We just added a new feature to the site: a paypal donation option. You don't have to give us money. It's a donation, so it is voluntary and regardless of whether you do donate or not is irrelevant because the site will still be around even if we get only a penny. We do ask that if you like the site, feel free to throw us a couple bucks here and there. It helps pay for hosting and the like.

On a side note Andy has made some minor changes to the site. If you go to a person's profile it will show all the groups that they are a part of in a little area, and you can also go to those group pages. Also, the Items Earned (the title) now links back to the bookstore. There you have it!

On a side note, anyone who donates more than $10,000 will get a free critique from me, and maybe some points for the bookstore.

On a more serious note, any amount to help pay for hosting is greatly appreciated. Every penny goes towards the site.

I would donate, but I don't have a PayPal account and if I did, my parents would see who I am donating it to and would ban me from using this site. So, what's more important to you, money or me?

Um, do you REALLY want me to answer that?

Haha, no, it's you. I'd feel like crud if you never came back.

Well you can always mail us some money . J/K. I mean if you wanted to you could, but yeah .

Why won't they let you use Paypal? That just seems silly to me. It's the most secure way to transfer funds because the banks don't even interact. Paypal deals with it and neither party sees the other's info.

I'm fourteen and totally broke.
But maybe one day when I'm rich and famous.

Understandable. There is NO obligation to donate. None whatsoever. If you can't or don't want to, then don't. We won't think any differently of you .
