    2017 Donations Megathread

    Attention: Graffe's is currently running a fundraiser to run the site! Here, or by sending money directly to graffe.donations@gmail.com via PayPal.

    As a reminder, our total hosting costs run us $25/month, and for the past 2 years our total donations have been less than that on average. If you've enjoyed your time spent at Graffes for the past couple years, and would like to see us stick around, throw in a few bucks!

    Thanks everyone,
    Daniel "Nadiar" Janssen

    On the table for the next couple years, we need to upgrade forum software (xenForo) as well as $25/month

    Math! I suck at it. Sorry the progress bar was moving at double speed.

    Big thanks to everyone for getting us past the 1 year goal! I'll leave this all up until next week, but don't forget you can donate any time, not just when we're low

    Woo woo!

    I would have donated more, for this round, but I am trying to balance a couple financial things all at once.

    Maybe drop a notice every month to remind people that they can donate.

    Every time wikipedia does it, it works on me. Same as everything else. It does work on me.

    I typically donate when we have a money drive but I'm in a fiscal crunch due to medical bills from this past year for another ~3-4 months. Please do keep a donation linky-pooh up so I can donate in the late spring-early summer! And thanks for all your hard work Nad ....

    Sorry gang but like I really do live on beans, sandwiches and cheap frozen pizzas nowadays :/
    Books take what money I have left, like I play games to death, very cost efficient pain/despair killers

    I know the total bar got taken down and exceeded before I got to donations, but what are we at now, two months on?

    I have the ability to toss some money at things for the moment, even though I'd intended to do so much earlier.

    Oh, and can I buy a supporter title on behalf of someone else, or are those not still things in the forum software?
