It’s taken a long time to show up, but you can now see to the right of our main page underneath the GoGamer and ThinkGeek links that there is a Paypal link. This is not a sign that Gaming Trend is on its last leg or anything, but a reaction to users asking for the chance to donate towards the site. The money will go straight to the server payments and won’t be pocketed by Ron or any of the Gaming Trend crew.

We have big plans ahead, including a re-design of the site, the database and other things. As thanks for giving a donation we will offer you your own forum tag under your nickname if you like. The tag has to be within CoC rules and you can contact [email protected] (Ron) with your special tag wish and we will get it done as soon as possible. Once again, thank you for your donation.

If you don’t want to use Paypal and want to send money directly to Ron, feel free to mail the donation to:

Too bad we can't have a counter on the front page with how much donations we've gotten.

I can keep people updated if Ron gives me the information and let you know both here and on the front page.  Not sure if a counter can be done or not since it isn't my Paypal account.

I can keep a running tally if you'd like.  I don't know if that is 'front page' material but I'll keep it updated in here.  I've always been open and honest with the community, I don't see where this should be different.  Give me a few to gather my thoughts and I'll get to it.

I'm not looking to make money - anything I get sent will go directly towards these costs and getting better grades of service and such for the site.  This isn't just a hobby to me and we will still move forward even if a dime didn't come our way.  That said, the tally is below and I'll keep it updated:

Tally as of - 9/01/05
$259.10

It's like I told KD, we've got a very supportive set of readers who really love this site.  For that, I thank each and every one of you, if you've donated or not.  Me?  I just work here, and I agree with KD.  It's not a hobby.  I do this because I absolutley love doing it.  Being a bit behind the scenes, so to speak, is admittedly entertaining at times, but even with all the work...this is fun.  

If it wasn't, we wouldn't be here.

Thank you all.

Don't worry about it Ron!  

I'll just convince Devil he owes me money for something.  Then you and I will both end up making money on the deal!

Whah? How do I owe all you guys money? If anything, the fact that I pretend to interact with you clowns, leaves you both indebted to me for life!  biggrin

If you pull out some ram and mail it to me, the server will be lighter, thusly easier to move.

You're welcome!

I am rather humbled and embarrased to post this, but I need your help.  I just had a major financial catastrophy that depleted my savings to zero - in short, I need your help.  If there is anything you can donate to the site this month, it would be incredibly appreciated.  The site isn't in danger of closing up shop or anything, but it would take a great deal of pressure off of me right now.  Again, I am humbled by having to make this request, but in the position I'm in, I have no choice.

I appreciate your help.
