I'm on a very important quest...think "Lords of Waterdeep".
Instead of cubes I need Geek Gold, 15 bucks is kinda steep.
Presidential debates? I need to vote on the Golden Geeks!
But I've tipped away my Geek Gold over the last few weeks.

So this is my humble request, for each fellow BGG'er...
Help me fulfill my dream to be become an esteemed voter.
I would be forever indebted, and maybe break down and cry.
But of course I would too embarrassed to tell my wife why.


Thanks a lot,

Todd

So start posting some reviews, session reports, images, videos... that's how GeekGold is earned. What's with all the handout requests?

To support the site it's not that steep.

Seriously. If 15 bucks is too much for you to give the site, then perhaps you should learn to live without an avatar.

He registered after the big supporter badge giveaway last year... and the poem was catchy. That was worth 0.25.

Other than that, if you ask for geek gold and you don't have a supporter badge and should (every Christmas they do a supporter drive, where you're an idiot if you don't buy a supporter badge)... GRRRRR....

Technically, all supporters earn the supporter bonus regardless of when they got their supporter badges, so there's no reason to wait until the supporter drive to send money. That said, I'm missing my '12' badge, too, and for essentially the same reason: I like to see my contribution push that little bar graph just a little bit further to the right.

I have made some Geek Gold, but like I've said in my poem - I have given it all away. I think of myself as a tall, Canadian Robin Hood. If you don't want to tip me any Gold - that's fine.


Thanks!

Tips received:14.80
Tips given: 10.90

Seriously this user has given away 73% of all the GG he's ever been given. And that's before he's bought a micro badge for himself.
Give him a break!
(I'm on 63% but that's with lots of kind tips and having been on the site longer.)

Todd get yourself over to No Geek Left Behind... (How to get an Avatar) and give then a poem for an avatar and in future be a bit more selfish with the GG .

There are also lots of ways of contributing to the site and getting GG, financial support is just one way to contribute:

I actually gave away 100% of my Geek Gold prior to this thread. I love doing that, people usually deserve the tips. I did a rather nice review of Africana and only received $2 or something because I rushed it out. My daughter was sick, but the next day I fleshed it out and edited it to make it a full review. They didn't give me any more Geek Gold though

Thanks for all the support so far, I appreciate the help and the BGG community

Thank you everyone - I greatly appreciate the generosity


I'm enjoying a Thanksgiving Monday with my daughter - watching cartoons. She's very excited about the Geek Gold too!
