There have been some recent attempted donations, but the money didn't seem to go through. Our donation preference is PayPal.

If you have trouble donating via our PayPal Donate application located above the forum, private message me for the email information so you can send the donation manually from PayPal's website.

Thanks to everyone who donated so far (and attempted).

It does indeed help this board continue to be the best. In fact, our forum has been the #1 destination for Steelers discussion for most of it's time on the internet, and the new features we continue to implement continues to further Steelers Fever from any other Steelers message board.

I added some arcade packs with recent donations, and i'll begin looking into an advanced forum search system to improve search functionality. That's something i've wanted to do for a long time now.

Every attempt you've made actually DID go through. :sofunny:

I think some users are unaware the payment method is PayPal, even though PayPal also accepts CC and Debit payments. In the donation list it shows every "attempted" donation, and I have to check the account to ensure that the donation actually went through.

Technically, you DID use PayPal. You just used PayPal's "don't have a PayPal?" option, which allows users to donate using their CC's or DC's.

I was told to post in the donation thread once or twice a week to keep things flowing. I've actually put $125 of my own money towards this years and last years goal. Some of it helped with contests, and most of it was used for arcade packs for our arcade. My eventual goal is to update the vbulletin forum version to a newer version. That'll make the forum safer for everybody, and maybe even a little faster.

Just donated to the site. I've been spending a lot of time here. I really appreciate all the time and effort that goes into something like this from everyone involved with Steelers Fever. Lots of cool people here, and tons of fun to be had. Nothing made me appreciate this more than the Timmy Lumber fiasco.

Thanks again to everyone who's donated to the site. Every penny goes right back into Steelers Fever, and i'm hoping to install a newer version of Vbulletin without losing any features or posts. We have the funds to make it happen now, and i'm looking into it with the owner as I type this. I'll keep everyone updated, of course, but if there's a chance we'll lose anything, i'll probably opt with just keeping our current version and working on adding features provided in newer versions through board and template mods.

I tend to thank all users who donate in the same fashion,

Thank you for your generous donation.

Because EVERY donation received is a generous, and if we've received a donation and have announced the exact amount, I truly apologize. That's information that I tend not to share. It doesn't matter how much you send us, the fact that you contributed money from your own pockets to help improve Steelers Fever is all that matters to me.

Now, users can announce how much they've donated on their own will, but I won't. At least I try not to. However, if you were referring to what we're using the money for, i'm sorry, but I want to keep those who have contributed to the website in the loop. I'd like for them to be able to keep up with what the money is being used for, or what we're planning to do with it.

In this case, my intentions are to improve the forum in any way possible with what we've received, and I've actually made a lot of ground over the past couples of months. Everyone seems happy, so i'm happy. I hope you're happy too.

Sorry for writing a novel, just wanted to make sure you understood me clearly.

Also, one thing that I wanted to do this time around was enter every contributor into a drawing for a Steelers item. Possible a Steelers Fever T-Shirt or something Steelers Fever branded. I know this forum was selling T-Shirts under the old owner, and I have access to those files, so I could always put together something we call a "Care Package" here in my hometown, and send it out to the winner of the drawing.

It's just an idea right now, but it's something i'd like to do sometime in the future.

thanks zcoop for the generous donation! I chipped in a little myself, and i'll be uploading a new arcade pack and updating the website later tonight. I know you arcade players have probably been waiting a while, so i'll make sure to give you some new stuff to play.

I've been trying. Most of the games are arcade packs I buy through IBPArcade, but some of them are just basic games. I'd like to fish out some of the ones that don't work well and stick with the quality games, and Ps vs. Zs was one of the ones on the list. I requested the game conversion and hopefully one of the developers pull through on it.

Those are the contributors so far this year, and the Steelers haven't even played a single regular season game. :chuckle:

We have the greatest community of Steelers fans in the world, and i'll continue to introduce new features for our users, new tech for our tech-junkies, some new arcade games for our gamers, and some streaming options for those who live outside of Pittsburgh.

Thanks everyone who has helped us along our goal. I have no doubt the goal will be met this regular season.

If you need a stream, make sure to message me. We have a link that will be good for 16 weeks. If you want a game, message me. I'll see what I can do for you. Hell, if you have ANY suggestions at ALL, message me. A lot of what you've seen, including the Twitter-style tags up above, were user suggested. Just hit me up, i'll help you out.

When you install an entire pack, you can almost expect 50% of them to be so-so, and 10% just pure shit. If a good 40% of the pack is good, i'm happy. Let me know if you have any problems.

We met the original goal rather quickly and a lot of contributors suggest we extend it. We actually had this same thing happen last year when we met the goal within a month. :chuckle:

Lots of great members here who really care for the forum. You can see the donation progress at the top of the forum. We're about 84% (about $75). I donated a little earlier this morning.

About $52 away from finishing the 2013 goal just in time for 2014. One thing I want to make a point of doing is either improve or remove our experience system. I'm not what everyone thinks of it, and it does take up some processing power. If everyone thinks it's worth holding onto, i'll try and improve it to make it worth the while, but if not i'll remove it and look into something from DB Tech that I've been interested in for a while.

Now, I didn't want to get your hopes up with something i'm unsure of, but i'm thinking about entering all 2013 donors in a raffle to win one of these:

http://www.steelersfever.com/images/ts01.jpg

Now, this isn't official yet. I'd have to talk a few things over with the owner, but it is a possibility. If the shirt looks good and things go well, i'll print some more up and send them out on a more regular basis. I just need to find the logo file, and i'll be fine. May even hold a logo contest sometime in the future.

Now, only $20 remaining! We've actually had a couple $20 donations in the past couple of days, and only one more remains!

Thanks again to everyone who's chipped in, and thanks to Buddha Bus for giving me the t-shirt idea.
