I like the new arm band. Blue and gold were my High School colors.

@Scorpio , I cannot get the link to allow me to donate. It will not allow me to change $0.00 to any other number. Fix?

Update:

$1735 in so far less fees, so half way to goal

Thanks to all, I will catch up with pm's later.
Those without a banner, received one
Those that were already 2 star, need to make one for you
Give me time and I will get to it

fyi, there are 3 persons who donated with no reference to add a banner to them.
If you are one of those, please let me know.

1 for sure prefers to remain without recognition, and it will remain so.

Keep the button up until ALL costs are covered, that way we can keep tossing some in as it comes in.
Be sure to add some freshly grilled bear kibble and beer too.
It's all good.

I don't really care about getting extra stars. Just the yellow banner works for me.* Just don't accidently call me an athletic supporter.

*Unless the new multiple supporter banner looks cool. Then I want one!

Not to change the subject but you do realize this was pretty close to a crypto transaction right?
It's just we voluntarily converted cash to digits (or will in the next billing cycle), then transfered digits to someone else's digits, who may or may have paid their bills in digits, who may or may not have converted those digits to cash.........
So why the need for cash?

hey you,
figured you out but there were 3 others that didn't match up
Wondering if I'm one of those 3 Scorp. Done the deed about the time you posted this. Could have have sworn I put me screen name in the note section though.

fyi, afternoon update

more that did not want recognition
those are represented by the blanks with no name/nic

So Far,

$2495

Hasn't even been 24 hrs yet.

That proves the members care about this place,
and not from just a few large donors.

Good stuff for all, and we all thank those who have contributed prior and on this push for next years expenses,

Thanks from all of us to you!

There's not another forum on the netz like this one. It'd totally suck if there were no GIM2 imo.

On my Paypal donation page, I did not see anything for putting in a comment.

Upper end of the page should be a Add note to receiver or some such thing.

ok all,

First, congrats,

Within less than 24 hrs or so, you knocked it out.
With commits coming in by mail, we are over the goal.
Currently total sits at $2934.66

The banner will stay up very temporary for those that still want to get in this cycle, then it will be taken down. What comes after the goal is reached will be used to build our war chest, and will be there for GIM business.

I will keep updating as things come in.
Hat tip to all those on the list, and those that prefer to remain anonymous also on post #1.

As a side note, there are those that have either donated more than 2 times, and/or in quantity large enough over the years to justify a new category, or Sr Site Supporter.

We have commits coming in the mail also, and we await those showing up over the next week or so.

I have always held that the persons here are what makes the place,

They have just proven it once again,

One thing that needs to be stated though is a shout out to mayhem.

He is in a bad way health wise, and might be good if'n people are interested to give him a 'hey up' by pm and a prayer.

Just teasing Mike. Sorry to all. Just trying to be funny. This is why I'm not a professional comedian. Who would pay me for this low level humor?
