A couple of months ago, we held the annual donation drive to raise money to pay the server bills for the coming year.  Throughout the two months, we raised a total of $218, which at a rate of $85/month is enough to get us halfway through March before we run out.  So as a last ditch effort, we're making a final push to raise donations so that RFGen can make it through another year. 

As we have said time and time before, this site is run completely by volunteers and operated on donations from the community.  Any money donated is strictly used for paying off the operating costs of running the site (aka the server bill).  It's because of the generous support of the RFGen community that we've been able to provide the tools and community forums that we have all come to love.

As an added incentive, I will personally match all donations given in the month of January until we raise enough to pay off the the bills for the remainder of the year.  Let's keep this thing going for another year!

You can follow this link to make a donation.

Thanks in advance and remember to keep it on channel 3!

PS: If you've donated and aren't a member of the donor group in the forums, remember to send me a PM so I can get you added.

That very generous of you! I will make sure to get some cash in next payday.
I usually don't have much extra cash but I'll put in what I can.
"I will personally match all donations given in the month of January"

Very ambitious and generous of you.  We'll have to see how much we can hurt your wallet between now and January 31st Smiley
I couldn't remember the last time I donated, so I just made another.
I'm broke right now, and have been for a little while now, but I'll see if I can't sell off some items to help with the site like Barracuda is doing. I've got to get rid of the stuff before I move anyways Smiley
$25 from me on Wednesday.
I'll send over a donation soon.
I threw $15 in the ring. I value this site and am willing to help support it.
I put in another small donation in.  I don't know where my collection would be without RFG. Smiley
Yet again, I am amazed at the generosity of the RFGen members.  We've had a strong response within the first 24 hours, raising almost $200 so far.  We're still only about half way there, but if this first day is any indication I think it's a safe bet RFGen will be around into 2012.  Thanks a ton to those who donated in the past day!  I'll make an official update with all the proper recognitions at the end of the week.  We've still got a ways to go to make our goal, but we're off to a great start!
I'd like to, but I'm unemployed.  I should hopefully be starting a job sometime this week though.  Is there an expiration date to how long you'll be excepting donations, or is this a continuous event?  I'd like to contribute, but I don't know if I'll be able to until I've got a couple of paychecks under my belt, and that could be a little while.
I sent some your way.
I donated $20 the other day
@Ack: Donations are accepted year round. Smiley

I've always thought that if every member donated $1 this site would be set.    Maybe you should have a $1 per year membership fee?      I think for the work that you guys do and the service that this site provides, no one would be able to argue with $1 per year.
I for one would not mind seeing the occasional Google ad or perhaps Amazon affiliate link. We all buy games...why not buy some through Amazon with a link from RFGen that gives you guys a little bit of money. Just a thought.
I am going to try and do something for the donors.
It won't be anything extravagant but i am thinking random drawing for something....
No promises just yet... keep your eyes peeled. Wink

Further details as they develop.
Donation sent.
Donation officially sent today. I love you, glorious website.
I'll be donating later tonight.

But I'm curious, who is your hosting provider that is charging $85 per month? I figure the biggest portion of that is bandwidth?
Sent. :-)
Montecarlo hosting, and yes...we need a VPS to support the bandwidth and custom scripts that the site uses.

Thanks again to everyone for the donations!  We've very close to meeting our goal, hopefully by this weekend I can announce it officially.  Again if you donated and I haven't set your account up as a donor account, send me a PM and I'll get you added.
Even though I've been here just briefly, I've gotten quite a bit of mileage out of this place. I could definitely spare a five-spot for the cause...

...as soon as I see how well a few online sales shake out.
Donation sent.  Thanks again for all that you guys do to keep this site up and running.
Donation sent.
May RFG keep going strong well into the year 2099!
Just put in a grain of salt. This is the best video game site out there period.
