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!

<img:stuff/2237_wiki_help_9y7vcgcflr5.jpg>


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:
<img:stuff/ColouredText.jpg>

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)

2004-04-09 [jsun]: Wow! The page looks great! and no sarcasm intended. I would've fixed it myself but because my name hasn't made it up there yet, I thought it wisest not to do any editing.

2004-04-09 [Anonymous]: No worries, you were right :D

2004-09-15 [Kaimee]: hope its ok that i updated it :)

2004-12-03 [Hedda]: Yepp! Great! Thanks Kaimee!

2004-12-04 [Kaimee]: yeup, anonymous beat you to saying that:P Ill keep updating it too, i like seeing who the nice ppl are *glares at everyone not donating*

2004-12-04 [Sunrose]: 2 people are missing their donortitle: [machineman] and [Hackworth] and there are 2 members mentioned in the search that are not in the list of donors on the wiki: [Savien] and [Ðraxar]

2004-12-17 [Asrun]: :( I didn't know we were suppose to get a squirrel too! *bounces* I wanna a squirrel! XD Hehehe!

2004-12-17 [Asrun]: OMG.. And a squirrel just appeared.. WOAH.. O___O

2004-12-17 [Sunrose]: it's magic ;)

2004-12-18 [Asrun]: Must be! This *IS* Elftown, after all...

2004-12-18 [Sunrose]: *giggles* ;)

2004-12-21 [Dark Wizard]: OMG I'm a donnor, I dunno what I donaeted?!

2004-12-21 [spincrus]: MONEY, Gonzalo my friend, MONEY :)

2004-12-22 [Kaimee]: thanks sunny! also, (although i know you will anyway:P) since im on holidays ill assume youll continue updating +fixing this page? ill do the regular updates when i come back though... :)

2004-12-22 [spincrus]: aren't we all squirrels...

2004-12-25 [Sunrose]: [Kaimee]: I fixed it until now, but I haven´t done anything after. Besides, I don´t think it goes that fast ;)

2005-01-22 [spincrus]: We have to get more people to donate. I mean, even 10-20 bucks (USD) isn't a bad donation if you think about it. 2-3 people donate that money, and we've got a new RAM for the server Elftown's running on! (don't know if we need it though). Also, hardware used to burn pretty often a while back, am I right?

2005-01-22 [Sunrose]: I know new hardware has been checked out and that it isn't worth it to buy new hardware compared to the little amount of speed it would gain. It would be a waste of the donations... :(  // And how do you suggest we get more people to donate...? :)

2005-01-22 [spincrus]: Every house, next to the "Member Stats" button, might have a "Donate" button which would directly take the donors to the donation page?

2005-01-22 [Sunrose]: There are two problems there: houses will start to have too many buttons AND if each member would have an extra button on their houses it makes Elftown slower....

2005-01-22 [Hedda]: The plan right now is to buy new motherboard+processor+memory in the end of the next year. Right now the donations are kept as a buffert in case [Elftron] breaks down.

2005-01-22 [spincrus]: I see...

2005-02-24 [It isn't so bad here.]: How many American dollars is a euro?

2005-02-24 [Sunrose]: 1.32049 USD = 1 euro :)

2005-03-01 [jamesipoo]: I just donated ^_^

2005-04-09 [Erykun]: I want to but my mom won't let me sorry [Hedda]

2005-04-11 [djxmonster]: Can members donate by means other than PayPal?

2005-04-21 [Sunrose]: I believe not, but it's pretty easy to donate through Paypal. And also the list of Donors is wrong, I can't figure out the problem though. I saw 2 names that were in the list twice and I removed them. However the search gives 56 people, the list has 58 people in it. One member does not have the 'Elftown Donor' in his house so he won't show up in the search: that still leaves one name too much :/

2005-04-21 [Kaimee]: eep, sorry about that. When the list jumped down 2 people awhile ago i figured it was that both decided not to display that in their houses. Except that [Malidar] is the other person not on the list, and he has moved the Elftown Donor from the titles and orders section of his house, and used it instead in the description. So im going to list him as 'wishing not to have the 'Elftown donor'-image on their house', but should someone just msg him and explain that he could just keep that box ticked for the donor title? :P

2005-04-21 [Sunrose]: Oh I remember him! He first said he didn't want it on his house and then told me to leave it on. Well I put it back, since he does have the badge. Thanks [Kaimee]!

