Just wanted to take a second to thank all of those who have donated to Steelers Fever. A LOT of much needed work has gotten done over the past month and a half, and I couldn't have done it without your help.

We've installed a lot of cool new features, including an arcade, and our web host and forum host (VB) have just finished maintenance on the website that'll improve server stability and improve speed and website performance on gameday.

Plenty of contests and promotions will be popping up throughout the regular season, as well, so be sure to check the "Contests and Giveaways" sub-forum within the Steelers forum from time to time to get in on it.

you should raise the 2012 donation goal from $100 to $200.

we're already at $120, I'll guarantee you there will be posters here who appreciate this board enough to donate at least another $80 between now and year-end.

Thanks, Hawaii. I've upped it to $200, so we'll need some more contributors! Any amount helps, and it all goes right back into the board for upgrades, maintenance and contests/promotions!

And for those of you who aren't aware of how you can contribute, simply click the "Donate" button on the navigation bar at the top of the forum. It's red, and impossible to miss. All donations are sent through PayPal, and if you don't have a PayPal account, there should be a "Guest" or "Don't have a PayPal?" option after you submit your donation amount.

Bayz, $10 more for this awesome site, to me this is $30 I spent very well, lets raise this bar and keep the donations coming, why stop at $200? There are many Steeler faithful willing to give for this board, lets keep it going! :tt03: :tt02: :tt:

Thanks so much, Gold Steel. You've been an awesome contributor. We would have set the bar a little higher as far as donations go, but because we started so late, and I had just received the abilities needed to update the site, I decided to set it a little lower. We got over the original goal pretty quickly, and we're already well on our way to the new goal, and if we pass that up soon, i'll raise it a little more.

Thanks again for your donations to the site. :drink:

No worries, I will donate more if this site needs it, also keeps my wife off my back for not spending the money on E-Bay padding my already extensive John Stallworth collection, she actually undestands and approves me sending and spending money to thelp his site, bless her heart!!!!

We've actually received 45 dollars in donations since the new "Donate" plugin was added, and we had 130 dollars in donations prior to that. So, the current donation total is going to be updated to $175, therefore, we'll be moving in on a new goal very soon. I've put some of the money towards forum maintenance and updates, and some towards contests, and I can't stress how much I appreciate everyone's help.

:tt03: Awesome, I love this site, you know there is no other site like this, where else can you go and enjoy the fact that a site not be prejudice. Just think of this on Steelers Forum we hate all trolls equally, so that means we must be well diverse!!!!!

Thanks, Chad. We're atop of our goal already, and i'll extend it a little more soon. All donations are appreciated and go right back into the forum for contests, promotions, giveaways and upgrades/maintenance so it's appreciated GREATLY. Just select "Donate" on the navigation bar at the top of the screen. It's a red link.

Just sent this weeks contest winner his $25 dollar gift certificate, and that's thanks in part to all of your generous donations. It helps with contests, upgrades and maintenance, and we couldn't do it without your help! Thanks again everyone.

$225 is good, I have no doubt we'll hit the $300 goal by year-end. :thumbsup:

Yes. I've abused that specific donation "counter" and opted for the automated counter below it. It says "Donation Goal".
