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!

Just threw in 15. Also I shall donate in song!

♪The once was a man from Nantucket who saw a fetching bucket and said, "I'm going to fuck it!"

He drilled a hole, stuck in his pole, but got a splinter in his center and died the next winter.♪

Now that should cover server costs for atleast a month. It would have been two but unfortunately I couldn't finish another verse as I can't find anything good that rhymes with corpse to go with a mugger buggering.

During the donation drive we'll be giving away 30 PBE Winter patches. Here are the rules for it

> Donate $10 or more will get 1 patch
> $20 will get 2 patches and that's max per person for patches (let others have a stab at them too)
> If you already donated over $10 you automatically get a patch
> If you don't wish to take the patch please say so, so others can have their chance at the patch

So if you want the patch best donate now to reserve your patch.

** Special thanks to Romanov he will be handling the delivery and be our contact from the patch maker (he says 2 to 3 weeks before they are ready)

INB4: But on PBE Store patches are only $8, this is for fund raising for OpChan.

Getting low on patches already, but hey, we met our initial goal!

Great job everyone - this secures server moneys for another year + the buffer we already had.

That doesn't mean we can't raise more, though. At this rate we will necessarily have to do another donation drive next summer. Can we fund the site another year into the future?

No fees because I had cash in my PayPal from recent Gunbroker sales.

Got it, added to chart. How many patches do you want? (2,1,0)... also YOU don't get charged the fees, opchan does because we're getting donations or some such bullshit. I don't mind it because if you accept too many fee-free transactions paypal gets suspicious and demands their cut.
>> No. 5958 ID: 9ae271
Well, that sucks. Is there any way for us to donate that avoids the fees? I'll take one patch if you guys have any kicking around. If not, don't worry about it. Interacting with you nut jobs is reward enough, in real life and on line TIGL, I'm looking at you
>> No. 5959 ID: e7f332

Donations via google wallet seem to be fee free, and you can donate using paypal without fees by simply sending funds from your paypal as a gift. However like I said, if that happens too much they get angry and then accounts are frozen and whatnot.

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.

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.

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

Before you do, how are we doing now?

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