2005-04-21 [Kaimee]: Thassok :P

2005-04-23 [One]: Wow, I feel really elite to be in here (it doesn't take much for me to feel starstruck, but this is beyond...heh) :D

2005-04-29 [Ultiem]: im tempted to make a conversion chart for US donors

2005-04-29 [True, plain and simple]: http://www.xe.com is just as easy.. :)

2005-04-30 [One]: yeah, I just used yahoo conversions to change my GB£ to euros

2005-05-03 [Ihsahn]: paypal should converge it anyhow from US dollors to euros, ten euros is around 13.19 us dollors :)

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: [Ultiem] [Katie Staines] and [Black Dahlia] haven't been added yet o.O

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: and [threelade]

2005-05-18 [Sunrose]: And [enter somethin witty here] and [Vesthrix]. [Black Dahlia] did not receive the Elftown Donor image yet from [Hedda] :)

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: whats that mean?

2005-05-18 [Sunrose]: That [Hedda] doesn't know she donated OR that he hasn't had time yet to give her the stuffs.

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: shes got the pretty colors on her house

2005-05-18 [Sunrose]: Yea I saw, I guess he forgot to also click another box ;)

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: lol oopsies, lol

2005-05-18 [Hedda]: I just missed it, I guess. Strange.

2005-05-18 [Ihsahn]: its ok it happen ;)

2005-05-31 [..and all that jazz]: Whoo, I'm a donor! That's almost donut!!!

2005-06-15 [kirst]: i hvnt been added yet :(

2005-06-15 [..and all that jazz]: awwww poor kirsty!!! Well, I know your a donut, and so do ppl who go on yr house lol

2005-06-18 [kirst]: lol i just want the pretty badge lol

2005-06-18 [..and all that jazz]: lmao thats y i donated lol and for the pretty colours lol

2005-06-20 [zepher]: Hey, why am i not in the list? :)

2005-06-20 [Sunrose]: Fixed :)

2005-06-20 [zepher]: Thanks sunny ^_^

2005-06-21 [Sunrose]: No problem! ^_^

2005-07-09 [Ultiem]: [TheEvilHat] and [marchhare] got the donor thing as well

2005-07-09 [Sunrose]: And [Stand Fast], [naughty by nature] and [Mehtar].

2005-07-12 [Ultiem]: lot of donors, must have huge donations :D

2005-07-12 [Sunrose]: I know one who had just 1 euro... >.>

2005-08-07 [Sunrose]: I am at a loss here. According to the membersearchlink I have 9 donors too many (there are 123 donors, but the search shows 122 because 1 did not want to have the Elftown Donor symbol). I have 132 donors, when I should have 123. I doublechecked in Word if I didn't write names twice (with the 'find'-tool) and I checked each added member whether or not they actually donated (only [fritz], [Nevinz] and [duppy] don't have colours, but they have the Elftown Donor symbol). I even checked if the membersearch counted the members right and came to 122 as well. So where do these 9 extra donors come from? O.o

2005-08-07 [Ihsahn]: that was because I accidently got rid of mine

2005-08-07 [Sunrose]: Okay it's back, that still leaves 8 though...

2005-08-07 [Ihsahn]: thank you ^_^

2005-08-08 [djxmonster]: Why don't recent donors have badges? They have the little banner but no badge :/

2005-08-08 [djxmonster]: How about these: [Orestez], [Ðraxar], [TheRogue], [Misty Lady], [Ultiem], [threelade], [Vesthrix], [kirst] .... That should do it :D

2005-08-08 [Sunrose]: Gah! Why do people remove that stuff! Thanks [djxmonster]! I figured it were older donors who removed stuff, but meh I got tired of looking at tons of houses hehe...now badging time :P

2005-08-08 [Sunrose]: Mmm [threelade] had her Elftown Donor thingy and so I still miss 1 =P // Twas [Anonymous]! *spanks*

2005-08-08 [djxmonster]: Oops... I missed that one :P Good job!

2005-08-08 [Sunrose]: Thanks :P

2005-08-10 [Kelaria]: Oh cool! I'm on this list! ^_^ I think I lost my badge in the crash though >.<

2005-08-10 [Sunrose]: I know, I will give them again... // Edit: done -_-'

2005-08-10 [Ihsahn]: I lost my title thingy wah!!!

2005-08-10 [Sunrose]: Fixed! Again...

