It's time for the Horror Channel TV advert. :datass:

Can we please get an advert on the shittiest channel at the worst possible time? :lol:

How much would something like that cost?

Everyone knows that the only way to get a message out there these days is to put it on the side of a big bus:

Just a bump to say that the vote runs through until early tomorrow morning... so we're nearing the finale for folk who wish to indicate that they'd lke to contribute to GR's funding.

It's been a terrific effort so far; right now, we have 20 people in the £2 bracket and 8 in the £1 bracket; that's £48 per month, equating to an amazing £576 per year! Plus we have an additional 15 people who indicate that they will make ad-hoc payments!

Thank you to those who have voted and to those who have said they can help out :wub: . Let's try and build on these indications to make the idea become reality!

We have finished with 20 people in the £2 bracket and 9 in the £1 bracket; that's £49 per month, equating to a brilliant £588 per year! Plus we have the additional 15 people who have indicated that they will make ad-hoc payments :-).

Thank you again to those folk who voted and to those people who have indicated that they can help out! Let's keep the momentum going and make this happen!

I'm conscious you were looking into the payment arrangements, GG; do you need any other info at this point?

This is heartwarming to see because we are running a deficit on funds at the moment and I need to sort this out.

I have an insanely manic Monday lined up because a rush job came in on Thursday evening so I will look at it in the middle of the week, still investigating options at the moment as ideally I'd like it all on one page (except direct debit, I think that will have to be done 1 to 1).

Looking at the amounts I think I should be able to set it up so people can choose £1, £2 or any amount they like and whether or not that reoccurs each month i.e. a subscription. And that can be via PayPal or a debit card.

I refuse to donate any money until someone sets up a live fundraising thermometer! :capnscotty:

I'll make a payment and then set up a DD from next month.

How attractive is GG? Important to know before donating to avoid disappointment.

Thanks guys. I know it's a large target than before (about double, but close to what we actually received in previous "rounds"), and I'm still committed to setting up something recurring and easy to manage.

It's funny you mention that because I was thinking of taking a pic of myself as the smiley face behind GRcade but then, I realised that might be a bit weird because no I am not available for "services" and this isn't really about me (apart from my ability to pay for stuff and worry about how the hell I cover it later) :dread:

I know you're joking, but I'm going to code up one that gets manually updated. So at least it'll look "live". :shifty:

That's why I don't want the "services", the user agreement would be 50,000 pages long. :dread:
