    I put in $10 for now, might put in more later if I ever have some spare cash. I mean, I spend more money on games I rarely ever play, at least this will go towards something I use regularly.

    This is awesome! Unfortunately, I can't donate due to still living with my parents, still being in high school and having only recently turned 18...
    However, I truly do hope that this is successful!

    That seems particularly long, especially if this is going to be done anually. It's no big deal though, just curious.

    Again it's because Ian wants this fundraising drive to cover the two years which is why he extended the badges for up to 2 years.

    Great job everyone! Many minors cannot pay, as unable to access bank accounts or credit cards. So, from all of us, thank you so much to the people who have donated!

    Ian as a small gesture of thanks for this wonderful site which I have enjoyed for almost 10 years I have donated $50. I hope it helps you.

    While £10 is all I could spare for now, I hope it's a small way of saying how much I and many others appreciate the time, effort and money you, @Ian the Admin and the moderators, put into this community.

    All the best!

    For those who think they must dig deep (first good for you) or those who feel they cannot give enough do focus on how given the size of our community the overall burden is minor.

    As before 15 people donating $10 a month pays for this site for an entire year.

    This site has actually improved my mental wellbeing by giving me an outlet for my passion and creative energies that I cannot get from anywhere else in real life for the past 2 years. How can I say no when it comes time to help out? :)

    I give Google 10 bucks a month so I don't get ads on YouTube, and I'm on this site a lot more than YouTube!

    We've just passed $1700 so 2017 is nearly paid for!

    Awesome, thanks everyone who has donated so far. It really shows that people care about the community here.

    Try something obviously fake, like 111-111-1111 or 123-456-7890?
