We are over halfway through the month, and are getting closer to reaching out goal of $1000.  As of today, we are a little behind schedule and are almost up to 50% of our goal with a total donation amount of $493.70. Remember, we will be taking donations for the fund drive through the month of February (you can donate here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypal), so be sure to donate during this time to get in on the raffle of great prizes donated by our staff. You can find more details regarding the rules of the raffle and how to enter here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16247.0

Some of you might be wondering, "Why should you donate to RF Generation?"  Our kind and hard working Technical Director, bickman2k dug up this classic, New Year's post from our Site Director, NES_Rules, detailing some site goals he wanted to hit back in 2010: http://www.rfgeneration.c...ts-2009-1258.php#comments.  These goals included:

50,000 total games;
4,000 total hardware entries;
60,000 scans; and
30,000 screenshots.

Compare these goals to our current site numbers after 2015. Just look at how we've grown in 5 years since those goals were set!  Today our database houses:

Over 103,000 total games;
Over 7,500 total hardware entries;
Over 130,000 scans; and
Over 67,000 screenshots.

These numbers speak volumes about our site members and the hard work and dedication they put into our database (not to mention our staff who looks over and approves each submission). And don't forget, our site is and has always been ad-free and is run solely on the donations from our members.  Also, if you haven't checked out our mobile app for Andriod, get on that!  There is no better way to track your collection while searching for games out in the wild or while at a convention. I've heard great reports on Twitter from people at MagFest who are using it.

The staff at RF Generation would like to take a moment to thank those who have donated so far:

Cobra
erikeskapade
Fleach
kam1kaz3nl77
Techie413
Voodoo Monkey
and a donor whose user name has yet to be determined


Thank you all! Please remember to PM me the email address you donated with, so that we can properly thank you during our weekly updates and provide you with the proper number of raffle tickets.  If you donated recently and do not see your name, you may have donated after we pulled numbers. If you don't see it, just send me a PM and I will check on your donation status.

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=paypalPLEASE 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!

That's right. You guys are AWESOME!!!!  Thanks so much to all the members who donated during the fund drive this year. Our goal was to raise $1000 to help with server costs for 2015 and you guys and gals responded by shattering our goal and donating a grand total of $1209.47!  RF Generation is a wonderful, free, and generous community, of which all of us are proud members.  Cheers to all of you and let's make it another year of great memories on this site!

Prior to this post, all members who donated should have received a PM detailing: (1) their donation amount, (2) the number of tickets they have earned for the raffle, and (3) a link to the Playcast's Episode #0, if they donated at least $20.  If you have donated and did not receive a PM, or if an amount or any other info is in error, PLEASE PM me (singlebanana) immediately so that we can fix it. Also, if you have not already done so, PLEASE reply to your PM to verify that you received my message and that the information is accurate. I will keep a list going and check off your name as the replies come in. After all donation information is verified, the drawing will be held for the prize lots. Please be patient and bear with me, since I want to make sure that everyone eligible for the raffle is included before the drawing is held. Any questions regarding the drawing may be directed toward me, but please check the rules thread first to see if your answer may be there:  http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=14799.0

Posted under Site News, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Holiday, Donation Drive, Donations

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone in RFGeneration Land! I hope you're all enjoying your time with family and friends, or maybe just a day off work or school. And I know you're going to be tracking all those new games you get right here at RFGen. After you add them to your collection here, you can brag about your holiday scores on our forum. And then you can use your new found games to fill in some missing info in our database. Heck, you can probably spend all day right here, and you know what, in all that time you'll find many things, but there's one thing you will not find, advertisements. It's true, you can turn off your Ad Block Plus and nothing will change, no annoying pop-ups or banner ads. I wish I could say we can do this because it doesn't cost anything to have a website, but unfortunately, it does get rather expensive paying for a host that gives us as much storage space and speed as we need to run a database as large as ours.

