Oh hay.

This gives me all the encouragement I need to never donate more than $11/year.

Thanks! My wallet is happier.

It would be great if I was just given access for what I've donated, but we know that will never happen. And the automated thank you message was awesome that I got for it, beats any personal thanks message. It's the thing that shows me how appreciative people are here, almost as if that create a barrier from ever donating here ever again. And the whole going on and on about how an off topic forum is NEVER coming back from admins and mods then all the sudden making one is another thing that makes me wonder. Nice and credible.

Do you really think it would be practical to try to respond personally to ALL the people who donate? Plus they do something nice for us by actually putting up an OT forum again and you're complaining that they did it? :?

Do you honestly expect us to tell you our moderately-secretive behind-the-curtain plans?

no i don't, not at all. i've never opened up my mouth ever about my donation on this forum since i've donated, only when people have pmed me asking something about it. sorry i've complained. when i tell people how much i've donated to this site in real life they are baffled, and i just tell them this site has been a big part of my life since i was a teen, then i say i gave the biggest donation, and then they say i must of got a big thank you letter, and i say no just an automated letter, then they seem to think that is messed up. I was shocked no one ever personally thanked me, I was going to be quite about it, but this is the first time it slipped out, I slightly regret saying anything, I don't want anyone to kiss my ass, but I was hoping for at least one thanks, I mean I made the biggest donation at the time and I think only 6 people have ever donated around that much at that time. Now I feel bad I said anything at all, forget I said anything. Delete my flamebait reply to this thread, again sorry for opening my big fat complaint mouth.

I've given you access to the donator's forum. For some reason the forums is reading your donation status as total leech. Please keep in mind that though the thank you emails sent out are automated, they are not insincere. However, it's impractical to send out a personalized thank you email to donators, even for the largest donations, because after writing a few emails, they will all be the same message anyway, not to mention the time costs and the fact that site administration is a voluntary side job for all the admin here.

When you gain some experience with real life businesses dealing with thousands of clients, you'll find that they need to give canned feedback to their clients, even when they meet them in person.

Why thank you! Sorry for my troubles and thanks for the kindness you are showing. To be honest, I'm suppose to redonate for that forum, my donation is over a year old.(explaining my comment about never giving access) >_> But if you don't mind keeping me that access I would be very happy to have that option open available, considering the amount I donated, or maybe I should just redonate, though I wish it was easier, I'm having trouble with paypal, I even made a thread talking about alternatives for ways of donating.

I should of paid more attention.. and kept my little gripes to myself. :cry:

NEway, again sorry, and lets move on folks! Enjoy the new forums! These forums are great for getting more info on other members, already a lot of forums showing what the other members about, pics, travel, interests, etc.. so donate or do whatever you can to get it if you are interesting in those types of things. It's pretty nice.

Speaking of automated responses, you guys might want to update the donators automated response. It still mentioned getting access to the golden donut with your donation. That means it hasn't been updated for what, four or give years?

X2. And not quite four years.
I already mentioned this on my journal, but maybe I should have mentioned it in my Org journal instead.

On a totally unrelated note, could the programmers be so kind as to make it so when a post has a 1:1 smiley to sentence ratio or better that the user doing so has their computer burst into flames, their cat raped, their grandmother killed, and their computer downloads all of ramonesfans videos and plays them automatically? If you could manage this I'd even go so far as to try to con Minion out of another $12 for ya.
