    Don't get offended if people are only able to put $5. Some people struggle with even getting food. Having been homeless for 3 years I wish to personally say, FUCK YOU. $5 can add up quick, this campaign to transfer TI could go well if awareness is increased.

    I'm soft-deleting the majority of this argument since moderating leads to crucifixions nowadays. Please drop it and let this discussion stay healthy.

    I might donate out of my next payment period. I might not. Who knows?

    Gah I left my card at the bar last weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to get my donation in by the end of the week.

    I'd be more than happy to pledge a firework show once we meet our fundraising goals! Love the idea. I also love the idea of the Pizza GY farmathon lol. I think we should get Hunnybuns and Livingforce to do something funny at different donation milestones too.

    As another incentive option, I'm sure Conq and I can pledge certain levels of GG 19 funding based on donation milestones. Perhaps whoever contributes the 500th, 1,000th, 1,500th dollar receives a fully funded twink on BH. I'll talk to Conq about other possible incentive structures.

    I've always thought the donation framework of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was brilliant. For our needs we could have community members perform a challenge on their twink in game, record it on video or twitch stream, pledge a donation to Indiegogo, and then call out a handful of other twinks to repeat the process. This could be a great way to secure participation from a vast portion of the bracket, and thus for donations to snowball. I'll give some thought to what the challenge could be and how to structure it - if you have any ideas shoot me a PM!

    For those of you who don't know what the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is, here's Donald Trump:

    It's his real hair ;)

    Cheers!

    Myrm communication since taking over has been poor, to put it kindly. Just view the last page of this thread. Numerous pings and PMs go unanswered. Picking up the site with noble intentions, but without a gameplan, was foolhardy. That Myrm "purchased" the site from Shane without securing the license to run the forum is mind-boggling.

    And now we are being asked to donate funds to move forward in securing a Xenforo license? There must be accountability for expenditure, e.g. exact cost breakdowns. Going forward TI should be a member-owned co-op overseen by a board with fiduciary accountability. Surely we have some professionals with a modicum of business experience who can lend their spare time.

    Since this business venture with Blizzard isn't panning out, perhaps it's time to revisit the private server and account/item sales discussion. I use another forum built on Xenforo. Members who support the site are granted access to create their own private subforum. Unless invited, not even admins have access to the private subforum. Users are encouraged to network, and once trusted, an invite will come naturally.

    Fundraising wise, different pools of money should be developed for different causes. If the private server/account sales private subforum option is taken well, challenge people in that camp: If you can raise $500 to that goal, private subforum creation privileges will be granted to those who donate ~$1/month, of course don't ask, don't tell what people are doing behind closed doors. Challenge the US/EU supporters: The first group to raise $250 will forever be given precedence on the new site e.g. if there US or EU will always come first in a thread topic, first on a thread/subforum list, etc. (Open to suggestions).
