The response this year has been amazing! I don't know what to say - we've only ever gotten close to 3000 new Supporters in the drives of years past. This year you all have shattered that goal with ease!

Next year we're going to have to shoot even higher! How high? I guess that depends on how much higher you all can push it this year!

As extra incentive, for every new Supporter past 3000, I'm going to give EVERYONE with a 2010 Supporter badge .05 - so for example, if we end with 4000 new Supporters (ie 1000 past the goal) then all 4000 of you AND everyone else who already had a 2010 Supporter badge will get a bonus 50 (1000 * .05 ) extra .

In addition, ten randomly chosen users with a 2010 Supporter badge will win a commemorative 2010 Supporter microbadge.
 



Thanks for making this the best year-end Supporter drive ever! You guys rock!

Can we change the graph to have some open space?

It makes a better incentive than a filled bar.

Great idea! If you want to be really sneaky, constantly update the rightmost number so that it's the next multiple of 500 or whatever, so that the graph always looks almost full...

Not necessarily 50 - but EVERYONE with a 2010 badge will get the bonus, where the bonus equals .05 x the number of new supporters past 3000. Currently at 3005 so the bonus is 0.25 for every 2010 badge holder. The more new supporters we get, the more bonus everyone gets.

Holy cow, Scott, you and your team should really be proud. To provide a service that people value this highly is a noble achievement and a terrific contribution to the world-wide-internets.

Wow, end-of-year goal reached on December 8th.
That is impressive!
Derk and Aldie will be lighting cigars with $100 bills in no time.

Congrats, Scott! I wish I'd found this site sooner...although I'm sure my pocketbook is glad I waited until last year.

But don't be fooled by the radio, the TV, or the magazines. They'll show you photographs of how your life should be but they're just someone else's fantasies.

I really like the idea of the bonus GeekGold. I hope it works to drive even more supporters.

It's a success well deserved. The internet would be a poorer place without this site and the community that it has built. Here's to the Geek!

This is the first site I've ever been inclined to "pay for" ... and well worth it. Thanks for providing the internet equivalent of a water cooler for us to huddle around and share our common interests.

There are some BGGeekers you should have a look at who have lent a hand in the membership support drive.

Maybe they are deserving of a special microbadge for "going above the call of duty expected of a BGGeek".
