Look there is a Donation button up there!
« on: February 03, 2015, 04:41:09 AM »
All of you are very gracious. But you guys bought a board and you will get a board. The Falcon Team will most likely discuss the addition of a donate button to help with expenses such as boards and the website.

I was searching for a way to donate money the other day. Please add a Donate button!

Thanks for adding the donation button!

Thank you to all that have donated so far. You are truly generous.

I want to show our appreciation by recognizing those that have contributed publicly. What is the best way to do this.  What are your thoughts.

I think you just did that in your post here:

I have a couple idea how you could say thank you...

If you create a place where a bunch of really smart people can collaborate together to create awesome projects and share their creations with the rest of us... Wait you already did that.

If you could collaborate and create a way to run my show with a computer that costs $35... Wait you already did that.

If you could collaborate and create a way to run up to 48 strings of pixels from one controller and output pixelnet from the same device... wait you are doing that now.

By the way, I still haven't received a bill for my portion of what it costs to host this site... Wait a minute, this site is free?


All kidding aside, I think we should be thanking you!

Many sites add the word "supporting" to the member type.

Jim, what does it take to become a "Hero Member"? 
...obviously, you fit the bill!  but what can others do to follow in your footsteps? :)

I was wondering that myself.  I never noticed it until I posted the above in this thread.  I think Dave is having fun.

I did not do that. I will look to see how it is happening. Maybe another admin.

Anyone that has over 500 posts is a "Hero" member if their primary group is not set.

It's going to take me forever to get to Hero Status.   I guess I'm just the quiet guy in the corner


I am glad there is a way to help support the site now.

Sorry, since you mentioned it. I had too. :-)


hopefully smiting doesn't hurt too much around here.

Dang it!  You can't applaud and smite at the same time!  Your smite has been withdrawn.
