Bi-Yearly site support donations

Post by emu_kidid » Wed Feb 19, 2014 4:35 am

Our 4th anniversary is almost here at GC-Forever and we're still going strong with over 2000 member registrations :) It's great to see all the GameCube enthusiasts that have dropped by or made this a familiar place for themselves over the years. I'd like to thank everyone who has positively contributed to the site and continue to do so, I won't mention specific names because I'd hate to leave anyone out, but for those few, you know who you are, and GC-Forever wouldn't be the same without you.

Whilst I am able to fund the site by myself here and there, donations are very much appreciated and are the lifeblood of the forum/site.

To make donations interesting again, there is a ticket based prize raffle where every donation of $5 or more will get a ticket.
e.g: $5 = 1 ticket, $10 = 2 and $15 would get you 3, etc.

There will be as many winners as there are prizes and the winners will get to choose their single prize based on draw order (i.e. first place can choose whatever they feel like, etc).

The prizes in the pool (courtesy of Megalomaniac and myself):
  • GameCube spare parts of choice (fan, HS, case, mobo, controller board, psu) (4 winners will get to choose any item, even the same as another winner)
  • MegaDrive Adapter (version based on users needs)
  • Qoob PRO (only donations of $15 or more get you in the pool to choose this)
  • SD Gecko (not the cheaper WiikeySD version)
  • WASP Fusion
  • Xeno GC
  • Xeno GC
  • Near New DK Bongos (USA winner only)
  • Special Unreleased megalomaniac "mega mystery mod suprise" (only donations of $25 or more get you in the pool to choose this)
If you would like to donate, please use the widget on the front page of the site and add PM me the donation transaction number (if you wish to enter the raffle) so I know who you are. AUD is the preferred currency to make donations in, but I'll happily take USD.

Donated! I'll toss some more in once I get my bonus check. :D

Thanks to everyone here for making this a great community to be a part of!

EDIT: I'll look around tomorrow and see if I have any stuff I can toss in the prize pool.

More prizes than winners at the moment, ideally I'd like it to be the other way.. but it makes for excellent odds for those who have donated ;)

Don't take this the wrong way, but I will not use paypal unless as a guest, even then I avoid it if I can.

Mostly I am just posting to say this right now since I can't donate anyways; Whoever gets the mystery mega mod, please tell us what it is :)

It's a prize that will be randomly selected. If you donate then you go into the draw to win one, if you're selected first, you get first pick at the prize list.

looking back 2 years ago, there was a nice selection of prizes to choose from...
viewtopic.php?p=10162#p10162


the prize list for this bi-year has tripled from 4 winners to 12 winners and the raffle ticket entry has dropped from 10$ donation to only 5$ donation...
also, the prizes now are more valuable considering a majority of the items are becoming harder to find or increasing in average cost...

looking at the prize list, i think the worst part of being selected to win a prize is having to decide which treasure to claim..
