Mercs 2012 Operational Fund and Supporter Tags
« on: Jan 03, 2012, 09:22 AM »

Ok folks, 2012 has officially begun, and that means that we continue to ask for donations to help keep Mercs running on the web.  As a bit of quick history, when the site began 5 years ago it was being hosted graciously by Mandalor Novall Talon out of his own pocket.  Over time, the site grew so popular that we had to upgrade our web hosting package just to keep the site running smooth and it became too much for one person to bear the cost of.  Since that time, we have asked you every year to help raise around $200 a month or $2500 a year to keep the site moving.

The money goes towards paying the server bill each month and any administrative costs like software for the forum, brochures for large events, business cards, and getting merchandise set up.  As always, your friendly staff is unpaid and on a volunteer basis, so please take heart that all the donations are going straight to the organization.

We have reset the SUPPORTER tags for this year, so any new donation this year will gain you that nifty tag back.  It will reset at the end of the year.

If you would like to help donate, please find the "Donations" button on the top menu, or visit the front page and look for the "Operational Fund" donation button.  Thanks again!

We had a few snags with the paypal info not pulling in but we've made a fix this morning.  I'm going to give it a few hours...but anyone who donated but didn't get a tag applied under their name, please PM me with your paypal email address so I can verify the donation and get it fixed for you. :D

Just to add a couple details to the list.

Supporters will have access to discounts on some Mercs swag during the year.

On top of operational costs, we also use this money to invest in helping clans get much needed items promotional/informational that they might not be able to afford themselves. 

This year, our primary expense is going to be CVI.  We are aiming to really wow everyone, and your donations are what's going to make that possible.  :)

Though it's pretty rad, I'm showing up with TWO supporter tags... is that intentional or is that a glitch?

Glitch.  It's been fixed.  It's cause I tried to add them manually this morning when it was busted, but now that it's fixed it's taking care of it automatically.

I think there should just be a "Thaxos" tag and we'd be done with it XD

Sean's tags take up half the page. Lets see... 5 tags, then his name, then the OM dealy, then his award, then his picture... we just need a picture of a Moose and it's sum it up.
