The number for the BGG Supporter Drive hit 2012 around 6:00 PM (Eastern USA) tonight.

New BGG patron #2012 should get a special award.

That seems somewhat arbitrary.

A special prize for new BGG patron # 122112 would also be nice...

...but if there is no award given for that number, it won't be the end of the world.

It's a gaming site. At 2000, all donations would stop as everyone positions to out click the next.

And it would cause the pause next year as well.

1. There is nothing wrong with a pause, you said stop before and that would be bad.
2. It would be broken by mail-ins.
3. BGG likes to change the rules, which is why it is .01/user this year when it was .02/user last year.

The size of the bonus hasn't been discussed either "Here's your wooden nickel, don't spend it all at the same place."

Exactly.

Intermittent reinforcement can be a powerful motivator...

…and unexpected rewards are often the most gratifying.
