Posted under fundraiser, fund drive, 2016, update, donations

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.

Keep it up!  We will get there.  By the way, the link doesn't work.
 
@shaggy: Link fixed. The original that I cut and pasted from a PM was truncated.
 
Sent my donation ! hope it helps
 
@douglie007: All donations help. Thank you!
 
Donations are always appreciated. For anyone that's been having intermittent syncing issues with the app recently, it's likely due to some performance issues that have been plaguing the site. If it becomes a problem again, I'll contact our server host to find out what's going on.
 
Not in the budget this month, but I think I'll finally pitch in when I have the cash. RFGeneration has been a godsend for my collecting cataloging needs.
 
Just donated what I could, this morning.
 
I made a promotional video feel free to spread around.
Keep up the awesome work everyone
