It's that time of year again - our End-of-Year Support Drive! This is your last chance to get the 2012 Patron Badge.

Please consider adding a 2012 Patron Badge to your profile if you don't have one already. Of course, if you already have your '12 badge (thank you very much!) and would like to help us further (thank you very VERY much!), any additional support you give will be counted toward our total of new supporters for December.

For $15 or more you get the 2012 Patron badge. If you increase your support to $25 you will also be able to customize what ads you see on the site.

As has become tradition during these support drives, we are giving ALL users with a 2012 Patron Badge a chunk of bonus GeekGold! How much? That depends on how many new supporters we get during this Support Drive! Every new supporter will add one geek cent to the total. Last year we had over 7000 new supporters during the drive - that would be over 70 GeekGold for ALL people with a Patron badge. But wait, there's more! If we get at least 7500 new supporters, then everyone's bonus will double! That's at least 150 GeekGold when we reach 7500 new supporters.

Starting this year we are also giving patrons special microbadges for supporting the site! By clicking the designated link on your profile, you will be given a special microbadge for the cumulative total amount you have given the site during the calendar year. If you don't want the microbadge for any reason, just don't click that link!

Update Microbadges

Here are the different microbadge levels:
mb Copper: $15
mb Silver: $25
mb Gold: $50
mb Platinum: $100
mb Herculean: $200
mb Ultimate: $400

Please take some time to consider how much time you spend here and how much you value the amazing community and wealth of information the site provides. You pay for your cable, you pay for your newspapers and magazines, you pay for the movies you watch. You probably pay more than $15 a year for any of these - in fact you probably pay more than that each month for them! What we are asking for is a very small amount by comparison to help ensure that the best source of game information in the world continues to thrive!

BoardGameGeek, RPGGeek, and VideoGameGeek are all free to use, and your support is entirely voluntary. Let me stress this - No user should ever be made to feel like a second class citizen because they do not have a patron badge. Different users support the site in different ways. It is not all monetarily, but it is all appreciated. But one thing is certain: It has been your support, financial and otherwise, that has allowed this site to become what it is today.

Thank you all again for your generous support!

I want to know how the 2013 badge is going to fit for the people with support badges dating back to '04.

The announcement banner at the top of the website still links to last year's Support Drive thread. Just FYI

Is there any way that people who refuse to create a PayPal account can support the site?

I think you can mail them a check.

"If you'd like to mail your payment, please make checks payable to:
BoardGameGeek, LLC
7930 Xavier Ct.
Dallas, TX 75218

Make sure to put your username on the check so we can update your account with "Site Supporter" status."

You can pay via paypal without making an account as long as you pay by credit/debit card.

You can also click on the Support BGG link on the bottom of each page to get the address where you can mail a check.

The running total counts up new supporters in December - but if you want microbadges, they are cumulative for 2012, and you will get a bonus as well.

I know I've given more than $400 in multiple payments over the course of this year, does it only count lump sums?

Cheques won't work, as they don't exist in Sweden. And I haven't found a PayPal link that doesn't want you to select a password, retype it, and give an email address.