In order to stay afloat, we rely solely on the donations of our members. Its those member donations that have kept us online for the past 8 years and hopefully for many more years to come. And even though we have just as many (if not more) video games in our database as Wikipedia, we don't quite need the $16-20 million they raise during their donation drives. But we do need roughly $1000 for a year's worth of hosting, so whether its $1 or $100, every bit helps us out. And every cent donated to us (minus PayPal's fee of course) goes to paying for our server. Our staff doesn't get a dime, despite their hundreds of hours of work, and the money will not pay for any contest prizes, that comes out of own pockets.

Now that you're surely wanting to give us some of your money, I'll sweeten the deal even more for you. Every donor will receive the super awesome Donor rank on the forum, which will give you access to a top secret forum board where you often get to read about upcoming news and features before everyone else. And thanks to the RFGeneration Collectorcast there are some extra special prizes. Everyone donating at least $5 will get their name mentioned on the Podcast, those donating $20 or more will have all of their scores mentioned in the next episode, and those donating $30 or more will get the download to the Episode 0 of the podcast.  But wait, there's even more! The person who donates the most during our donation drive will receive an amazing prize pack including two items of their choice from the RFGeneration store, plus some other goodies that will be donated by staff members.

The donation drive will end on February 1st, so you have roughly one month to participate in the contest. If you just want to give and don't care about the contest, feel free to donate $5, $20, or whatever you feel your experience at RFGeneration is worth.

If you're a little burnt out on cash due to the holidays, don't worry, you'll still be able to donate all year long, and it'll be as much appreciated then as it is now. You just may have to wait a little longer to get that sweet Donor rank on the forum, as I'll only be checking for new donations once a month rather than daily.

Well I am very pleased to announce that due to the huge response we've gotten from the community we have already reached our goal of keeping the site funded throughout the rest of the year.  Over the past week, we've raised a total of $505 from 17 different donors.  As agreed, I will throw in the remaining $300 or so to cover the costs for the remainder of the year.  It's now official that RFGen is safely funded until 2012.  We will continue accepting donations through the rest of January and throughout the rest of the year.  These donations will go towards keeping the site running next year, so no matter when you donate you can be sure you're helping secure the future of the site.

Special thanks goes out to all of our donors who generously donated in our time of need: Ben, Brian, James, Michael, Peter, Scott, James, Scott, Ryan, Terry, Adam, Ryan, Stuart, Chris, Richard, Den, and Cobra Blade.  It's through your support (in both donations of time and money) that RFGen has become the great site and community it is today.  Again, if you donated and I haven't been able to add you to the donor group in the forums, please PM me so I can add you.

A big thanks to everyone that pitched in and as always, keep it on channel 3!

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.

A big thank you goes out to the following members who recently donated: James, Jesse, Hans, Holt, Brian, Maxime, David, Michael, and Richard

We currently have $162 in the account so we're still in need of additional donors to step up and help the cause.  Again, 100% of donations go towards offsetting the server costs of running the site.  It's the gracious help of our many donors and volunteers that keeps the RFGen community going strong.  We really appreciate those who have supported the site and the staff and members of RFGen send you our heartfelt thanks. 

To those who haven't donated, we are still trying to raise enough money to cover the site costs and every little bit helps.  Any amount you can afford to donate would be greatly appreciated.

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.

It's that time of the year again.  The RFGen server account has run day again and we're asking for donations from our community to help with the server costs.  As always, 100% of proceeds go directly to the server costs to keep the site up and running.  Any prizes for contests are donated by the staff.  Donation money is strictly used for paying the $85/month server bill.

It's the donations of the RFGen community that keep the site running on a daily basis.  We've discussed the idea of having ads throughout the site, but as long as we can keep the site supported by members of the community we will continue to do so.  All databases, collection tools, and forums are provided free of charge and are supported by our volunteer staff and the donations of the community, and we want to keep it that way!

We appreciate all who have helped out in the past and we thank all of you who continue to support the RFGen community.  Without you there is no RF Generation.

You can follow this link to make a donation.

Thanks in advance and keep it on channel 3!

PS: Don't forget to PM myself or one of the staff when you give and we'll change your status to donor, which gives you some additional forum privileges Smiley
