Donors of Funds Badge by [May-lea]


This is a list of Elftown members who have voluntarily contributed to enable Elftown's main computers to handle the expansion of Elftown.


<img:stuff/2237_wiki_help_9y7vcgcflr5.jpg>


The help donations mean


1. Elftown, as a part of the Elfwood project, is a non-profit project.

2. The expansion of Elftown and need of always improving hardware and maintenance of existing material means an expense that can not be covered "with air", but with money.

3. All the funds are used to improve computers and replace obsolete or burnt pieces, allowing the free service given to Elftowners to be maintained. See [Elftron] to see Elftown's hardware!

What does a donor get?


So you know what the donations are for: the money is used to make Elftown's hardware better for everyone. But there are also other things only the donor gets in return:

1. You get the badge for Donors of Funds: what a nifty little squirrel! ;) <img:img/new/DonnorMon1.gif>

2. You get the 'Elftown donor' image on your house.  <img:elftown_donor.jpg>

3. You will be able to use coloured letters on your house!
Aside from black, you would then be able to make your letters the following colours:

4. You get our gratitude!!

(However if you would like to donate, but not to have the badge or image, this is of course also possible.)

Also, you could donate in someone elses name: this means the one you are donating for will receive all things mentioned above as a gift from you.
Of course you would still be the one we would be gratefull to ;) 
This is a nice feature when you would like to give another Elftown-member a birthday-gift or a Christmas present for instance.

There is a minimum of 10 euro to get the right to all things mentioned on the page. You can donate less than 10 euro, but that won't give you that right. There is no maximum to a donation of course ;)
So, you can donate the amount of money of your choosing, but if you want to get something in return other than our gratitude you would have to at least donate 10 euro.

If you have donated 20 euro or more, you will get the limitation on your descriptions removed. It doesn't mean that we'll allow totally hideous presentations, but "double-donors" are allowed to make a little bigger descriptions.

The normal limits are:
maxlines-description:400 (number of newlines)
maxsize-description:20000 (Number of characters in the description)
maximages-description:10 (Number of images, except the tiny images shown on nonimages)

2008-11-18 [Nite_Owl]: Damn. Guess I should have waited to donate, huh? :P

2008-11-18 [Hedda]: The earlier you donate, the longer time you possess the benefits of being a donor. <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

And you actually don't get more wealth just because the dollar is worth more, unless you have the wealth in dollars or income that will stay the same even if the dollar goes up. If you had the money invested in a house, you would have had to sell more of it to get 10 euro now. Same goes if you had stocks, oil, zinc or a pre-paid rent for a capsize ship.

2008-11-18 [Mordigen]: It's was 12.50 when I donated back in 06' too, so it's been at that rate for a lil while now. Hopefully it wont start going down again. (as in dollar value going down)

2008-11-18 [Hedda]: No, it has definitely not been like that for a while:
http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=USDEUR=X#chart1:symbol=usdeur=x;range=2y;indicator=volume;charttype=line;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=on;source=undefined

So in between the dollar has cost less than 0.64 euro (equal to that 1 euro = $1.56 USD)

2008-11-18 [Mordigen]: ......
ok.
I have no clue what that means XD Exchange rate explanations and charts are completely lost on me, as it is all greek to me -- I don't even try to understand it anymore, lmao, I just look up what it is when I need to know the current exchange rate ;P 

All I know is when I donated, my credit card was billed $12.56 USD. and that's all i know *Snorts*

2008-11-18 [Jeccabee]: I think that's what it was when I dontated too...but honestly I dont remember. LOL And I'm with you Mordigen, I just look up the exchange when I need to know.

2008-11-18 [Hedda]: [Mordigen]: It means that 3 months ago, an Elftown donation cost $15.60 USD.

2008-11-18 [Doormat]: When I donated it was $39 ¯\(º_o)/¯

Guess the exchange rate is crashing down.

2008-11-19 [Skydancer]: nods, the rate has been moving around quite a bit. On Second Life, there is a real value currency that can be recovered in any number of real world money and its been moving up and down between the various countries. A few months ago, I could get $60 for 30 british pounds, now its $47 and some change.

2008-11-19 [Hedda]: [Doormat]: But you paid a double donor donation... (And maybe in Canadian dollars?) <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

[Skydancer]: Yes, the Sterling has dropped into the Atlantic ocean almost like the Icelandic krona. I think it's because Atlantis is under attack every week (See the sci-fi channel), that people don't trust the Atlantians' money anymore... <img:stuff/sutN.gif>

2008-11-19 [Alexi Ice]: ....Uh....ok ^^ Thanks for answering my question! 12.50 is perfect...(has no idea what else is going on) *My brain hurts...*

2008-11-19 [Doormat]: Heh, the amazing Canadian dollar when the CAN:US exchange rate was 0.70. Oh well. No regrets.

2009-04-14 [Flisky]: *pulls a "I feel stupid" face* How do we donate in someone else's name?

2009-07-16 [Aeolynn]: so if you want to donate the basic amount it is 12.50$ in american money?

2009-07-22 [Hedda]: It's about that. It will charge you the exact amount automatically.

2011-03-21 [Alexi Ice]: [kians mummy] wants to know what the amount would be for English Pounds?

2011-03-24 [Pillowthief]: I believe you mean euros.

2011-03-24 [SilverFire]: No, I'm pretty sure she means Pound Sterling. It makes sense that she wants to know what 10 euros would be in Sterling if she's English.

2011-03-25 [Pillowthief]: By this time (AD), everyone is english. Sterling is a vague reference. Might as well count it as Ruples.

2011-03-25 [SilverFire]: Riiiiight. ¬_¬

2011-03-26 [Pillowthief]: I think Chuck Norris would back me up on this one.
