    Gatorchatter revenue has crashed (ad rates plummeted) at least 60% since March due to COVID-19, so I thought I should at least put out a shameless plug for donations in the spirit of the holiday season. Many of you thought by buying Lifetime Memberships that meant I would leave you alone. Hell no! You can (and should) always give again. Just imagine the large slice of your life that would go missing if Gatorchatter was to go under.

    If you hate the idea of donating just to donate, there's another option. Lifetime memberships are on sale until 12/6 for $50, and assuming you already have one, consider buying one for someone else. There are still dozens of freeloading members that have been around for years (their user names are in black and not blue), and if they refuse to give a cent, you can do it for them. Just let me know when you donate what member you would like to help - you can do it anonymously if you wish.

    Perks of becoming a Gatorchatter Supporting Member:

    1) No ads, ever. On the desktop, on mobile, even on Tapatalk.
    2) Cool "Supporting Member" banner under your name.
    3) User name is displayed in blue instead of black.
    4) Access to the private Saloon section, where the rules are loosened just a bit.
    5) Access to the chat box archives.
    6) My perpetual love.
    7) You won't have me harassing you anymore about becoming one (but I'll still harass you for money).

    When you're ready to take the plunge, simply click the "Donations" tab at the top of the screen and follow the prompts. If you refuse to use Paypal for some reason yet still want to give, you can email me at gatorchatter@gmail.com.

    In all seriousness, thanks for being here. It's been a difficult year yet this place keeps me laughing damn near every day.

    Discuss.

        Brad, do you realize 25% of your life has been spent hanging out with us on a daily basis?

            What you should be doing is reaching for your wallet.

                  Ashamed. Definitely ashamed. There's room in my corner if you want to stand with me. Donkey has his own wing.

                    Ox - based on your recent posts denigrating our top-flight head coach and football program and even doubling down on your love of Chip Kelly - I was beginning to worry about you. You've just not been yourself lately. I assumed you were in a post-election funk, or had tired of wearing a mask to bed and just couldn't bear the wait for Trump's release of his Kraken any longer. But just hang on, brother. Trump's inauguration will be glorious, just like Carib and Loyal and all the deeply-connected, well-informed PF posters say it will be! I plan to celebrate for days!

                    But, I see now your mood and judgement have been clouded by money woes.

                    Well, buck up, my friend. You've done well for yourself, as your Miatas, Corvettes, Audis, and collection of Star Trek memorabilia will attest.

                    And if you need a few extra bucks after squeezing the last dollars out of the Chatter's boke-ass membership community, might I suggest starting a politics forum or a YouTube channel where you painstakingly document the restoration of other people's garbage? Those are can't-miss big money winners just waiting for you to shovel in the piles of dough.

                        I'm regretfully informing you all that I'm also accepting donations. Unlike Ox I'm not blaming it on the covid, I've always been a poor ass idiot. But rest assured just like Ox every penny I raise will be spent on gas station penis enlargement pills and a new pair of mexican cowboy boots with the long skinny toes that curl upwards.

                          How about microtransactions for things like changing someone elses avatar for a day or purchasing different colors or fonts for usernames, or temporarily banning someone else (this would need to be a hefty fee for a limited amount of time for it not to be abused). I’m certain there are all kinds of micro transactions you could come up with.

                          You’re welcome.

                                    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.
