Where to send money?

Postby yale_homo » Sat Jun 12, 2010 10:26 am

It's been a long time. Some of us (i.e. me, maybe others as well) have gone on to do things with our lives. Including earning money. Is there a place we can donate? Think of it as belated giving back.

Either that, or PM me your new address, cass. (or log into aim)

Or you could fly me to NY and make me your live-in assistant who takes care of bills and dead hookers.

He will if you ever succeed at luring him into your lair for a drink.
I know the pieces fit, 'cause I watched them tumble down.
No fault, none to blame; it doesn't mean I don't desire
To point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication.

If people are serious about this I can give you Paypal account info.

I'd take 50% of everything that came in until it paid for server costs (after that I'd take nothing - but I doubt we'd ever reach that point - not that it's a high number). The other 50% I'd force Cass to take.

yeah, it's 11.99 / mo which is a little more than what's needed. Used to be 9.99 and they raised it a bout a year ago.

If anyone has suggestions for moving to something cheaper I'd look into it. Overall, I can't complain too much about 1&1 - all non VPS's suck but this one's not too slow or too limited.

(btw, Cass I'll do that download redirect for you soon - I have to create an index file too not just a subdomain. I'll do it at work work I have ftp stuff already setup).

Did you ever check out the Call of Cthulhu card game? I'm thinking about picking it up just based on the fact that instead of duking it out you win by completing a story.

He should make separate accounts for microtransactions and regular transactions, or just make a microtransaction account and tell people not to donate more than 12$.

Here's a Donate link for now.

I'll try and modify the forum footer to have a little donate paypal button later.

The link should come up with goodrich64 at msn - that's the email I use for paypal. Purpose should say Tides of Blood.

If it says anything else, you've been duped!

Just time using paypal for anything like this so sorry if it's a bit clunky.

In the notes - Please put your ToB forum name and indicate if you want to be anonymous.

Back to off topic board game discussion! :D

That card game sounds interesting. I thought for a moment you were talking about the recently released tile game. That one's supposed to be wretched (in a bad way). I'm still more interested in Arkham Horror but I'll take whatever I can get you to actually play. You're really missing out with the BSG game. Say what you will regarding the show - that game very clever.

I will hold the liquor hostage. Also, everyone should want to be lured into my lair for a drink, for I maintain a perfect atmosphere.


And baw, if you're still accepting donations in August/September/whenever I get my next $4500 from the government, I will donate to the cause. :D

He refuses to do micropayments, even though on a 1$ donation that's a 23¢ difference! The difference shrinks as you go higher though.

Anything is fine - I really don't feel like you have to do anything. Especially don't feel like since there's a donation button you should donate. It's there for people who have too much money and already wanted to donate in the past but didn't have a way to do it.

I'll definitely setup a micropayment option if it makes sense. They are only worth while if we have A LOT of contributions donating a little bit. If it ever gets to the point which I would have saved ONE U.S. DOLLAR by having that mico setup I'll take the time to do it. I doubt it will ever get to that point.


Actually - I'll tell you what, if 3 people post here saying they want to do a microtransaction - I'll set it up.

BTW - I just saw we got our first donation:

50$


I'll start a separate thread somewhere for a running tally of this + some way of distinguishing people. I don't have a forum name of this person or indication they want to be known so I'll withhold that for right now. Please let us know though as I'm sure we'll have some way of creatively thanking people.

I'm not sure what everyone else thinks but finishing O would be thanks enough.

Well, Cass does an insane amount of work on O - I don't think donations will change that. I was thinking more of a little forum badge or something - probably will have to wait until I upgrade again.

IIRC a good way to promote more donation is by showing what exactly they went on (including mad drinking binges).

If the donations start getting significant enough, i could maybe draw up some cool wallpaper or something? I feel something should be done xD

EDIT: Or, even better, for ever x donated i'll convert a ToB hero to starcraft style :P
