I don't like asking for donations, but right now I'm looking at a little over 1,750 gold to send out a single announcement to almost 4,000 guild members, so I have enough in the guild's current funds to send out a few announcements before the funds run out. I'm sorry for having to ask.
Anyways, what do you guys think? Would you be willing to help donate a little to help me cover the costs of announcements? Do you find guild announcements annoying, even if they're not sent too often? Any other thoughts?
Thanks in advance to those who take the time to give some feedback.
Please note: Anyone who doesn't want to receive guild announcements can opt-out from their account settings page. I don't expect anyone who opts-out to help donate (and you don't have to tell me if you do decide to opt-out)... but I hope that me saying so won't send tons of members rushing to opt out.
|I just wanted to say thank you so very much to everyone for all of yor kindness and genousity. You guys are wonderful. When I reluctantly decided to ask for donations for the guild, I never in a million years thought that we'd gather so many funds so quickly. I'm quite touched, honoured and humbled right now, and wanted to say thank you so very much. *big hugs for everyone*
We should be ok for now, but if anyone else wants to donate then of course they can. I don't have any major announcements planned for anytime soon, but what donations have been made will help a lot whenever I do have to make an announcement.
Thanks again everyone!
Adding an edit for questions that are added to this thread.
Q: How do I donate to the guild?
A: On the guild's homepage, scroll down to the bottom and you should see a space where you can donate to the guild. Just input the amount of your donation, enter your password, and click the "donate" button. The funds are added to the guild's account immediately.
Q: What kind of information will be included in guild announcements?
A: I will be letting you know what's been added to the guild, like any major projects I've completed - a new subforum opened, a bunch of stickies added at once, and so on. I may also include minor updates, if it's a long time between major updates, and I'll let you guys know what's going on with me and how active I might be in the near future.
