    Lightbulb New Donation System In Place

    I've setup a new donation system that will allow us to better recognize those that make donations to the site. From now on when a member makes a donation, they'll automatically be awarded the sponsor image under their name and be included on a donor list that is accessible from the "Quick Links" drop-down on the top navbar or by going to "Donor List" on the left navbar. I'll work on any bugs that may crop-up but hopefully this will help recognize those that have made donations.

    I need to know if people that donate would like the amount they donated to be visible or if they'd prefer that to remain hidden. Also, I can accept donations from people that wish to remain off the list for whatever reason.

    Note: I'll be working on adding past donors/donations to the list but won't have them added for a few days due to moving later this week.

    If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy Lind

    Re: New Donation System In Place

    I know that I can't donate a whole lot, but I'm sure every little bit counts. I think there should not be amounts posted, but if there are they should be in ranges, like "$25 and under", "$50-100",....up to $1 million.

    Re: New Donation System In Place

    If I make a donation, can I have my Rep Level read 1,000,000? Just sitting on the fence makeing my decision.

    I think you should pass out titles corresponding to the amounts. Let's get a caste system going here.

    I think it would be better if only donor/non-donor was specified.

    Re: New Donation System In Place

    I like the idea of levels for donors. Something like "Gold Level", "Cardinal Level", "Blue Trim Level". Something like that.

    His Grace has a good idea, although my understanding is that the greeting of Your Highness would be reserved for the Monarch (Jeremy) and his closest family.

    In addition to the donation-base peerage, there would of course be the Order of Moderation, members of which should be referred to as Sir, unless they hold a higher title in the peerage. The honorable members of this order are held in the utmost confidence by His Highness, and are charged with enforcing good behavior throughout the Kingdom.

    Personally, I can’t even imagine ever achieving the level of confidence required to become a member of the Order of Moderation, let alone controlling my own duchy. But how much would it cost to become an Earl?

    Sincerely,

    Soon to be Lord IceClone

    Actually, if you wanted to do this right, Jeremy would be "Your Majesty." The Global Mods would be "Your Highness." The Order of Moderation would be referred to as "Dukes" and "Duchesses." Donors can get some degree of "Sir" and "Lady." The rest of you can fight over mere peasantry!
