Is it intended that the donation titles are $137,500.00 USD and $27,500.00 USD?

I mean... seems slightly excessive lol...

Time to update these to something more realistic? IDK who in their right mind would pay that. Are people still setting these up in 2017?

There's already been so much discussion about this it's uncanny. You should have searched before posting and you would have realized that the donation amounts were back when it was to keep the forum running. Now with ads they're not necessary but since it is a Bitcoin-based forum, the prices stay the same, in terms of Bitcoins.
And don't beg.

I didn't find any recent topic about it. I didn't want to revive something dead... I removed the 'begging'... it wasn't really begging.. I didn't think anyone would do it lol

A quick search of "donator" will bring up several threads:

Nope.

As mentioned, we did it back in the day to pay for some much needed updates per theymos suggestion. Very few stepped up actually. Why would a title even matter? It is ancient history.

signature campaigns annoy me.

One of the reasons for not lowering the entry amounts to gain VIP and Donator status, is stated to be that it is an unfair action to lower the price according to the increased fiat value.

I wonder how you as donator would experience a scenario where the amounts will indeed get lowered ~ would you be bothered in all honesty?

Good question. For me it is just a title not a technical reputation. What I do like about it, is that it shows I stepped up early on to support this website financially. I doubt that will ever be required again. So yes, I do like the fact that I can indicate I was an early supporter and would not want to lose that significance in the title.

Some will care and some likely wont, but it's a moot point because theymos has said several times he wont change or lower the current ranks. I think some additional donator ranks (with different titles and perks) should be added though (as I have mentioned numerous times before). Prices should be pegged to fiat to prevent what happened with the current ones. Countless people have shown interest in donating if only the price was lower and I think additional ranks with different names wont displease any of the current donators so I think this is something we should strongly consider. As I mentioned before, if we allow some of the perks to have include a bigger signature that will put a stop to a lot of account sales as well because people can just donate to the forum instead of giving the money to a possibly shady black market account seller.

I like your ideas hilariousetec. How about "contributor"?

That was actually one of the titles I suggested. Think some of the other ones were 'Supporter' and 'Patron' amongst others.

That is fine but I don't think forum needs funds anymore to support the payment for the servers or the new forum to be developed (since a lot of money is already invested into that) and for regular expenses forum adds are enough.
If someone that deserves to get paid are moderators which I believe are not paid as much as they're suppose to be.So yes contributors amount could be completely dedicated to the forum mods.
