    Thumbs up Donations are welcome

    Recently, you may have noticed some new features to our forum. The addition of blogs and ability to post videos have really helped our forum to stand out amongst many others. As you know, our aim is to provide a top-rate community where all can feel encouraged and welcome to share our experiences, thoughts and ideas. To do this, I have spent my own resources ensuring that the programming, development and maintenance of the forum is top-notch. While this has been a rewarding endeavour for me, the costs on my end are starting to add up. This is why you will notice that we are now an affiliate for Full Tilt Poker. I have also added a donate option to the site.

    We will never require membership fees for the site. But, if you like what we've done so far and want to support our growth, please feel free to show your appreciation. While these are simple ways for us to slowly recoup some of our costs, other methods are currently in discussion, including a merchandise section. If this is able to take off, and enough donations come in, we can start to be even more creative with our marketing, and possibly even add freeroll tournaments just for being a participating member of the site.

    As you can see, we have many goals for the site. We would love for you to be a part of achieving them, as we wouldn't be where we are today without your current support. We look forward to any and all contributions, and are excited about the growth to come!

    Scott,

    The ten spot I gave you at Dana's was a donation. I will give ten more next time I see you.

    I want to be at least in the silver level.

    Thanks

    Scott have you ever considered giving people a second option for donations??? Most of us have Full Tilt accounts but not everyone has a Pay Pal account.. You should consider making a BadBeats screen name on Full Tilt for donation purposes and when the account gets enough funds you could sponsor your own free roll.. Just a thought... I know it would be a lot easier to transfer a couple of bucks from time to time on Full Tilt after a big or small win then to use PayPal... You would also still have a record for that individuals donation status...

    Just a thought...

    Another excellent idea Ben. Did you stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night by chance?

    We have a new Full Tilt affiliate account set up, and the account name is xxxxxxxxxx.
