I updated the code last night to allow the supporter badges to show the year you contributed in. Derk and I thank you for the support which makes running this site a lot easier.

Good idea. I think the badge needs a redesign though.

Yup, thanks for the reminder Aldie! I know running a site like this takes a lot of time and effort, and definitely isn't cheap. Thanks for the great site!

Great way to remember to support a great site. I do agree that it is a bit long, however.

Out of curiosity, is this site a full time job for Aldie and Derk? (do they earn their living doing it?)

This was discussed in a GS, though I can't remember which one. The bottom line is there is excess money available (though maybe not after the new server) but that they do not draw a salary from the site. The both have day jobs.

Aldie, you could drop the BGG from the front of the badge, so it just read Supporter 04 05.

But what of contributors before '04? Or contributors who have paid twice (I have), but apparently in the same year? I'm bummed because I don't see '03 '04 or '04 '04.

I didn't have the system set up to track user donations back in '03 unfortunately. I am getting the logo redesigned to not be as long on the screen. I'm not sure I can fit a multiple donator status for a single year. Lemme think about it.

Both Aldie and I have real jobs. The amount of money we make total (less operating costs and new hardware when required) is still quite low. If someone was to use all the net income from the site as their primary income, I can assure you he'd be well and truly below the poverty line. Neither of us knows what the future holds, but I can assure you the 'Geek will be around for the forseeable future!
