    A while ago, I told the board that online advertising revenue was under assault by adblockers and other things, and I was contemplating making some areas of Gatorchatter pay areas in order to take up some of that slack. After a lot of thought I have decided to shelve those thoughts and keep Gatorchatter just as free as ever. However, I received some great advice in that thread, and some of it stuck in my head. It was suggested that once or twice a year I simply have some kind of fundraising window to give people the opportunity to donate to the site if they are so inclined. And that’s why we’re here.

    Now, this is not a request for free handouts. I am resurrecting some things I’ve done in the past, and that is giving t-shirts and other items away in exchange for donations. Unlike prior years, these items will be made to order, so after the window closes, I will be ordering them online to all the specifications that are given to me. There are several items that have never been offered before

    Before I get to those items, I want to make something clear. This group of people has shown their generosity to me many different times in the past, and you have no idea how much it’s appreciated. I don’t want ANYONE to think they are obligated to donate, or feel guilty for not doing so. You contribute plenty just by showing up here every day.

    First, Lifetime Supporting Memberships are BACK for $75! When purchased through this system, you will be automatically switched over. One year memberships are also still available for $20. If you want to know the perks involved with a supporting membership, see this thread:

      ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS:

      This system is different than in years past, so please read carefully. First let me say that if anyone wants to simply donate and not order any items, they can easily just click the "DONATE" tab at the top of the page and be connected to Paypal as always.

      For everyone else, this is going to be a system of first buying credits through Paypal, and then being able to use those credits in the shop. The first thing to do is click or hover over your "Wallet", which is seen in the green bar at the top:

      [​IMG]

      Once there, you will see an option to "Purchase":

      [​IMG]

      Then you will be taken to the credits page. Here you can select the amount you want to buy. In addition to buying them for yourself, you have the option of gifting credits to other members who may be less fortunate. The "Purchase" button will take you to Paypal where you can purchase your credits.

      [​IMG]

      After purchase, click on the "Products" tab to bring up the list of items you can purchase with your credits.

      [​IMG]

      The list will come up:

      [​IMG]

      When opening up a products page, you will see the number of credits you purchased on the top left, and the products and their pricing on the right. Click "Purchase" to complete the transaction. Credits will automatically be debited from your dashboard.

      [​IMG]


      Okay, after ordering swag, the last thing I'll need to know is where to ship them, so I'll need you to send me a private message or email me at oxrageous@aol.com. If you email me, make sure to let me know what your screen name is.

      If you order one of the packages, I WILL NEED SHIRT SIZES as well as your address. Hats and visors are one-size-fits-all.

      I'm going to be accepting swag orders until August 13th. At that point, I will be making an order to everyone's specifications. I will leave the store open for the rest of the year, but I won't be making orders any more than once a month. So as long as you're willing to wait, you can order after the 13th.

      Thanks everyone!

            What Ox has done in his spare time is amazing. Everyone needs to order.

            (Except me. I'm too cheap to pay that for a T-shirt.)

            j/k I'm buying one.

            (I better get a free beer at the tailgate.)

                    Fully agreed regarding the pirate flag.

                    Ox, can we get black or charcoal t-shirts with the pirate logo added as an option?

                    What size are you? I think I have some of the black pirate ones in stock that didn’t sell two years ago.

                        Still have some of those in stock. If you actually buy something for once I'd be happy to throw one in.

                          I think I have one of everything youve ever sold except the flag and visor.

                          And I want a pirate flag

                            I was burglarized a couple of years ago and some of that stuff went missing (the shirts were all 5XL). Now I know where they went.

                              Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