2005-08-10 [Ihsahn]: it was because of the crash =( o well thankies! *hugs*

2005-08-10 [Sunrose]: Yea, I was missing the other ones again too. I had forgotten. I did a lot of things the last few days O.o'

2005-08-10 [Ihsahn]: yes you did sunny and you do a good job ;)

2005-08-10 [Sunrose]: Ahw thanks :)

2005-08-10 [Ihsahn]: its true o.O no need to thank me

2005-08-10 [Sunrose]: OK *takes it back* =P

2005-08-10 [Ihsahn]: <.<

2005-08-19 [Sunrose]: Missing 2 people again, wth?! 'O.o

2006-01-22 [babycheechee]: hi can l join this plz

2006-01-22 [Sunrose]: If you donate, yes :)

2006-01-22 [spincrus]: Still 2 people missing from the list?

2006-01-22 [Sunrose]: Which list? The listed members, the searchlist or the number 149?

2006-01-23 [spincrus]: I'm talking about this:  2005-08-19 [Sunrose]: Missing 2 people again, wth?! 'O.o

2006-01-23 [spincrus]: :P

2006-01-23 [Sunrose]: Oh, that was in August :P I don't know if the list is really correct now..people remove things from their house and so on :P

2006-05-17 [your a fag]: i still can't change the color

2006-05-19 [M_Sinner]: I don't mean to be a pain or anything (though, I admit, it's what I'm good at), but for some reason the nifty leafy badge dissappeared from my house... and it makes me sad. Also, wasn't there a feature for donors that would allow them to directly upload images onto wikis? I looked through the news, but couldn't find anything on this being removed... (That might just mean that I'm blind). This is less "me complaining" and more "me just wondering what happened."

2006-05-19 [Sunrose]: Maybe someone fixed it before me, but the leaf is there. Wikiprivs you can get whether you have donated or not. You have to request for them and it will depend on if you have violated the Uploading Art Rules in the past :)

2006-05-19 [M_Sinner]: Ah. And there's the problem exactly. I have violated them once or twice. Thank you! ^_^ Oh, and I realize now that my problem was that I was lookingin the wrong place for the leaf. I'm just blind all around! ^_^

2006-07-24 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Exscuse me, I am looking to donate this week, but am not sure how many U.S. dollars that comes out to, could someone help me so I don't screw up when donating?

2006-07-24 [Sunrose]: 12.6830 USD equals 10 Euro :)

2006-07-24 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Thanks alot :)

2006-07-28 [EmeraldGrizzly]: I finally donated, hope it helps Elftron well :)

2006-11-08 [Hedda]: A new much more compact format ;)

2006-11-10 [kittykittykitty]: Awesome ^^ Yay for columns of text :D I sooo need to play with that on a wiki now >.<

2006-11-11 [EmeraldGrizzly]: What is the <> for columns?

2006-11-11 [Sunrose]: <box:width> / </box:width>
You can choose the width, be it 200...300 whatever :)

2006-11-11 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Thanks ;)

2006-11-12 [Hedda]: No, the tags are:
box : "minimum width" (Depends on the browser what that is.)
And then only:
box50, box100, box150, box200, box250, box300

Used like: <box200>This is a box</box200>

2006-11-13 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Oh, thanks much Mayor *bows*

2007-06-11 [Sweet Edith.]: I'm sure this has been asked, but I suppose I'll just ask it again, what's the American dollar equivalent to 10euros?

2007-06-11 [Sunrose]: 10 EUR (EUR) = 13.354 USD (USD) ----- (Edit 29-09-2007: 10 EURO = 14.09200 USD)

2007-09-29 [Kyrinn]: I tried to make a second donation, but it wouldnt let me.. Its paypal to paypal right?

2007-09-29 [Sunrose]: Yes :)

2007-09-29 [nathie]: kyrinn: you are getting SQUIRRELS if you donate! are you sure? BWAHAHAHAHA

2007-09-29 [Kyrinn]: AH!! A squirrel badge? Can I have the badge witht he squirrel in the site of a rifle? XD

2007-09-29 [nathie]: yeah, we should design a special donor-squirrel badge for kyrinn! LOL

2007-09-29 [Kyrinn]: :3 Especially since Ive had to wage war on the squirrel population up here.. lol

2007-09-29 [Kyrinn]: Oil of peppermint? REALLY?? *hugs and kisses* I LOVE YOU! Where were you a few months ago! LOLOLOLOL Do I just need to drip it around where I dont want them?

