Ladies, Gentleman, or (Other),

It is time once again to refill the coffers. As you may know, Operatorchan is completely funded by its users. So far this model has been very successful, with enough money coming in to pay for quality servers that keep us running error-free.

I have detailed the current financial situation here:

The short version is that we have enough in reserve to get us through the end of 2015. Stalwart OPERATORs have already begun pledging their hard earned cash towards extending that timeframe into the glorious future.

But we need more! My primary goal is to raise the $800 or so it costs to run opchan annually. More would be great, but that'd be a great start.

Towards that end, we will be offering prize packs to the top 3 donators and 1 wildcard to be drawn from everyone else. We are currently working on the prize packs but rest assured they will grow as we amass more stuff:

1st Prize: 2 Banana Mags handcrafted by Mammoth, 1 Nikon M-223 scope

2nd Prize: 1 Banana Mag, 1 Haley Strategic disruptive grey t-shirt

3rd Prize: 1 Banana Mag

Wildcard: TBD

We also have in the works a standard prize for everyone who donates at least $10 - more details soon. More items WILL be added to these prize packs.

Donation Drive will run through September 30th. On October 1st we will award the prizes and draw the wildcard.

You can donate through:

Paypal - donations@operatorchan.org (or use the donate button)
Google Wallet - jedidachshund@operatorchan.org

Any other methods, please contact me and we'll work it out. If you want to be considered for the prizes PLEASE include your trip if applicable OR good contact info. Also let me know if you want your trip/donation amount hidden, otherwise we will be publishing the donations so far weekly. If you don't have a trip you'll just appear as OPERATOR.

Please use this thread for questions or email me. Thanks in advance for your generous donations!

I somewhat anticipated this and ordered 50 winter patches. There should be enough.

They are exclusive. Any winter patches not claimed during the donation drive will be scattered across both poles so that only the worthy may find them.

I'll claim mine, you need an address I take it?
>> No. 5976 ID: e7f332

Yeah I am going to round up mailing addresses once the drive is nearing completion. If you send the info to me that will simplify things.

Will do a big update this weekend.

I got a $20 donation on the 17th with no contact info... do you want to be anon? Do you want a patch?
>> No. 5979 ID: 0cb322
T'was me. Ike. I'm no longer tripcoding, and someone else can have the patch. I said I'd donote, but buying a car unplanned and other bills kept me from doing so until now.

Awesome, thanks!

10 more days till the Donation Drive ends so I got my lazy ass in gears too. I was just going to prep 3 more to fill the order for the donation drive I went ahead and sand off the 2 extra ones too.

Going to wait till they are dried then it's tape and spray. Should have them done mid week. We gonna need people's address soon. Also I am going to check on the PBE Winter Patch's status.

It's over!

Winner at the last minute is someone who didn't put their trip in the note but tried to paypalget dubs... it would have been more impressive if you figured out the fees so that the final number was all twos, but I'm not complaining.

I am compiling all the addresses to give to the PBE store who will ship out your patches. I don't know exactly how long that will take. Prize packs for the top 3 will go out soon as well! I know I've got tactikool's address but 222 guy and Prospero make sure you've sent them to me so Mammit and I can start sending you swag.

I will be drawing the wildcard this evening, so stand by for that!

Thanks everyone for a successful donation drive. Opchan is financially in good shape for the next year+, I anticipate doing this again this time next year to ensure we stay that way. It's a testament to the dedication of the users that we are able to stay on the interwebs completely by virtue of user support.

Through random number generation:

Im Bob Dole is the wildcard winner!

22222 guy has let me know he doesn't want any prizes, so that means the top three are:

>> No. 5994 ID: b89631
Oh dang, I got ruse cruised...22222 guy had me thinking he knocked me out of the running for the Nikon and, more importantly, that sweet, sweet second banana clip.

Thanks 222222man! I'll pitch in $25 more to feel like I earned it.

Holy crap, what is the wildcard prize?

Are we centralize all the prize then ship it out or send prize from different places converging on winner's location?

I am glad you like it but I have a confession to make, I was cleaning up the garage and noticed I use a different rattle can to paint those banana clipz. They were painted with regular yellow not the sun yellow :(

I have dishonored OpChan will commit sudoku

Well, make some in sun yellow for next years donation drive and I'll have a little color collection going.
>> No. 6011 ID: c3e6b2
Sorry busy weekend with in-laws and stuff, got the banana clipz re-packed and going to drop it off tomorrow for USPS.

Jedi gave me a funny idea painting a 5 or 10 rounder the area that would be covered by the mag well yellow and so when the mag is in the rifle it's just plain looking mag but when you have it out it's banana clipz

Yeah I'm not having any luck getting ahold of him, which is very odd as he is usually very responsive. Anyone have alternate contact info for him? Send it to me, don't post it here.

Winter patches a no go?

We're still working on contacting him, hopefully he isn't dead. If we can't get him by the new year I will get the patches made another way.
>> No. 6020 ID: bfcaff

He's alive and was just tied up by work, patches should start flowing in the new year

We just paid for January and have enough for all of 2016 + a few months.
