R.I.P Syrillian. (Formerly the Donation Thread) - Page 20

post #191 of 1325
Here's an idea I like. Let's see if we can get another $1000 donated by the end of the night tonight. If we can, ill be adding another item to the prize pool out of my own stash.

We are now officially at the $4000 mark including admins matching contributions. I know we can do it.

Well, not exactly, we are raising money until April 15th. ^_~

Admin is matching up to $5000, but people can donate beyond that. c:

Bad news all!

According to paypal, we are not allowed to raffle anything off in exchange for donations. It violates the tos for paypal and they have frozen admins account. Anyone wishing to get a refund will get one, no questions asked. Just shoot me a pm with your email address and you will be refunded. Anyone who has sent hardware to me to raaffle - it will be sent back. Anyone who hasn't sent anything, PLEASE DO NOT SEND IT!

Why does PayPal have to know, it could be strictly OCN business?

Also, what's the PayPal to donate to again?

EDIT - Herr durp, it's in the OP.

Donated 10$. Sorry it couldn't be more, but I'm a student and all I earn is EMA.

That's very unfortunate.

This whole thing is for a very good cause, and I for one will not be asking for a refund. I wasn't in it for the raffle, I was in it for the cause, and I still am.

I just hope that everyone else feels the same way about their donations.

Oh damn, it appears I'm having a sale. Everything for <insert shipping fee for prize>. PayPal can't say anything about that little gem.

Also, I donated because I wanted to donate, not because I wanted a cheap entry to some sort of contest. I assure you the rest of OCN donated for the cause aswell. The prize is just a bonus.

I can't imagine too many people were in this for the raffle.

Weird that PayPal found out, though...

Maybe someone who works for them is also an overclocking fanatic.
