So it's been about a week since I made my donation to the annual support drive. It's the first time I've been able to do it without Dave Ramsey smacking me upside the head. I've been looking forward to supporting the site. But in my blurb of why you support the site, I wrote "Because whether you financially support what you use can be weaponized in an argument in RSP."

I have been hitting f5 for a week. And I haven't seen it once. We are being censored. We don't exist.

Thru some browser glitch, I didn't even get to put in a blurb.

However, I saw it the prior time I donated.

I'm pretty sure they're selected by hand. You need to gush over BGG or be funny.

I doubt that. I do a lot of page refreshes and saw many comments. So many that it seems like manually selecting them would be a huge task.

I supported because… "Hey, I found the blurb entry this year!"
- Eric Selander (grithog)


I supported because… "Favorite internet site by far. And the 1-Player Guild is the friendliest group on the planet. "
- Kevin Erskine (kerskine)

I supported because… "Best website !"
- Sajuro (Sajuro)

I supported because… "Because the 1PG Guild is the finest place on the Internet. However, my wallet remains unconvinced..."
- Jonathan Arnold (jdarnold)

I supported because… "Because I actually belong here."
- Christy Risser-Milne (mac03579)

I supported because… "Because I like Board Games. Duh."
- Scott Von Rohr (scottdawn1)

(I could do this all day and probably not get a repeat).

Why are you donating money to a for-profit business that makes millions?

Junior covered it, it gives you extra leverage on RSP!*

Wait, why are you asking that in a weirdly if slightly accusatory way?!



*Actually I haven't seen that leveraged for years.

Not getting the weirdness or accusatoryness. I'm really curious why somebody would do that.

It's weird in that you didn't ask anyone else in this thread who donated :p

But anyways, it's to voluntarily pay for value received. They make a product, and ask that we pay what we want if we want. So I did.

Oh, yours was just the last one I saw. Probably shouldn't have quoted at all.

So you paid because you were asked? I wonder if all businesses should be doing that.

I think our good friend bbblackwell would be a great opportunity to ask about people supporting what they readily use.

Fair enough, and sorry to snap ><

It's the kind of thing that's rad - if you know it would work. I wouldn't build a business model on it tho'

Now if only they wouldn't run cons for the benefit of their personal friends.

(Speaking of Second-class citizens, anybody not from the DFW area is a real second-class citizen on BGG)

That figure is revenues. I have no idea how much BGG really "makes" in the sense of profits.
