Hello everyone,

Just wanted to announce that we are now again accepting donations for Steelers Fever. We've been making a lot of changes lately to the website, and with changes, comes the costs of changes.

We've implemented some cool new features in the past few weeks, as well as picked up on regularly performing much needed updates to the site, and best of all, we moved the website over to it's very own virtual private server to help provide stable website performance for our users.

We'd like to get the donations ball rolling again now that these updates are coming in, and every penny you send to us goes DIRECTLY back into the website, as we're a non-profit domain.

With donations, we'll be able to perform the necessary updates to maximize your user experience, and even hold some contests with prize winnings!

Please understand that you are NOT required to donate to us, but every penny we receive is GREATLY appreciated, and you'll receive your very own "Supporter" badge for your contribution!

Some examples of our work over the past month:


Moved to Virtual Private Server for better user experience
Updated homepage, and homepage links
New "themes" located in bottom-left corner
Custom Profiles (check it out!)


That's just a small example of what we've done this past month, and there's much more to come!

I'll be able to fully accept all donations received on Sunday, and we'll have some exclusive contests and site upgrades coming with it. All of your donated money goes right back into the site, so please help us to our goal guys!

Sorry new posters, i'll elaborate: All donation amounts are fine. As far as I know, no limits or limitations on HOW much you can contribute. Be it twenty-cents, or twenty-dollars, it doesn't matter. We appreciate it, we really do.

Sir/Ma'am,
The only thing I would ask is that you ask all of the Steeler faithful on this board to spread the word about this site. There are alot of men and women in the military and out of uniform who are diehard Steeler fans and would be willing to contribute some more perspective and would be more than willing to donate to this site. This site is truly one of a kind and like no other, the content here is far superior than what I could receive from ESPN, CNN SI, CBS Sports or Yahoo, this is the site to go to for everything Steelers. The hell with the Post Gazette, Steelers Fever Foums is the place for Steelers news! :tt04: :tt03: :tt: :tt02: :hatsoff:

After standing off with PayPal for the past week or so, I've FINALLY been able to accept all of your donations. Thanks to all who have donated thus far.

We are above our goal, but still accepting donations. Contests should be back in business pretty soon, I hope you all enjoy what we have to give!

A new "Donate" button has been added to the navigation bar at the top of the screen to make things easier for those who are contributing. Thank you to everyone who has chipped in thus far, we've raised almost 150 dollars.

I'd also like to point you in the direction of this thread: http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=92193

And to boot, we've added a new arcade. Thanks again to everyone who have chipped in. We appreciate it, and we'll try to improve your forum experience with the help of your contribution.

I just donated $20 - hope that's good. Thanks for the site and the ability to express ourselves - especially when it's been such a shitty season. Looking forward to a better season next year.

Put $20 towards us hitting our next mark on donations. Excellent forum as it has been for years I may add. Great groups of folks with different ideas at times but oh well no big deal we still all are Steeler Nation at the end of the day.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions.

I bought some new arcade games: http://forums.steelersfever.com/arcade.php?

Final server maintenance and upgrades have been performed and the site will be fully updated by the 4th. Out goal for 2012 was met, and exceeded, by over $50.

A new donation bar just above the forums has been added to reflect the actual progress. It's currently reset for the new year, and the extra money raised this year will be subtracted from the 2013 goal. Offseason contests will probably be planned to help keep the forum active, as well. Maybe a draft contest?

Let me know what you all think!
