My donation was credited on 12/28. It's unlikely that the check I mailed got from my current location to the P.O. box by 9/28. If, as it appears from this, Phade checks the box quarterly, it's probably not a good idea to mail your check after the start of the 4th week of March, June, September, or December if you want it credited with any especial speed.
I donate once a year and each time I noticed that processing my mail-in check to Phade does seem to take longer and longer. It's been over a month, on March 21, when I mailed in a donation check. My profile still shows a Donation Due notice and I don't think it has cleared the bank, yet. I PM'd Phade just to follow up on my status and check if he received my payment. I figured he only checks his P.O. Box only occasionally so this confirms my suspicions. Thanks for pointing this out, Kai. I'll remember for next year.
