Tomorrow, we kick off our annual RF Generation Community Donation Drive. Our goal this year is to once again raise at least $1000 by February 29, 2016. This money will be used to pay server costs and site improvements, and any additional funds will also be put toward future hosting expenses. We hope that you will consider contributing to keep RF Generation a free, fun, and useful site for yourself, other members, and those who haven't been fortunate enough to find us yet. We only ask that you donate what you can and even a small amount, like a few bucks, goes a long way and is very appreciated. Donations are accepted via PayPal and you can donate by following this link: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypal. PLEASE be sure to PM me your RF Generation handle and the email address you used to donate so that we can thank you on the front page and determine your number of raffle tickets; only your handle will be used and all donation amounts are private.
For those of you who donate at least $10, you will be entered into a raffle for some fantastic prize lots donated by our generous staff. Rules for this raffle and prize listings are listed below and can also be found on this thread: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16247.0. And don't worry, even through the fund drive officially starts tomorrow, if you donate today, your contribution will still go toward the fundraiser and the raffle.
Thank you for your donations and we hope that RF Generation will remain your #1 choice for tracking your collection for years to come!

As we do every year, it's once again time to support a good cause and give back to RF Generation. RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, non-profit site in which all database contributions come from member submissions. Our unpaid staff works hard to update and improve database content, keep front page articles fresh and informative, and work tirelessly on podcasts for your listening pleasure. However, the costs associated with running this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our servers running into 2017. All donations will go directly to our server account and our goal is to raise at least $1000 by the end of February 29, 2016, which combined with donations from the previous year, will keep us going through 2017. I will provide updates on the front page throughout February to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal and thank all donors by name for their contributions.
Starting February 1st, we ask that you donate any amount you can, if you are able. As an added incentive, our generous staff has once again donated some very nice items to raffle off to donors who contribute at least $10. An explanation of the raffle rules are below. Raffle prize lots will be announced a few days prior to the beginning of the fund drive, since we are still getting those together. However, I can say without a doubt that the donations this year are fantastic and include systems, video games, board games, and video game memorabilia, among other things!

The season of giving is upon us and what better way to support a good cause than to donate to RF Generation. RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, non-profit site in which all database contributions come from our members. Our staff (who are all unpaid) works hard to provide content and to keep information up-to-date and user friendly. However, the costs associated with running this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our servers running through 2015. All donations will go directly to our server account and our goal is to raise $1000 by December 31, 2014, which combined with donations from the previous year, will keep us going through 2015. I will provide updates on the front page throughout the following weeks to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal. You can donate by following the link provided here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypal.
We ask that you donate any amount you can, if you are able, and this year our generous staff has donated some very nice items to raffle off to donors. An explanation of the raffle rules and prize lots are below and you can see more pictures of the prizes on our discussion thread (http://www.rfgeneration.c...x.php?topic=14799.new#new).

Apparently none of you guys took advantage of spring break this year and decided to instead stick around rfgen submitting to the database. We had quite an impressive month in March with 9 different members making 100+ submissions for the month. Itís especially nice to see some members from the PAL region working hard on filling in those gaps. So letís give a special thanks to the top 5 submitters of this month: Bildstar, Fragems, The Razemeister, Apolloboy and Sirgin!!
And donít forget about the amazing approval staff we have. Shadow Kisuragi and Paully3433 were prolific this month and took on the brunt of those submissions approving well over 600 of them each.
Just as importantly though, we want to thank all of you for having a good sense of humor. It seems that many of you guys forgot, or were just unaware, of how important April Fools is to us here at rfgeneration. This yearís April Fools Blog suckered in quite a few of our members Luckily the staff here are as honest as they are humorous and disabled the donate button for the day so that nobody was duped into donating under false pretences.
Itís great to know that so many of the members here are willing to pony up for our services, but rest assured that wonít be the case. Rfgeneration has always been a community driven site. It was founded with the idea that site can be, and so far always has been, supported by its members. Every year you guys have stepped up and donated enough to keep the site both free and ad free. So even though you donít have to worry about being forced to pay to access our database we are always accepting donations to cover our server and other costs. That donation button at the top of the page should be functioning properly again now
With all that said there was a kernel of truth in the April Fool Blog. The Collectorcast has been successful and because of the size of the episodes we are quickly running out of space on our podomatic account. The cost to upgrade to the next storage level is quite sizable. To help out Duke, Bil and myself with this financial strain the benevolent staff here have offered to host some of our older episodes through the site so that we can lower our storage on podomatic. A landing page for the collectorcast is also in the works.
So in summary, thanks to everyone for supporting the site with your time, generosity, knowledge and support (except for Zagnorch of course )!!
