You've asked for it, now you've got it.

Presenting: The official Linkin Park Association Paypal donation account.

Help us pay for our monthy hosting bills as well as upgrades to the site! Currently we are not quite sure how to reward members who donate, however if you do decide to contribute money we do ask that you give your member name somewhere in the notes upon donating.


CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO US (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=donations%40lpassociation%2ecom&item_name=The%20Linkin%20Park%20Association&no_shipping=2&no_note=1&tax=0&currency_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF&charset=UTF%2d8)

Likewise, a donation button is in the process of being added onto the front page.

We are now accepting donations from people of all ages, you no longer need to be 18 to donate.

I think members who donate should be placed in the VIP member group, or, at the very least, given their own Donater member group.

Well, we did that last time for those who donated money for us to get vB. I can see that happening again.

Guys I happily donate here and there but what's up with the 18+ stipulation?

Yeah, I was wondering that too...I would guess because of PayPal, but yeah...

Derek

Because we may use the donations as a key to get into a private forum we're considering where we would allow posts not normally allowed to the public.

18+ is so some 14 year old's mommy wont write us crying and whining =).

ROFL. *shakes head*

Would you be willing to make some exceptions for, oh say, super members, who donate? ^_^

Done. You hosers just got 25 dineros from me...plus whatever else I decide to throw forth later on :lol:

Feel special, everyone! :lol:

Omar

I want to thank all of you guys who have donated now, and in the past. You've really shown us how much we mean, and we're definetly going to make it up for you. As you know, none of the money you give goes into our pockets; it's all being put towards our newly increased hosting charge (heavily increased lol).

Make sure you get your new VIP badge!

Derek
10-04-2006, 01:26 AM
25 dineros = 25 US dollars, which means in combination with Mr. Anthony's donation, we have already enough to pay for a month of hosting.

Keep donating and perhaps we wont have to worry about paying anymore.

Canadian Joe

There might be Christmas present from Santa Joe if everyone stays off my naughty list :lol:

Already taken care of ;).

Fuck that, man.

...I mean 'what?'

Derek
10-04-2006, 01:34 AM
Lol, its basically 18+ so Amanda doesnt see any naughty stuff.

:whistling

We're debating working out something for you youngins too.

Will

On the subject of users being placed into a brand-new member group, I think I should have my own member group: Superhero.

...

@Mark:
I forgot about that. :lol:

Mark
10-04-2006, 03:07 AM
There's no guarantee it will be an 18+ forum. At the moment, all ideas are preliminary. There will undoubtedly be something that accomodates everyone and does not exclude anyone. Otherwise, it's unfair, and it also cuts down on our donation market. :P Stay tuned.

Oooh, donations! If I wasn't broke (correction: 25c) I'd donate.

Hm, I have about a dollar in my wallet. I wonder if that would suffice. :P

I don't have paypalllll

Tom
10-04-2006, 03:26 PM
well i would happily donate to LPA but i'm 15, and don't have paypal, i'll see if i can get it soon though.

hmmm you know for the reward thing are you allowed your own 'Custom badge' title cause that would probably make people donate more :P

Todd
10-05-2006, 12:40 AM
The team has spent part of the day testing out a new forum feature that only VIPs will get, and you guys will love it :D

Derek

What's under Todd's name is a HUGE clue. (This is the all ages thing we were talking about for donaters :whistling )

Derek

You know what? Screw it.

You do NOT need to be 18 to donate. You can donate regardless of any age. =).

Have fun!

Like I spend enough time on LPA, now there's an arcade. Wtf.

Derek
10-05-2006, 04:10 AM
Yup. We aim to ruin your family and personal life =).

Mark
10-05-2006, 05:06 AM
Donating gives you access to the Arcade forums, along with some other perks!

You're funny.

Gaah, did you have to put the Arcade champion info in the postinfo? It's rather distracting with the white text links.

I mean, I'm all happy that you've installed an arcade [you'll be seeing a donation from me eventually, don't worry. =p] but that's just bloat and distracting to me when I'm trying to read a post. I'll be reading a post, and suddenly my eyes will be like "hey, bright white text on a dark background over there, wonder what it says.", so yeah. -_-

If you don't mind changing it, please. Otherwise, I'll figure out how to get rid of it with Stylish. :lol:

Hey, even if I was a VIP with access to the arcade, it'd still bug me. I'm not whining that it's bugging me because I don't have access to the arcade, I'm saying it because it's somewhat obtrusive.

I understand that it annoys you, but is it really worth complaining about? Ask yourself that question in the future. :P It just seems very trivial to me. Haha.

I mean, seriously; a bright font color (the same color as the post font color, only bolded) and a small little icon is obstructing/distracting you from reading a post? Gee, you must hate the custom colors for user groups like the Math Squad. :lol:

Omar
10-06-2006, 04:25 AM
Actually, I too agree. I'll talk to Todd about fixing it up a bit.

Todd
10-06-2006, 04:37 AM
Well, we have 2 options for the championship icons:

1. Remove them completely, then it's no fun.
2. Scrolling marquee, which, IMO, is even more annoying.

Actually, there's a 3rd option. Donate, and encourage everyone else to donate, and as more people play games and win titles, the icons will be more spread out ;)

Will
10-06-2006, 04:49 AM
Todd, is there a way for you to edit the badges? For example, by changing the font color to something darker to match the rest of the information over yonder? That'd easily take care of Tomi's problem. But then again, it's not seeming to bother anyone else. :lol:

Thank you. -_-


Todd, could you maybe make it the same colour, grey, as the rest of the postinfo text? That'd be enough to shut me up. :lol:

Thanks. :)

lmfao. That's not completely true. :lol:

I complain about things on IPB-powered forums too. :P Actually, I recall sending a PM to Alex saying that the forum was out of date when I first registered. :teehee:

Guys, I dont care if its necroposting I have to make you aware of something.

If you got a message today that your donation has been cancelled it is because Paypal are being pricks. Apparently my bank account is tied to an old Paypal account that went inactive ages ago, yet I cannot find which one it is which annoys the living crap out of me.

I now have to use my dad's bank account, which means most if not all of your donations have been sent back. Damn paypal. Damn them.

Damnit Derek, necroposting is posting 30 days after the last post. It would've had to of been November 9th to be necroposting. :P

Omar

There is, but paypal is the safest way to transfer money in situations such as this.
