I have the 2017 Support ribbon when I supported back in January. Am I included in the potential Geek Gold bonus this year? I usually support in December when they put up the request, but decided to back again immediately in January for the first time.
One thing that makes me question this is that I can no longer acces my “viewed” subscriptions unless I pledge $25.
In your profile I examined the GeekStuff tab. I clicked on the GeekGold collected amount to see the detail.
I interpret that you gave a $40 contribution on 2016-12-01 08:22:07. That surpassed the $25 level required to see "viewed" items. That capability expires after one year, which ended recently.
In the meantime you also contributed $15 on 2017-01-08 08:25:24. Simply adding another $10 right now would put you above the $25 dollar threshold (the contributions are combined) to be eligible once again for "viewed" privileges. Even so, that too would expire on the 1 year anniversary of the $15 contribution (you would drop below the threshold).
Conclusion: $10 works in the very short term. $25 dollars lasts another year from now.
