Aldie's Full of Love!
mbmb
Thanks to everyone again for generously supporting the site in 2007.

The 2008 supporter badges are now officially for sale, for anyone who wants to get an early jump on this year's support.

www.boardgamegeek.com/support.php

In addition, the feedback I've gotten about giving geekgold rewards for site support has been overwhelmingly positive, enough so to overcome my misgivings on this issue. Starting now, for every dollar you send us, you will receive 1 geekgold from BGG as a small token of thanks. (Send $15, get 15 gg, etc.)

I'm doing this on a trial basis - if I find that it causes a drop in quality site submissions, I may reconsider, but if it works out, this feature will be here to stay.

Thanks to everyone again!

I doubt this will have any effect on the quality submissions, but it might filter some of the not so quality ones, which, if you ask me, is a good thing.

Thanks Aldie! I appreciate the GG, and I agree with Henkka that if it helps cut down on the flood of not-so-good pictures it will be a good thing.

Great idea Aldie,

Why don't you add a link to paypal to make the BGG support easier? Newbies will appreciate that, (and so do I) ...

Happy new year!!

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

It is with great pleasure that I make my 2008 donation.

Here it goes, as promised.

Realised I can't sign up for a monthly $5 as I wanted to (don't have a PayPal account) but I might aswell start with this then donate some more later.

Thanks for the 25 GeekGold.

Ah, crap! Aldie, it seems that I can´t get the focus sharp on my cam since you give out for support... Do you consider this a drop in contribution quality?

Looking forward to another great year at BGG!

I made my donation about a half hour ago, and have my PayPal receipt but don't have my badge or geekgold and can't activate my adblock.

Am I just being impatient?

Best 25 Bucks I've spent since that one-legged girl down in Moosejaw back in '89. Although she did give me change!

Nice to see the Europeans and Australasians getting a headstart on our American cousins here for a change.

Great value Aldie and thanks.

Done.

Thanks for the . I would have supported regardless, but its a nice touch.

Aldie... one minor issue. I paid today Jan 2, 2008 and my profile states that my adblock will end Jan 1, 2009. Are you adding 365 days? 2008 is a leap year.

All the best for the New Year. Long live the Geek!

Finally dit it. Great site. Certainly for a game addict like myself. I am here almost every day. It was time that I contributed. I even would have done it this year without the GG. But finally having an Avatar is really cool nonetheless. It is not my definite one. I will have to give it some more thought.

MAKE THE SUPPORT LINK ON THE FRONT PAGE MORE VISIBLE!

Please.

Seriously, it's not very easy to find. Especially if you're new around here.

--- Oh, and yes. I joined the monthly supporter club! BGG is the most important site on the web, in my book. Money well spent!
