Default WI Donors :) Quick Question

I've been on WI for quite a while and I'm now wondering what a donor is. I always thought you donated money or something. I think it's donating webkinz to WI to distribute to the less fortunate or.. I just really don't know. Could I get a mod or donor to check this out and tell me? I want to know Thanks!

I think a while ago there was a fundraising to help Philip and his family. But right now, there isn't one

DL's right, it was to donate to philip -- the people who did that got a "Lion" WI donor badge .
And yes, it is given to people who donate money to WI . Before americawade partnered and hosted contests, I believe the staff + these funds paid for them

Like DogLover said, there used to be donations to Phillip. They might donate Webkinz or money.

P.S.
This should have been in the Somebody Help! section.

I would like to see this site X-nay the ads and at least try to run on donations like its competitor is doing so successfully now. This would eliminate the portal by which viral attacks and malware ads (including pop-up forwarding) occur... and continue to occur. If WI went on pure donations, no ads, I am sure a lot of people would be more than happen to Paypal them a few bucks now and then... And, with such huge user base, that should be plenty!

I have been trying for about 3 months to integrate donations back into the site and will be able to do so shortly, things continue to come up that sidetrack me. There will likely be subscriptions to the forum and a donation system. Those who choose to be subscribers will be offered the option to disable ads in their UserCPs.

We'll still have to employ ads because the multiple servers that we utilize to support the 1500+ concurrent users during peak times are much more expensive than one might imagine.

justin, i like the idea a lot. the ads that are running now keep refreshing the pages on me and i have to wait to finish posts or threads and it gets very annoying.
i would definitely donate just to have the option to have the ads not show up. that is awesome and i hope that yu can get it set up, implemented and in use soon.

thanks for the info... i love the idea. keep us informed.