2007-09-29 [Kyrinn]: *scribbles that all down* Dude I am so trying that. Ill get the real stuff, not to worry. ^_______________^

2007-09-30 [Ihsahn]: Guessing the value of the american dollor continues to go down the shitter :/

2007-09-30 [Kyrinn]: The ones in my back yard are horrid little satanic beasts. They raped my tomato plants, destroyed my parsley and mint with wild abandon and pooped on them, left HUUGE mounds of shit on my deck furniture, tore up a screen window, climbed into the insulation and bitched at me for being in my own house... I will sure try that next summer to keep them away. ^_^

2007-09-30 [Kyrinn]: Alaskan squirrels are in a league of their own.. O.o

and the american dollar sucks..

2007-09-30 [Hedda]: [Kyrinn]: You're having horrid little satanic beast-dollars in your back yard? <img:stuff/mood16-gif.gif> <img:stuff/$-sign-gif.gif> <img:stuff/shadN-gif.gif>

2007-09-30 [Kyrinn]: XD Apparently. Want some satanic squirrels from hell over there?

2007-09-30 [nathie]: @kyrinn: our german squirrels are so good educated and behave always well. :) we have alot of them in our garden. i wonder if that´s a difference?! :)

2007-09-30 [nathie]: HAHAHAHA! did you found something? surely, huh? the net has a solution for everything.

2007-09-30 [Kyrinn]: *starts up a squirrel school* with strict rules. Anyone who poops in anger gets plugged. XD

2007-10-01 [nathie]: artsie-ladie: see, kyrinn is starting her own squirrel school soon and then she´ll surely makes a homepage. then you´ll find something ;P

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: *imagines squirrels in little uniforms at little desks* I dont see that happening.. XD

2007-10-01 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Squirrels love electrical wires also. <img50*0:http://www.elftown.com/stuff/electricsquirrel_23.jpg> Just set up a small power plant in your yard and watch the fun begin. You can even eat them later.

2007-10-01 [Khronos Atmosphaera]: O_O

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: O.o thats one stupid squirrel.. *electrifies her deck fence*

2007-10-01 [Zab]: Aaaawwww...poor stupid squirrel.. O_O

2007-10-01 [Atayemi]: Awww.. ._.

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: Squirrels dont deserve sympathy. they are evil, vile little things. A friend of mine says that the best contact with the squirrels up here is a well placed rock between the eyes. XD

2007-10-01 [Zab]: Now that's mean..they're cute. And you should be nice to cute evil things.

2007-10-01 [Atayemi]: Aaaaws.. I've fed lots of squirrels before and they were quite gentle. :)

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: XD *dies laughing* Oh I dont kill them, lol.. we have humanly taken care of the nasty little monsters, caught them in live traps and taken them away like 5 plus miles. What really got me was them fornicating on the deck, right in view of the window. O.o

2007-10-01 [Zab]: fornicating?
I'm starting to get annoyed at all bats flying in here.. >_> *lets yet another one out*

2007-10-01 [Jitter]: I feel lucky to only have flies to deal with. O_O

We also had frogs last winter but they're rather entertaining than annoying

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: Making more squirrels. :3 It was as if they were saying "LOOK LADY! Im making MORE!" O.o

Bats are freaky. at least we dont get those up here..

2007-10-01 [Zab]: We never had bats before..not a single one..and now I see more bats than birds... O_o *is happy we don't have rabies here at least* XD

2007-10-01 [Zab]: XD ah..thought I recognized the word..x)

2007-10-01 [Jitter]: "LOOK LADY! Im making MORE!"

<img:44166_1164144892.gif><img:44166_1164144892.gif><img:44166_1164144892.gif>

2007-10-01 [Kyrinn]: O.o wow.. that is a lot of bats..

and *heehehehhhehee at Jitterbug* Glad to provide amusement. XD we called the one who was the obvious ringleader WHite Belly. XD XD

2007-10-01 [Janouk]: *cough207watcherscough*
:p

2007-10-03 [Drop Dead Serif]: How about as a feature for donors, something that allows you to permanently be removed from watching this wiki -.-

2007-10-03 [Kyrinn]: You can just click the "Stop watching this wikipage" button at the bottom of this page... :P

2007-10-03 [Pillowthief]: Hmm, thats weird. I thought I stopped watching this wiki. Wtf?

2007-10-03 [Sunrose]: It's probably because you are mentioned below an image, which automatically makes you watch the wiki.
It's related to the new feature of 'latest photo appearance', but [Hedda]'s working that out still..

