    So...now I can no longer send donations to Baldy via PayPal, and as I'm not giving my credit card numbers and there's no longer a PayPal option I can't donate at all, so you are losing money. Another well thought through initiative! :D

    More seriously though, please reintroduce a PayPal option and make the banner optional.

    It's not a showstopper for me but I'm not a fan of the recognition. I've never really asked for credit for contributing and I'm guessing I'm not alone.

    Yes! We . . . I mean, They should get special recognition and benefits too!

    ETA: Super Supporters should also get hookers and blow mailed directly to our . . . I mean their home addresses!

    lol... yes. Someone wasn't supposed to find that page and post a link yet :). We were still about 24 hours away on some fixes (which we're still doing) and wanted to test with mods first... so yea cat is out of the bag. We're still not entirely sure how the first person found it. Anyway, we're working on it in real-time now and will do a reasonable announcement and link soon enough. Appreciate how enthusiastic everyone is, really makes a huge difference to have the supporters!

    I guess for the $5/month then saved...we get our numerous requests for a PayPal option ignored and/or tacitly declined. Oh well!

    we're going to setup PayPal, we're trying to figure out what's up with the amex charges as it's working for most people. We'll do PayPal next :)

    Another idea: Instead of having a supporter banner, why not implement a default "freerider" banner for all inmates that disappears if they donate?

    You may have noticed, @rudy1220, that I tend to be rather direct. There are those around me who see this as a character flaw; I prefer to think that it's just a more efficient way to communicate. And I suck at typing.

    Thanks for addressing my post above, and I'll look forward to contributing when you're "officially" up and running. And thanks to all of you pre-mature contributors for giving this some visibility. You know who you are.

    I signed up to be a supporter, but ADV doesn't know my address... so where's the tee shirt gonna go? I didn't see any option to add personal info while purchasing?

    I don't know if I was first to use it but @Team Vegas found it on his profile page and posted it in the valley thread in Jo momma. The horse was out of the barn at that point.

    Good question... We're going to reach out to everyone for their shipping address once we're ready to do that. We will probably solicit some feedback on designs and options first so there will be some time before we send it out, but it might be a real nice delivery right around the holidays :)
