Can we get a progress bar or something of the sort going? We're already making good headway!
Getting there. ^_^

The code repository has changed and I am being a dork about getting it re-established on my machine. Looks like we need a progress bar for the progress bar. :asd:

A simple image that is colored in every day (accompanied by a dollar amount) would be sufficient too lol

EDIT: Also, I approve of the use of Ghostbusters in this thread. Please continue.

It's quick. It's dirty. It's a chart. :-)

Would it be possible to just have the on-going option of "Buy a HDD full of videos to support the site"? I'd love to buy one but you picked a terrible time for me to fork out $1000...

This place is dying.
I died half a decade ago, until someone sent an email just now.

Thanks for waking me up. I'll consider.

What did the email mean by "incentives" exactly? Did I miss something? $1000 hard drives are a bit too bait-and-switch for that kinda language.

I don't really think about the org that much anymore, but I'll donate a few bucks, for old times' sake. I hope it all works out for you people.

I think Phade is doing what he can, and only promises things he can actually provide...

Ex.
EditorMcGee volunteers to make any AMV for the first person to donate $50.
ArtistMcSwag volunteers to do a cool drawing of whatever the first person to donate $70 wants.

The community helping the community with what we do. :P
McGee and McSwag did not step forward yet, nor did anyone suggest other incentives.

I probably won't have time to make an AMV for everyone that donated X amount of dollars (and I don't think anyone would want a drawing from me), so I won't promise anything.
There was also some talk about getting a feature for your AMV for some money, I think that's not the way to go, but if it's just for the fund raiser duration it should be ok.
My imagination is pretty limited and can't think of any way of helping this fund raiser, except for, like... donating...

I wasn't looking for anything more than clarification. The forum is buggy for announcement messages. When you click on the icon that should bring you to unread posts, it deposits you *somewhere* in the thread, so it's easy to miss posts entirely.

Contribution made in the name of a good cause, which for me comes down to supporting a site that I've trusted to host my videos and (more importantly) is trying to preserve the legacy of the thousands of AMV creators that have invested so much time and effort in this hobby.

Hey Everyone!



The first hard drive is away!! ^_^

After having to re-engineer my query to get all the video information into a CSV file due to temp table problems (yet another reason to need new servers), I've gotten the first hard drive into the mail and on the way to the new owner. Two more will be out this week. And, I will be sending out a 4th drive as well later on!!

Just to give you guys an update on where we are, we've collected almost $6000 towards our goal for the new servers! There is now only $1500 to go until you guys make me up my donations and buy the offsite backup server. At this rate, it should be mid next week. :-)

Keep going! You can do it!! ^_^

Phade.