2007-10-03 [Calico Tiger]: Yeah, same here. There was so much chatter going on that I stopped watching the page just a few days ago. And then it had me start watching it again x_x

Btw, people... Please stop chatting on this page! If you look at how many people are watching it, that's how many people you're spamming with it :) If it has to do with donors and donating, by all means, keep it up! But for the things that are being chatted about, please take it to another wiki page :D

2007-10-03 [Kyrinn]: Well, on that note I DO have something pertaining to the page. :D I tried to make a second donation using paypal but it wouldnt work. Something about me not being authorized? I checked my account and its fine, but no go.

2007-10-04 [Skydancer]: hmmm how odd. I did a donation today an it appeared to go through fine.

2007-10-04 [Kyrinn]: :S Ill check it again later.. Im too tired to want to fuss wit it right now, lol

2007-10-05 [Atayemi]: I still have no idea who donated in my name.. *wants to thank whoever it was* ._.

2007-10-05 [Zab]: I kind of wonder who donated in my name too, but I guess I'll never know :P

2007-10-05 [Sunrose]: It seems (secret) donations have taken a leap as of late ^^'

2007-10-05 [Atayemi]: *nods* They have indeed. It's nice, but it makes you wonder a little too much. :P

2007-10-05 [Zab]: Well, the person who donated to me made it long ago..XD

2007-10-05 [sequeena_rae]: Makes you wonder a little too much? How come, nice person spending their money, I reckon it's all good :D

(yes I've lsot my drunkeness)

2007-10-05 [Sunrose]: Secret Santa's =)

2007-10-05 [sequeena_rae]: Yes! Exactly :)

2007-10-05 [sequeena_rae]: Yes! Right I's off, this scotch smells, byeeee x) (saves me messaging you all spratyl :P)

2007-10-05 [Atayemi]: Yays for secret donating! :D

2007-12-13 [Chaos Sun]: what's the Euro EQ to US Funds?

2007-12-13 [Synsae]: well... I think $1 = 1.5 Euro (or close to)

2007-12-13 [Chaos Sun]: ahh thanks

2007-12-13 [Synsae]: no, that is actually wrong... sorry... that equation puts the Euro valued less than the dollar... which I know is not true... (talking about my equation not Artsie's equation)

2007-12-13 [Synsae]: *begins feeling like an idiot*

2007-12-13 [Synsae]: Artsie... lol... I'm a Business major in college... so I did know it... but if I can pick a defense for myself... it was months ago when we went over that topic about the value of the dollar being weaker than the euro... but that does not defend how I mixed up and put the value of the dollar more than the euro

2007-12-13 [iippo]: All you really did was got it the wrong way round, that's it. Not a big mistake. You still had the numbers pretty much spot on.

2008-02-14 [Pillowthief]: Anybody ever notice that no one has actually updated this wiki with the little asterisk next to the names for the "*donors wishing not to have the 'Elftown donor'-image on their house and who will not appear in the search" thingy?

2008-02-14 [Sunrose]: You just did :P

2008-02-14 [Pillowthief]: :P Crap, now Ive drawn attention to myself and am <sarcastic>alllll allllonnnne</sarcastic> with my little asterisk.
I better enjoy it while it last then. Who knows when some other fool will complain and join me and [Hackworth]'s ranks.

2008-07-18 [Nite_Owl]: I think the crash a little while ago deleted my badge for donating, or else its suddenly lapsed into invisibility :P Halp :o

2008-07-18 [sequeena_rae]: You have the priv, put the badge back yourself xxP

2008-07-19 [Nite_Owl]: Well I can put the actual badge back, but the special little yellow one I can't put back :/ Unless I'm being silly again....I'll check again to make sure

2008-07-19 [Hedda]: [Nite_Owl]: Fixed.

2008-07-19 [Nite_Owl]: Ah, thanks ^^' Sorry for the trouble

2008-10-27 [Doormat]: Omai, the Canadian dollar sucks hella :/.

2008-10-27 [Jeccabee]: um....k

2008-10-27 [Doormat]: Do I get that elftown donor thing in my house too?
Edit: Ohey, it's there. Thanks :D.

2008-11-17 [Alexi Ice]: So...*Doesn't want to sound dumb but...* What exactly is 10 euros in dollar bills? lol

2008-11-18 [Nite_Owl]: I think its between $15 and $20 or so. You can Google a currency exchanger to be sure though :)

2008-11-18 [Hedda]: It's more like $12:50 USD now. The dollar hasn't followed the US economy down the drain, but quite the opposite.

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.
