other options I have. It seems paypay will collect something like 2.4% of all donations. Can we just donate to this account?!? Would everyone feel comfortable donating any stockpiled funds in this account to helping mumbles? Financial help is one of the few ways we can help.

Yeah, definitely. I'm keen to help him out as well. There would be a considerable amount of expenses due to the accident and I'm sure there's many people here and at other places who would be eager to help a fellow pyro/friend.

If the account is set up as and is donated to using send a gift, there is no charge. PayPal can be sent directly to (EDITED OUT)

Give me a day to make sure Chris is OK with this before sending the money please.



EDIT: I removed the email link, since Mumbles said the account is closed. See the next page, please!

Sounds good, Dave. While I *could* accept money through the board donation account, and would be happy to do so, I agree it might be best to send direct.

Keep me posted as to what he says, please.
